yes it's a GSX 1300R but everyone under the sun still calls it a gsxr 1300 so who cares
even the manufacturers and distributors do for the most part

hell we all know these are gsxr's why because they replaced the gsxr 1100. the year the gsxr 1100 was dropped from the line up the busa came in. i still consider the busa a gsxr it meets all the same quality's the 1100 had that it replaced. if i remember right they are even the same wheelbase. busa is longer overall due to body work though. i vote keep it gsxr

it kinda bridged the gap between the gsxr 1100 and the gsx 1100s(japan only)(discontinued in 2002) models. at the time it was better that they molded it into a sport touring bike as the technology was not there yet to make it a full on GSX-R, it was badged as a GSX 1300R to show the touring side first, then address the sporty

Busa is still the coolest top end bike, as well as semi-tourer, I'd love to get one after the 80 mile commute on my Gix 750 most days..
I have 2 prs of sliders I bought from the UK a while back, they have Ti nuts and bolts in them, cool sparks, hehe.
