1300 cc Hayabusa dragster at NHRA summit series barona drag
The Suzuki Hayabusa (or GSX1300R) is a sport bike motorcycle made by Suzuki since 1999. It immediately won acclaim as the world's fastest production motorcycle, with a top speed of 188--194 miles per hour (303--312 km/h).
Hayabusa (隼?) is Japanese for "peregrine falcon", a bird that often serves as a metaphor for speed due to its vertical hunting dive, or stoop, speed of 180 to 240 miles per hour (290 to 390 km/h), the fastest of any bird. In particular, the choice of name was made because the peregrine falcon preys on blackbirds, which reflected the intent of the original Hayabusa to unseat the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the world's fastest production motorcycle. Eventually, the Hayabusa managed to surpass the Super Blackbird by at least a full 10 miles per hour (16 km/h).
The high-powered lightweight engine in the Hayabusa lends itself to non-motorcycle applications. The Westfield Megabusa is an English sports car, based on the Lotus Seven, which uses the Hayabusa engine. Suzuki was the first to put the motorcycle's engine in a car, with two concept cars in 2001, the Suzuki GSX-R/4 roadster and the Formula Hayabusa, an open wheel race car "designed for a new Japanese one-make competition series."
Mike Akitoff's 2004 land speed record attempt Ack Attack streamliner used twin Hayabusa engines in an attempt to exceed 300 miles per hour (483 km/h) at Bonneville Salt Flats. In 2006 and again in 2008 Akitoff's Ack Attack, piloted by Ricky Robison, succeeded, first going 342.797 miles per hour (552 km/h) in 2006, only to be surpassed two days later, then returning in 2008 to set another new record of 360.913 miles per hour (581 km/h). That record stood until it was broken on 24 September 2009 by Chris Carr going 367.382 miles per hour (591 km/h).
Radical Sportscars designed a 2.8 L (170 cu in) V8 engine based on the inline-four Hayabusa engine and using the same head design, known as the Powertec RPA V8 engine to power their SR8 car. The 455 bhp (339 kW) sports car set the record for the fastest production car at Nürburgring. John Hartley, president of a custom printing machine manufacturer, also based a 75° V8 engine that weighs 200 lb (91 kg) on the Hayabusa engines, initially intended to power his Caterham Seven sports car, producing 400 bhp (300 kW) and 245--250 lb·ft (332--340 N·m) torque.

Hayabusa turbo dyno test with Geartronics paddleshift
This is a turbocharged Hayabusa powered
car of Austria's Georg Pacher undergoing Dyno testing at Radical
Performance Engines. Gear shift is by the Geartronics closed-loop GCU,
interfaced to a Life Racing F88 engine ECU. Dyno testing does not accurately
simulate the real loads on a transmission, but it can be a useful tool to
get some baseline parameters, and to help improve engine response for the
downshift throttle blipping. One thing we don't do is make claims about
gear shift times that have been acheived during Dyno testing, as this would give
a false impression of what is possible on track.
Suzuki Hayabusa - 240 MPH /390KPH
Wheelie from 70 to 140 mph (113 - 225 kph) with 3 shifts! Speedometer is in
MPH. 240 MPH=390KPH
"at speeds over 180mph (290kph) the air in the helmet is completely sucked
out by the passing air, so you cannot breathe. So it's not possible to
sustain those speeds for more than a number of seconds."
