the busa looks real good in white. But i think apart from this theres another colour combination of white and silver which is even better than the white with red strips.

The busa is more about character and what it does, than looks.

Awesome pics Smokin! The front of the 08 busa looks killer, but the tail looks ugh....it looks like the front of a moped.

Rightly said.
More than the white one,I like the orange/black combo. Gives it an extra mean look.

I agree. This is the first white superbike I actually could not stop ogling.

Moped? comeon its as wide as a reva. The rear lights tappering down and the triangle end cans look lovely.

To each his own. Their 'ugly' look is symbolic to the Hayabusa. however a busa is a busa, Suzuki can make it more ugly and it would still have admirers for its sheer size and brute force.

I respect your opinion, but the '08 Busa is a killer machine, able to achieve speeds in excess of 300kmph. It's an amazing piece of engineering & net net a true rider wants a reliable machine that can be pushed to it's limits without any hiccups & overall have fun doing that. That's exactly what the '08 Busa does!! Chk out the technology going into the bike at 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa - OFFICIAL WEBSITE
It's pretty amazing what has been done with the bike to give the rider the confidence to push the bike to it's limits. I had the opportunity to ride a friend's '08 Busa & there is limitless torque within all rpm ranges.
I am a die hard fan of the Busa & that's why I am bragging about it
I suggest ride it when you get a chance to & you will stop thinking about the cosmetic nature of the bike.

The Busa is pretty comfy too. A good tourer for rider and pillion, but if I had to spend my money, it would be on a Blackbird.
