No problem just busting your balls. I have ridden just about every bike made so I have an idea what I like. Even if the Busa or ZX14 aren't the quickest or fastest depending on mods, etc., they give the most smiles for the miles because of the "Big Block" feel of acceleration and relative comfort. To date the only litre bike that impresses me is the S1000RR. But not in stock form. Since I live up at mile high, it is very lacking in the low to mid acceleration but moves out once over 9k then it's just a matter of going for the ride. Now once you put some decent gears such as -1, +2 the bike wakes up nicely like most litre bikes do. A pipe, filter and tune then you have an animal. It really is nice bike and it should be since the engine is by far more advanced than the current crop of Jap machinery.

hi busa shot i know what you mean i too like the big block four cylinders,just sold the new zzr 1441 ,as it was too much money lying in the garage for the amount of time i get to ride,i have had numerous zzr 1400's and 1200s,love them the new 1441 is stunning with a much better ride and perfomance than the older models,but the gearbox is awful the clunk into first gear is so harsh the bike sounds as if the box is going to explode,this is my first busa 2010 mint with 3400 miles on it i am yet to get it out on the road (due to our weather)but already i am loving the ultra smooth gearbox  roll on the good weather !!

I remember the 14s trans shifting very smooth especially compared to the Busas..........I don't know....I only ran a new 14 for about a couple miles and it was very TQ'y feeling especially compared to the old Gens and the Busas.

Out of the three fastest bikes I ever rode, my turbo Busa, a 14 with a pipe and lots of dyno time, and a stock Beemer 1000, the the Beemer was hands down the absolute smoothest shifting bike I have ever seen, the quik shift deal worked like butter, now the bike could never run with my Busa or even the 14, but if you got into any twistys at all the Busa or 14 would have a real tough time staying even close to that BMW

Interesting.
Now I think the Busa makes a better, easier to ride STREET bike. My '07 1000 was a much better road racer. But how about a Busa engine in a 1000 frame?

I have to say that my 2011 Busa, in comparison to the previous street bikes I have owned (08' CBR1000rr, 05' Raven R1, 2003 GSXR 750, and 2000 CBR F4) all of which were highly modified. I find my Busa is WAY more comfortable to ride, along with being  a lot more powerful than my previous bikes. I think it all comes down to rider experience, with the right rider any bike can be fast.

I know this is a 1000cc v. Busa thread but for what its worth I put a beating on this guy today... Im not really impressed with the ZX14... Nice bike tho, just not for me.
