Everyone seems to praise this bike, but why???
it has an engine bigger than the size of some honda car engines 1.3L to be exact i believe
top speed monster...
yes 1300 cc.
in a straight line it's the fastest production bike. They run high 9's stock with a good rider. that is all that is good about them. Oh they can do like 200mph too.
otherwise they're heavy and ugly IMO. I think they're around 160 RWHP stock.
200mph, how is that legal???
how is it not legal?
When you're going that fast the last thing you're thinking about is getting pulled over, unless you're running from super-cop driving a twin-turbo Corvette.
100mph....most cars can do that...how is that legal?
Add a turbo kit to the busa.....
in all honesty, I don't think they'd try to get you.
I'm not sure their guns read that high
now way any cop is going to keep up with any decent bike
I used to cruise on my old FJ1200 at 165 (indicated) on the interstate every time I had to get somewhere.
Not once was I challenged.
Yeah, what are they gonna do? Set up a road block? ...a spike strip?
I think in Alabama it's a law that if you're going over 100 mph on a motorcycle the police can not take chase. They can't catch up, and they can't stop you by force without killing you.
no dude, they'd get you after you slowed down most likely...
i dont know
your fuckin crazy if you peg the speedo in a busa
Busa stock will only do 186 or so. They are governed, but if you buy a black box which removes the limiter they will do 196 or so actual speed. There was a Sport Rider test that pitted the ZX12 VS the Busa and they both topped out around 196 with no governer.
Supposedly the 2002 ZX12 is faster overall bike then the Busa, again according to a motorcycle rag.
depends on the year IIRC
the '99 model year was not restricted.
Unless you're running out of gas who says you have to slow down until you've gotten away.
the brick wall in front of you....
ONLY 186? Damn thats slow....
I would be interested in any statisitcs on what kind of percentage of bikes that run end up crashed.
I bet it's pretty high.
From what I seen/heard/read, the Hayabusa is bad ass.
depends on what you want to do with it. They're hard to touch in a straight line, but not really the sharpest handling tool in the box.
I'd have one, but not as an only bike.
my friends landlord in Salt Lake City races for Honda. He came home one night on his bike one night and said he almost got tagged by the cops. He said him and a friend were doing about 150 on the interstate and when they pulled off on an exit he did a wheelie for a couple blocks. when he dropped it down and slowed up to look back to see where his friend was there was 2 cops pulling up on him.As it turns out a cop saw them on the interstate and radioed ahead so a sequence of cops radio'ed to each other until they found him. They let him go and just said to slow it down and be more careful. Cops in Utah aren't allowed to chase at all. So thats how they do it.
Exactly my point
Im pretty sure that the motorcycle companies agreed to stop trying to make bikes pass the 200mph barrier. I once read an article with a Kawi 12R with nos on it and it hit 204mph or something. Because of the crazyiness of 200mph and how every motorycle company was tryiing to battle eachother in trying to hit 200mph, everyone stopped or got banned from trying.
shit...now i think i really am thru trying to make cars fast.. im def gonna get a bike!
don't worry.. my first is gonna be an old 250 0
The hayabusa is the baddest street machine around, but way too porky for the track. I decided to go with a TL1000R, and its arriving in two weeks. It wont do 200, but it will do 180+ when I'm done with it, and itll carve the corners far better than any busa.
and about cops, Ive never gotten pulled over on the bike. I always run. Ive ended up running to my job (big boat storage lot next to us, so I park it between two boats and dont touch it till its dark out) or I'll pull behind a church or somthing. The cops now park on the main road in my town, and I always fly by them when I see them. They cant see my tag cuz its hidden under the fender, so I run, and my house is entirely down hill from the main road (and takes three turns to get to, with many other possibilites) so I pull off the main road, coast home, and park it in the garage. The cops always come cruising down my street some time later (usually 1-30 minutes for them to hit my street) but they havent found me yet, and never will.
In total, ive probably run 20 times, but have only been actively pursued 5-6 times. They usually flash their lights, see that they have no chance and go back to eating doughnuts.
