Ok, so I cried wolf, sorry. :D

but I got your attention. I want to get back into the big liter sportbikes and am dying to find out any new info on the new lineup .

**JeffW, did any of the Suzuki reps say anything about future sportbikes, i.e. Hayabusa?????


I hate the look of the ZX-14, it reminds me of the Hurricane in the 80's ::) and don't want a 1000 cc bike that feels like a 600.


somebody's got to have some info for me, thanks

I was talking w/ my dealer and they said there is no change due to overstocking of 2006 models and Zx-14 is not selling so good in the midwest so they aren't willing to change the busa yet. at least thats the fairytale I got from him :dontknow:

If the price was right I could be talked into one, but I'm big on getting the newest body style. gotta keep up with the Jones's......

Maybe the zx-14's will get a redesign next year, my only hope now is that Honda will Join in on the battle and come out with a new Blackbird! :joke:

I had an '03 Blackbird and besides being a little top heavy, I loved it. I am waiting to see a new Blackbird come out.

The 2007 Busa was ready to come out the door..... until the ZX-14 uppped the bar. 2008 is the next release of the Busa...... They have stated that the top speed record will come back to Suzuki.

I see:

New Frame
14xx cc motor
Upgraded ECU, faster
Twin injectors (tower) ???????
12 hole injectors like the 07 1`k gets this year.
Redesign of the body.

are the bastiges gonna give us the B-King? thats what I want, a busa powered upright nekkid sporty bike. no more back breakers for me. I kinda hoped Kawasaki would have done up a ZRX 1400 since they dropped the ZRX 12 from the USA for 06'. They always decide what is right for us, suckers. the new Bandit looks pretty good too IMO.

Finally someone who doesn't love the 14's fugly looks. Thought I was the only one. I have always loved the Kawi's, but their styling in the last 5 years or so has been way behind the other top 3. I know aerodynamics force weird designs, but I wouldn't ride that thing by virtue of the fugly factor alone. Go for the Busa, although a big change is in the works soon and you may end up with last years design in a blink.

that's what happened to me in 2005 when I bought my zx-12. 6 months go by and out comes the 14!! good thing it's ugly...I was kind of pissed
