snev, I am not going to bench race with you. you obviously love your 'Busa, as do so many. And you are entitled to it. 'Busa is a legend and it has been around for about 13 years and it used to be the king. But the Gen 2 'Busa has been quite disappointing and in many ways Suzuki handed over the title to Kawasaki on a silver platter.
You have to give it to Kawasaki to keep pushing the envelope and for Suzuki to keep resting on their former glory days. ZX10 was as cutting edge as you can get and 2012 Gixxer 1K is like a time capsule from 2005.
So again, no matter what I say, you're going to continue to believe that your 'Busa is the best bike ever made in the history of humanity, but I have ridden it and it's a dinosaur compare to what the others are putting out: It has outdated brakes, crappy & low end suspension and a pig going around corners. But I am sure you wouldn't trade it for anything. However, I am used to big and clunky bikes, as in addition to my K1300S, until a week or so ago, I owned a 1999 K1200RS from new with 80,000 miles (130,000 KM) that I loved so dearly. But I had to part with it, so I sold it to a good chap.
The K1300S was picked at the king hypersport by Sport Rider when it came out and frankly it's a flawless bike. There were some initial issues with bad switch gears which were swapped under warranty, otherwise, it's been an incredible bike. And it corners like a bike about 80 lbs lighter.
