What do you think it would cost to put a similar system on a Kawasaki concours 1400? Something allowing it to run up in the 200-210mph range. I would guess it would need similar hp to get to the 2 mark. I have gotten there with far less.

the hard part on a blower is getting a good drive for it - it requires some sort of drive off the crank etc.

with a turbo you don't really need any bike specific parts that can't be easily fabricated, with the blower you probably need to do a decent amount of machining too. I'd expect turbo to be doable for cheaper, downside is there's more plumbing.

The supercharger works all the time, it is easy to ride on the road. It requires more manufacturing parts for assembly.
