Did you get a chance to listen to those pipes?
Yes, I rode it. Its the second such blade with the same exhaust that I rode. Not loud enough.

The bike seems to be backdated a year. When I saw it I knew its a '94 but the RC book says '93. Before '94 it had 2 round headlights.

No, the bike is in mira road now. I used to see this bike in Bandra in the 90's just after it was imported.

ps: Strange, but the Suzuki India site does not mention the power/torque of the Busa in the Engine specs section !

Not just Suzuki India, even the UK or any other official Suzuki Two-wheeler site doesn't mention the figures.

Why? Only Suzuki San can answer this.

Today a friend of mine happened to drop by my office and guess what, he brought in his new acquisition. Man, I love this thing. Looks mean in black. I'm frantically trying to suppress my superbike urge and is surrounded by such temptation ! Huh !

Yes, it is in the first floor and my office happens to be in the fifth. Yeah man, and his mates were sort of drool drool over it!

@nash - How on earth you keep record of these minute details when you are not even a resident of this city ??

Nope. Neither the rider, nor the pillion were wearing any form of riding/safety gear. In fact, even the guy riding the Honda Valkyrie wasn't wearing any sort of gear. It's rather unfortunate that money doesn't buy you common sense. What's even more unfortunate is that some of them don't even learn the hard way!

Scorcher, ive sent you a PM regarding that R1. Please check!

Straight6, the reason i mentioned the fairing has been changed is because it was posted up as a 03 model and i was pretty sure this design front came between 94-97 and some slight changes were made in 98. We had a 97 model and i used to wondered if the 98 front fairing could be swapped in!

Thanks dude,but what i wanted to know is whats that sticker doing on that R1. It looks kinda cheap. Would have looked better without it, just my opinion.

@scorcher- Why did he come to your office bro?

BTW ,the R1 owner aint a rossi fan. The stickerz were already put up by the previous owner. The bike's got very bad tyres with no signs of athreading. I hope owner got new shoes for it.
