Default 1000 BHP Monster

Squeeze a massive 8.2 litre supercharged V8 monster truck engine with as much power as a Bugatti Veyron into a motorcycle and you have the Rapom V8.... The Rapom V8 1000 bhp motorcycle - gizmag Article

1000 bhp in a car is obscene!
1000 bhp in a bike is AMERICAN!!!

All they like is BIG numbers!!

Yup...Rapom is actually Mopar spelt backwards...the latter being the performance company for Dodge & Chrysler.

Thiis bike produces upto 1200 hp and is completely road legal.

Heat? Wouldnt sitting on this bike while it is running, be hot as *hell* ? To compare, a mere Maruti 800's bonnet feels plenty hot after an extended drive.

I wouldn't want to be riding those bikes. as mentioned heat and several factors may render someone incapable of certain activities.

No offenses to anyone...

It would take a real jerk to drop the Tomahawk.

And secondly, The Rapom V8 produces at least 700 horses more than the Tomy...Guess we all know the result of a drag then?

If it's able to put all the horses to the wheel; If the the tyres dont shred or burst; If the rider doesnt has his b4lls boiled off;
Frankly, I think it's just a "Why not" kinda project; not really meant to run anywhere.
