    For me, it's the Busa, mostly because I've spent more time on them. They're both big, fast, steady road burners, but the ZX-14 seems to me to be more stretched out, not as nice for a little guy like me.

      Do you think the KTM's are as reliable or maintenance free as any of the Japanese bikes would be? Have a friend who is all hot for one of their big adventure bikes. The lack of dealers, and unknown reliability scare me away from them, especially for an adventure bike where you might be hours away from any kind of dealer, let alone KTM.

      Sorry to johnnie for not staying on topic.

        Forum member KLM (think that was his handle) should chime in. Probably a biased opinion but I think he has had a Busa for a long time and could probably give you all the skinny on long term ownership and pro's and cons of the model.

              Not a problem Always value you input and advice. staying Japanese for price and number of dealers. Although the latter is dwindling
