The fastest motorcycle. Unbelievable but true
Almost a decade ago the car manufacturerDodge (America) managed to surprise the world. However, his new brainchild was not the new model of the car, but the fastest motorcycle. Despite the debut of a decade ago, the moto-miracle not only does not give up the leader's position, but to this day remains the fastest two-wheeled vehicle.
To see such a motorcycle from the window of your carit is unlikely to be possible, because for a ride on an ordinary road, it is not designed and does not even have a mass production. The previously released models are exclusive, because they are manual assembly mechanisms. Surely they are all in private collections. Nevertheless, it was this bike that none of his fellows managed to surpass in speed. Dodge Tomahawk - the fastest motorcycle in the world.
Its design is quite unusual. The motorcycle has an independent suspension for each individual wheel, and they, as front and rear, are doubled. Between the double wheels there is only a small gap of a few centimeters. This is by no means a designer thing. This design feature is simply necessary in order to be able to take the torque from a motorcycle engine whose volume is almost eight and a half liters with a power of five hundred horsepower.
The maximum declared speed thatis able to develop the fastest motorcycle - 480 kilometers per hour, although the manufacturer claims that this is not the limit. If you exclude air resistance during driving, acceleration can reach an astounding speed - more than six hundred kilometers per hour. Meanwhile ninety kilometers per hour it is able to develop in just two and a half seconds.
For all time of existence of such motorcycle wasreleased no more than a dozen models, so it is not possible to buy it. Especially since its price, which is more than half a million dollars, to put it mildly, "bites."
However, for fans of fast driving there is stillvehicle. There are in the motorcycle world today models that meet all the requirements of desperate dodgers. In addition, they are released in mass production, which means that if you have the right amount to buy such a motorcycle will not be difficult. Its cost is about two hundred thousand dollars.
So, Y2K MTT Turbine Superbike is the fastest serial motorcycle that has a gas turbine engine.
Motorcycle is allowed to ride on ordinary roads. Engine power is 320 l / force. Prior to the application on this model, such engines were used only in the aviation industry.
With a total weight of 227 kilograms, the bike is capable of speeds of just over four hundred kilometers per hour. Up to a hundred kilometers, it is freely dispersed for a second and a half.
The fastest bike of the batch production Y2KMTT Turbine Superbike can be filled with kerosene, which is used to refuel aircraft, although conventional diesel fuel is also suitable. The tank contains more than thirty liters.
A special feature is that the temperature of the exhaust gases can reach a fairly high temperature (650 ° C), so being behind the bike is highly undesirable.
The model is equipped with a video camera and laserradar detectors, which allow a motorcyclist to control the space both in front and behind the vehicle using an image that is broadcast on a liquid crystal display. When purchasing such a miracle of technology, the buyer is given the opportunity in choosing colors and seating.
In conclusion, one can not help saying that thisthe model of the motorcycle was on the pages of the famous Guinness Book of Records. The fastest motorcycle is marked as one of the most powerful, and also the most expensive serial bikes.
