We saw so many bikes around the world. But there are some bikes which are unique in features and monster in true sense. Let’s have look to some of them today.
See the above picture. It looks nothing special in above bike. It seems like a toy bike. But the actual difference can be realized in the picture given below. Yes this is the world’s biggest motorcycle/bike. The bike is christened “Dream Big”.
The bike is designed by Gregory Dunham and it owns the record of world’s tallest motorcycle to ride in Guinness Book of Records. It took 3 years Dunham to make this bike. He started work in 2002 and completed in 2005 and it cost him over $ 3,00,000 (Rs. 13.5 Crores).
The bike is 20 feet 4 inch long (6.2 meters), 11 feet 3 inch (3.4 meters) tall and weighs 3 tons (2948 KG). The width of the bike is 6 feet 2 inch. The tyre size is 3 feet wide and 6 feet 6 inch tall. The bike is powered by 8200 cc engine which can produce 500 horse powers and 813 Nm of torque. It got 2 forward gears and one reverse gear. Six people can sit inside this bike. There is cage under the handlebar from where you can ride this bike. A car like steering is there through which you can operate bike’s handlebar. Talking about this bike he said that it was his dream to make world’s tallest motorcycle. Many people said that he can’t do this but he proved that you can chase your dream no matter how big it is.
There is another motorcycle which is built in Australia but I am not sure about its entry in Guinness Book of Records. The monster has been built Ray Baumann who was road train driver turn stunt jumper. It took him three years to build this bike. This bike can crush the car easily.
Hs bike thirty feet (9 meters) long, 10 feet (3 meters high) and weigh 13.6 tons (13,600 Kg) which is more than of a school bus. Its two tyres are taken from an 80 tons Caterpillar digger which are 10 feet (3 meters) high and 1 meter (3 feet) wide. It is powered by a Detroit Diesel truck engine and six speed Allison automatic gearbox. It uses two-speed Eton differential from a road train to drive a massive chain on each side.
Seems like world’s heaviest motorcycle to drive.
