I admit when I hopped on the one I rode it felt better than I expected. I am used to 600's and I've also owned a ZX9r and two R1's and a ZX-11 a long time ago and assumed it would be like the ZX-11 but it felt alot better and of course had more power...again...nice bike and enjoy. :cheers:Thanks, Z06boy. I love it. I have over 700 miles on it already. She could have over 1000 miles within one week of purchase. The longest ride I've done so far since I bought it was 302 miles last Sunday.
He likes it a lot. He rode it down to the MotoGP race last July from Seattle. As far as price, I have no idea. He's loaded and doesnt like to talk about money. He traded in a 99 ZRX1100 and an 06 KLR650 for it. Both were paid for so I dont have any clue what his balance would have been after the trade. Im sure he got a very good deal though.Hey Rider, just curious. How much did your brother-in-law pay for his Busa? How does he like it? I absolutely love it. It's funny, I went to Criswell Powersports last Wednesday to show it to my buddy who always worked on my R1 and it only had 136 miles on it. Before I left, he said, "see you back in about a week for the 1,000 mile service." I said, "ok." I guess that's what's gonna happen.
is it HID?You know another thing I like about it, the headlight. Man, that thing is bright. The day I bought it, I went out at 10:00 until 11:30 pm and again the next day at 4:00 until about 6:00 am. I rode part of RT355 and it even lights up the trees on both sides of the road. And when I hit the high beam, it's like BAM! That projector just lights everything in front of me.
How do you think the Busa compares to the R1? One of the guys I ride with has an 07 Busa. Said it handles better than his 06 R1 did.I admit when I hopped on the one I rode it felt better than I expected.
