To hang with the big boys at the famed Daytona Bike Week a custom has to have style, power and a little something extra. Moto-Boutique put together a black beast that kills the streets wherever it rolls.
When Jai Infanzon of Moto-Boutique began work on a 'Busa to bare his wares at Daytona Bike Week, he envisioned an all-out streetfighter that would match the assortment of bikes resting in his stables. But when the original chopped plastics experienced a problem and with a specific purpose behind the build, the soon-to-be streetfighter quickly transformed into a Bike Week beauty.
The first order of business was to ensure that the shop's goods would be the focal point of the build. This was accomplished by trimming, tucking and otherwise manipulating the stock bodywork to open up the bike's midsection.
A custom-fabricated bellypan was cut to contour the engine cases and a drag-style upper was integrated for added style. Chad Chambers Customs laid tribal paint on a gloss-black background to accentuate the curves of 'Busa's bodywork.
A beefy power plant was the next order of business and this motor is definitely the business. Infanzon popped open the case and set to work on the rice cooker's internals. A slick set of Wiseco pistons were hung, boosting the compression to a stout 12.5:1. Next came a WEB 395 intake cam, Muzzys oil bypass kit, APE adjustable gears and a billet idler gear. The monstrous motor now had a bigger appetite, so a Power Commander III USB was installed to manage the altered fuel mapping.
With a motor on more steroids than a KFC chicken, Infanzon had to modify the intake and exhaust just to keep the thing breathing. The stock airbox was trimmed and tailored to deresrict flow and make full use of the massive lobes on the intake cam. On the exit end, a custom 4-into-1, stainless steel exhaust sends the spent gases sailing.
With a claimed 189.8 horses at the rear wheel, the big 'Busa needed help keeping the front end grounded. Wheelie control came courtesy of a 6-inch-over, double-braced JMC aluminum swingarm. Complementing the tribal paint are a set of RC Components Assassin rims, running a 200mm Metzler Sportec rubber out back.
In an effort to contrast the chrome-it-all infatuation in his shop's home state of Florida, Infanzon opted to paint the frame gloss black and polish the bike's accented components. Everything from the swingarm and rearsets to the frame plugs, brake calipers and master cylinder have been polished to a blingy finish. Front and center are the bike's billet engine case covers that Moto-Boutique features at its customization shop.
Moto-Boutique took a would-have-been streetfighter Hayabusa and created one smooth, slick custom ride to put on display at Florida's biggest biker bash. This rolling wonder highlights what a keen sense of style, a few bolt-on shiny bits and some tough internals thrown together at the final hour can do to your basic 'Busa.
