Monkey bikes have never been expensive, breathtaking and neither the less record braking machines, but they do fit in a category of their own and, although never heard before, the words “World’s fastest monkey bike” have lead nine-time Dakar competitor Ivo Kastan to building what’s most likely the fastest ever monkey bike.
The Czech motorcycle enthusiast will take his specially tuned Honda monkey bike at Bonneville later this month, where it plans to take the small blast up to speeds of more than 106mph, confirming the “fastest ever” supposition and also setting a new record for the naked 175cc four-stroke class.
What’s left to say is that the bike features no rear suspension whatsoever, meaning that it can provide a very harsh ride. We wish Ivo Kastan the best of luck for his attempt!
