Cool Bike : Dodge Tomahawk

Dodge Tomahawk

This one cool bike! The Dodge Tomahawk is a concept motorcycle produced by Dodge.

At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, Dodge unveiled a motorcycle with an unusual design, featuring the 500 hp (373 kW) 8.3 L V10 engine from the Dodge Viper. The motorcycle has two front wheels and two rear wheels. This is done to aid in turning and stability at high speed.

* According to the official specs 0-60 mph times have been estimated at 2.5 seconds, with a top speed of 300+ mph. But there are also reports that the top speed is 676 km/h (about 450 mph). (NOTE: These speed estimations do NOT account for wind resistance. They are gearing estimates only. A motorcycles top speed is determined by many variables, including wind resistance, driver’s position, and road conditions.) It is very unlikely that anyone will ever test the vehicle, due to safety concerns and the price of the Tomahawk itself. Dodge has expressed interest in one day taking it to the Bonneville salt flats, but as of yet has not.
