Zero to 270km/h in less than 9 seconds
Kawabanga, or rather should I say Suzibanga Velocity Racing’s kit has been designed to bolt straight on to a stock bike – apart from heavier clutch springs, no other engine modifications are needed. But yes, the bike’s swingarm needs to be lengthened and braced for added strength.With 8psi (about 0.55 bar) of boost, the turbocharged GSX-R1000 will make 250 horsepower and will accelerate from zero to 270km/h in 8.63 seconds. With some tweaks, VR expect this time to come down to 8.3 seconds, hold on to your nickers! The full system costs about US$4,000. More details on the VR website here.
