    Two different machines...the busa just takes a little while to get used to, a new seat design wouldn't look bad.

    there is no comparison to the RSV Mille unless it's from another Italian maker. MV Agusta or Benelli may not be the fastest, but they do work the sex appeal.

    there is nothing sexy about a Busa.

    I don’t think that motorcycle designers should make headlight assemblies that look like this >

    I love it, it's form that follows function.

    I think that the haybusas are ugly. The thing is, they weren't designed to look pretty but to be as aerodynamic as possible. Function>Looks. I'd never buy one tho.

    The Hayabusa's form is ugly but it's shaped that way in order to reduce drag. I believe the Busa is one of the slipperiest bikes on the road.

    As for the Mille, it's a beauty of a bike. I love mine:

    i can see having a hayabusa for a drag bike, but for a street rider...no. I'm not trying to bust on people that do won them, because I'm not going to judge anyone over anything. I was just wondering who else though they look kinda :barf:

    I never really liked the Suzuki front ends...even the Gixxers

    I like how they look from the side, though...the Busa's and the last gen of the Tiller's

    And yes, they do look more like sport tourers
