Default 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa or 2008 Kawasaki ZX-14?

Which do you like better, and why?All good answers, except for Nik. I take it he likes the old school bikes, good for him.I actually own a Kawi Ninja ZX-6R, bought it last May. For now, it will do just fine. The main reason I asked about peoples'preferences is due to future plans of opening a speed shop for sportbikes. I will be attending MMI within the next couple of years, and no matter what I choose to ride, I want to specialize in the brand that will net the most business, whether repair or custom work.Thanks for your opinions.

well both are awsome bikes, i think its just really what suits you and makes you proud to say thats my bike. both have unlimited options to go with so i would say its a toss up....but i would prefer the hayabusa....think it looks better

The Hayabusa is definately better looking and once announced king of the road .. but the Zx14 has more cc... it proved to beat the busa by a few tenths of a second in quartermile.. JUST BARELY... but I'd say the Hayabusa is still better.. because it came out before the zx14 and its performance is just right behind the zx14.. that means the next new Busa will be better stronger and faster.

How long have you been riding? If your a novice rider than I would say neither because you can't handle those types of bikes no matter how big your balls are. If your an expert rider...go with the Busa great bike, rocket fast, better value buy, no bug eye front, and should beat the Ninja (skills will determine this) with a lil effort. Also the ride feels better on the Busa and this is definitely felt around curves. More hp in the Busa but the Ninja is lighter. In exact conditions with exact riders the Busa barely beats the Ninja. Either bike is good but I'd go with the Busa. ------
