we have here is a true “dice kop”, a legend
in his own time! This is one of the fastest Suzuki GSXR
750’s in Town if not thee fastest! Even though,
not much was done to the motor of this bike, plenty was
done around it. With a rider like Shaughn Fortuin, better
known as KAT, riding it and Julian from Superbike Solutions
doing all the fine tuning , sponsored by Suzuki South
makes this 2006 GSXR750 the fastest in CAPE TOWN if not
South Africa! Looking at his bike you will notice it looks
more like a race bike than a road bike. So let’s
call it a road race bike, it sure looks as hot as one
and definitely performs like none other!
KAT for some time and knowing that he likes to “druk”
(race), we often land up pushing our bikes to the limits,
but KAT with more than 20 years biking experience, racing
on the track, with the top secret setup he has, always
comes out tops. A cool and collected racer, he is a force
to be reckoned with. So if you’re riding a 750 and
decide to see what you can do on the quatermile drags
to take a prize, think again! Kat has been reining supreme
with a quatermile time of 9.90 seconds! Yes 9.90 on a
GSXR750! I know of 1000cc bikes going slower than that!
And yes he likes taking them 1000’s on 2! Occasionally
even beating them! It’s not only about the bike,
it’s also about the racer piloting those two wheeled
monsters! A cool head, nerves of steel and knowing your
bike is what makes Kat the supreme drag racer he is!
