I present, a bike faster than the H2R

The Kawasaki H2R is the fastest bike around. Or is it?



This is a turbocharged Hayabusa and it is attempting to to hit the 300 mph mark. To note, the H2R hasn't broken the 220 mph mark yet.

The Hass-Serafini Racing land speed bike began its life as a Suzuki Hayabusa. Now, thanks to custom fabrication shop Fab-U-This, itís a compound turbocharged Frankenstein bike running on methanol. That weird, droopy dick looking thing on the front isnít a headlight - but instead serves as a massive air intake.
Dyno runs have measured the bike at 566hp, "but Steve guesses the bike is actually in the 700-800 hp range."

Don Hass will ride this bike in an attempt to catch/break records held by the great Bill Warner: Brocks Performance: 311.94 MPH: WORLD'S FASTEST MOTORCYCLE ROLLS ON BST CARBON-FIBER WHEELS

H2's and H2R's are incredible production machines - but true race bikes are in a league by themselves.

FYI: Bill's streetbike (also a turbo Busa) ran 278 MPH in a standing mile...

Here you go: Brocks Performance: Bill Warner / Team Wild Bros. Racing Sets Land Speed Record at 278

Bill would ride this bike to the Quaker Steak and Lube in Clearwater.
Don't get me wrong... it had a headlight and a tail light and certainly pushed the limits of the word 'streetbike', but off boost, he could drive it in traffic just fine - and merging into traffic was no problem

Bill was the baddest of the bad. He is missed by all who knew him.

When you are riding a bike this fast, you need superhuman energy to stay in control. :P

First off this bike is designed to run with a full fairing, when you see it with a nicely painted fairing it might look pretty nice. Next, Bill Warner's bike had an estimated 1000 hp in its final version. His fastest time was 311 in the 1 1/2 mile and he was working on hitting 300 in the mile when he was killed. He was a very nice guy and just easy to talk with. I remember him coming by and discussing just small little detail items with me in the pits, I never detected an attitude about him. The one conversation that sticks out however was talking about going just super fast. Bill said you could jump on my bike and run 260 or 270 real easy, but holding on to go 300 is what takes real guts. Whenever I go past the one mile mark and think I am going fast, my mind drifts back to Bill telling me that - and yes, it screwed up a few of my big passes. RIP my friend, we loved and respected you. Someone will break your record - some day - but they will have to have a big set of cohunes!

When you go out at 7:00 am to run in cool, still air, your adrenalin is all it takes to make the big run. All the times I have done this over the last forty years, I have never needed something to help get my attention. I might need a Red Bull or an espresso to help me through boring reading, but never with a fast bike!

Yes, I should clarify. 'bad' in with my utmost respect as a rider and tuner - He was very humble and kind. Our conversations in private were not what most got to hear. That man was also a lion - quietly competitive in a sense that is difficult to put into words. Sort of like a sniper - with a 100 CAL (if such an animal existed) - they never saw it coming.

In a sport where a 5 MPH gap might take your competitors 2-5 years to catch up... Bill gapped them by 30 MPH (?!) and that's exactly how he wanted it. You will need to work as hard as Bill to catch his record (s), and you quite literally could die trying. Most of them simply quit.

Hat's off to those trying to catch him and I wish them the safest journey possible.
