umm no the hyabusa is in the super sport catagory of bikes. go to www.suzuki.com if you dont belive me. 1300 cc, a top end stock around 185, 0-60 in i belive 1.6 or something like that. The hyabusa is a drag bike and suzukis R1 is their race track bike. Get your information correct before you post.

Um no, you need to get your information correct before YOU post. As odd as it may seem, not everyone lives in the USA. In the USA the Bus is in fact marketed as a sport bike. In Europe, where Cliffy lives, the Bus is marketed as sport touring bike.

As for your statement that the Bus is a dragbike, it is used in both drag racing and road racing. And the R1 is also used in both types of racing as well. Unfortunately the R1 is a Yamaha not a Suzuki.

Remember, correct information.

since we are on the fact of getting correct facts i am going my the official web site. I am not a master at european marketing nor do i care to be. Yes both can be used for both drag and track racing, but the general purpose intended is to be a drag bike. yea running backs can catch a pass but the intent is to run. and if you look at the website like i poasted suzuki does have an r1... the gsx-r1000 i am sorry but i dont use the gsx in common speach so i did not type it my bad... i know that yamaha has an r1 also... i have looked at both bikes extencivly. Now please get the stick out of your ass amd looking for the tinniest details to try and inflate your small ego by a mediocre attempt to appear smarter.

LOL, you tried using a Hyabusa for track racing? I sure as hell wouldn't want to, and vwhobo is correct, over here in the UK the Hyabusa is marketed as a Sport tourer which IMO is how it should be! P.S sorry for the late reply, I didn't see it till now plus I've not been around much!

Tiniest details, huh? Oddly enough I can only read what you type so I had every reason to believe you meant Suzuki R1 when you typed it. Sorry, I haven't been married to you long enough to "know what you mean". As for your assertion that the Bus is "intended is to be a drag bike" can you please direct me to the official Suzuki press release that says that, it would make interesting reading.

To let the "Suzuki R1" thing go would be like letting it slide if someone posted "Cheverolet Mustang". By the way, I don't have to do anything to appear smarter than you, all anyone has to do is read your posts to figure that one out.

Non-existent Hayabusa road-racer (see below)

Suzuki R1, LMAO! I'll tell you what would be a fun project, a 400+ hp turbo busa shifter cart. I'm sure someone has already done that though.

nope, that's a concept, not a bike

the bike with the possibility of being the world's fastest is the jet bike, one of which is owned by Leno
it has to do with the engine on that thing, the faster it goes, the more power it makes, as do all turbines

the only thing this bike really lacks is aerodynamics

Hahaha, all bikes lack aerodynamics. I thought the turbine bikes only have two gears? And you can buy the tomahawk right now, it's past the concept stage. It's just not street legal.

Factually that's correct, but you're really overstating it. There have been ten (I think) reproductions built to be sold for around $550k. The fly in the ointment is they aren't fully funtioning vehicles, so are therefore unridable.

Granted it's not too much of a stretch to believe if someone has that kind of cash laying around they can find someone to make them work. The question is, what is inop or a dummy part.
