Not to mention if you threw a lil turbo on top of that... with a dash of go go juice and thats one BAD moe fo!

And 240hp to the tire is not to shabby!

240HP is like what 98 mustang GTs had to the wheels.

Thats great! Now they just need to figure out how to reduce the weight of that bike by 100+lbs.

I love passing Busas at the gap. The ones decent in skill try to straight line queen me by nailing it out of the corners, but I just stuff them entering to return the favor.

nope. not worried about them at all. can still outcorner either on an old GS500E easily. so screw worrying, I just gotta stay in some twisty roads, and I'm good.

ill agree, your average busa rider will get smoked in the twistys by your average 600 rider, but most guys who can really really get down in the twistys are riding 600's or liters. put one of those guys on a busa, and your average 600 riding twisty guy cant hang.
busas can drag peg too ya know

Nope, because a Busa is a fat pig without much clearance. A decent rider on a liter will smoke a decent rider on a Busa. There is a reason you don't see good twisty riders on Busa's and see a lot of them on 600's.

fine a decent rider on a 600 won't smoke a decent rider on a busa, just depends on the road. If it is the dragon, the 600 will win; if it is the skyway, the 600 will lose. Depends on how tight and curvy the road is.

actually all i was saying was that it takes more skill to outride a 600 in the twistys if you're on a busa, but it can be done. you just dont see it because if you do have that much skill, chances are you're riding a 600 or liter instead of that "fat pig" of a bike. thats all.

that I will agree too

It's a heavy bike, no one really wants to sling that thing around in the twisties.
