Velocity Racing: 250bhp GSX-R1000 Turbo!

Zero to 270km/h in less than 9 seconds. Bring it on!

Velocity Racing are now offering a turbo kit for the Suzuki GSX-R1000. The company has, in the past, made some of the fastest streetbikes in the world and their GSX-R1000 Turbo is no different.

Velocity Racing’s kit has been designed to bolt straight on to a stock bike – apart from heavier clutch springs, no other engine modifications are needed. But yes, the bike’s swingarm needs to be lengthened and braced for added strength.

With 8psi (about 0.55 bar) of boost, the turbocharged GSX-R1000 will make 250 horsepower and will accelerate from zero to 270km/h in 8.63 seconds. With some tweaks, VR expect this time to come down to 8.3 seconds! The full system costs about US$4,000. More details on the VR website here.
