A pair of the most powerful bikes equipped with automotive enginesMarch 25, 2019
Some motorcyclists lack power in their iron horses. Not enough so that they are ready to equip them with motors from cars and turn them into real road monsters.
One of these “horses” – Aurora V8 Hellfire OZ26, created by an Australian engineer and former racer Vincent Messina. He was not satisfied with the existing factory models from Suzuki and Kawasaki, so he improved the “hellish” motorcycle to his taste by installing a 2,575-cubic V8 engine.
Such a power unit generates power 417 hp. at 9,500 rpm, and 319 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. Its maximum speed is 340 km / h and its weight is 265 kg.
Another motorcycle – the Dodge Tomahawk V10 – produced the Dodge itself, and its performance is even greater than that of the Hellfire. V10 from the sports car Dodge Viper acts as the power unit. Its power is 500 hp. and it can accelerate to 675 km / h.
Power capacity, but as recognized by the owners of such a motorcycle in operation, it is quite demanding, especially to the quality of gasoline and service. In addition, a 10-liter fuel tank severely limits the capabilities of the bike. All these “Tomahawks” were released and successfully sold ten copies, each of which cost $ 550,000. They were all assembled by hand.
