We all have heard Suzuki’s primary weapon in the arsenal, and that is “Hayabusa,” but have you heard Hayabusa clocking 425 km/h and that has 650 horses. Now, this is seriously fast.
Oh Lord, we too, are thinking. Does this kind of Hayabusa even exist?
Well, it does, and to get one, we expect your pockets to be thick as this will cost you similar to that of a high- end sports car.
While there has been Hayabusa on the motorcycle scene but this is different. It is the work of science and art from Mick Ellis and his wife, Becci. Becci also holds the female speed record. The bike is on sale for Euro 34,000.
We assumed it could cost high, but for 650 hp, we think it is relatively low.
What does it get?
The bike is developed in collaboration with BDR performance, and it took more than 17250 hours, which is close to 2 years. The 1,300 cc – 4 cylinder comes with Garrett GT35 turbo, all-new gearbox, new injectors, plus other crucial components. Plus, there are changes in aesthetics, as well.
This 650 horses Hayabusa is on sale, and if you want to get hold of this, you can connect with Mick on his Facebook handle.
