MTT, Marine Turbine Technologies Open Marine Turbine Technologies in a new window, have already captured the imagination of many bikers with their turbine powered super-motorcycle, the MTT Y2K. Made famous by Jay Leno, just turning on the engine will set many biker's hearts pumping extra blood through the veins. Or should I say kerosene? With an incredible power (320 hp) and dazzling top speeds, the super-motorcycle is only surpassed by its price. Let's face it, even the most expensive MV Agusta will look like spare change when you outfit your motorcycle with a helicopter turbine engine.

MTT are in the process of finishing off their latest creation, a hyper-super bike (for lack of a better word). The new motorcycle will receive a Rolls-Royce C-20B gas turbine engine developing 420 hp!!! A top speed of 420 kph is expected, and you can expect also to outgun any 4 wheel cage in acceleration.

The bike is currently in windtunnel testing, but it's expected to see their first customer "fly away" mid this year. As for price... if you've gotta ask, you can't afford it. The "old" Y2K was selling in the 6 figures, with the likes of Jay Leno, the Emir of the United Arab Emirates and other very rich folks owning one, so don't be surprised to see the bike costing the same as a good sized house.

If I had one of these, I'd just be turning on and off the engine just to hear the engine spool up..... fantastic sound.
