Testing 2008 Busa- Brocks Performance

Guys,
I am at the 2008 Hayabusa World Press Introduction and it's not possible to ride the new Busa without comparing it to the ZX-14.

I have daily updates on my site:
Brock's Performance

You need to slap those people at Cycle World and get them to update their report. J/K LOL!

They reported "CW Road Test Editor Don Canet" ... ran a 10.046 ET, with a trap speed of 143.8 mph" and that "Aaron Yates was able to muster a 10.08 pass" and that "Don was the fastest at the event when I spoke to him on the phone a few minutes ago."

Congrats on the 9.98. However, that's more than a little short of the predictions on the Busa board ranging from 9.0 to 9.5 stock.

CycleWorld aren't in the nines yet.

Update from CycleWorld:

"""I just hopped on the bike, warmed the rear tire in the burnout box and did my run," said Canet with his usual astronaut-like nonchalance. That first run (on a stock bike, by the way) resulted in a 10.046 ET, with a trap speed of 143.8 mph. He decided to see if flipping the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS ) switch to the softer "B" setting would reduce the bike's tendency to wheelie in 1st gear for his next pass.

"It kept it from wheelie-ing, but I didn't get as good a launch as I'd like. I think it might lead to better times, but it would take a few passes." The second run didn't turn as good a time as the first, nor did the first run beat our best 9.78-second pass on the Kawasaki ZX-14 at it's launch. ""

Their SECOND pass at the 14s launch was 9.78.

It's amusing to see your discussions with the Busa faithful on the MANY other boards I see you on. Diff username but the same Smokin. LOL!! Mostly I lurk........

You're right - most of them are convinced that the old Busa is as fast or faster than the "old" 14. .......... and they base that on WHAT???

I'm waiting for Monday (Dealer Show) to find out if there's an 08 14 in my future.

The Busas ram air is crap due to the design of the fairing.

There is nothing til above 120 then it slowly rises to c.4hp.

The new one has the same front end and air box so shouldn't be any different.

He saw 185 on his SPEEDO ... We all know that the factory speedo reading is way off..

We all knew this was going to happen, or at least we should have. The more power you add the more finese it will take to harness it. You can't shove 20 more hp in an engine and just say go faster. That extra hp will only make it harder to launch and extra hp will only be made up down the track, but you will still lose a few tenths or hundredths on your 60ft times.

Time will tell fellows, I personally think the 08 busa will out perform the current 14, but the 08 14 maybe not.

a few horse power here or there is not going to make a differance.....99.9% of the people that is going to buy a either a 14 or a busa will not notice a differance between the the two. Guys get hung up on the numbers too much...

Since the '08 14 is yet to be released, if you actually check Brock's tests you'll note that the test is against a "legacy" 'busa
