This is going to be amazing. Maybe better than this?
If I understand it right, both turbo and superchargers basically increase horsepower but forcing more air than the engine naturally draws, increasing the amount of air in each cylinder and allowing more fuel to be burnt.
However, a turbocharger works using the pressure generated by exhaust gases. This means that the turbo effect increases gradually with the build of exhaust backpressure, introducing the effect called "turbo lag".
A supercharger, however, operates via a belt connected to a driven pulley off the engine. The downside here is that it requires engine power to turn the supercharger. Because the supercharger is spun by the engine, the "boost" ( > 1 atm air pressure) provided is not dependent on backpressure, and can provide a large amount of boost at low RPM.
In theory, it could be better
than a turbocharger, since it would enhance the bike's low-end which is dramatically lacking in the 600's. I'm curious about how it would work out though, since superchargers actually sap a bunch of engine horsepower in order to spin, but should make it back up with the boost pressure.
I like NA, myself. These systems are complex enough... It would be fun to basically have walk away power from any other bike, though.
