BRI­TISH ’BUSA BEATER CANNED

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - PS World -

Tri­umph’s plan to take on and beat Suzuki’s Hayabusa ended up in a Hinck­ley skip af­ter the plug was pulled on what would have been Bri­tain’s (and the world’s) fastest pro­duc­tion bike. The 1300cc, 200mph­plus ma­chine was only months away from pro­duc­tion when Tri­umph de­creed the project com­mer­cially un­vi­able. Shame.
