I hope nobody yells at me. Here goes...

What are the major benefits to buying an XX over the Suzuki, other than looks?

Is the Honda a lot more comfortable?

Has anyone compared the two?

Thanks!!!!!

I've never ridden an XX but Busa's are very comfy. The Busa doesn't handle anywhere near as good as my 929, but if I had ridden it first I wouldn't own a 929.

Now, I have the best of both worlds, my recently divorced brother keeps his Busa in my garage. I get to choose which bike to ride, and not pay the note or insurance on the Busa.:thumb:

I know it's alot heavier than my 929, but the suspension is also alot softer. Great for commuting back and forth to work on the superslab.

I have a 929. I was looking at a Busa with 1900 miles on it, but I think I want an XX. I love the 929, but I think the XX is more versatile since it can be a tourer.

The 'busa is technically a sport tourer. At least that's what one buddy's insurance company classified his :idunno: Personally, I prefer the looks of the 'busa. It's ugly, but it kinda grows on ya

If you realy want to see them tested head t head get the fast bikes video called MACH 2, carnage from calais to cannes. Its a blast to watch. I love watching the busa slide around the corners. The guys doing the testing are some asshats named (Frosty) Rob Frost, (Shakey) Shane Byrne, Gary Mason and Neil Pidduck.

I'm sure it'll be the fastest, but my dealer says it'll cost around $15000! :eek:

Not thinking it will sell well if it has a price tag like that. not worth the extra bones for something just barely faster than a busa.

I thought I wanted a busa...until I sat on one. I don't fit. That is crazy! The thing is a 1300cc bike that won't accomodate a tall rider. The crease (for lack of a better word) on the sides of the tank...they are too low for my knees. My knees rest against them instead of below them. I fit better on a 636 ninja better than on a 1300 busa. Seems crazy to me.

The XX has the smoothest I4 in the business!!! :plus1:

But if you're looking for the fastest/more powerfull bikes, better get one of them: Busa/ZX12R/K1200S/ZX14R. ;)
