Cool Turbo kit by Performance Technology

Italian motorcycle tuner, Performance Technology is building a turbo kit for KTM RC390, Yamaha YZF-R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
The kit for RC390 and R3 are already done and it was at the motorcycle show.

This turbo set up will be making very modest 60hp for all three bikes because they did not want to sacrifice the reliability.

The turbocharger on duty is an IHI RHB31 which is apparently the world's smallest turbo.

It will be interesting to see how these kits perform. Back in 1980s and 1990s, Japanese big 4 tried to develop turbocharged 250cc sportbikes, but added weight, heat, cost, engineering complications proved it difficult to make it a reality.

I wonder how the lag is on those.

I recall the turbo bikes from the 80's lagged so bad they would wash out in corner exits. Insurance companies wouldn't insure them.

I'd be more worried about the cooling and whether it'd properly fit underneath the fairings.

One of the guys I was talking to at the track mentioned his local race org allows any modifications to the R3/ninja 300- I'ld definitely be buying the kit if I lived where he does

How do you guys think this performance increase will be compared to that of the big bore kit being discussed or Kingsley's rotary valve system?

I know it is all speculation at this point, but its damn fun

Why compare them when it is possible to have them both?
