The Black & orange combo is the best, followed by the blue & black. White color is just average,on the Busa.

hehe..Jai hayabusa!

Why we are comparing R1 with Busa?Both are from very different league, agree R1 looks better then Busa but the beauti of this Beast lies in her ugly shape and that gives her a mean look(Back off kinda attitude).

Hi guys, this is a 'Busa', who cares what it looks like ? Would you fault Asha Bhosle because she's not a looker ?

This bike has a gem of an engine & a whole industry's developed (Hayabusa Engines are our specialty) around modding them & using them in kit-car projects (www.turbokart.com).

Give the 'busa' it's due, this bike deserves respect...

I also saw a Hayabusa recently, even in normal driving the bike was flying.

awesome ...
this is a colour combination which i am sure has its own share of niche admirers ..
i enjoyed the privilege of riding a 07 earlier this year which was more or less in the same condition (seat plastics and all) and man a busa just blows you off .. it surely got my juices flowing ...

i know there would be this never ending debate on the practicality's side of the busa but as a clever man once said..
' sometimes best things in life dont make sense"..

Thats one of the best colour schemes, especially when you see it in person. Very cool.

Well I feel, why compare the looks? When it come to bikes.......an engine with two wheels and which gets you quickest from 0 - 100 kmph is what it is about, and off course the handling.
