Did I read that right? They didn't pick the 12 because of fuel
mileage? WTF!

It would seem that by the criteria they used - if they'd put a 1600cc goldwing in the lineup, it would have won hands down. I'm glad the ZX came in last!

THX for the article. It just reinforce's my thought's that Suziki pay's too much for AD space in magazine's.

And how can three guy's that did'nt even set the bike up, Suspenison, quailfi to tell me which bike is best.

Kind of a joke thier honesty. Too much bike for em and no ideal what to do with it. Tweek and tune and you shall be rewarded Grasshopper.

Easy,
There is an article in this month's Performance Bike where they took a tuned 'busa and a tuned 12 to france to race around the outer circle of Paris. 12 had the obligatory Akro and PC111. 'Busa had similar spec kit fitted.
They chased 186 MPH trains and each other, all the way up to an indicated 220MPH. 'busa got a bit of a beating!!!! There is no substitute for brute horsepower!!! Nuff said!!!

Regards
Ted

its not a bad article and they have a lot praise for the 12's “superior top speed, horse power and handling” etc. but in the end they give it to the busa because of its "gutsy motor and superb stability". Bollox!! their another load of prats on the Suzuki pay-roll!!

i'll try and scan the article when i eventually get some windows xp drivers that is.

Minger12,
As you so eloquently said, I too thought it was a bit biased towards the 'busa. The 'busa was outsped, outhandled, out accelerated and out horse powered!! all that from a smaller engine to boot! Not to mention the 'busa's agricultural gearbox! You work it out! I can't!

you will find that most UK mags will lean towards the busa simply because it is a GIZZER most of the testers were weaned on the gsxr750 & 1100's. Even the lads from fast bikes picked the busa for the hooligan image of the gsxr.Sorry for the spelling mistake,it should read
"most of the testicles"
take care all
