BMW M5 Is No Match for Hayabusa [Video]
text size: A- A+
Still, the M5 is no match for the Hayabusa, one of the bikes with an enormous heritage in highway racing, even in the absence of top-notch modifications. In fact one of the mods Suzuki Hayabusa riders usually go for is getting rid of the speed limiter.
Couple this with some sportier, lighter exhaust pipes and maybe a high-flow K&N air filter, and you'll ride a different bike all of a sudden, as the Busa will unleash its raw power and continue gaining speed fast, long after the indicator needle has reach the end of the gauge.
It;s really neat to see how powerful the Hayabusa actually is, as it accelerates brutally even in the 6h gear and at pretty high RPM, too. It looks like it had enough power in reserve to overtake the M5, a most worthy competitor, anyway. Next, please!
