The Y2K Turbine Superbike

With a starting price of $175,000, Jay Leno purchased the Y2K Turbine Superbike that sounds like a helicopter or jet engine when cruising down the winding roads in California.

This awesome superbike has a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 gas turbine engine, the same engine that provides the power to many helicopters and airplanes.  The bike also has a turboshaft the moves the rear wheel of the motorcycle through a two-speed gearbox instead of thrust power, creating a power output rated at 350 horsepower.

Check out this video and make sure you turn the volume up – this is an amazing Superbike!
