Excellent!
Let's see if the Ack Attack team gets as much press as the last record holder. I have a theory.

It'd be nice to have some details about the bike.

Hokay, it's powered by two Hayabusa engines.

The Busa pretty much ruined the chances of other manufacturers to compete on the salt, I mean how can you compete with a slightly modified motorcycle that cruises at 150 mph before hitting the speed traps at full throttle? Impossible!

I'm sure you could un-cork a ZX14 enough to get some passable speed out of it

If I remember the last bike correctly- it has two busa twin turbo motors. Weighed slightly less than the streamliner that Chris Carr set the previous record with.
