    That is a truck load of money, but let's remember that they are pretty much bolt on kits and are finished pretty well. I Turbocharged mine for about 2000euros, including the clutch etc. and it's all about how well you make it, when it comes to leg room and maintenance. I'm actually surprised I got my parts to fit well enought that nothing needs to come off when doing maintenance :O and no problem with legroom either. Most popular older sport bikes really do have 150hp and only weigh about 190kg, but the ones making over 200hp are way newer and cost much more than turbocharging your own bike yourself. Buuut in the end of it all I think it's all about what you want from your bike.
    Be comfortable riding hundreds of miles a day with a passanger and gear, or blast 3,5s from 0-60 alone. Now I can do both

        That is true. Even older Hayabusas over 170hp is more than enough for take overs. Still any cruiser with 100hp or more takes it from 0-60 or goes the same. Meaning anybody who has tried a hard start with a with a plastic bullet knows it's not just gas and flipping the clutch. I sure know. With a muscle cruiser you can take off easily without your front looking at the clouds. Again it's about what you want. Put 4k in a 500euro priced car and get 500-600hp, or buy a 50k lamborghini and lose to any over 400hp built car on everything but 0-60 or corner speed. My 99 volvo T4 only had 300hp but from 100-200km/h it was a second faster than my bosses panamera with over 100hp more. Sure the lambo or porche is relax to drive those speeds but come on... it is a bit embarressing . Lambo or Panamera could get you laid more thou....

        Anyway the more popular bikes (like busa and katanas) have reasonable priced turbo bolt on kits right here in Finland. At my town its only about 2.5k and you get that safe 300hp from busa for example. Killer machines move alot here now days Tops speeds on mile going about 380km/h when my bike's tops out at 208km/h . Stock busa with a light rider goes 320km/h on mile. Then again that 300hp busa goes the same from 0-60 than a stock v-rod or warrior so....
        But i don't even like high speeds. More about that damn factor you get in a car with something else. Instant power or just insane top speed. Anything that gives that WOW feeling is good

          Those kind of thing make me go wow I've been on 750hp volvo v40 and e55amg mercedes etc and they both make me giggle like a little girl. From the massive grunt of the Amg to the volvos never ending acceleration.
