The drag Busa certainly has changed quite a few hands in a short while. Pity though, that none of them have been able to achieve what that bike is really capable of (?) I remember seeing it in Bangalore after it was sold to the guy in Bombay. So I guess its back in Bangalore?

Speedy, there are two such bikes, i.e. blue and balck thunderace.
One of them is the one posted by Rt, and another was a bombay bike (MH 01), this one went to Ahmedabad in the first half of 2005.
I am pretty certian about this as i rode the one from Bombay through the Speedrun 2005 weekend, just when the other one from down south was here too for the weekend.

manson i dont doubt your knowledge at all. i remember seeing the blue and black thunderace from when i was looking to buy my first bike and that is why i mentioned i think it is the same.i was sold on the colour schemeas it is my favourite colours but the price did not suit me. i have limited knowledge of bikes and the little that i know is thanks to my biker friends in bombay. i am basically a car person.

monson you dont need to be sorry at all. you were not rude in any of your posts my friend.
i had seen a variety of bikes at that point right from the 80's upto 99, from the 400's upto the 1200's. i was shown the bike by johnny at his place. but the bike that i liked even though it was in bad shape was the cb900f that i bought and there was a92/93 kawasaki zzr1200 if i remember the model right. big black and really nce, but there was some work required on the bike and also it was not in my budget.

Yes there is a bike known as the gsx 1400 and there is a brand new one for sale down south, blue and white. I have seen the pictures as we were supposed to pick that one up. Dont know whether its still there.

Speedy, the gixxer u've seen must be a 1100 cause there was no 1000 then. Try to check on it again if possible.

No Speedy. The GSX1400 uses an old school oil cooled bandit 1200cc engine bored out by another 200 or so cc. Its a pure muscle bike. These (naked/muscle bikes) are quite the rage in the UK at the moment.

The B King uses the 2008 Busa's engine with a reworked fuel map to give more low down torque.
