Well u seem to be new to the imported bike scene as well :P
You wont get a Busa for under 4 lakh.
My guess would be nothing less than 7, that too it would be a much older model.

Getting a Busa in India is highly impractical. U will hardly use all 1300cc it has to offer. 1000cc max on Indian roads.
For under 4 lakhs, maybe a old 600cc, or at the most one of the newer models and that too would be a good bargain.

Why don't u look at a 600cc Gixxer or R6???

IMO the Busa is just overrated, the name sells a lot. Not taking any credit away from the bike, but i feel a 1000cc Gixxer or R1 or a CBR 954 are better...

hmm..must be a typo with 997 but then again owning a busa isnt practical at all I had one i know...then again how long have you been riding ? And what bikes ?,now dont mention the ones youve parked from here to there....I'd say first try and settle for a 600 get used to it then gradually grow to a nice sprint st1050 or aprilia after a long climb from the gsxr's and the R's infact try a VFR -combined braking system VTEC engine pretty much gives you the kick.
@lastmanstanding:great buy for the "I look great on the powerful one series"
but honestly how many times do you take your bike out to get umm..lets say a burger?not much I guess...hmm on the other hand I use my bike to get bread too...so I guess everyday riding bike matters,but great buy nonetheless plus I had one here wasnt to happy with the heating issues.
