While researching this piece, I stumbled across quite a few examples with wild superbike drivetrain swaps. I'll admit the idea of approximately 150 HP, a five figure redline and sequential shifting in a car roughly the size and weight of a large loveseat certainly has its appeal, but I also can't help but think it's missing the point.
Imagine driving the nuts off of one - shifting at 8,000, throwing it hard into curves, tires squealing, dabs of oppo. Blue smoke and a chain saw massacre exhaust note belching out of the tailpipe, popping and echoing off of everything - kids in a school zone, pedestrians, parked cars on a residential side street - all safely under 30 MPH.
Yeah, best to leave it as Suzuki originally intended it to be - a noise machine for pragmatic hoons.
