    I'm sure it goes faster, lights the road better and brakes better.
    @zohaibak - congratulations in advance! Iss baar ki eidi kamaal.

    I am not sure. We had used 97 for the 14.

    On the Busa though we have used any and all kind of regular petrol without any additives. There has been no side effect of any kind till date!

    Congratulations! Looking good. Ride safe and far.
    Stick to normal fuel from a good pump if 97 is not available. Avoid boosters, they will eventually clog your injectors.

    The 14r is indeed slightly more comfortable in terms of ergonomics than the Fat Gixxer. This is coming from some one who has ridden around 55,000 kms combined on just these two bikes.
    It has this slightly better riding position than the Busa, though an old 14r rider once suggested otherwise.
    The new 14r really has arm ripping acceleration right out of the crate. Just put some slip ones and you sorted. The electronics are non intrusional , the ride is comfortable and its an all rounder.
    Using normal fuel,you will experience some occasional knocking when holding on to a higher gear at lower speeds at an incline. The exhaust tone will become more guff and the engine runs slightly coarser with increased vibes. But the bike runs faster and quicker.
    I have used all sort of petrol on my Busa during our trips and it runs fine mostly unless of-course the quality is as bad as turpentine.
