Jet powered motorcycle

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

If your 50cc pocket bike isn’t giving you that adrenaline rush you crave than consider this modest upgrade: It’s the MTT Turbine Super bike also know as the Y2K. Weighing in at about 500 lb, this jet powered motorcycle uses a Rolls Royce Allison gas turbine engine to create over 320HP and 425 ft. lb. of torque, making it the most powerful (and most expensive) production motorcycle ever! So what does all that power equate to? Well if you can hang onto the handle bars long enough it will sling you from 0 to 217mph in 14 seconds and top out at around 250mph!

Y2K superbike
The Y2K superbike may not be practical and I can only imagine that this jet powered super bike has some handling issues, considering the fact that you are sitting on a jet engine that spins at 56,000rpm. But… Anyone who is going to spend $185,000 on a bike isn’t exactly looking for practicality. Jay Leno who was one of the first owners of a MTT jet powered superbike and in the video below you can hear the crazy sound this motorcycle makes and see it in action!

The bike features carbon fiber fairings, forward and rear looking radar detector with laser scrambler, a rear mounted camera with LCD color display, one touch “Smart Start” ignition… and a death sentance ;)
