Chasing motorcycle world speed records is an incredibly daunting pursuit, requiring immense amounts of power to be squeezed out of engines (without grenading the things) along with a focus on aerodynamics and stability. Despite the insurmountable odds, Mick Ellis of BDR Performance, in 2014, managed to build a turbocharged Hayabusa-based land speed racer that was able to achieve a world speed record of 264.1mph.

Fast-forward to today and that specific record not only still stands, but the very bike motorcycle it was secured on is now for sale. Built around a 1,300cc first-generation Suzuki Hayabusa, the bike sports a wide array of alterations and upgrades that enable it to break well into the triple digits. Generating an absolutely enormous 650hp (when sipping 119 octane race fuel), the ‘Busa boasts a Garret GT35 turbocharger, Bosch liter injectors, billet selector and output shafts (with BDR outrigger), a balanced crank, Carillo con-rods, Wiseco pistons, heavy-duty valve spring, single-piece valves, flowed and polished cylinder head, drag race chain, a stretched machined custom swing-arm paired with a Nitron shock, and BDR pipes terminating in dual Pipe Werx carbon-capped mufflers. If you’re interested in 200mph+ speeds on two-wheels, the bike is currently being offered by BDR Performance for $37,000.

Purchase: $37,000
