Rolls-Royce the car known for its luxurious looks, power, etc. But can you imagine about a bike which come with the power of a rolls-royce ? A bike consist of a rolls-royce allison engine ? if not so, then let's talk about the wold's most powerful bike ever manufactured by MTT. And the bike is MTT Y2K - World's most powerful bike ever made.
MTT Y2K - Introduction
MTT was a leading Turbine innovation which produces majorly Airboats, Workboats, And special projects. so The MTT president Ted McIntyre once decided to add Motorcycles to its firm. The president appointed Christian Travert ( a former bike racer and custom builder) to head the project. This was a great step by MTT. because It was the First time that MTT was introducing motorbike in its firm.
Early models were powered by a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250-C18 gas turbine producing 320 hp at 52,000 rpm. Unlike some turbojet-powered motorcycles which relied on jet propulsion for thrust, the Y2K Superbike's turboshaft engine drives the rear wheel via two-speed gearbox. but The motorcycles are produced on demand and made to order for buyers.
MTT Y2K - Specification
The Turbines used in these bikes were not brand new but The turbines used in these bikes were second Hand. Now, you will say that it can affect the turbine capability. Yes! you are right but, not too much. Because the turbines were refurbished by MTT and but also extend the warranty of the turbine for every newly purchased bike.
So Representing the latest in engineering technology, the bike features carbon fiber fairings, a tubular aluminum frame containing the bike’s transmission fluids and reserve tank, a rear-mounted camera with LCD color display, Smart Start computerized ignition, and more.
