    Hi guys,

    I’m new to the site and i thought i would show my little Vit off. Done a few little bit and bob’s to her, have a few more little bits planned too. I bought this bike for a silly reason and have now fallen in love with her. I bought her to tow my 650 BHP turbo Busa drag bike about. So many people use Grom’s but i could not bring myself to buy a Honda!

    Could you explain a bit more about “I bought her to tow my 650 BHP turbo Busa drag bike about.” What do you mean exactly? Pics? Video?

    As someone (probably famous) once said, I understand all those words, just not in that order…..

    I’ve never heard of a “tow bike” either, but maybe it’s synonymous with “pit bike”?  A smaller bike that is used to get around the pits at races as a small agile form of transportation back and forth, and you put in your trailer or truck.

     

    Looks like a fun excuse to get a cool bike.  Probably feels super agile compared to a long heavy ‘Busa!

    I have no idea how a motorbike can tow another motorbike.

    I do love that sump guard though, and the colour of it is fab too!

    @whitearrow22 I hope you enjoying your vit. see you about on it!


    @joness7
    it like @SpeedHoles said but with the adage of towing this stupid drag bike about!

    Busa

    To save weight we have only a very small amount of cooling on them, so we have to tow them to the line and back from the top of the strip. I don’t have a picture of that but just think a rope connecting the pair of them!

    Plus @SpeedHoles  “Looks like a fun excuse to get a cool bike” 100% spot on! had to justify the third bike to the wife! lol


    @Vanessa
    Bike can tow allsorts, and your right about the colour, need to find the code for getting the spring done!

    Yes mate, I’m sure we’ll see each other about. I like the decat pipe, which one did you go for? I’ve got a Mivv one on the way but I don’t think it has the bracket in the middle. 😊

    @WhiteArrow22 I did a bit of looking about, found an KTM RC390 pipe would fit it. Bought one off ebay for £50 and it was perfect. Love the sound that it makes along side the K&N. Its given the bike a bit more pep!
