That’s what everyone wants, right? If your bike doesn’t have one hundred and fifty horsepower, while weighing less than four hundred pounds, you might as well peddle your Big Wheel back to your mom’s house. If you can’t do a buck eighty, what the fuck are you doing with your life? Why bother? Every year, the…
There’s just something about putting taking a fast engine from one machine and sticking it into an inappropriate host body for the purpose of shits and giggles that speaks to the heart of every motor-loving enthusiast. Especially when the end result is both uncontrollable and trying to kill you. Meet the ‘Busa Buggy,…
300 horsepower Kawasaki H2Rs are cute and all, but Kawasaki hasn’t even managed to break the 220 mph mark yet. This turbocharged Hayabusa was hitting those speeds in its preteen years and is now chasing the glory of that elusive 300 mph club.
Yes, we love light bikes. They're more maneuverable, easier to park, and just feel more alive. But a gifted rider can make even the portliest pig dance, or in this case, a 197-HP Suzuki Hayabusa that comes in at a wet weight of 592 pounds. Skills, this guy has them.
In 1997, RAF Wing Commander Andy Green piloted the twin-jet-powered Thrust SSC to 763 mph to nab the land-speed record. Today, he's racing a Suzuki Hayabusa-powered Radical SR3 in a race at Brands Hatch. I wonder which one of those things is easier?
Bill Warner's 311 MPH run on his 1000 horsepower turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa may not be an official record, but that doesn't make this video footage any less amazing.
Motorcycle drag racing is pretty insane to begin with, but trying to break into the very low seven second range on a pro street nitrous equipped Hayabusa without a wheelie bar is taking it to a new level. That is exactly what motorcycle racer Doug Witt was attempting to do when the crash you see here occurred.…
Florida motorcycle racer Bill Warner set a new world speed record for a street motorcycle at the Texas Mile in October, hitting 278.6 mph on his turbocharged Hayabusa. The onboard video may leave you weak in the knees.
We've long admired the crew performing a Hayabusa engine transplant into a Mazda Miata, both for its technical complexity and sheer steel cojones. The latest lesson: When it comes to molding carbon fiber air horns, nothing beats a Trojan.
The gauge cluster from the Hayabusa-powered Speed Unlimited MC-10 buggy makes the inside of the high-flying desert ripper look like an aircraft cockpit. Is there video? Of course.
In case you had any doubt the 455 HP Radical SR8LM is street-legal, they drove it from England to the Nurburgring to break their own record with a 6:48 lap time. Here's the you-were-there ride-along footage.
What's that you say? Can't afford one of those new V8 Ariel Atom 500s? Well, who says the only way to have an insane power-to-weight ratio with four wheels is in one of those trackday toy cars? They're barely streetable anyways. Just do what this guy did, and mount a Hayabusa engine on your go-kart. It may have a…
