Guys,

As far as I know, that bike was a prototype made by Dodge. Yes, I know Dodge is a car company, but that bike was made by dodge and it had a viper engine in it at the time..

I don't think Triumph ever made a bike like that..

Dude

thts the best part about this meanie

All 4 wheels have independent suspensions.. so during turning/banking, the wheels are at different levels but are in contact with the surface.

Classy funda..

The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with four wheels beneath it. The engine breathes through twin throttle bodies mounted right up front. (That's what the two round things above the front tires are).

Chrysler sold nine replicas through Neiman Marcus, for up to $555,000 each. The motorcycles cannot be legally driven on public roads. A Chrysler spokesman told Reuters they were meant as rolling sculptures - but they can probably still be driven on private roads (the rolling-sculpture comment may be designed to avoid legal liability).

The Tomahawk concept is an awesome-sounding machine; we have not driven it, as you may expect, but did see it started up and revved. Clouds of blue smoke vied for attention with the throaty rumble of the mighty V-10, and hitting the gas visibly opened the twin throttle body blades up front where the headlight would normally be. Though deeper and more rumbling than most motorcycles, it did not seem to be louder overall - just deeper and less shrill.

Rumors had the Tomahawk selling for under $200,000, most likely at a loss or breakeven price, for publicity purposes - but still fully drivable. Wolfgang Bernhard, Chrysler's first mate at introduction time, was said to be enthusiastic about that project, so much so that hundreds were projected to be built at under $200,000 each. They reportedly cost Chrysler over $100,000 to build (the work is outsourced).

The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60 miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of nearly 400 mph. Each pair of wheels is separated by a few inches and each wheel has an independent suspension. Bernhard said four wheels were necessary to handle the power from the engine.

Guys, this thread is about the Rocket III. Please stick with that. If you want to discuss another bike, think about starting another thread.

The Rocket III is not faster than a busa or a 12r. I think I'd given the supporting figures in a thread elsewhere.

And the Dodge Tomahawk is nothing but a mere concpet. It's never gonna beat the busa or 12r in terms of top speed. All you hear everywhere is, theoretically it can do this, theoretically it can do that. But have you seen a single test of it doing crazy speeds? No! That's coz it's nothign but a publicity gimmick. Nothing more than a show-piece..Anyone can fit a 1000hp engine on a chassis with 2 wheels, but can you make it go? It's for a simple reason, Aerodynamics.
In my books, the Tomahawk is all show no go. The y2k, now that is one interesting bike.
