If you thought that the MTT Y2k Turbine Superbike with its 320 bhp turboshaft engine to be the most extreme two wheeler on the planet, then wait for its big brother the MTT 420R. The Y2K, with its Rolls Royce Allision Model 250 turbine packs a furious performance. The latest bike from MTT is even more mental with its Rolls Royce C20-B gas turbine which produces 420 bhp of pure insanity. The superbike can reach a top speed of 420 kph and before you drop your jaw, the bike is declared street legal in America! The turbine, instead of using the thrust to impart motion, rotates a shaft which is connected to the rear wheel via a two speed gearbox just like the Y2K. MTT says it is right now working on making the bike street legal in Europe too. The bike’s aerodynamics is still being tweaked in the wind tunnel but the company has released an image and announced that the final design would be more or less the same. The gas tubine can also run on diesel or Jet A1 type aviation fuel. With so much of power on tap, the new MTT 420R Turbine Superbike emerges as the meanest two wheeled machine on the planet.
