Dodge 8300 TOMAHAWK 2003

Appeared at the Detroit Motor Show 2003, the Tomahawk of the American manufacturer Dodge (a subsidiary of Daimler-Chrysler) pushes the limits of the incredible. Is it really a motorcycle? Hard to say. What matters above all is its engine. On this level, it’s simple: absolute delirium.

Even if it means doing a crazy show-bike, you might as well put a crazy engine in it. And the lucky winner is none other than the V10 of the Dodge Viper. A gigantic tumbled moulbif exceeding 8 liters of displacement. With its power, the motorcycle is theoretically capable of knocking down a fighter jet when starting up.
500 horses – 71 mkg – a top speed exceeding 500 km / h which can be reached in 400 m … Frightening figures which are only half astonishing as we remain surprised by the beast. Aesthetically, the Tomahawk surprises, stuns, disturbs; it’s a visual uppercut. When you get back to your senses, you remain forbidden: it’s an engine and wheels, basta. Those of the front are held by articulated arms of strong section connected to a monocoque aluminum frame. Each receives a perimeter brake track of 508 mm on which bite 2 calipers of 4 pistons. The rear braking is hardly less impressive with also 2 perimeter tracks, but with only one caliper per wheel. Such a set of 4 discs and 16 pistons is not superfluous because the machine weighs a trifle of 680 kgs..

The most incredible thing in all of this is that this unusual motorcycle can take an angle. Beyond the sensational side, we are dealing with a very worked concept that can roll and not just surprise. The American manufacturer even plans to create a small series to satisfy surrealist machine enthusiasts. Besides the price which will reserve it for the elite, it is very unlikely that this machine will be approved on the road. I don’t allow myself to judge but the picture on the right gives you an idea of ​​what you will look like riding a monster of this type.
