The creators of the super manic turbine-powered Y2K superbike are back with a bigger and more “off the charts CRAZY” project. Like most manufacturers, they too felt that they can and should do better than their previous 320hp turbine-powered Y2K superbike which was built back in 2000.Just when you thought that having around 200hp on the standard road-going superbikes that are available in the current market to date, the folks over at Marine Turbine Technologies feel that bigger is always better and their next project is a BEAST.After 17 years of success with their larger than life Y2K motorcycle that produces 320hp and goes up to 227mp/h (around 365km/h), they’re turning everything up to 11 with their upcoming MTT 420RR turbine-powered monstrosity.Using a Rolls Royce Allison – 250-C20 Series Gas Turbine Engine usually used for powering helicopters of the face of the Earth, MTT is tuning it to churn out a massive 420hp at 52,000rpm and 810Nm of head-decapitating torque as low as 2,000rpm.All that firepower is transferred down to the rear 17-inch carbon fibre Dymag wheel via a 2-speed automatic gearbox and a final chain drive. Together with its aluminium alloy frame and a fuel tank capacity of 34 litres of diesel and kerosene, the MTT 420RR sits roughly at around 226kg which is roughly around the average weight of a cruiser.Of course, just talking about it won’t probably make much sense considering how crazy it sounds right about now.

Warriors romp past Lakers

first_imgBASKETBALL: Klay Thompson’s blistering performance from three-point range propelled the Golden State Warriors to a 130-111 NBA victory over the injury-depleted Los Angeles Lakers on Monday. Thompson joined former Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson as the only NBA players to make their first 10 attempts from three-point range, finishing 10-for-11 from beyond the arc and 17-of-20 overall for 44 points before sitting out the fourth quarter. By then the two-time defending champion Warriors were up 110-80 against a Lakers team missing injured superstar LeBron James along with guards Rajon Rondo and Lonzo Ball. “Regardless, it’s a good win,” Thompson said after the Warriors wrapped up an eighth straight victory. Kevin Durant added 20 points for the Warriors and Stephen Curry supplied 11 points and 12 assists, but it was Thompson in the spotlight having clearly sorted out the shooting troubles plaguing him in late December. – AFPlast_img read more
