The ZX-14 may have more power, but the 'Busa still holds the world record for top-speed on a stock motorcycle. The 14 came out after the agreement to limit top-speed...and, of course, current 'Busas are "slower" than earlier versions for the same reason.

Nice enough bike, just not my cup o' tea.

Especially around here. A scooter could keep up with a 'Busa, what with traffic and stoplights...

A bit disappointing for Limited Edition
 
So for the extra dough you get a new color, and a plate with your name on it? Really, you couldn't throw some Ohlins on there or something? Might cost a bit more, but it would truly be different. You'd have to be a huge Busa fan to dish out the extra dough.

Ditto, throw in the usual potholes, logging trucks, Q tips in WinnieWasto's and Deer and Elk wandering around and you really don't want to be exploring the upper end of the speedo.

A good reason to visit the 'strip!
