I am curious I really like the red limited busa but I am a new rider and have road a 600f2 and a gsxr750 and I like the 750 better but I am curious how big the power difference is and how bad would it be for a first bike? :headbang

The accelleration of a Busa is unexpected. I love it but I have 30 + years of riding experience under my belt. For a new rider, I would buy a smaller bike. The busa is really in a different class than the bikes you have mentioned. It comes out the crate with 150 plus horses and 100 + lbs of torque, not for the novice rider...I would start smaller.

But if you do not listen and get one anyway, the throttle response is like nothing you have experienced on either bike mentioned. Be extremely careful or Darwin's theory will take it's course.

you should search for other threads about starting small. look in the new rider forums, i think there is a sticky about it. and i hope you are humble enough not to try and argue about this, because this board doesn't have much sympathy about newbs thinking of starting on a 750, or unthinkably a 1300cc busa.

you want my opinion... buy a used small bike and ride the hell out of it for at least a year. it will be a year of total uncoolness, but it will be a year that you are alive. i started on a 1982 yamaha maxim. i might not have been the coolest dude, but now i can ride my R6 with some confidence. trust me, START SMALL

I understand I am going to start smallno matter what I just wanted to know peoples opinions on the bike cause they are awesome bikes they are just heavy and have alot more power. Thanks for the feed back and the opinions. I have road dirt since I was young but I never raced or anything it wasmore for fun. :headbang

Here is my opinion...

A new motorcycle rider needs a Hayabusa about as much as a 16 year old needs a Viper as a first car. It just isn't appropriate.

If you'd buy a busa at 20 what do you have the rest of your life to build up to...

"If you'd buy a busa at 20 what do you have the rest of your life to build up to..." My dad finally bought his busa after 35 years of riding experience and no accidents. Hes 52 and won't get off it ! =]

The busa will insure that you work out at the gym more! The damn bike tries to rip your shoulders out of the sockets when you pull the tr*****. Stick with the 600 for your 1st bike.

This is very true.
Busas are suprisingly well mannered but it takes stamina and streegnth to ride them in the twisties...it takes stregnth just to hold on!!!!

I got my Busa 2 years ago, still makes me smile when I open it up. With 40 years of riding, it is one of the bikes that I have to respect. I would be getting something like and SV650 or 1000 instead of a Busa for a starter bike.

The insurance would be outrageous for you at that age if you could even get it.
