Kawabusa for sale on Ebay

I started this thread almost a year ago showing this bike I found. OLD SBN THREAD

Now it's for sale on Ebay. It's a Kawi ZRX with a Busa motor in it. Just imagine; a Busa motor in a naked bike. That sure is tempting.

I got to looking and it seems the weight of a stock ZXR and a stock Busa are both right around 540 lbs wet depending on which article you read. So there really isn't much of a noticable difference in weight, but nobody makes a naked bike with that much HP. I'm just a big fan of naked bikes and would love to throw a leg over something like this.

I guess all it takes to make a 'busa look good is to take it's heart and put it in a Kawasaki body!!

That "older" kawi? Didn't Kawasaki just stop making it like two years ago?

The stock rex motor was no slacker to begin with, excellent torque. But putting the busa in it brings it to a whole new level. I'd ride it all day long. After riding my 1200cc bandit, I definitely appreciate a big bore naked.
