(Video) Chrysler Tomahawk V10 Production-Ready Motorcycle

chrysler tomahawk v10

By David Ponce

Here at OhGizmo, we’re big fans death inducing means of locomotion. That’s why we’re excited to bring you news of the Chrysler Tomahawk V10. It’s a ready-for-production “motorcycle” that happens to pack 500 horses, 8.3L and 10 cylinders in its engine, which, incidentally, was borrowed from the Dodge Viper. This propels the crotch rocket up to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds, while allegedly being able to reach speeds in excess of 300mph. It requires four wheels, separated by a few inches, to keep traction, and each wheel has independent suspension. Riding it makes you look like a possibly lethal enforcer from another planet. Or a total douche.

You decide.

Either way, Chrysler executives are seriously considering producing a few hundred models for “true enthusiasts”, who would have to shell $250,000 to get their hands on one. And, to make things sweet, we’ve included a video of the bike in action, after the fold.

    I can think of a few “Better” things to spend $250,000 if I had it… Like pay off all my bills, invest a bit and take a long deserved vacation… hehe

    Nice Bike tho…

    I think this is old. I remember seeing this in like 2000. Also, I think the hayabusa (sp?) has 500 hp and looks like a normal bike and can turn.

    Interesting idea, but I don’t think its workable. that much weight on a motorcycle would make it practically unusable and dangerous.

    Hello? This is very old.

    Keith, the Busa makes 175hp at around 9800 RPM.

    Man, doesn’t anyone around here think before they post?

    damn, like 5 years ago this was cool.

    The ‘busa has less power, but I’d estimate that it’s about half of the weight. The better power to weight ratio would make it quicker.

    What a great bike … for me to poop on at Sturgis.

  • Mateus Alves

    I have seen this bike more than a year now, and have dreamed with it since that moment, probably will kill all the testdrivers.

  • Phoenix

    The concept of the 4 wheels is pure genius. Heck with everyone else,this bike is bad to the bone.I challenge anyone to out ride the tomahawk.The alignment is incredible.Great job and keep up the imagination

    Bit late with this post but, the UK produced Triumph Rocket will match the initial acceleration of the Tomahawk at a considerably lower price. A bonus also is that it is possible at sensible speeds to stay on it. Neither is there any enhanced risk to the rider or the public.
