Jay Leno already has one so maybe this one is for you, it’s a 2002 Y2K MTT Turbine Powered Superbike. The FAA requires turbines that power aircraft to be replaced after a certain number of hours, even though they are perfectly fine, so the guys at Marine Turbine Technologies wondered what they could do with these retired engines and as many of you know, they designed a road legal motorcycle around what has to be the most outrageous powerplant possible. The engines are refurbished, they come with an extended warranty and in this configuration, produce 420 Horsepower. If you want the fastest motorcycle on your block, or anyone else’s block, this is it.
This particular unit is owned by Ted Mclntyre, the owner of Marine Turbine Technologies. It will be sold on the factory MSO. It’s one of only 17 ever made. The bike has 420 horsepower, 500 foot pounds of torque and is equipped with an enhanced cooling system. It has a 2 speed automatic transmission, disc brakes with Brembo calipers, Pirelli tires, Ohlins suspension, pretty much all of the things you would expect of a bike with an asking price of $125,000.
Is it practical? Don’t be silly. Is it fun? I would certainly think so. If you have everything else you need and 125 thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, here’s your bike. Check it out, it’s on eBay.
