Good comparison between the GenII Hayabusa and the ZX-14

I've had lots of bikes over the last 20 years. Since 2001 I have ridden nothing but Hayabusas. I've never had anyone say anything negative to me about them.

I don't lower, stretch or chrome out my Busas though.

I just picked up an orange/blk 2008 yesterday. It's a great bike, better in every way than the first generation. The tail looks much better in person. I was concerned about that myself.

One thing I am a little surprised about is that people say that's too much power. I love the feeling of the acceleration, and certainly don't think it's too much power. It's pretty quick, but I wouldn't mind some more umph.

I do know one thing, there's certainly no way I could ever go back to my CBR600.

I don't see why we all can't just get along.

Like another person stated, I would personally rather spend the cash on performance mods instead of stretching it etc etc..

I own an 08 busa myself and this is my first bike so I really have nothing to compare it to but I've always liked the look of a hayabusa. The fact that it looks full and not empty and exposed. I personally don't regret buying the bike.. I love it! It doesn't hurt my feelings when I read hate posts about the looks or just the bike as a whole... Hell, some people just jump the bandwagon and go along with what everyone else says just so they don't feel left out Were all human and to each their own. If you buy a bike and regret buying it because of what other people think, then all I have to say is you bought it for all the wrong reasons I might make a comment about how another bike looks but I would never say I hate it just because its not the same as the one I ride. Thats just childish

Having owned a Hayabusa, I can say the bike handles better than I could ride it. The power is amazing, the bad thing for me is the riding position, i bought one for a sport tourer, and could never get comfortable on it, I tried a Tobin seat, Gen mar bar risers, heli bars, double bubble windshield, lowered etc. I liked the bike, but couldn't use it for what i wanted. That's when i bought my FZ1 which was everything that I was looking for pretty much.

As for "looks" that wasn't an issue for me, I didn't even think about it. The Busa was designed for good aero.

I DON'T like the "stretched" stuff, IMO if you want a drag bike fine, but why would you ruin the handling of a bike by doing that to it on the street?

Nothing wrong with the FZ1 ....I had my eyes on them too but went with the Busa because of the unbelieveable amount of aftermarket parts available.

Either Love it or hate it

Alright Folks within the next few words one will tell that I am a BUSA owner. Lets take a moment to discuss some of the things people either love or hate about the Busa.
- The Busa is one ugly bike: Thats a matter of opinion or the lack of ability to form your own.
- The Busa is not a good first bike: What difference does it make if the individual can handle it and U cant! I'ts called ability. (and its my first bike).
- The Busa has Too much power: Well Yes it does have lots of power but so does ur 600, 750 and 1000; power to weight ratio. This statement is probably the dumbest ever for any rider, Power of any bike is controlled by the RIDER and not the bike. Your brain controls your right hand. so if you cant control your right hand; Well you guessed it!
- The BUSA cant hold in the twisties: You have obviously never or dont know how to ride a BUSA. I have less than 1/4in chicken strip on my stock BT-56's only because the foot peg lean limiters. But its ok there is this thing called max lean angle for a reason and I'm neither crazy or stupid!
-[B]Stock or Stretch:[/B]I personally like mine all stock cause I can ride it like it was meant 2B ridden. I'm an every day rider.
So for all the HATERS consider these points of interesting facts B4 U put Ur boot in your mouth making silly unsubstantiated statements such as those written above. Holla Back!

Wow

How can you dumb asses actually think your Busa handles as well or better then a 600, 750 or almost every liter bike on the twisties, or that it's about the rider? Seriously...
The Busa is a straight line bike, it's about physics seriously.

Thank god I own the Busa Killer cause now I can talk ****, yah the BMW S1000RR, bows...
