Hey guys,

No, this is not like my previous ZX10R post where all I did was ask a question. I saw this in a Japanese magazine, they had the 08 previews for the Hayabusa and the CBR1000. The CBR 1000 looks pretty nice (now #2 in rank for me behind the ZX10R), and is due to have a lot of internal changes as well as external. The pipe is a single stub out the right much like the GSXR 600/ 750. I'm still trying to find a pict online.

Here is a pict of the '08 Hayabusa. Pretty much the same styling, with the big difference being a change from 1299cc to 1340cc. Pipes are circa 2007 GSXR1000, with drive mode selector.


Link to Japanese (some English too) site is here.

The forum I pilfered this info from is here.

I've never liked the looks of the busa - from looking at these pics it's only getting uglier.

On the good side, at least Suzuki is trying something different. Ugly for sure, but different. I'm sure some people will like the looks... just not me.

Maybe it would look better streched out with a big tire in the back??? They are big as hell and still only sport a 190 rear if I am not mistaken. Who knows, maybe it will grow on people when they start hitting the streets.

Yikes! That thing looks worse than all the other ugly 'busa's!

But I guess when its going by at 150mph, nobody would notice? :rolleyes
