This could probably be the most expensive popcorn making machine to date. The owner of this Suzuki Hayabusa, has shown how one can pop corn in the exhaust of a superbike bike.
The urge to eat some popcorn while watching a movie, stirred up the enthusiasm of the owner of this Suzuki Hayabusa. He goes into his garage and revs up the red colored Hayabusa and stuffs some corn kernels into the exhaust while he is being watched by eager children waiting to grab some popcorn.
This is not the stock exhaust of the Hayabusa bike but an aftermarket unit from Akrapovic. For a start nothing happens as the temperature is too low. Then as temperatures rise, the popped corn emerges from the exhaust and falls to the ground. The slow start is followed by a rain of popcorns as the temperatures rise, thus proving a point to the owner that the Hayabusa is of more use than one. Video credit Turbo Xtreme on Youtube.
It is not recommended that these popcorns are eaten, especially by the children present; for hygienic reasons. It is advised to use more conventional and hygienic ways of popping corn.
