hayabusa question

Does a busa have a different seating angle than say a cbr or gsxr750? I have never been on a busa but it looks like you would not be "laying down" quite as much.

its really a sport touring bike beleive it or not. once you get over 1100 and over there all prety much sport touring. busa has higher clip-ons than gsxr750 and busa is much more realaxed.

Its suppose to be a pretty comfortable ride and with some minor modifications you should have a bike you can do 500 mile days on. Its a bit of a pig though. Goes real fast( read too freaking fast) in a straight line but doesn't handle like a true sportbike.

Whens the last time You rode a Busa (Like never)? The busa on the street (read in the mountains) will be right in the hunt with a competent rider.

I got a friend that rides a busa that made it his mission to disprove that statement.


I think he's doing pretty good... And to think before the wreck he used to try and catch me...

I agree with all of ya, you can corner a busa pretty well, plenty for street riding, but not near as well as a current RR.
