When speaking of excess power as it relates to motorcycles, the Y2K produced by Marine Turbine Technologies has to be the king. The Y2K is the fastest motorcycle ever to enter production. The reason for the blistering speed and raw power was a gas turbine engine usually used in Bell Jet Ranger helicopters powered the Y2K.
The Y2K was the first jet-powered vehicle legally able to operate on public roads. The price of the Y2K was north of $150,000 and though it didn’t enter mass production there was enough demand to justify limited production.

A Week with the Moto Guzzi California Vintage Street Cred without the “wannabe” Moto Guzzi has more “cruiser street cred” than most people give it credit for. They’ve been around continuously since 1921; longer than anyone but Harley Davidson. But for Harley Davidson, Guzzi’s been building cruisers longer than anyone els – their first cruiser in the incarnation you see above coming out in 1967 with the V700. Guzzi has always liked building “big” bikes, but we must adjust scale. Italy, which was Guzzi’s biggest market for most of it’s life, had production street bikes with less than 100cc for decades – a bike above 300cc was considered “big”.
Guzzi was at the top of the heap early on, with production 500cc bikes that were reliable and sporting. The 500cc Falcone of the 50s is an excellent example of this, a bike with incredible reliability, to the point where an American Guzzi Club member is an original owner of two, both ridden on close to a daily basis for more than 50 years! Guzzi builds cruisers, and they have built them for a long, long time. This is no late-comer, me-too, bandwagon cruiser, built to exploit a market niche that came about from Harley-Davidson’s renaissance. Moto Guzzi toughed it out for years when companies with better resources and larger dealer networks walked all over them.
Faster Than a Speeding Bullet: Glenn H. Curtiss
“The fastest man in the world…bullets are the only rivals of Glenn H. Curtiss of Hammondsport.” – 1907 newspaper headline
Wearing a leather cap, a well-manicured moustache and a steely gaze Glenn Hammond Curtiss stares out of a time-worn black and white postcard-like photo. In the background frothy waves plash upon a beach, the very hard packed sands upon which his experimental V-8 powered motorcycle would transport him into the history books as “The Fastest Man in the World.” The day was Thursday January 24, the year 1907; the place, Ormond Beach on the east coast of Florida. The record… 136.3 mph, a land speed record that would stand for eleven years and then only surpassed by an automobile. It would not be until 1930 that a motorcycle would best Glenn Curtiss’s feat of daring-do and mechanical design.
