Default My 2nd from last project.

2nd last project.
OK I know its a tupperwear bike, so please don't rip me head off
Its was a high performance street/drag bike.
Dutch supercharger and some.
Home build apart from the blower install and electri-whizery.
PCIII infact and generic softwear followed up with dyno time.
Twin fuel maps switchable whilst riding.
Lowish power setting and a full OMG setting.

A standard Hayabusa is extremely rapid.
1st gear = 83 mph top speed.
2nd gear = 115 mph
3rd gear = 143 mph
4th gear = 171 mph
5th gear = 190 mph
6th gear = ???

But sometimes you need more power?
Forced induction is the way to go.
Plenty of turbo bikes out there, but not many supercharged.
This was a lot of work, but great fun.
Too long a spec sheet and max 240 rwhp.





Pure adrenalin rush.

3rd, 4th, 5th, an 6th gears would be redundant in my case! My sphincter wouldn't be able to cope with the rest after the 2nd!

And you totally lost me after all the techno gizmo wizardry!

Just looks Faaast standing still!

Electro-whizardry is not my best subject so I leave it to the experts.
There are different grades of fast for certain.
You have to recalibrate your brain for this bike.
Even with my bulk on it and a 5" stretch on the wheelbase the front wheel lifted all too easily in any gear just on the throttle.

I knew a bloke who had a Busa - he was well know for being a bit of an animal on two wheels, and even he parted with the bike cos he said he kept trying to find out how fast it would go and he thought he would probably kill himself!

There are so many street bikes now in the 200mph bracket.
Tbh you are not going to buy one and keep it below 60 or 70mph, it aint going to happen.

My own personal view of the Hayabusa is that its probably the most accomplished motorcycle ever built. I know died in the wool Harley riders in the US who have felt the desire to try a Hayabusa and been amazed when they do.
No harm in having one of each in the garage like some of them do.

Now I sort of like that ....... I like fast, but busa's aint my thing, I'm afraid I'm in that old argument of ZZR1400 v Busa.

Its not the technology and engine, its the looks, but the blue and black is the best colour and the earlier versions look better than the later ones IMHO
