Honestly... this is absolutely insane! British bike builder Allen Millyard has built his biggest, baddest machine yet... a 500hp monster, powered by a V10 Dodge Viper engine.
That's right, an 8-litre V10 Viper engine from a Dodge Viper car.
Holy crap! Which is exactly what will happen in your pants when you crack the throttle! It may be over a month old, but here's what the folks at coolthings.com think.
Here's a couple of videos of the bike in action. Sadly no burn out.
This is Allen Millyard's response to the article (10/02/09) by coolthings.com.
"The Millyard Viper bike passed the UK 2009 Motorcycle Single Vehicle Approval test with a 100% pass, the brakes scored one of the highest readings on the rolling road and the DVLA issued me a 2009 plate and new vehicle status. The chassis is over engineered and probably 5 times stronger that is actually required. I am currently testing its performance with the Motor Cycle News and have taken it to over 160 mpg and 60 to 130mph took 7 sec’s at only half throttle. The bike goes round corners very well and I have worn the tyres right up to the edge. I have covered 400 road miles so far in all traffic condition and will be out on the bike again this week end. The tank has a range of 200 miles at legal road speeds."
Now lets not forget about the Dodge built Tomahawk. It also uses a Viper V10 engine, but unlike Allen's bike... it's not a great handling machine and will more than likely never be made available for sale.
Allen posted this update (11/03/09): The Viper bike hit 331kmp. F*%k! However because it's not a production motorcycle, it doesn't beat the MV Agusta F4 1078 RR 312.
And that means, the Agusta is still the fastest production bike in the world. In sixth gear it consistently hit 312kmp.
Another f*&k moment. Oh I can't forget... it's also been dubbed one of the most beautiful.
Don't matter how pretty it is, at 312kmp they'll need to use dental records to identify the body that was riding it when it slammed into that stalled car on the side of the road.
