Let's see. It cost 3 times what a Hayabusa cost and still does not beat it in the quarter mile. That's progress for you.

Default That didn't take long

Not too many people out there can get a 'Busa into the nines without flipping it.

As if the average rider can take any bike into the 9s.

It requires skill to properly launch any bike.

A Harley has a heavier frame. The front wont claw towards the sky.

So what do I have to do to get that engine into a street version of the V-Rod (prefereably a VSCR). or how do I convince a company to register and insure this bike is I put street tires on this one.

AMEN!



Buy a Busa using the extra $20K getting a dedicated track bike and a dirt bike with all the safety gear and modest upgrades.

OR

Buy a factory race bike from HRC.

OR

Buy the Busa, heavily modify it and invest (the Harley name doesn't count) the rest.

OR

Buy the Busa and dump the $20K into it and have an insane drag bike.

Of course @ $31,xxx you're assuming you could get the bike for sticker, which we all know doesn't happen. I figure about $45,000 by the time you're all said and done..

He needs to be wearing flip-flops, shorts, and a beanie with skulls. I'm surprised you didn't get kicked out.

Why do so many Harley's sound like that but don't go like that?



And if you put a wheelie bar on a Hyabusa what do you think the average Joe could do?



Now, if this were a street Harley I might be impressed, but it's not.
