You always thought that the Rocket III had the biggest engine? Or maybe the Boss Hoss was the only motorcycle with mad engine? Wrong. Here is our list of some madder engine motorcycles:

Dodge Tomahawk

The Dodge Tomahawk was a non–street legal concept vehicle introduced by Dodge at the 2003 North American International Auto Show. It had 507PS 8.3-litre V10 motor from the Dodge Viper. The engine was encased in an aluminium housing with a swingarm mounted at both sides. Tomahawk was produced and sold in very small numbers (not as street legal motorcycles).

And if you see closely, this has 4 tyres. This really was a mad mad design.

The objective of the Alfabeast was to fit the largest engine I could find, into a Harley frame, without increasing the frame cradle. The extreme custom job takes inspiration from Boss Hoss machines, but unlike them, this is powered by an Alfa Romeo V6 engine paired with a 4 speedHarley-Davidson transmission. So, it makes 156 hp from the 2.5-litre. While the power output is nothing extraordinary, you have to appreciate the efforts and skills required to do this job.

And now these guys are working on a motorcycle powered by V6 Maserati Merak engine providing 217 bhp @ 6500 rpm and 270 Nm torque @ 4500 rpm

It all started years ago, in 2009, when a series of Solidworks CAD drawings by Ian McElroy was presented for a concept bike called "Kickboxer". The idea was to create a radical, but carefully planned design with the 2.5-liter engine of a Subaru WRX.

The engine is a turbocharged EJ25 out of a second generation WRX paired with a modified Japanese two-speed automatic transmission. The Madboxer is strangely a very cool-looking machine, especially with the center steer hub and swing arms. (Know More at: https://www.marcelvanhooijdonk.com/geschiedenis-madboxer)

The Aurora V8 Hellfire produces 417 bhp from its enormous 2575cc V8 engine. (For reference, the most powerful production motorcycle today is the Kawasaki H2 which makes around 210 bhp from its supercharged 1000cc engine). But then you get 417 bhp in a motorcycle weighing just 265kg and called Hellfire. Who can say no to this? (Know more at: http://www.auroramotorcycles.com/)

Now let’s come to the weirder (yes there are some) fuel choice. Diesel. Many of us remember Royal Enfield Taurus Diesel motorcycle launched in 1993. Other than its fuel economy, it was horrible. But there are certain better options for diesel powered motorcycles. Let’s look at them-

Earlier attempts at a diesel powered motorcycle had resulted in pathetically slow, overweight and horrible-sounding bikes.

Track T 800 uses a three-cylinder turbo diesel engine used in SmartForTwo car. The turbocharged engine was paired with an in-house developed CVT transmission and BMW shaft drive in an 'adventure sport' style motorcycle chassis.

This is world’s first turbo-diesel motorcycle. A parallel twin-cylinder turbo diesel engine with two meshed counter-rotating crankshafts. It delivers a 112 hp and equally impressive 133 ft-lbs of torque. The motorcycle comes equipped with double telescopic fork, Brembo brakes, and a 6-speed cassette transmission. All of this at a (relatively) low weight of 295 kg. (know more at : https://www.neander-motors.com/en/motoren/motorcycle/)

And before you dismiss all these as fantasies or out of reach of common people like us, do you know that as early as 2014, our own Hero MotoCorp had shown off their own RNT – Diesel Concept Bike. To read the news, click here.

Since this is a concept bike, all the figures mentioned are claimed. Power was to be from a high torque 150cc diesel, with optional turbocharger generating 13.5 hp and 26 ft-lbs of torque. You could add an option of a 1.3 hp hub electric motor in the front wheel which is powered by an electric battery pack, to give the rider a unique two-wheel drive option. While it was not great to look at, the wide flat loading surfaces with strap bars, as well as multi-use folding side racks, a large comfortable seat and spacious footboards would had made it a practical choice.
