650 Racebike Project

Has anyone seen the awesome article on the March 2013 Sport Rider magazine on a race-prepped 2012 650?

NO...but I would love to see the whole article....the bike looks pretty badass from the picture...and I have a 2013 650 so I'd be very interested in seeing what they've done with the same bike as I own

Yeah get the magazine. It has a lot of pictures of the project and a horsepower/torque graph. They also list all the places where you can buy all the parts. Pretty sweet!

A bike dealer in Sweden did a similar work on a er6 '06.
They spent over 36000 us $ on it. added a turbo andra cranked upp the
power significantly. I guess most parts of the bike were modified, replaced or removed.
The article is in swedish only and the bike is now for sale.
