2006 Hayabusa


The 2-stroke dirt-bikes are/were something really special...Especially from 250cc's & upwards...And the 500cc capacities are simply outright dangerous, more-so than even a Hayabusa !

There maybe some European brands still producing them, like Gagiva & such, but I'm not sure.

I'd highly recommend a Hayabusa for anyone that wants to get around on a bike during the summer-months. Running costs are not over-the-top.

And now with the release of the 3rd Generation bike, S/H prices for low-mileage 1st & 2nd Generation examples will be super-low, & a better-than-ever buy.

IMO, the 1st Generation bikes are the better choice, simply because there's no bull-shyte extra-electronics added to the bike, only the stuff that's needed in operation is supplied.

It's the modules that get you on these new vehicles (and bikes too)... and it takes at least six or more years before anyone has a work around, and even then it requires programing. 

That is one thing they know, people can fix most things but they can't fix circuts that have billions of transistors and fine wires that can only be serviced in lab like settings by robots. And even if you could, there is still the proprietary software / logic to make it work. A double whammy if you will... 

What are your thoughts on these new electric bikes coming out?

I used to watch the "Isle of Man" races all the time, right up until Super-Cheap-Auto stopped importing the DVD's, & even then they became a single disc item, but without the onboard camera footage, which was the highlight of the whole thing...Anyhow, all this to say, that back in 2014, they were getting the "electric bikes" to last long enough, that they could complete at least 1 x 37-mile lap, at an average speed of I think 100-mph, with veteran racers onboard...

In the real world however, I'd have to say that I'm not that keen on them. No doubt they'll get the performance going great, that's for sure, but the negatives outweigh the positives for me, & here's a short list...

 

* The recharge time will still be longer than the riding time, though this will improve.

* We don't need electric bikes when we can have them & cars alike running on water.

* I'd rather be cruising around in a free-energy, gravity-control-device that we should have had available since the 1950's.

* The noise that comes from a regular gas-running motorcycle keeps you alive, whereby other road users & animals alike can hear you, & are therefore aware of you.

 

As you can see, they've had them for a long while now, but like a Tesla-electric-car, they'll likely have their own issues to contend with.

*I see it as a side-step, rather than a step forward. Bring out the free-energy-devices you greedy mofo's ;) !!!
