MTT Y2K Superbike

4, MTT Y2K Superbike
Price: $ 1,75,000 (Rs 96 lakh)

If a normal bike builder wanted to create a fast bike he would mostly go in for a twin-cylinder or an in-line four engine and tune its nuts out to extract as much power from the mill as he can. But Ted McIntyre of Marine Turbine Technologies thinks slightly differently. Instead of plonking a normal internal combustion engine, he installed a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 turboshaft engine from a helicopter to power his behemoth! The stock engine pumps out an astounding 324PS of power but if you want to go full bonkers, there is the Streetfighter variant with an insane power output of 426PS and a torque rating of 678Nm! All these numbers mean the Y2K boasts a top whack of 365km/h which can put many hypercars to shame. To translate all that power on the road the bike uses a 240mm Pirelli Diablo rear tyre and instead of a standard review mirror as found on all motorcycles, the Y2K employs a rear-mounted camera with LCD color display on the instrument cluster. Speed and the worlds most powerful production bike comes at a price and the Y2K commands a cool $ 1,75,000 which equates to Rs 96 lakh.
