This Y2K MTT Turbine Superbike. Beside the unique design, this motorbike can also go at speeds above the average which reaches 365 km / hour.

This motorcycle sport created by Marine Turbine Technologies, which is a production facility that recycles turbine engines.

Although not a manufacturer dedicated to making motorcycles, the MTT Turbine Superbike was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most powerful motorcycle ever produced.

In the engine sector, the MTT Turbine Superbike takes the DNA of the Rolls-Royce 250-C18 turboshaft engine, which is the same engine as the Bell 206A helicopter which is capable of producing 320 hp at 52,000 rpm and is channeled to a 2-speed semi-automatic transmission.

This motorbike using a helicopter engine is not the result of modification, but this motorbike has indeed been sold freely for quite some time ago.

Its name is MTT Y2K which uses the Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250-C18 turboshaft engine used in helicopters such as the Bell 206A.

This kind of engine rev will definitely make a scene in the surrounding neighborhood and will surely woke up the entire block. The engine can rotate up to 52,000 rpm.

Because it uses a helicopter engine, it is clear that the control is different from ordinary engine motors. There is no engine brake on this motorbike, so when the throttle is closed the motor can still escape.

How about the fuel consumption? It turned out to be "1:30 - 1:45" only. (1 litre : 30 Km)

As if riding a regular motorbike wasn't scary enough, MTT's best technicians thought it would be a good idea to simply frighten the rider.

Y2K's strength is to be reckoned with on all fronts and what's more, it's been more than 15 years that it still holds its record, with almost no one able to fight back.

Here are the facts about the MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K motorcycle

The first turbine powered street motorcycle

The Y2K uses a Rolls Royce Allison 250-C20 gas turbine engine. Initially, the engine was capable of producing 320 horsepower. Not enough, finally MTT managed to suppress its power so that it can produce 420 horsepower.

The Allison 250 has dozens of variants and is still used to power helicopters today. This engine gives the Y2K a top speed, claimed to be able to produce a speed of 443 km/h. Jay Leno describes it as “the hand of God pushing you from behind.”

Guinness version of the world's most expensive motorcycle

Among its many awards, the Y2K holds the Guinness record for the most expensive production motorcycle in the world at $185,000. The Y2K is made to order, to the specifications the buyer wants, and is made with premium lightweight parts.

Additionally, it has a rear-mounted LCD camera, computerized ignition, fully adjustable mono-shock hlins rear suspension and Brembo disc brakes. In other words, the best way to spend a lot of money.

Stronger version uses 240 mm rear tires

The Hayabusa was a motorcycle to beat in the 90s, with a top speed of 195 mph from a 1300cc engine that produced 173 horsepower. The Hayabusa needs a 190mm rear tire to get all that power to the ground. While the Y2K, which has more than twice the horsepower, uses 240mm rear tires.

Using automatic transmission

Part of the fun of riding a motorcycle is changing gears, but sitting behind the Y2K's handlebars leaves little room to concentrate on anything other than what's in front of the bike. By having an automatic transmission, it can reduce the death factor for Y2K drivers.

Made of lightweight material

MTT retains its Y2K with a weight of 500 pounds or about 181 kg. The bike uses 17-inch carbon fiber wheels, which can be found on the BMW S1000RR superbike.

The tubular aluminum alloy frame holding the Y2K engine is surrounded by a carbon fiber fairing. The 420 horsepower version comes with a larger swing arm and increased fuel capacity, as well as an improved cooling system.

Has a lifetime machine warranty

MTT provides a lifetime warranty provided the original owner is still alive. This guarantee can be given given that these bikes are very strong on the road, so it's probably a safe bet.
