Well theyre really close bikes as far as size goes....Alot of people have busa's if you want somethin different you would probably look at the 14...1299 v 1352 < anyone else remember that that was a popular mod to busa's a + 53cc build up.

Other than what anyone wants to belive this could just be a nagging match.

I saw a drag between the ZX-14 and a 'Busa. The ZX-14 won. I know it all has to do with the rider, but I think the riders were pretty equal.

completly stock, the same rider is faster on a 14 by a tenth or so, but no racer ever leaves his bike stock, so id go with a busa (and eventually i will), atleast until the performace aftermarket availability for the 14 catches up to the busa. but supposedly the busa is gettin a big makeover, so basically this is a topic that can go on forever. if you dont wana go faster than 8.90, id say buy whichever one looks the best to you, cuz itll cost about the same to get either bike there.(pipe, powercommander, lowered, sprockets,) my

I'm not a fan of either but I'll take the busa over the 14 by looks alone.

this video seemed to imply that both bikes are relatively equal I doubt any mortal riders could tell the difference.

I have ridin both and my vote goes to the Busa. The simple fact that the difference in these bike is a tenth off makes it easy for me to choose. Close to 100cc difference between both of them and the Kawai is faster by a tenth? Thats not a real good sales pitch. Plus we all know the Busa has more lurking in Suzukis r-n-d.

I think the 14 is awful looking cuz i dont like the plain plastic look of the bike. Really dont see how anybody could not like the busa tho except maybe for the fact that there are so many on the streets.

I think both are great looking and both could be deadly on the drag strip with some mods but even with tweeking the 14 has been dominating and with the help of roaring toyz and other custom shops has even passed the ugly duck phase just my two
