The world’s weirdest monster motorcycles

I hold my hands up here, I am not a fan of motorbikes at all, I just find them too loud, too scary and overall just dangerous in every way! But maybe I am judging a book by its cover after all these days motorbikes are very safe and the safety laws you have to follow to ride them are second to none! Maybe it is just the look of these powerful bikes that I don’t like, maybe if they were a bit nerdier I would find them more amazing…
#1. Australia’s monster motorbike from hell
Proving once again that it is always easier to tear things apart than it is to build them is the Australian monster, as seen above. The builder, Ray Baumann, says that “this is a way of taking a bit more care,” if you can believe that. You see, his previous job was as a stunt driver. He claims that it is much safer riding this monster bike crushing cars than it was to jump them on a much smaller machine. Weighing in at 13 tons and standing about 10 feet tall, the monster doesn’t appear to have any suspension travel at all. The frame appears to be an upside-down ladder design, with wheels and tires from Caterpillar. What does it take to move this maxi-machine? A Detroit Diesel engine hooked to a 6-speed Allison automatic transmission.
#2. Tallest rideable motorcycle
When you are looking for a great attraction to gather crowds at all types of events, few things will capture attention like this monster cycle, The World’s Tallest Ride-able Motorcycle.
Gregory Dunham from the USA has constructed the worlds tallest ride-able motorcycle that is 11’, 3” (3.429 m) tall to the top of handlebars, 20’ 4” (6.187 m) long and weighs 6,500 lb (2.948 tons). It is powered by a 502 cu in (8.2 litre) V8 engine and has tires that are 74 in (1.88 m) tall. This monster needs all 500Hp engine power yoked to 2-speed transmission to make it move. And move it does – Dunham claims the big boy will rumble to a terminal velocity of 65 mph (with an economy of 6 miles per gallon), which must be make for one hell of an interesting sensation. Dunham built the bike over three years at a cost of $300,000.
#3. Longest motorcycle
Self-confessed nutcase Colin Furze – who has previously built his own DIY wall of death – has unveiled his latest project… a motorcycle longer than a double decker bus.
29 year-old Furze built the 14.26 metre long motorcycle in an attempt to break the current world record of 9.6 metres. The contraption was built from two 50cc Honda Sky mopeds and aluminium trellis.
To break the record Furze not only had to build the bike but he also had to ride it a minimum of 100 metres, which he did with ease.
#4. Tower trike
SRK Cycles’ Tower Trike is currently the world’s largest motorcycle, and some describe it as a semi-tractor-trailer merged with a bike. Weighing nearly 11,000-pounds, it’s powered by a twin charged (turbocharged + supercharged) diesel engine generating 335 hp and 1,110 lb-ft of torque. There’s a 200-pound metal cross on the back as a design choice, but doubles as a roll bar in case of an accident. One caveat: it’ll set you back $90,000 to get your hands on this beast.
Despite how large it is, this motorcycle is fully street legal because it has functional mirrors, headlights, indicators, and most importantly, seat belts. The driver operates the gas and brake pedals on the right side of the floorboard. Let’s just say that if something were to actually happen on the road, this bike would most certainly fare better than its standard-sized counterparts.
#5. The TMC dumont: motorcycle with airplane engine
When you’re a retired Formula One driver, what else can you do in your free time except build mind-bending concept motorcycles? In the case of Tarso Marques of Brazil, that’s exactly what he’s doing with the insane TMC Dumont motorcycle.
Yes, it’s still a concept so, no, you can’t drive it yet. In fact, you might be wondering how it even works because the construction shouldn’t make sense in real life.
This hub-less bike swaps a traditional car engine for a 1960s Rolls-Royce aircraft engine, creating an absolutely sick design with a body aesthetic that is futuristic, svelt, and should definitely be in the next 007 movie.
The aircraft engine is positioned where a standard motorcycle engine and fuel tank would be, but takes up an enormous amount of space. Basically, as much as a full frame, radiator —the works. The massive 36-inch wheels are essentially spoke-less and completely open in the center, so with the 300-horsepower engine, we’re hoping the brake disk and caliper have something to hold on to … because we can’t see it.
