Suzuki Prototype: Boost King

Has a turbo charged Hyabusa motor.

Came out in 2002... will it be dumbed down for the consumer?

Who knows.

I am sure leather would fuse to your bones on this.

Hey Bob,

I've looked at that before. I think its only overseas right now BUT i would love it in the states.

It's a beefed up Road Warrior twin isn't it?

Yamaha makes GREAT stuff!

I miss my FZ-1.

Just got the latest issue of Fast Bikes. They confirm that Yamaha is going to make a bike based on the MT 01 and MT 03 concepts.

The concept Mt 01 is an 1700cc V-twin.

Question is will it be more like the MT 01 with 150lb-ft of torque? Or more like the MT 03? (Single with ??? HP/Torque)

Yep! Euro only at this point. Here's the European Yamaha site: http://www.yamaha-motor-europe.com/products/motorcycles/sport_roadster/MT_01.jsp

The last day i had the FZ i cracked the throttle up tapping 150mph, the bike was still pulling hard! I backed off due to nut shrinkage. Real speed, I miss but i ride 2 up alot and wanted a little more comfort and slower thinking.

That R6 is GREAT! I knew you would like it. Amazing what 600cc inline 4 OR any inline 4 can do. SMOOOOTH! Rode my buddys gsxr 750 the other day... YEEHHAAAH!!! He is trading up for the GSXR1000.

I love the harley but throttle response a non option. One thing that is nice about harley is the machine quality is excellent. I am doing a bit of performance work to it but its still a potato maker.

PS: Bob did you do some jet work on it?

Yep, the Blue Flame "EVO". I like the idea of the removable baffle. Most of the exhuast manufacturers make slip-ons like this, but they are only available in Europe. The Blue Flame is the only one I know of that is readily available in the states.

It's nice to have the option of being noisy or not.
