Could you guys give me couple of good reasons, why should i buy new ST instead of much cheaper and way more powerful Hayabusa?
I know that st is more closer to my previous bikes (xx and vfr) than busa, but i who wouldnt like more power and torgue.Without knowing how you intend to ride, you really can't compare the two. They are two very different classes of bikes, for instance I don't think I've ever seen a Busa with panniers.
I guess I'm just used to seeing Hyabusas with extended swing arms and neon kits. You would definitely get more power with with the Busa but you'll give up a little ride comfort. The type of riding you do is what will make the difference. If you want to rocket around tearing up the asphalt the Busa is well suited for that. If you've looking for an all around sporty touring bike then go with the Sprint.I know that st is more closer to my previous bikes (xx and vfr) than busa, but i who wouldnt like more power and torgue.
You can get panniers to busa also.
Amen! I will only ADD to my bike collection, never replace my Sprint unless it gets stolen or totaled. Excellent all arounder for me!!!Hi,
you could buy either bike and no doubt be happy with your purchase. I've always liked the 'busa - it certainly makes a statement.
But for what it's worth (and this is just my opinion)
Happy shopping, either way you go you're gonna be happy I reckon
- Sprint has excellent "real world" power - more than enough for most circumstances I'd say
- Sprints, and triumphs generally, make their own statement
- Sprint is good to look at (IMO!)
- Sprint motor has a great delivery, very intoxicating (again, MO)
- My Sprint is a stay-er - i.e. I ain't shopping around. I have a feeling this'll be a long term thing for me - haven't felt that way about a bike for a long time
Hey Dave, here's what I did with my puncture repair kit. I took off the windscreen and then the little black panel above the lights (under-screen trim) and put it in there. It's not like you'll be using the repair kit every day so it's worth the minute it takes to undo 6 screw to get to it.The back end of a Busa is one ugly looking mutha (IMHO) - that's enough to put me off.
The perfect bike does not exist. Whatever bike we choose has some feature we don't think is ideal but we accept the compromise.
For me the drawback with the Sprint is the lack of storage on the bike for the little bits and bobs some of us bikers like to carry around just in case. e.g. puncture repair kit, locks, extra tools, spare bulbs etc. etc.. Having said that it's engine is great, it's comfortable, handles confidently and looks good. And for that I will forgive its one or two minor inconvenient features.
