A Rolls Royce Viper Turbojet aircraft Jet Engine provides the power and although details on the official site are a bit sketchy the power mad Australians have installed an after burner which boost the output by a further 1200hp.

The project has now been running for about 5 years and as far as we are aware holds the unofficial record for the worlds most powerful motorcycle.But lets not foget, this isn't the first time the Aussies have gone to extreme lengths on their motorcycle tuning.

dude i think that's a fake picture. There's no way in my mind a motorcycle, equiped with a 3800hp engine can create all that flame and thrust, and NOT move. In the picture's the bike and the driver is stand still, with flames and smoke spewing out like crazy!?!?!? There's no chance in hell two wheels with the best brakes in the world could hold back 3800hp pushing a motorcycle. Atleast, this is what i speculate.

Mind you there is that tiny ramp at the front, but a tiny ramp holding back all that power? Nah Lols

Was never big on insanely high powered bikes (by that I mean bikes like the one with the SRT10 engine in it and the drag bikes).
