|Kawabusa - Suzuki
Look at the
photos, then look again. That's a Kawasaki ZRX, right? Or is it? In the tradition
of Tritons and Norvins, what we have here is a Kawabusa, a Suzuki Hayabusa engine
in a Kawasaki ZRX. I like this!
I've wondered for a long
time why more guys weren't doing something like this with modern bikes and it
looks like Norm Wilding was wondering, too. Norm owns Mid Missouri Motorcycles
in Columbia, MO. He's a transplanted Englishman who grew up outside London building
not only Tritons but a whole lot more and he has a number of awards and magazine
features to his credit.
Norm took one
of the extremely popular Hayabusa engines and slipped it into a Kawasaki ZRX in
such a clean and professional installation it's hard to notice. He's mulling the
idea of building these for customers, and if he does, I bet he has a booming business.
Hayabusa power in a standard motorcycle, … Kawabusa, Dude! I REALLY like this!
