Poll: Yellow Hayabusa, yuk or yeah?

Suzuki have released photos of this rather bright colourscheme for the new Hayabusa out next year, which will be on display at their stand at Motorcycle Live. They've hinted that if they get enough positive feedback, they'll release the colour in the UK alongside the four colour schemes already announced. Let us know what you think - is the yellow yuk or...

It's already a big ugly bike. The only thing that could have helped it's look is invisible paint. Making it yellow just makes the ugliness stand out more.

Yellow Suzuki

They should all be yellow! that is suzuki (well one of them) signature colour

Suzuki = yellow

Honda  = Red

Yamaha = White (yellow if your a Nth American)

Kawasaki = Green

As far as small bikes being quicker, well of course they are if the twisties are tight enough. My KTM 640 makes my friends Busa look stupid through my local valley, now if we both go to Eastern Creek He rides in the fast group and I ride in the slow group and there are another 2 groups in between.

As far as a sportsbike  eating him up.....well that just does not happen, he makes even a Paginale rider work for it. So before you judge the poor old overweight Busa, take one for a long ride and you may be surprised how much Fun  you have - Yes I said Fun as that is what most of us ride bikes for is that not correct?

Oh yes he is a racer and does race a sportsbike but he doesn't have one for the road, just like I don't ride a registered MXer on the road.

Hosbusa.... Agreed  "A lot of people talk shit about Hyper Sports Bikes" I have owned TWO  08 model Busa's. One in 2007 when they first arrived in the UK  and my present 2010 Bike, I have managed to add @80000 Miles in Total in all weather and admit to having a soft spot for this machine, With a few Minor mods My Present Bike makes 187 RWBHP as certified by Crescent Suzuki. As a bonus,  The Carbon Yoshi's remove @25lbs of Emission added weight which makes it less likely to "launch the front wheel" when "Making good progress" and a little bit of rear shock adjustment helps the bike handle in a more sporting way. Prior to the Busa I had one of the first ZZR1400s which was sold with @17000 miles on the clock. Again a very quick Bike that was way more comfy to ride than my Honda Blackbird 05 model which I managed to put @32000 Miles on. Each Bike has done exactly what I wanted and each Bike has Plus and Minus points I have also ridden the K1300s although never owned one, Which was very comfy but lacked the Ferocity of the Busa, as for "IT" being only "Slightly Slower than the new  ZZR1400" Yet it is @40 RWBHP Down on power and @25RWBHP down on the Standard Busa. The weight of these three bikes is within a few lbs The Weight of the Rider would have more of an effect on Handling TBH. I have also owned, Ridden and "had fun with many "SportsBikes" and have yet to be convinced that a "SportsBike" is the better Road Bike. Tried the VFR1200 which was not the bike  that many Blackbird owners were hoping for. As for Yellow? nah it looks Crap like all Yellow Bikes IMHO.

The sports bikes are all over you in the twisties, but they can't get past the shear girth of the big Busa.

Then exiting the bends and along the straights to the next set of bends they are fumbling around in the gearboxes to find an answer that aint there. lol !  Busa's are a lot of fun. As I said, I've had 5 of them and thats because I really clicked with the model. Love em !!!

You've got to muscle and hussle them and then they really fly! Try keeping it above 5000 rpm by using the gearbox and then you are into some strange new territory.

The guy on the Avon tyre stand at the bike show one year asked me what mileage I get out of a rear tyre, I said 1500 miles which is about normal. The Avon rep flipped ! Suggested I was a  hooligan ! Shock horror ! lol He said I should get well over 7500 miles out of a rear tyre. I said yeah if I pushed the Busa everywhere are walked off.......

@ snev

Since you hate yellow bikes, I thought you would enjoy a picture of my Honda CBR600F4i.  The ~160 pounds less weight than a Hayabusa makes a big difference by the last session of a track day, particularly through chicanes and such.
