That bike is "sick"!

(that slang for something "wild" or over the top for the english second speakers) and I thought the 180 hp or so my bike makes was nutty...

very cool to see people pushing the envelope of sanity!

That makes sense

In the way that a nitrous bottle on a Hayabusa makes sense. One thing I have not felt about owning this bike is the need for more power, but more power to them. A friend of mine built K1 turbos in the early 90's that made 200hp and that seemed kind of extreme to me, but I guess there are no limits to the need for more speed. I don't think it will do lot for the life of the engine/drivetrain however.

I too would love to hear about the riding impression of a turbocharged K12 S or R.

Until then enjoy this video of a turbocharged Hayabusa.

Note that he pegs the needle at 220 MPH at 10,000 rpm and continues on up to just past 11000 RPM's
