Btw, I'd still like to see Suzuki shave some weight off the tubster.
I'd like to see a larger engine, and lighter chassis, with better wheels etc.. I mentioned to I think his name was Rick Suzuki, at a dealer show, that I thought they should have on their web site, the ability to upgrade a motorcycle. What I mean is that lets say they offer a Hayabusa for example, and have choices of wheels, suspension components, and color scheme combinations, to customize the bike from the factory. Then a deposit is given, and the bike is delivered to the dealership where you would pay the rest and pick it up. He agreed that was a good idea, but it hasn't happened. Too complicated? What do you think?
Factory upgrades are a great idea. For things like brakes, suspension, alarm and immobiliser and as you say wheels, exhaust etc?
With the EU going ape shit about bike modifications and trying desperately to ban them, Suzuki could head that off by providing factory
approved parts for customising your own bike.
Another idea would be for Suzuki to ask the many owners and fans of the Busa what they would like to see on the new model.
But the marketing guys always seem a bit light on original ideas?
