The fastest motorcycle in the world Dodge Tomahawk
It's called the Dodge Tomahawk and it has a monstrous ten-cylinder engine. The unit has a displacement of 8,3 liters and is borrowed from the sports car Dodge Viper SRT10. Its capacity is 500 horsepower.
The design of the motorcycle is double. It has two 20-inch front and rear tires and can reach a top speed of 560 km / h. It weighs 680 kilograms and has a two-speed manual transmission.
However, no one has yet decided to test in practice whether the Dodge Tomahawk will be able to increase its speed over 500 km / h. Dodge, which was under the umbrella of DaimlerChrysler AG at the time, produces nine of these motorcycles, each over 55 years old.
This was the case in the period 2003-2006. There were five Dodge Viper SRT10 sports cars available at the time. However, despite the colossal amount, all Dodge Tomahawk motorcycles are sold out, and today they are mostly in private collections, and the price is their price.
As you know, most motorcyclists are ardent supporters of high speeds.
Therefore, in recent years, motorcycle manufacturers have engaged in a dizzying race to develop and produce the fastest and safest motorcycles.
For fans of roaring engines, powerful cars and extreme speeds, today we present the 10 fastest motorcycles in the world.
