first 2008 busa is here!
« on: July 19, 2007, 01:17:01 PM »
 :DFellows the first 2008 busa is in the dealership in lexington kentucky. I just talked with Velocity Racing and they were delivered a new one yesterday. They are going to let the local dealership keep it for a couple of days before they get it back and tear into it to see how the head, rods, valves, etc. look. Then there going to start pouring on the boost. :P :P Ken said the bike is drop dead beautiful. Rear end unbolts the mud flap with 4 bolts. There is also a bigger cavity under the rear end. (should be able to slam this baby.) Suzuki will not let them post any dyno figures yet but i'll bet they already know the stock numbers. If anyone wants to see the bike go to the suzuki dealership in lexington in the next couple of days. Then the bike will be turned into a prostreet monster.

So is this a special release by Suzuki to a specific dealer?  The dealers I've talked to say it won't be released for sale until Nov/Dec of 2007.  :?

I read motorcylcelist at publix to day, thanks but keep it home unless someone else was wanting to look at it. They also went from a 46mm throttle body to a 44? Should be a lot of tuning tricks for it, need to see dyno graph to tell how strong it's going to be?

What kind of first hand impressions can you share since standing next to it?

Did it look bigger, smaller, sleeker, better....in person vs the pics we have all seen?  Specifically the rear end, - does it look like it would be ok without the rubber mudgard assembly?

i think once you get that ugly duck bill mud flap off there it will clean it up alot.freakin exhaust can's are huge.bike didn't appear to be any bigger or smaller,it is using 1000 forks,calipers,etc.i love the gauges.i think once it gets out and everyone start's making bolt on stuff suzuki sales are gonna go through the roof :thumb:

I was at the Dealer show and saw the Busa ride out on stage. My first impression was that it looks lowered, and fat as hell from the front. I immediately noticed that.  :thumb:

 Afer sitting on it, and looking at it close up, I could tell it doesn't have much in common with the previous model. I really like that Suzuki doesn't have any external fasteners showing. Also I love the dash  :thumb: :thumb: I can honestly say that I think that Suzuki did a excellent job, and all I would change is to put the gold rims on the black model.  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

  Believe you me, that I looked at everything bud, I was holding back my opinion til I saw it up close. Its so damn nice and so thought out, that I couldn't find fault.

 Until you see the tail in real life, hold your opinion. I think that a clear lense will make it look better yet.
 
When your sitting on it, it feels as though the tank is shorter and wider, and the fairing is definatly wider. The seat is better too, the stocker feels pretty good.
