yeah because we all know Camaros rock!! but enuff of that...I agree the ZX12 is a beast and has been around longer than the busa. The busa was Suzuki's ultimate beast ride, made to compete with the ZX12 and become King of the world. now whether they've accomplished that is up for debate.Gas Man said:Steve, you're missing one big bike. The ZX-12R is the beast to take out the Busa. It has been around for nearly as long as the Busa or longer. They have been like the Mustang vs camera. I won't say anything more, so that I don't start a big debate on which is faster...
01Katana said:Hey, I appreciate the input, but nobody talked about the ZZR ? I am only interested in a sport/tour bike, as I do occasionally have a passenger on the back, and of course, I want her to be comfortable as much as possible ! I ride 5 or 6 hours at a time, so therefore, the tour style bikes are what I'm interested in ! However, Thank's again to all....
Sounds like you had a blast riding those mountains, sounds like a good time!! and yeah, the 12 ninja had been the king beast of all liter bikes for many years, till suzuki took it upon themselves to take that throne with the busa. Personally, I'll take a 12R anyday over a busa. I just think they are leaner, and more comfortable to ride..not near as bulky..but thats just me01Katana said:Hello everybody ! :seeya:
I did a little looking this weekend, and the shop I was in had a ZZR1200 in black that looked pretty good, but what really caught my eye was a, you guessed it, ZX12R in a bright blue ! I had dropped my Goldwing off at the shop back home in FL to get some brake work done, and when I questioned my buddy/mechanic, he said the same thing about the ZX12R. What he said was, the [email protected] was really the first king of the big sport bikes, and that Suzuki came out with the 'busa to dethrone the ZX12R. This from a 'Busa owner ! I may go back and take a closer look at the 12R in a week or two, maybe the price will come down, as the dealership is needing the floor space for all the '05 models coming in ! This is the same place where I bought my Katana, and I feel that they made me a good deal on the Kat, so who know's, I may change brand loyalty in a week or two ! On another note, while in Augusta, GA I hopped on the Kat, and rode over into the Blue Ridge mountains, traveling up Hwy 129 out of Athens, Ga for a great little weekend run on some twisty stuff. Weather was perfect, and all the tourist traffic, and bike traffic has pretty much left for the year, so I had a blast ! :here: Later,
