Turbo Hayabusa sets new streetbike top speed record


The Suzuki 'Flying Hippo' Hayabusa really is the real deal...

Frank 'The Flying Dutchman' Gillebaard has, according to some website reports, set a new top speed world record for modified streetbikes. During a recent event in the UK, in Elvington (on a disused airport…) Gillebaard hits speeds of 424.64km/h on his turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa. Reports say that he did this on street tyres, though we wonder which street tyres are capable of speeds in excess of 400km/h!

In second place was Jack Frost, who ran his turbo ’Busa at 411.68km/h, and in third was Andy Head, who hit 385.28km/h on his turbo Kawasaki ZX-12R. It just gets Faster and Faster… :-)
