@Ironwolf

no afterburners - helicopter engines are turboshafts and they don't have afterburners at all, only turbojet/turbofans do and that too not all . Turbines idle fine , thought rather highish around 6000rpm . Trouble with turbine engines is they're very inefficient at idle/low throttle settings . Commercial aircraft are known to burn 1000s of litres just from startup to takeoff alone .

I just dont understand it.to my knowledge One Kilo Litre of airline/turbine fuel is around 4000INR (i read it in NEWS PAPERS few weeks back approx) which means according to your logic they burn a whopping 40Lakhs INR of fuel.

THEY WILL doom with the take off price leave alone the flight,operations & landing one.

1 kilolitre = 1000 litres . So 1 kilolitre for INR 4000 amounts to Rs 4 per litre .I thought ATF was closer to INR 18 per litre ?

Even if an aircraft burns 20000 litres of ATF upto take off , it mounts up to INR 80000 , a fraction of your 40 lac !

Default Mtt Y2k

An MTT Y2K Turbine Superbike powered by a Rolls-Royce Jet engine is supposedly enroute to India. It'll most likely end up in a particular garage off Mumbai.

This photo was uploaded by VIVA Motorsports, the company famous for wrapping India's only Lamborghini Gallardo SuperTrofeo Stradale, Modding the Matte Black Aventador and the GPower M5.

It sound like strome, I have to wash my car after this bike passed by.

i dont thing it is Dhoni. And do not try to reveal identity of this person if he is from virar. Not because of Teambhp Rule.

MTT is readying a successor to the Y2K, with 420 bhp with capability of running 440 kmph (if only they could find a rider to pull off the stunt). Image:

The MTT Y2K was in Dadar for this weekend with a friend. Unfortunately could only see it getting back on a trailer to leave for its home in Virar once more.

The Y2K's presence has been confirmed at this years 'The Valley Run' at Aamby Valley. The first time this beast will be able to showcase its true abilities.

Attaching a photo of the bike when in Dadar.
