It's an "early" 'Busa speedo on a later bike; different calibration (or vicey-versey - mem'ry here) - I've read the debunking of this one before. Probably an "honest" 185-190mph, so the debunker sez................

With a blower the 'Busa speed record is 259.393mph at Bonneville. That's perfect conditions and a heck of a long run up. No way is any uncharged motorcycle going to go that fast. Notice that the bike in the video is wheelieing between 70 and 140mph and we're to believe that the bike would smoothly put its front wheel on the ground at a spin rate of less that 70mph while the bike has accelerated to 140mph?

It's a good trick though. Probably get a lot of suckers on youtube or wherever else idiots congregate.
