@topend_hooligan
Why so late in posting the pics on team-bhp
U had posted the pics long bak on xbhp
Neways , awesome bike, but I see a very small dent on the Silencer.

One request, can u also post pics of the ZX-12r that the owner of the above bike had ?

cost has to be in the range of 10-12 lacs....and between comparing the hayabusa and the r1 there is no comparison..since the hayabusa is a sports tourer(1300cc) whereas the r1(quater litre) is in the supersports category.both offer the thrill of speed in different ways..

and if it was any busa ....
i gues every1 would agree with me wen i say dom modded busa rocks....

Guys thats the sad part.....noh not that a car shows 160kmph as the max speed and the busa 280kmph but that the 2005 busa shows just 280kmph.....yes this is sad....finally the engineers at Suzuki have done what most Busa owners/to be owners had feared.....limited the top speed to 280kmph. If you guys happen to check out an older model like say the 2002....the speedo there reads a max attainable speed of 340kmph. Check this out --->>

Thumbs down

lovely bike. & though im not a bike freek, i hate when the engineers reduce the top speed down on the speedometer of their bikes. i mean wtf? u can even die at 120 if u fail to control properly. so whats the point in gettin a 340 max to a 280?
