Best time to date in NZ, 7.47 seconds @178.9 Mph (286KPH) in ¼ mile (400
meters). Done 7.3 @ 189mph with 149ci engine in the USA so heaps of
potential in this motor
We have blown the New Zealand record out the back door with this bike,
it is the fastest motorcycle in the country at present on NEW ZEALAND
soil where it counts, as overseas records don't stand for anything in
NZ. We were the 1st Kiwi’s to run 7 seconds in New Zealand.

The bike straight after a run, battery chargers on first thing, as it runs two ignition systems. If one fails the engine will blow, so we need lots of battery power.
