Is it okay if I tell you that this is purely an observational account? That I haven’t actually ridden these motorcycles (okay, I have ridden the ’Busa a fair bit before) for this story and that what’s to follow is simply what I have absorbed from the presence of these iconic motorcycles? In fact, the two bikes you see here have nothing in common. Except, of course, for being the most iconic modern day motorcycles of our times. Spectator sport of the finest sort, this.

Yes, the 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R is the fastest production motorcycle in the world and there are motorcycles that are way more beautiful than the two machines you see here, but who said this was a war of specification sheets? To let you in on a fact, the Suzuki GSX-1300R Hayabusa is one of my more favourite motorcycles. The fascination for the ’Busa began, obviously, from reading reviews in international magazines. Most, no, everyone was ticked off by the looks – references to potatoes, walruses (walrii?) and ugly has-been celebrities were plenty – but none could come up with a denial to its status of being a true 200 mph (320 kph) production motorcycle.

The author has not talked about the bikes at all in this article and is talking all unrelated things. Why waste the magazines's and the readers time
