Modified Hero Xtreme by GM Customs is an Easy way to have a Suzuki Hayabusa in your Garage
Worldn biking scene has come a long way in last few years, and while there is still a long way to go before we can rub shoulders with the bike markets of the West, there’s no denying that the bike modification industry is getting hotter with every passing day. We have already seen (and featured) several modified bikes that can give similar modifications aboard a run for their money. Today, we have another such high-quality mod job that is based on a rather vanilla 150cc motorcycle. Senegal-based GM Customs has come up with a modified Hero Xtreme that looks a lot like a Suzuki Hayabusa. Yes, the motorcycle you in the images here isn’t a real Hayabusa but actually a Hero Xtreme.

Of course, this modified Hero Xtreme costs only a fraction of what a real Hayabusa does. However, only the most well trained will be able to point out the discrepancies between this modified Hero and a real Hayabusa. So, basically, this bike guarantees immediate attention and many admiring glances. As a part of the modification, the Xtreme has received a custom body kit, wide tyres, new mag wheels and a dual disc setup at front. Even the instrument cluster is new and looks almost like the one on the rear Hayabusa.
The engine remains untouched, which means powering this Hayabusa-copy is the same 149.2cc, 4 stroke, SOHC, 4-valve engine that powers the regular Hero Xtreme. This motor outputs a maximum power of 14.2 bhp along with a peak torque of 12.8 Nm. The engine offers a mileage of roughly 40 kmpl in real-world conditions. In comparison, a Suzuki Hayabusa boasts a 1340cc engine that outputs a maximum power of 197 bhp and a peak torque of 155 Nm. True, it offers only about 10 kmpl but the performance advantage it enjoys over the modified Hero Xtreme we have here is tremendous.

While the performance of this modified Hero Xtreme is simply no match to the mind-boggling numbers that the Hayabusa offers, you get almost the same looks and hence, similar levels of street presence. We feel that this is exactly what the doctor ordered to those who dream of buying a Suzuki Hayabusa but don’t have a pocket deep enough to buy one.
