This video is a few years old, but it’s still pretty remarkable. In it, a turbo Suzuki Hayabusa rider pegs the speedo at 220 kph, while the tach keeps climbing. We get to go along for the ride. Click through for the butt-clenching trip.

What’s amazing is the initial wheelie that doesn’t even slow the inexorable climb of both rev counter and speedo needle, and when the road ahead finally comes into view, it’s nothing but a blur. Good reason these engines are venerated for their capabilities.
