Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 vs Suzuki Hayabusa - Motorcycle Review
Ladies and gentlemen, may we have your attention ringside please.
MotorcycleUSA.com is proud to present, for your adrenaline-pulsing
entertainment, a comparo of felonious extraordinariousness! A merciless
exhibition of titanic magnificence! A heavyweight bout of such gravity,
such weight, it can only be described as the greatest two-wheeled
extravaganza of all time! Two masters of the dojo from the land of Tojo...
The biggest show outta Tokyo! A bitter duel between monster mounts mightier
than the majestic massiveness of the Pacific Ocean they cross - the 2008
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 and the Suzuki GSX-R1300 Hayabusa!
Okay, so our Don King impersonation is third-rate, at best, but the ZX-14
and Hayabusa are the epitome of two-wheeled heavyweight brawlers. Sure,
pound for pound, the 1000cc Superbikes may be the ultimate in production
two-wheeled performance, but these two are the bad boys, the big cheese,
the meanest monkeys in the sportbike jungle.
Watch the video and then read the full comparison test:
Full Busa Session
This is the full session leading up to the crash. I'm pretty sure the rider
I was taking it easy and thought I was all alone. But when the Busa passed
me on my warmup lap...HELL NO!!! My GSXR750 can't accelerate like a Busa,
but I can beat him on the brakes all day long. :)
Turbo Busa 200 MPH Flyby Suzuki Hayabusa Passes
http://www.FullTiltLife.com and Kings of the Street share a clip showing a
500HP Stage 3 Velocity turbo Hayabusa
doing solo passes at GPS speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. It is amazing
feeling the bike tear past and listening to the shriek of the motor as it
eats up the pavement. The air simply rips apart sounding like a giant strip
of Velcro being torn asunder. Had this bike been geared up for the
occasion, it could have easily hit speeds OVER 250mph. As it was, it ran
out of gear at about 205mph. Never seen anything get to that speed as
quickly, however even with the ferocious wheelspin.
