You need State Farm insurance. They don't 'peg' anything and you pay by cc's only. $325 a year for full coverage on a Busa. Can't beat it with a stick. :wink:Mr. Duke said MO would have a review out shortly, apparently Pete is going to be testing one this weekend. My local dealer has no information on when they'll have them in stock. You might want to check insurance rates first if you're financing. I was unplesantly surprised to learn they pegged it as a "sportbike."
Yes, there are reports from people from VA, PA, NJ that have bought them that I have seen. Their early ride reports are favorable. There was a big media riding/testing event this week. I assume MO was involved and even now writing a report.
Why is it that bikes just get heavier and heavier? Calling any bike over 600 lbs "sport" is ridiculous no matter how well it "carries it's weight". Even Triumph with 20 years of technology to draw on managed to managed to make the new Bonnie heavier than the old one.Still beats the Vision by some 150-200lbs!
Look I have nothing against these bikes as bikes. But the average Japanese "sport" tourer weighs more than a Superglide. 730 pounds for the ST1300. 665 for the K1200GT. 650 for the FJR.And I'm still not a fan of the Concours 14, yet. I'd sooner buy a ZX-14, put some bar risers on it and save about 200lbs.
Even if you left it as-is, from all reports the ZX-14 is already very comfortable with really good ergos.
