Re: Any rumor of a new design for the Busa?
They probably won't change it until sales start to dive or Kawasaki releases a new ZX-14 or ZX-16 or whatever their next bike will be called.
Having said that, there is rumor coming from the magazines that there might be a new ZX-14 in 2012. I'd guess evolutionary and not revolutionary like ABS/traction control with "bold new graphics/colors" and maybe some new tires.
I wouldn't bother holding out for it, I really think that if it does change next year, it won't be anything too different from what we have now. And unless sales pickup quick, there won't even be a 2012 at all, just as the 2010s were skipped in the U.S. because of low sales.
