I read a shootout between the 1200S, ZX12R, and the Busa. On some of the charts like top speed, hp, torque, the GSXR 1000 was thrown in on the top speed and it is about 15-20 mph faster and around 7K cheaper. the ergos are more like a sport tourer. It has a good amount of torque and the hp is just OK. I'd stick with the proven winners if you ask me.

Don't all the bike makers have a rule not to sell a bike that will go over 180? Course you can get the chip or whatever to bypass the limiter.

And remember what an old man once told me....there is always someone faster...

The BMW 1200S is also an inline four. Maybe the busa and ZX12 are considered fully faired, not "partially streamlined".

I think its a gentlemen's rule. We/they don't want the man to start regulating it.

Shows what I know. I have hardly looked twice at the Bimers. I do know that the Busa & ZX12 are considered Sport Tourers.

I thought it was but I thought I was just wrong... I can't keep the Beamers letters / numbers straight... I know my co-worker keeps telling me what they mean but I can't remember...
