2008 Ninja ZX-14 vs Suzuki Hayabusa

The open-class sportbike heavyweights return for a rematch, with the re-designed Suzuki Hayabusa aiming to retake its crown from the re-tuned Kawasaki ZX-14. (PHOTO: Motorcycle-USA.com) » More Photos
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.

We discovered as much when we pitted the duo against each other in our 2006 Hayabusa vs. ZX-14 Comparo. In that encounter, the all-new ZX-14 got the better of the, until that point, unchallenged Busa. Fast forward to 2008 and we have new versions of each bike in our garage. But which contestant will come out on top in this latest clash of the titans?

Being that the speed limit in texas is still 70(which I question cause i've done well over that...) its up to the rider to ride it as they wish...

both looked awesome in the reviews, and more to come w mods and such in the future...

Factors in motorcycle shootouts:

1. Which company is paying the most for advertising;

2. The 5000' elevation, crappy dirt road converted 1/4 mile track with 12 elevation changes and curves the mag dredges up to run the bikes on with lamest, fattest editors on staff;

3. Amount of pages dedicated to the texture of synthetic leather on the passenger seat;

4. Who can pull the coolest wheelie while outfitted in the garb of the mag's biggest gear advertiser, said gear having the greatest color clash with the bike
