MTT has achieved the 3rd rank among the top 10 fastest bikes.

Suzuki Hayabusa

Standing 2nd in the list of top 10 fastest superbikes the name Hayabusa, translates directly from the Japanese as Pergerine Falcon, the bird commonly attributed of achieving speeds of over 200 mph (322 km/h) and predator of the common blackbird.

New Cagiva bikes on Their Way?

We haven’t heard much from Varese since Harley-Davidson purchased Italian manufacturer Cagiva Group last year (including luxo-sport-bike marque MV Agusta). Harley-Davidson’s communications department doesn’t have much news of what’s going on over there, and Cagiva’s mouthpieces haven’t been tooting much, either. Other than announcing the retirement of design chieftain Massimo Tamburini, there have been no official announcements on Cagiva’s website hinting at what’s going on in that famous design studio.
But they’re working on something over there, according to our man in Italy, designer Oberdan Bezzi. Not much news about MV Agusta (although we have been hearing speculation about a three-cylinder 600 supersport machine), but Cagiva may have some things in the works. Oberdan has heard of development on two projects; a revamped Elefant adventure-tourer and a superbike, both utilizing the Rotax-built Helicon 1125 powerplant Buell uses in its new 1125R sportbike and 1125CR cafĂ© racer.
