New generation Hayabusa"s stock are 1340 cc's so the 1500's that are being used a lot would be a lot more expensive to rebuild.The 1000cc GSXR powered ones are pretty slow in a straight line even compared to our M3's.Remember these cars have a lot of downforce so they need horsepower on a faster track to be WAY too much fun!
