• Acabion GTBO, the rocket motorcycle

    Acabion GTBO

If you’re a speed junkie, you will probably love this enclosed motorcycle. How fast does it go? How does 0 to 258 mph in 19 seconds sound? Without a governor it tops out at 300 mph, and even with that governor it can still hit 265 mph.

At high speeds the Acabion GTBO is tremendeously effective. This is the influence of its marvellous aerodynamic quality. Fuelconsumption at 200 km/h is three times lower in comparison to a compact diesel car and at 400 km/h it is 10 times lower compared to a supersportscar. Even at 600 km/h the Acabion is still efficient, just that there is nothing comparable around on todays roads. Nevertheless: the Acabion can handle stop and go quite as easy as high speeds or it can operate at any speeds of 10, 20 or 30 km/h. And AGAIN it is much more effective than even a compact car. This is the influence of its low weight. So: No matter if slow or fast, the Acabion outranges efficiency of cars in every aspect of day to day traffic.

What a pity that not too many people will be able to hurtle down the road in one of these, as they only plan on building 26 of them and then selling them for the low, low price of $720,000.
