  • GPZ WTK Should i wait

    I was just wondering what other people would do in this situation.
    I will be buying a new bike in the future and it will be a hayabusa.
    should i wait for the release of the new bike which no one can tell me exactly when its in or should i buy the 2007 model, which i could get in the next two weeks. i know it is an indivdual thing but how different could they be. ie would any current hayabusa owners trade up now for the new one.
    Thanks

    198hp vs 185hp (I think) Busa owner to confirm.

    I know which I would choose, but I am an impatient asshole

      If you wait and don't like the new one, you could get a good condition old one from someone who upgrades. Keep your options open.

        I'd wait. New ones are getting radial mount brakes and new forks and all the fruit. If you've got a bike to ride around in the mean time, wait.

                    You'd lose bucketloads.

                      OK im waiting or maybe not.
                      if i buy the 07 new it is still the first bike ive owned new and is one hell of a bike
                      its not the 13hp more bike but it is approxiametly $3500 cheaper
                      hopefully its released in the next 4 weeks then the torment will be over

                        Mate, you are looking at it all wrong.
                        It's not the "extra 13hp" that you should be looking at, but the fact that it's a total redesign of a bike that's nearly 10 years old.
                        I know you are a prospective 'Busa owner, and you are probably just looking at the MOAR figures, but try and look at the bike as a whole, not just the performance figures.

                          buy an older one, less depreciation

                            Wait a few months, until I get used to the new fairing (which ATM I don't like), then buy mine when I upgrade.
