More importantly, who in their right mind would put fake nitrous on a Busa?

Also, they could have run it over with a bus and it would still be ugly.  Suzuki certainly had made some ugly bikes over the years, and the Busa is up near the top.

Wow, when I was reading this post I though you guys were being over critical...but after seeing the ad...wow it really is a bad looking busa.  What the heck did he do to it?

I got to the part about fake nitro and stopped reading.

Why do people say "too much to list" and "thousands invested"?  It's the same MSRP vs. wholesale price trick.  What a deal!  MSRP = $1million, but I'll sell it to you for $20!

Maybe was going for nitrous and ran out of money or something like Twisted said.  Definitely more to that story.

So glad i wasnt the only one. But even if it was a drag, does he really expect to get that much out of the bike with a stock engine back in it?

I agree.  That's where his $30 grand figure came from.  He spent $10 grand or so on the bike, another $20 grand racing it, and now he wants you to buy what amounts to the fugliest bobber in town for the same price you can get a good stock Busa with seating for two.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if it had a salvage title to boot.  What a toad.

30g busa, dont forget that he had to run racing gas in his drag bike, so @ 9.99 a gal and he ran 50 gal in it - never mind he had a big spill in his pit where he dumped 25 gal on the floor ... and it caught fire and burnt the pit down and the bike had to be re built, and that itself cost 15g ... yea so there.

I don't understand the 'busa scene. They're ugly bikes that people do stupid stuff to. I mean usually I can appreciate mods I dislike from a technical or mechanical perspective, but a fake nitros kit? Really?


You don't turn them.

I've seen plenty of people get their knee down with busas. I've seen plenty of people scrape pegs on sport touring bikes and spark floorboards on cruisers. When you don't have something resembling a car tire as a rear wheel on an extended swing arm it's more about the rider than the ride. To me, if you're not dragging your bike there's virtually no point to lowering it and extending the swing arm...

...That being said, the 'busa scene is one I'll stay out of. Almost every single busa I've ever seen locally has been the motorcycle equivalent of some horrible love child between the ricer scene (fake performance parts on crap cars) and the hip-hop scene. Chromed out rims, candy paint jobs, lowered, fake performance parts, massive rear wheels, extended swing arms, and the list goes on. It's embarrassing really. Almost as embarrassing as that biker riding a sport bike with a skid lid. In the bike world the busa seems to unfortunately have become the glue between the obnoxious harley scene, the sport bike scene, and the dub-2's with spinners scene. Every time someone mentions one within most sport bike groups they get laughed at. I feel bad for the very few busa owners who truly do push their bike to it's limits, get their knee down, and show up the guys on 1000RRs that are afraid to lean over in turns.

In it's class I have high hopes for the ZX-14. Hopefully the guys who destroyed the beauty of the busa won't destroy the ZX-14.


However, regardless I'll stick with the 600RR/1000RR scene, thanks.

SMIDSY, what SMIDSY. If some retard turns in front of you just blow them away and scoot around the wreckage.

And the pipes facing sidewards, rather than out the back, puts to rest the "loud pipes save lives" debate. These pipes will wake the dead, the comatose, and the mum texting her friend "my hair's a mess and the baby's crying and did you hear what happened last night to ..."

Personally, I find that much better looking than say, those things covered with fur or guns up above.  Those are just tacky, unoriginal BS.  This was at least completely built by hand.  It gets points for that.

Though I do question that actual driveability of this deathtrap looking thing, so it does lose a few points on that end.  :)

More importantly, who in their right mind would put fake nitrous on a Busa?

Also, they could have run it over with a bus and it would still be ugly.  Suzuki certainly had made some ugly bikes over the years, and the Busa is up near the top.
busa was made to go fast in one direction only a straight line. the 1000 however , fast, left, right, and centre

I have to admit, I'm really digging the wood-grained paint job - I think it's a really fabulous piece of work. The down side is that it just plain looks stupid as shaZam! on that busa... and probably would look stupid on just about anything... but it really is top-notch work!  The paint would probably look cool on a vintage airplane...

And even if it was ridable your leg would get pulled into the front sprocket within 5 miles.

Not much common sense on this build... Is that exhaust really blowing straight onto the riders right knee?... Is the battery really mounted in front of the rear tire with no protection from road elements slung from the tire? ... No suspension makes for a rough ride... And I like the two bolts/nuts right in front of the seat so when you hit a bump on decel you can rip your sack on em...

I don't mind looks so much, unfortunately much was overlooked, maybe rushed, maybe incomplete?  :dunno_black:

I really don't think that's ugly. Just huge! I mean, I don't really want to ride it every day but if I had to make a cross country trip on interstate highways at 70+ mph with a pillion, count me in.

Maybe it's because I'm recently a grandpa. Starting to get the appeal of such things. Me & Mrs.72 could make a tour of Appalachian bed & breakfasts on something like that.

Post by: Bluesmudge on December 17, 2019, 09:30:52 AM
I remember when Honda released that DN-01 bike. It was their attempt at an automatic every-man's bike before inventing their dual clutch transmission solution. It runs a more traditional CVT.

Cool bike really. Just slow and big and not enough storage capacity for its intended usage (commuter/light touring bike). The Honda CTX700 and NC750 fill that role now and do it better.
Title: Re: Is it just me?... aka Ugly Bike thread
Post by: mr72 on December 17, 2019, 09:53:10 AM
after looking it up, I realize that it looks bigger in the picture than it is. I kind of expected a Gold Wing type bike, 800lb and 1200cc. So while I still don't think it's really ugly, I also take back my statement that it appeals to me. What I thought it was, I can understand the appeal. And that's probably a Gold Wing.
Title: Re: Is it just me?... aka Ugly Bike thread
Post by: Bluesmudge on December 17, 2019, 12:14:07 PM
I actually like the look. But I also like the Honda CTX700 and CTX1300 and even the NM4 which have similar design cues. Many people think those bikes are ugly. Honda has a habit of trying to make car-like motorcycles every so often. Thinking all the way back to the Pacific Coast 800 in the 90's and the Hondamatic bikes of the 70's and 80's. As if more people would ride motorcycles if they were just more boring. That concept appeals to me but not the typical motorcycle consumer.
Full disclosure, my wife rides a CTX700N. I think its a cool bike and the DCT is an engineering marvel.

Oh yuck. Some fool back in in 2006/07 started to "convert" a katana 600 into a cruiser, and was selling it 1/2 way don't on craigslist near Nashville TN. It looked retarded, with ape hangers and forward pegs.
This almost looks like he finished the job with a - Looks like a FZR 600 or what is it ?
Cool.

Looks more and more like a CBR 600 f3 now that I look at it closer.
That frame hanger in front is a clue, the dip stick at the bottom of clutch cover is classic honda.
Sorry I'm thinking its not a FZR600 now, cbr 600 variant. Pre F4I version, those were aluminum frame.

Cool.

Doesn't look like its CBR or FZR 600's - I give up.
It could be a total mutt - frame from a Katana 1100 motor out of a CBR 1100 F or some mish mosh like that.

Cool.
