Good info from Zimmer on the warranty option for the 1000rr.

How does insurance compare between the two? Is the busa still considered a sport touring bike for insurance purposes?

If after all this input if you are still un-decided and plan to finance the bike.
Sharpen your pencil going over the loan information.
Honda seems to have very good rates through Honda Financial - While Suzuki not as good through HSBC.

Good Luck

A Bandit 1250 would probably be my first option with some type of luggage or bags to haul rain gear, lunch, cigs, tire repair kit, etc.
thats a really good bike! used to ride a 1200s. 50 more cc and fuel injection makes it even better im sure.

it will not dissapoint and would be way better than either of the two you listed for commuting. you could totally do track days on the bandit as well.
