Hartley reworks Hayabusa powerplant for easy use in cars

Hartley reworks Hayabusa powerplant for easy use in cars
tires sports cars
We've been enamored with the idea of stuffing a Suzuki Hayabusa-derived V8 engine into an appropriately light and sporty four-wheeled conveyance since we first learned of such a powerplant's existence last Spring. The task of creating a 'Zuki-powered sled is set to become significantly easier now that Hartley Engineering has managed to rework the 'Busa block a bit. An entirely new crankcase has been designed and hewn from a huge chunk of 6061 T6 aluminum. It may not be a V8, but this new inline-four engine, known as the H2, is a diminutive powerhouse that can bolt right up to a standard automotive transmission. Why is this a big deal? Motorcycle gearboxes generally don't have a dedicated reverse gear and usually output their high-revving power via a chain. Now, the prospect of a 140-pound engine with over 200 horses powering something along the lines of a Super 7 has us salivating once again. Those with equally imaginative minds can now begin plotting their next projects, as the H2 is expected to be ready for purchase in early '09. suspensionbrakesbmwwheels

Dude, work through Abate of Oregon to get lanesharing passed. I enjoyed lanesharing while in Oregon...it only took 5 years for the cops to give me a ticket for it.

ABATE as an organization is opposed to legalizing lane sharing.

They're opposed to any law that treats motorcycles as being different from any other motor vehicle. Including laws that would benefit motorcycles.

Sevens with Hayabusa engines are nothing new under the sun.

I could see the thing ending up on an ultralight or gyrocopter, or even in a spart plane of some kind.
Wonder how the engine would like spinning 10k rpm for hours on end pushing a plane around?

MC engines in cars.....even light cars

Radical and others use bike engines to power track/minimalist cars....Ariel Atom went a different way for a reason: Bike engines do not have the bearing journal area to live a long life in even the lightest 4-wheelers. TBO can be short if the car's used hard. Atom uses a stock and/or s-c Honda two liter engine designed to push a 2800# car and lives forever in the 1300# Atom. Bruce

I don't know what the magic of a Hayabusa 'engine' supposedly is. An engine is essentially the intake system, the head & valves, cams and the exhaust.

The block, pistons, crank, rods, etc, only serve to convert the burning mixture into mechanical motion. If somebody went to the hassle of designing a new block, they weren't that far from a bigger crank, Carillo rods, Wiseco pistons and voila: high performance engine!
