Re: OOOOOhhhhh

NH,
Just to be an @$$ and critique your description, I BELIEVE that the 99 Busa is the fastest mass produced bike going through the trap at 192 where the newer ones are limited to 186. Like I said, I think this is right, but I may just be pulling it outta nowhere.

Re: OOOOOhhhhh

That's either NOT a '99 (as they only came in one color, copper/silver) or it's been repainted. And the '99 pre-ban bike was good for 194 right off the showroom floor, fyi...

I've got considerable saddle time on three, one of which is a '99.

I will always love the Hayabusa. Say what you will.

Re: OOOOOhhhhh

Ya know...I hated the busa when it came out...and I still am not the biggest fan...but as I get older, its starting to grow on me...maybe its the lines are finally working for me...not sure. but it has the power, thats for sure. I would pick it over a ZX12R any day. We will see what Honda poops out though for the XX replacement...if anything.

Team Honda - well sorta...

lol, you sold your SV less then a year ago for a 954 which you rode for ~6 months? and you're trading that in for a tractor, or looking to, I dont think there is much we could say except you're about as bike-swap-happy as me. I like the busa too, came close to buying a few...the RR's always won, just wanted something smaller and with less ease of attaching a rodent vacuum to it.


TCT/NH: Good pics as well. Its no wonder you hit the blue mark so quick. You guys' auctions definetely look the role and have more then enough pics to satisfy even my curiousity about every detail of the bike, too many pics on an ebay auction is never a BAD thing ever

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

I didn't know you smoked crack.

Do some searching or simply call a Suzuki shop and ask em. 99's came in two color schemes.

Re: OOOOOhhhhh

That thing is hellafast, but I'll tell you this...

The fit and finish on that thing is pure unadulterated

Everytime I make a trip to the dyno, Sabin has one of those things up there. The fit and finish is always horrible, fairings look cheap, aluminum looks cheap, cheap looking instrument cluster, hump, or seat cowl, or whatever it's called, it's a big mother f'in hump if you ask me. Maybe I'm spoiled, but the Hondas sure look better.

22 days until it begins...

I stand corrected. You're right, the Bus came in two schemes in 1999.

Re: OOOOOhhhhh

Wasn't the copper scheme much more rare, making it that much more valuable?

From what I know, it would seem so. Plus most all the moto-rags test flogged the copper variant, putting that image in folks' minds when they read about the bike that stomped all others. And is still stomping them today.

Did you read the Busa v. ZX12-R shootout in this month's Motorcyclist? Another score for the Bus, just like I predicted.

Suzuki, like 'em or not, knows how to make fast motorcycles.
