Superb allrounder

published

Owner for last 3 years, wife often pillioned on back and ideal for 2 up touring. Most other bikes seem rather gutless by comparison(ZX 1400 excluded)
Capable of very good economy and bike continually attracts attention despite being 6 years old. Very robust drivetrain and gearbox is slick in operation. Capable of 5L per 100km fuel consumption. Engines are extremely robust design. Fantastic bike!
Grunt and accessible torque delivery
Sportster position was wearing on all day rides.

Best motorbike I had in my life

published

I bought my first motorbike 16 years old and I had several one since then. My last one before the "Busa" was a Honda CBR 600RR. When I went look my Hayabusa, I got scared by its size, weight and power. However, just after a couple squares driving it, I felt in love. It is really stable, even at considerable high speeds. I have my Busa almost for 2 years now. The maintenance is very low. The bike is extremely reliable. Fuel Economy is not bad, 15 km/l. I do recommend it.
Stable, Reliable, Economic.
Australian speed limits are too low for the "Busa"

The latest version of the Hayabusa is an absolute beast whilst still retaining the finesse and agility of a pure racing machine. Finish and overall performance exceeds its competitors. This motorcycle is a gift from above to the discerning rider who knows and expects absolute perfection. There is no imperfections.

The Best Bike I've ever Owned (twice)

published

Brutal power, ridiculous speed, looks great in grey, blue or white and when I got rid of my first one I had to get another. I had about fifteen bikes and I'm 50 years old so I know what I'm doing. Treat yourself!


Excellent

published

The bike is totally awesome. The power of the beast is breath taking and the speed 300+ is exhilarating and it doesn't take long to get there. The handling, its stability and the ease at which you can throw it around is bloody amazing for such a big bike. I own one and would swap it for anything else.
The power, the handling and the fuel economy.
Chews through back tyres like a bunch of kids in a lolly jar, a dead set radar finder and hard to hang onto on full throttle, you need velcro on your pants and on the bike seat!

Questions & Answers

Brian Awbery.asked

I have just bought a Hayabusa 2005 with 400 miles on the clock I bought it out of a collection there isn’t a mark on it I have read a lot of reviews all good but is there a downside with the bike .

Yes, trying to keep your licence & not get caught speeding. Apart from that I often read about the fuel filter clogging up from dirty fuel causing loss of power. Can be a few hundred to repair. Also 6th gear on the 2nd gen can be pain in the neck with it not slotting into gear properly. Not sure if 1st gen has same gear issue.

Does its exhaust sounds loudly? Like yamaha yzf r1

The standard exhaust is relatively quiet. Most Hayabusa's have aftermarket Yoshimura etc.. exhausts which can be very loud, much deeper noise than YZFR1, generally.
