well vinsanity i do not think that any rider here will believe a busa to do those speeds only by lightening it and camshafts

i was surfing sometime long back when i came across a broken record or something , the bike was turbo charged busa which did a top speed of believe it or not 250 mph , i'm not too sure about the bhp it produced but if i m not mistaken it was 210 .

guys i don't have any evidence so please don't ask for any , just something that i recollected , thats it .

Most websites claim the Busa will hit a top speed of 191mph (305kmph) which is nowhere close to 332kmph.

It has to be the speedo read.

hey shantanu

are you sure about that because as far as i know the busa claims to have a top speed of 315 + .i dont know much if the busa really does have a big speedo error but its still stands that 332 is impossible. by the way in where did he do 332 km/h??

AFAIK busas never crossed 194mph true speed. And one mag said that when it comes to showing a higher speed on the speedo, the suzuki is the biggest liar.

Must definitely be a very big speed calibration error. Wonder why the busa has analog gauges when almost all manufacturers are shifting to digital ones.

also is it possible that the busa might have a different tire which changes the rolling dia of the front wheels and hence a large difference in the true and indicated speeds?

is this possible in bikes also?

Its required by law.


Iceman, although he didnt mention gearbox changes, im sure the ecm was retuned with the extent of those mods.

Its possible that there is some huge speedo error, and that some of the mods, possibly gearbox/rear tire have affected the speedo error further.

However, the most difficult part for me is believing you standing on the bike like that at 180-230 km/h.

Guys got these facts from suzukihayabusa.org

the stock busa has done a 202MPH at bounoville ie 323KMPH

but i guess these will all be turbo powered busas

These speeds are from the Bonneville 1/4 mile, full mile
and exit speed listings (when available). Maxton speeds
include entrance and exit speeds, where available,
and the single speeds of Texas, El Mirage and Muroc.

1) LEE SHIERTS...........256.439 MPH....MAXTON……....2004...HAYABUSA……..…E
2) JON MINONNO.........256.264 MPH....BONNEVILLE...1992...TRIUMPH……....…X
3) JOHN NOONAN……....253.152 MPH…..BONNEVILLE….2004….HAYABUSA….…..M
4) STEVE KNECUM........251.600 MPH....BONNEVILLE....2003....HAYABUSA…….M
5) SCOTT GUTHRIE.......251.148 MPH...TEXAS………......2004....HAYABUSA…....R*
6) WAYNE POLLACK......250.556 MPH....MAXTON………..2004...HAYABUSA…......X
7) DENNIS CLANTON…..245.430 MPH....BONNEVILLE....2003.....HAYABUSA.....M
JOE AMO….…….….…...244.449 MPH..…BONNEVILLE…..2004…..KAW ZX10…...M
9) RICH YANCY……….…..244.358 MPH....TEXAS…………….2004…….HAYABUSA..….R*
10) DAN KINSEY………….239.492 MPH……BONNEVILLE…..1991……HARLEY………….M

• * = TRACK RECORD WHEN RUN
• R = Record
• E = entrance speed
• X = exit speed
• Q = Bonneville ¼ mile speed
• M = Mile speed

These are not standing 1/4 mile speeds. Bonneville is purely about top speed, not acceleration and they have a huge distance to get upto that speed. I believe they have to run 3 times within a certain time period in order to have their average result be recorded.

And that Stock 'busa would not really be stock as in straight from the showroom. It would have special wheels which cut drag, the bodywork would have been optimised to reduce the drag as well. So if that bike could only manage 202mph, what are the odds of some dude running 220mph on standard wheels with stock bodywork on public roads!

well guys the 332 i did was speedo indicated and i managed only 4 to 6 seconds in which time i just had a glimpse of the speedo if my sight failed then worst it could be is 322 on the green LCD (optional meter) and will have to agree to speedo errors

but the 355 acheived by owner of the bike is on SpeedGun and thats no error - this is the fastest busa in Gulf.

now gearing and all that technical stuff i have not asked but made sure to check if it has turbo and NOS none could be sighted.
and guys the bike has mods which have costed 4 times more than a brand new busa. after all the dude is an Arab but he knew his bike inside out.
if u observe the bike u will see it has a small white thing out of the fairing which infact is a crash bar designed for the bike to glide rather than flip in a fall.

Ah! that makes sense...i was wondering what that was!.

Was watching a video the other day - stock busas reach a speedo indicated 310kmph @ exactly 11,000RPM, it seemed to top out there, but who knows whats possible with lighter engine components....

2Fast4U, why dont you ask your friend to log on to TBHP and tell us a bit about his busa, im sure that there are a ton of people here who would be extremely keen to know....plus it would get you off the hook
