I would think insurance would be more of a show stopper then the price of the bike..
Honestly, I can't imagine a busa is any worse than a litre. Which is not significantly worse than a supersport 600.

Using your math I will make a point. Your turbo 600 is 10,000.00. A 12,000.00 new stock busa still makes a considerable amount more HP and does it on motor with 87 with no concerns of reliability. They are not equal.

I'm not disagreeing.

OK. I was never implying that anyone who wanted one couldn't get a Busa. I will say that mine has become way more expensive than any of the other 4 600's I have had put together.

How about get it in the 8.99s and then we'll go from there.....

Must walk before you run grass hoppa.

205 should be do-able though...

Get that thing on the dyno! Curiousity is killing me. Lets take it saturday, Roy may be coming to town on sat, we can all go dyno it, then drink beer afterwards....
