New Motorcycle Speed Record

Fresh in from the Salt Flats at Bonneville Utah comes this staggering piece of footage of the new Land Speed Record for two wheelers of 367.382 mph.

Pilot Chris Carr and the BUB Racing team took their Streamliner Seven to the new watershed this weekend. The vehicle packs 3 liters of turbocharged CCs and produces 535 HP through its purpose-built 16-valve V4 motor.

According to Asphalt and Rubber, it’s not only the heavy horsepower and the streamlined shell that has facilitated this ridiculous velocity, but also a special firing sequence that allows for extra grip on the salty Bonneville surface.

Enjoy. But don’t try this at home.
