With a mere glance at the most powerful of these machines, you can almost feel the rush of adrenaline pumping through your veins. So which models will have you cruising through the streets like the champion you are? Check out the following 5 fastest motorbikes in the world:
Apparently not only the car, dubbed the world’s fastest, This is Tomahawk, the world’s fastest motorcycle, equipped with 8200 cc engine capacity. Chrysler, the creator of Tomahawk uses the basic technology Viper V-10, and the powerful 500 hp engine with four wheels. With the original concept and nine replicas valued at $ 555,000 per unit, this bike is sold through Neiman Marcus. Unfortunately, the Chrysler produces a super bike is just as “Promotional displays” However this motorcycle can be ridden. This is fastest motorcycle in the world.
Engine: 10-cylinder 90-degree V-type
Max Speed: 350 miles per hour (560 km / h)
Power: 500 horsepower (370 kW) @ 5600 rpm (45 kW / L)
Transmission: 2-speed manual
Price of U.S. $ 555,000
As expected, power comes in at 200 horsepower, courtesy of a modified version of KTM’s 1,195-cc V-twin engine. The chassis is made up of steel, titanium and carbon fiber, with a seat height of about 28 inches. Its wheelbase, at about 65 inches, is a full 10 inches longer than a real street-legal superbike, and its front end is raked way out in front with a 19-inch wheel. Those dimensions mean we shouldn’t expect much racetrack prowess, unless its rider is only planning on going in a straight line. Indeed, with a claimed dry weight of under 400 pounds, the Lotus Motorcycles C-01 ought to be mighty quick down the quarter mile.
Mission R bike
The Mission R features Öhlins suspension, Marchesini forged aluminum wheels and a fully-adjustable braking system along with a choice of three battery packages; 12kWh, 15kWh, or 17kWh with the latter offering 220km of combined range and a charge time of around one hour.
Misson RS bikes will be limited to a production run of just 40, with each featuring carbon-fibre wheels and Öhlins forks with the 17kWh battery pack being the only option.
Revealed in June, the new Mission range is now on sale in the US, priced from US$29,990 plus on-roads (AU$32,248) for the Mission R, rising to US$72,499 plus on-roads (AU$77,956) for the Mission RS with optional “GP pack”.
By blending efficiency, power and complete independence from fossil fuels, the creative minds behind this exquisite concept managed to create a near-perfect vehicle that would get you from A to B in utmost style. The Tryton MM2 is powered by a highly efficient battery that ensures a range of 132 miles on a single charge. Furthermore, a complete charging cycle only requires about 2.5 hours to be complete, and it can be done using any 110-volt outlet.
Built using a carbon-fiber frame and thermoplastic body panels, this bike tips the scales at just 215lbs, which is probably why it can perform a 0-60 sprint in just 4.4 seconds, while its maximum top speed is an impressive 160mph.
Confederate X132 Hellcat
Just as their name suggests, Confederate doesn’t operate like most motorcycle companies: the Birmingham, Alabama-based builder approaches manufacturing with a bleeding edge attitude toward design, creating bold, original bikes that visually redefine what most people consider two-wheeled motorized transportation.
The last Confederate I reviewed was the Black Flag, and the $80,000 power cruiser was a head-swiveling, ear-pricking bruiser of a bike. How does Confederate’s new $54,450 Hellcat X132 cover new ground while coming in at a significantly lower (yet still pricey) pricepoint? Keep reading for the answers.
