World’s Fastest Bike – The Tomahawk


The Tomahawk

This is 8200cc Monster of a Bike. It's like riding a 2-wheeled Train Engine.

The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with four wheels beneath it.
Chrysler will be selling the original Tomahawk concept and nine replicas through Neiman Marcus, for up to $555,000 each. The motorcycles cannot be licensed, so they cannot be legally driven on public roads. A Chrysler spokesman told Reuters they were meant as rolling sculptures.

Rumors had the Tomahawk selling for under $200,000, most likely at a loss or breakeven price, for publicity purposes – but still fully drivable. Wolfgang Bernhard, Chrysler's not particularly respected first mate, was said to be enthusiastic about that project, so much so that hundreds were projected to be built at under $200,000 each. They reportedly cost Chrysler over $100,000 to build (admittedly the work is outsourced).

The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60 miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of nearly 400 mph. Each pair of wheels is separated by a few inches and each wheel has an independent suspension. Bernhard said four wheels were necessary to handle the power from the engine.

The Tomahawk remains on display at auto shows – though well out of reach of the general public, elevated on a special display.

    Yes this is one cool project, that they actually sold some to the public. But… This is s showpiece and nothing else. The performance is estimations and probably never tested. If I remember correctly the top speed estimation is based on the gearing of the transmission and disregarding aerodynamic drag. The Aerodynamic drag is the main limitation on top speed for any bike. And just to nail the coffin the power to weight ration is not that great, when comparing to sport bikes. Dodge Tomahawk 370kW 680 kg + 75kg rider ~= 0.49 kw/ kg BMW S1000RR 144 kW 208kg(wet weight) + 75kg rider ~= 0.51 kW / kg

    tltr: I do not like the Tomahawk

    Not even close to fastest. It’s not fast, it’s not quick, it’s not to be ridden. It’s show trash. Still cool though.


    Is this a good first bike? My only concern is the requirement for premium gas. I’m not made of money

    I think it’d be a good bike for American roads.


    This was released in 2003. Just saying.


    And, if I’m not mistaken, the concept and all the publicity stuff was released well before that. I seem to remember discussing this bike with friends I haven’t seen since 2001.


    2 Speed Gears, V10, 500 bhp, 4 wheels, AWD, 0 to warp in 2.5 secs, top speed 300+ MPH..

    What should we call the brave person who would drive this tank?


    … the Stig’s motorbiking cousin.


    There is no Stig.


    Does that thing even have a frame or is it just a massive engine with wheels mounted at each end? Also with 4 wheels can it technically be considered a bike?

    I’d love to take that thing round the track a few times to see what it feels like. Found a video of it in action.


    First time I’ve seen a video of a bike without showing a single corner. Colour me cynical, but I don’t believe it can lean and keep all the tyres on the road.


    That’s exactly what I was thinking… and I watched several videos trying to get a single shot of it leaned even a little bit. Nothing but dead straight every time. I don’t think it can turn at speed.


    when they built a couple for collectors (jay leno and the like) they delivered them without drive chains, so I guess the manufacturers share your confidence.


    That does seem like a likely scenario.

    • can you imagine trying to hustle this thing up a canyon road, or for that matter , any road with even the slightest curve ? i cant, but that point is moot , as i will never be able to own one

  2. एक आदमी बड़ा दुखी था।

    एक दोस्त ने उससे पूछा- क्यों टेंशन में हो?

    आदमी- यार मैंने एक दोस्त को दो लाख रुपये उधार दिये थे, प्लास्टिक सर्जरी कराने के लिए। अब साले को पहचान ही नहीं पा रहा हूं।

  3. yeah,its cool, but if i doesnt fall over when left on its wheels by itself, then to me it aint a motorcycle. its a lean thing and trikes, sidehacks, and this thing dont got that that lean thing, so therefor not true bikes
