MTT Turbine Superbike

the distant handle-bars will have you stretched out in that go-fast position... no cruising allowed here!

As the leaders in turbine innovation, MTT has produced the ultimate in high performance machines: The MTT Turbine SUPERBIKE. The critically acclaimed SUPERBIKE is the world's first turbine powered street legal motorcycle in its class, and has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the "Most Powerful Motorcycle Ever to Enter Series Production" and the "Most Expensive Production Motorcycle". Powered by a Rolls Royce Allison gas turbine engine, the SUPERBIKE has demonstrated over 300 hp and 425 ft/lbs of torque on the Dyno Jet 200, and has been clocked at a record-breaking 227 mph (365 kph).

Representing the latest in engineering technology, the bike features carbon fiber fairings, a rear mounted camera with LCD color display, forward- and rear-looking radar detector with laser scrambler, one touch "Smart Start" ignition, and more. The MTT Turbine SUPERBIKE is starring in the Warner Brothers movie "TORQUE", and Men's Journal lists

the bike as one the most "awe-inspiring, innovative, and otherwise amazing designs" in their feature article "Perfect Stuff". With production limited to five per year, it's no wonder the SUPERBIKE has become a revolution.
