But The Tomahawk could cross 0 to 60 in just 2.5 seconds. Now you are like, "WOW!" , but wait a minute we are sorry to say you but all these speed-related talks are just a mere predictions and the top speeds are not even tested yet. Because There is no such prove of the top speed of this bike so we can't say anything about the speed. These top speed talks are the beliefs of the motorcycling and the automotive media.
The David Elshoff - Dodge spokesman once said that this bike would be taken for a run at Bonneville Speedway (which is a very popular place for motorsports and noted as the venue for numerous speed records). But, no such attempt was never made. There is no one in the world to be known for riding Tomahawk at its top speed i.e 300 to 420 mph. The top speed known on which the Tomahawk is driven is not more than 100 mph (160 km/hr). Yes! you just read it right. The top speed on which Tomahawk has ridden is only 100 mph.

Now, let's talk about the ENGINE. Tomahawk is powered by 8.3 litre v10 engine with 500 hp. It has 2 Speed Manual transmission. And according to all these features, the top speed was determined. The Tomahawk attracted significant press and industry attention for its striking design, its use of large capacity 10-cylinder automobile engine and 4 close coupled wheels. What? wait a minute! A bike with four wheels. Yes! also this was another great feature which makes the Tomahawk different from other bikes.
Tomahawk is the concept running vehicle. The Design and Fabrication process took place in six months. The Tomahawk has an independent suspension on all four wheels designed to allow the rider to countersteer and lean into a turn like a tilting three-wheeler. There is very little lock-to-lock steering range, only about 20° on either side of the centre. So, turning radius of Tomahawk is large.
The rider can engage a rear suspension lock which hydraulically holds the two wheels in relative position, letting vehicle stand on its own without using a single stand. The Dodge Tomahawk Was only one in number. There are total 9 replicas of Tomahawk each with a price tag of $555,000. WOW! what were the features of this bike. This is my DREAM BIG.
