    WRX v's Suzuki Hyabusa

    Last night I took my car out, I was alone and just felt like a cruise. Anyway, I usually never provoke a street race, but this time I did, as it was always a dream for me to run a bike, and not just any old bike, a Suzuki Hyabusa (spelling?)
    I'm sure you guys know what this beast is, if you dont, I think it is a 1300cc 4 cylinder and is the fastest road bike it the world, quarter mile in 11 flat and a top speed of 320+km/h (approx 200mph)
    Anyway, I saw him on the freeway, and came next to him and tried to gee him up by reving my engine and all that. Anyway, he popped his wheel up and held it for a while (must know how to drive) then I knew it was on.
    To cut an already long story short, he was absolutely, and I mean ABSOLUTELY stunned when he realized that we were neck and neck, with me eventually pulling on him once I hit 6000rpm and up (about 2 car lengths) at about 240km/h. After that he would blow me because of gearing. He was a really nice guy as we pulled over and talked for ages. He begged me to take him for a ride, and when he stepped out after the ride, he said "wanna swap".
    I was a happy man that night

    Hayabusa is fast, but not quick, and now if run into a GSX1000R, fireblade, or an R1, and it MIGHT be a different story.
    I have TL1000R, and it destorys my WRX within a second. you must have a sick-fast car. ( knowing that TLR is nothing compare with busa, don't even mention gixers.)
    next time you see a gixer (suzuki), run them, and bring us the joy of WRX beating a 9 second bike. ( no sarcasm)

    I did , that is why I said gixer will be a better match for him. a 9 second bike with a not so good rider (like me) equals he wins.

    wow, 10 second street Subaru. I didn't know something like that existed.
    GSX1000R has like 140hp right? I can't imagine the power to weight ratio on that thing.

    Suzuki GSX-R 1000 143.6 RWHP 374 lb dry= 437lb
    1/4= 9.76@148
    Suzuki GSX1300R aka Hayabusa 156.1 RWHP 480lb dry=550lb
    1/4=10.34@140.8
    now you do the math.

    I love magazine racing,,,

    I saw a beach cruser, had the banana seat (adds 15 HP) and the airplane hangar bars (another 15HP). Not sure how much HP the tassles add but maybe you could run him in your RSX-S and find out.

    I am pretty sure that the Kawasaki ZX-11R is the quickest production bike made. Car & Driver had the 10 quickest vehicles or something like that about a year ago and the ZX-11R was raced by a pro but with no bar in the back and he was able to run I think a 9.5 and he shifted half way through 1st. Also, has anyone seen the video a supra with 70 shot race a turbo Hayabusa at a 70mph roll? Now this is a fast car!

    I thought the Hayabusa was the quickest myself. Ive seen some at the tracks running low 9s all night long.

    Gixxer 1000s are fast as well.

    That video was freakin' awesome! My adrenaline was pumping just watching it! The white centerline was zipping by like crazy. The fastest I've ever had my bike was 150mph, that was plenty fast for me.

    actually , gixer 1000 is the quickiset(accel) ,but busa is the fastest (top end). yes it says 220 MPH, and busa is the king of motorcycle, as far as zx12R ( not 11, 11 sucked ), fast but not as well performed as busa.

    If you look closely, he pegs the speedometer at 10,250 rpms and continues to accelerate up to 12,000 rpms so he was actually going faster than 220 mph indicated. There is a lot of error in speedometers at those speeds, the only sure way to know how fast he was going is a radar gun.
