There are a couple of NOSsed bikes in India .. Recently there was one gsxr running a nitrous kit at one of the drags but wasnt allowed to run ..

There are apparently a couple of turbo busa's in town too .. Reliable sources have seen them and know the owners quite well ..

Should be really powerful .. The guys who bought it haven't got a hang of them yet .. And are very rarely if so ever gotten on to the streets .. And no then aren't done in india .. One is allegedly from dubai .. However the NOS installs were done here in bangalore ..

turbo busas have been known to put out close to 350 hp on bone stock internals. with forged pistons etc 500 street hp is possible on pump gas.

Turbo busas put out anywhere between 250 to 700 horses depending on the application.Street,track,drag and land speed record runs.

Search youtube .. they have many nice videos most recent being Ghostrider.

Twin turbo busa:

No it's not. Depends on how your turbo is set up. You can run close to zero boost until say, 9000 rpm. Ride around town below that, and it will probably be slower than a stock bike.

Come to think of it, 175 hp on a single wheel is pretty useless for street use too.

I think I read on another forum that a turbo busa has arrived in Delhi. But as the others said, I guess its for bragging rights only.
