    As Hobbit says, a Supercharger is an expensive belt driven affair which requires top end mods to keep engine from self destructing and quite expensive, hence the big push in the 80's for Turbochargers which used impeller in the exhaust to spin at extremely high speeds to pressurize intake, at a much lower buyin price. Some bikes you will recall came out with them before safety concerns put a damper on the fun. :s

    Also the longevity of motor, turbo mechanicals came into question as did the dreaded lag between rolling on the throttle to pinning your ears back acceleration was a matter of seconds, proved to be it's undoing. But rush was similar to the "cammy" rush of older triples and inline four metrics back in the day...very nice indeed! :D
