It looks like an 05 and before with some 05/06 Gixxer 1000 parts glued to it. Especially the tail section, old school aero dynamic solo seat hump with angular hips from the Gix1k. Front end isn't bad though.

Ben, where'd you hear that? I don't know why they'd disc. the Busa, it sells great and has a huge following to boot.

I dunno...someone definitely posted a few months ago a link which talked about the Busa being discontinued citing waning sales figures. It was a bit of a surprise to me too!

Apparently it was just so much internet misinformation.

I was told by a Suzuki rep that the '06 busa will be unchanged as limited resources have them focused on expansion of the Boulevard lineup first.

I was also told that there IS a new 'busa in the making. Rumors of 1500cc's and a 100 pound drop in weight are rampant, but as yet unconfirmed.

I think the Busa is one of the ugliest bikes on the road. I don't care how fast they are, lol.

So the US drop due to the busa's being eclipsed in sales by the gsxr1k, is nothing more than a rumor? Darn, I was hoping to see fewer of those whales.;)
