330 hp and 540 lbs?! That's insanity....... amazing, incredible Aussie insanity.....

thats a decent power to weight ratio considering the 883 Sportster weighs about the same but it only make 15% as much power.

Plenty more to come. It's running stock standard '09 R1 pistons and cams and compression. He's saying he can confidently take it to 400hp reliably.
Just ask for that option when you make your order and hand over the US$188,000. (No doubt Jay Leno has already placed his order....)

I can see it as a monument to internal combustion, but that's it. 300 HP with a standard sportbike tire means you can't put any more power down than a standard sportbike. Do that without TC and it'll be shiny-side down in no time.

5 valve heads? Yamaha already showed that was overkill. How long does it take to adjust 40 valves?

Sorry, not for me even if I could easily afford it.

Neat, but better off in a small sports car IMO. Or slap two together and have a 4 liter V16!

Oh that sounds sweet, thanks for the video eatpasta.

I'm with Rodan and SteelJM1, I'd love to put that into a light four wheeled vehicle.
That's about the only way I could use even a fraction of the HP.

Indeed. That mill belongs in something like a KTM Xbow, Ariel Atom, Radical, Lotus Elise, etc.

Something like an Ariel Atom

Or a Polaris Slingshot.

For the budget minded (not that this engine is the least bit budget minded ) there's always the Exocet...

http://exomotive.com/exocet/

This engine is similar to the V8s out there that use Hayabusa heads on a bespoke block for 400-500hp. One of them was used in the V8 Atom. Motors run ~$25k...

I don't think this bike would have that much of an advantage over an R1 for practical riding. How do you lay down 300+hp through a small contact patch with the road. Without a fat rear tire and a wheelie bar you may not get the benefit unless you're doing 100mph roll-ons.
