The fastest production motorcycle in the world, Asphaltfigters Stormbringer, comes from Germany and can accelerate from 0 to 300 km/h in only 13.9 seconds. And yes, it’s street legal!
Powered by an inline-four with 16 valves, the thing benefits of no less than 220 hp. Furthermore, at speeds in excess of 180 km/h, the engine can develop as much as 280 hp thanks to the performance admission system, which ‘pushes’ air directly into the engine above that speed. This function is limited to high speeds only because of traction problems and it only kicks in for short periods of time. It sounds suicidal to us, but the company will produce this in a limited series at their plant in Aalen, Germany.
Each Asphaltfighters Stormbringer has a starting price of €57.500 ($86,117), weighs 195 kg with a tank full of gas and comes with a color-matched protection suit with carbon fiber parts and a helmet made of Kevlar. The suspension, riding position and all the commands are modified in each case according to the dimensions and weight of the pilot.
The Germans say it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 6.5 seconds and from 0 to 300 km/h in 13.9 seconds, while the top speed exceeds 320 km/h. The Bikerbox engine revs to as much as 13.700 rpm, maximum power being delivered at 13.500 rpm.
