Freak of the Week: 2500+ whp/ton

Welcome to #7 of Freak of the Week, where for every weekend, we look for something balls off the wall crazy, polarizing or just weird and worth talking about.

This week I want to show you a purpose built standing mile machine. Now I'm sure many of you are more than familiar with Suzuki Hayabusas and although this one doesn't look any different from the rest of the lot, you'll soon realize that's exactly what makes it so special. Think of it as Dr. Bruce Banner. Reserved (as far as Hayabusas go) at first impression, but you'll need no more than a brief introduction with this 'busa before you find a Garrett GT40 turbo underneath... maxing 35 psi... pushing 636 whp.

636whp in a 480lb motorcycle?! This has got to be illegal in at least 40 countries. And that's fine, because it's still nothing short of a hero at the Maxton Mile.

I saved the best number for last. HULK SMASH at 1:56!!
