I don't care too much for the paint scheme or the long extended swing arm.

yep...looks a little "flaming" to be a busa...

+all that money into the design and thats the best exhaust layout they can come up with...an undertail exhaust of the sort...with the piping out in the middle of no where?

I have the mag and the bike is really sweet, even though I'm not a fan of the Busa..........

Yeah..with that exhaust... their options are limited with that particular swingarm.... now if they went with a SSS then maybe they could have made it a bit cleaner!

i'm by far a busa lover, but i liked the way this one was fabricated. i like the way the mag describes it too. they said it no longer looks all rounded off like a half-sucked cough drop. it's definately time for an update on the busa image. they all look the same. this one breaks the mold a bit.

I'd like to get a better look at how they mounted that rear brake and the swingarm suspension...The colors and graphics are personal choices...don't pay much attention to them...the fabrication looks good...but yeah, he could have streamlined that exhaust a little
