Lady Canadian rider, Trillium Muir, proudly holds “The World’s Fastest Woman on a Motorcycle” title after obtaining an ECTA-certified 239.36 mph (382.98 km/h) on her Hayabusa motorcycle at Maxton.
The twenty-eight years old record holder is based in Sudbury, Ontario
and it has been riding for only four years. Still, it beat the 234.197mph (374.72km/h) world speed record previously achieved by Leslie Porterfield at the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials in the US.
As Trillium states for FasterandFaster, she got into motorcycle land speed racing after watching such an event at Maxton NC in September 2006. Soon after that, she became the first woman ever to hit 200 mph.
Achieving such a performance implies knowing your bike, doing mechanical work and even wiring is nothing out of the ordinary for the current record holder as she states: “I rode our 2003 Suzuki Hayabusa that has a GT35R turbo from RCC turbos. The bike is also fitted with an Aims data logger, JE Pistons, Crower rods, MTC lock-up clutch, Elka shock, custom-built swingarm, RCC back cut transmission and much more. The motor and the turbocharger were built by RCC. I do most of our clutch work and have the patience for wiring. Anything that needs to be done, I can do it, and have.”
