Radical SR8

This post is only tangentially about motorcycles. There is a new trend afoot in the world of high-performance track day cars. Low volume manufacturers like Radical are using motorcycle powerplants as the basis for purpose-built race engines, for cars. "Radical's engine specialist, Powertec, has grafted a pair of Suzuki Hayabusa top ends on to a common crankcase to make a 2.6-litre V8. Without any mods to the Suzuki pistons, rods, cams valvegear or heads, it puts out 383bhp at about 10,000rpm." Auto Express
