Bog standard Kawasaki ZX14R engine = over 200 horsepower. Add a turbo = 300 horsepower. Add NOS = 400 horsepower...

Y2k is a nice bike, but 180 000 US dollars? And I don't need to go 400 km/h. I want to, but I don't NEED to. :twisted:

A stock standard Busa is 176 hp.
A ZX14 is around 185 standard.
But the Busa is a stonger engine so much more desirable.

My turbo Busa is being built to handle 400hp internally, (Carillo rods & forged pistons, balanced crank etc), but I'm only going to dyno it up to 300hp for reliability.

There are companies in the UK that produce 450 hp Busa's that are reliable.
There is a street bike Busa in the UK that pumps out 720 hp !!.
Now that is wild.


If you cannot hold onto the handle bars of a 100 hp bike then something is seriously wrong.
Especially when you consider guys hang onto Nitro drag bikes that are in excess of 1000hp.
Most street legal superbikes are in excess of 180 hp & get better traction than a chopper ever will.

Sorry Tony - I meant stock internals. Who doesn't put an exhaust and chip in their roadbike these days?

Predator, don't take it personally. I too prefer cruising bikes.
Buggies on the other hand, I prefer them to scare me :D.
As it gets not so scary, I upgrade.
If you want to build a show buggy that cruises go for it, more power to ya.
Just don't kid ya self it's "high powered", it get's up the noses who care about power ;)
