    I'm not a big Drag Racing fan, and correct me if I'm wrong, but most drag bike's I've seen have been Busa's or Hog's, I think this could be the new bench mark in Hyper Bikes! Be interesting to see what Suzuki does in the coming year!

    Sounds like your gunna have some fun Quasi!!

    probably no mods actually, you can do a mid 9 sec run standard so with a top drag racer on the bike it will likely do it standard.

    The Bike comes with a Drag setting on the LCD display which tells you whereto launch it , what revs etc.

    Should be a goodin, not that interested in draggin myself.

    It sounds like an awesome machine.

    I've heard there may be ground clearance issue when conrering hard?

    Anyone know about this or what the general consensus is for hard sport riding?

    You reckon, that mid 9's was with a pro drag racer, anyway to get to 178mph in 8.4 secs, it is highly modded, but there are a lot of rules in AMA/Prostar that limit them from going faster, they are only allowed to use street approved tyres, no slicks, frames cannot be modifed, some changes to steering angles are allowed, internal engine work is unlimited, the use of nitrous and turbochargers as well as superchargers is reasonably restrcicted to certain types of motors, and some weight restrcitions on 4 cylinder machines.

    But the series is based around street stock machines.

    Quasi if you can run a mid 9sec pass, i am forever your bitch.
