Tanom Motors has returned to SEMA with a full-on production version of the company's Invader TC-3. As you may recall, the company first showed off a concept version of the reverse trike at SEMA 2010. Tanom Motors calls the Invader TC-3 a fusion of superbike and supercar performance, which we assume makes the three-wheeler super-super. A 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine sourced from a Suzuki Hayabusa puts 194 horsepower to a 19-inch rear tire and the vehicle is supposedly capable of cl
We're not touching the car vs. bike argument this time around. Instead, we're just going to sit back, relax, and be glad people had their video cameras pointed in the general direction of the Suzuki GSX1300R (known better as the Hayabusa) and the Nissan GT-R Switzer R850 as they lined up against each other in a mile-long drag race.

The unending contest between Suzuki and Kawasaki to see who can build the world's fastest streetbike continues, with Suzuki introducing an all-new Hayabusa for 2008. The bike's engine grows from 1299cc to 1340cc for '08, and a commensurate power jump is expected to let the new 'Busa equal or surpass the numbers put up by Kawasaki's hyper-performance machine, the Ninja ZX-14. Bikeland.org has hi-res pics and full features and specs on the '08 'Busa, which will be joined in showrooms by a naked ed
var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/motorsport/VW_GOLF_with_Hayabusa_Engine_WOW'; The Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the fastest things I have ever seen in motion. A friend riding his was in front of me once at a stop, and the road ahead of him was long, straight, and wide open. The only way to describe how it looked from my car was "Millenium Falcon makes the jump to hyperspace." And to think, his was only mildly tuned.
