What Is It?

It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,299cc inline four engine, producing 175bhp at 9,800rpm and maximum torque at 7,000rpm. The engine provides an abundance of power at any speed.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame and swingarm (steel subframe from 2001)
  • Dual 320mm discs up front with 3 piston calipers
  • 240mm disc at the rear with 2 piston caliper
  • Fully adjustable 43mm upside down fork
  • Adjustable rear shock
  • 6 speed gearbox with high capacity clutch

Suzuki used their World Superbike experience to develop the frame, swingarm and low drag coefficient of the bike. The curves and hump at the back work with the riders body to let the bike slip through the air with minimum turbulence, while the vertical stacked headlights provide a very narrow front end.

The end result swooped in and stole the title of fastest production bike from the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird, shortly before the gentleman's agreement between the main players to limit top speeds to 186mph in 2000.

Kawasaki's ZX-12R was also in the running for the title but the Busa won and became the fastest motorbike of the 20th century. The 3-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.

1999-2000 Busas are unrestricted and can hit 194 mph rather than the restricted 186 mph. This makes them slightly more collectable and as such they hold their value well.
