I presume that you would have to use original Busa fairings and bodywork to obtain maximum downforce, or put in some serious wind tunel hours $$$ :-) I was just interested in theoretical speed :-)

The bike red lines in top...and gets there pretty quickly. I've played with stock busa's and I've never known one with 'stock everything' capable of hitting the rev limiter in 6, but they still manage to pull big speeds (180+mph)...mine will rev up there in top as it does have an awful lot more torque and hp and less weight to get there and even though the aerodynamics are not super slippery...it is good for 200mph+.. allegedly officer. Same engine and turbo unit in something longer with the boost wound up a little would easily go another 20-30mph quicker...after that it requires serious aerodynamics and major hp to start pushing something through the air much quicker... down force can actually hinder top speed once you start pushing past 125mph.
Given the wheelbase and weight and the fact you can provoke its front wheel in the air in 5-6 I'll take all the down force I can get!!!

I referred to the current state of build. At this time the record for a bike built to the rules of "partial streamlining" is 311.945.

This thread is a prime example of why SAR was created.

There are those out there with MAD skilz and when those few who document the process and then make it so we of the armchair cheering section are able to follow along, well it's a vicarious thrill for all who seek out these gems of inventive genius.

I for one can't wait for the next exciting episode of "I wonder what would happen when we..."

Where is that record??? Cos with the flick of an allen key and the twist of a wrist this thing could crack that.
My turbo charged GSXR went along way into the 300 zone...even though it was indicating 299, it was still pulling hard. The busa goes even better!!! Where's the box of 38 toothed sprockets?

That Miles Per Hour my friend. 502.027 Kilometers Per Hour. And if you wish to break Bill's record it was done here. Good luck.

If you decide to do it please post up I want to be there and watch 'cause that will be something to see.

After I posted the comment about 38 toothed sprockets and worked out the theoretical speed I realized that you could very well have been talking fluent American...and had been talking about wonderful mph instead of huge great look at me aren't I impressive kmh!!!!

Cracking the 300mph needs well over 800bhp in a motorcycle that has the same drag coefficient of a recently sharpened pencil.

Huge respect, thanks for the link.

Hey. No ill feelings intended. Your bike is both beautiful and unique.

I just figured you spoke metric when I read that. The horsepower is secondary to the wall of air you must push out of the way at 200+ MPH. It causes wheelspin and all sorts of ugly happenings that can soil clothing at those velocities.
