Billy Vose and the MPS/Thyen team took home the win at the PDRA Pro Extreme Motorcycle Drags at the Virginia Motorsports Park, July 28th, 2014. The motorcycle is powered by a highly modified Suzuki Hayabusa powerplant which uses a Holley Dominator EFI Electronic Control Unit. The affectionately coined, "MPS Lethal Injection” is a combination of MPS' Spyder Dry Nitrous and the Holley ECU, which controls all of the motorcycle’s functions including the data logging. “It’s the ultimate in adjustability.” Says Dan Rudd of Motorcycle Performance Specialties (MPS). “We love our Holley System. It’s the heart of our motorcycle. We've been using it for the last 3 years and have slowly been getting better and better.”
