Bike Blowup at the WyoTech Brute Horsepower Shootout
In the Championship round of the 20th Annual WyoTech Brute horsepower Shootout,
reigning champ Todd Erickson decided to push it to the limit. After pumping
out 580 HP in 2009, Erickson wanted to go for 700!
In the qualifying rounds, he had already put up a 528 HP Dyno run with his 94 Kawasaki
ZX-11 turbo. Armed with two-stage Nitrous, Erickson set out to smash that
mark during Friday's Championship run.
Once the bike hit 517, this is what happened...
FAIL/BREAKAGE - Titan Motorcycle Battle - 500HP Turbo Busa vs. 350HP Suzuki Hayabusa
http://www.FullTiltLife.com and Kings of the Street Part 2 show what should
have been an epic matchup in roll racing. Two huge Suzuki turbo Hayabusas (one a Velocity kit, the other an
Anderson) were prepared to go head to head on a clean roll to 200+mph with
skilled and experienced riders wearing full safety gear aboard. However,
an immediate equipment failure ends any possibility of the two bikes
getting a clean run. Gilles Chain Adjusters, which are intended for racing
use only are inadequate. The only racing they ought to do is on bikes 250cc
and below. Sometimes the swoopy aftermarket stuff is less functional that
the stock pieces they are meant to replace.

Here's one group test that BMW's S1000RR might not win. BMW's ultimate
version of the S1000RR; their super-advanced HP4, is current champion in
its class, and won our MCN superbike shootout hands down.
This week it takes on the challenge of top speed against the big-power
hyperbikes, Kawasaki's ZZr1400 and Suzuki's Hayabusa.
Get the best of biking EVERY day...
