As for the B king beating a Busa...what do you think the King is?? After the mods done to my bike I am only down about 10bhp, the biggest difference is the aerodynamics. I never said it was faster topped out but the torque delivery of the King is better and hole shot acceleration is better as a result. The only difference in the power-plant is the airbox and the exhaust..the engine is exactly the same gen 2 1340cc.
YES, you are 100% correct when you say the rider makes the difference! It doesn't matter what you have if you don't know how to ride it.
There is no ego here, you would most likely give me a spanking if you are a riding a Busa and we went down the 1/4 mile. I will fully admit I am not a racer but you better not mess up cause I will be right there!!
It is funny how people respond to comments on the forums..I am not bashing the Hayabusa at all, I love that bike. I just love my King more.
