Kawasaki H2R just not powerful enough for you?...


MTT Y2K SUPERBIKE

MTT produced not only the first turbine-powered street legal motorcycle, but also the most powerful production bike in the world: the MTT Y2K Superbike.

The first generation of Y2K’s were powered by a Rolls Royce-Allison gas turbine engine.  The power train was demonstrated at over 320 HP and 425 ft/lbs of torque on the DynoJet 200 and has been clocked at a record breaking 227 MPH.

MTT’s Y2K bike was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most expensive production motorcycle ever to go on sale and in a second award it was designated as the most powerful production motorcycle.

MTT’s later models have all the standard features of previous versions, but with a larger swing arm, Pirelli Diablo 240 rear tire, increased fuel capacity and an enhanced cooling system.  This new generation is equipped with a 420 HP turbine with approximately 500 ft/lbs of torque.
