In his time, enthusiast Allen Millyard has built-in his garage a lot of remarkable custom motorcycles, with the most famous of his projects being a bike Viper with a V10 engine.
The other day Millyard published a video dedicated to this “steel horse” on his Youtube channel. The man said that he built the monster bike back in 2009. The bike is still in his possession and on the video, he was just maintaining and preparing it for the new season.
It is interesting that most similar projects are developed only for different shows, but Viper is an exception to the rule – a man actually rides it on public roads from time to time. The mileage of the cargo motorcycle is 9,150 miles (14,725 km).
Note that in motion the bike drives an 8.0-liter V10, borrowed from the supercar Dodge Viper GTS 1995. This unit produces an impressive 500 horsepower.
Viper weighs 630 kg, of which the mentioned engine accounts for more than half of the weight – 340 kg. By the way, because of such a heavy engine, Millyard took as a basis for the bike two frames at once.
How such a mega is driven you can see in the video. During leisurely city trips the engine hardly rumbles up to 1,500 rpm, but it “pleases” pedestrians and other road users with a loud bass sound.
During tests in Bruntingthorpe, Britain, journalist Bruce Dunn was able to break 200 mph (322 km/h) on the Viper. The author of the project claims the bike can reach 270 mph (434 km/h).
