Give me a busa with taller windscreen and taller bars, and I'll see you on Highway 95 in Utah.

actually I think the busa has pretty decent bars for my height, much better than the gixxers combined with the body style, but the windscreen, yeah that stock one, why'd they even bother.

havent ridden any of em so id be going on looks alone but id say Interceptor, Gotta love the single sided swingarm and the nice sporty look, though there may be some other bikes u could attach hard backs to to be a better all around bike... but i guess touring range is a major neccesity for touring...so that eliminates a lot of nice comfy and fast other bikes....

Can a busa make 230miles on a tank?????

Motorcycle Consumer News tested a Hayabusa in 1999. It has a 5.8 gallon tank. They got a high of 46.5 MPG, and a low of 25.2, probably during dragstrip and high-speed testing. It averaged 38.5 MPG, so it would be close.
