If you want speed: a blackbird (or so many others) is much better.

Most people who get an x11 buy it for other reasons I think, a super fast bike with only 5 speeds seems kinda weird.

I'm sure there are people who did all this, but I doubt very much if they really needed the extra power.

I don't know if a turbo is even any good on a motorcyle, except for a drag race, imagine your turbo kicks in when you're flat in a corner...

If you want a crazy and probably cheaper alternative to all that stuff: NOS.  And if you have the guts to use it: respect!
