Bought the Busa new in 2004. The missus chose it after complaining about the comfort on the ZX6. Recently toured NZ on a VFR800 and missed the Busa so much, the Honda didn't compare. Performance is unbelievable, 120 feels like 40, turn in is slow, brakes are absolutely abysmal unfortunately, she eats tyres. Only additions are double bubble (essential) and rear hugger otherwise I keep looking at cans but can't see the benefit. Would maybe consider new ZZR1400 but it would have to be good to match the Busa. Top bike surpassed all my expectations. Strengths: Performance, Comfort, Looks. Weaknesses: Brakes, Brakes, Brakes.
