Bill Warner’s motorcycle might not look particularly impressive. In fact, you could say it looks like a soap box racer turned backwards, or just plain goofy. But despite its looks, this two-wheeler is shaped for aerodynamics, and it pays off. As of Sunday, it is officially the world’s fastest open-cockpit motorcycle, setting a new record of 311.945 miles per hour. Check the video of Warner breaking the record:
The former record of 278.8mph was also Warner’s, which he set last year. The venue was a retired Air Force base in Maine. And while the world’s fastest bike packs quite a punch (despite needing a push to start), it’s not really fit for the street. According to Jalopnik:
So don’t expect to see it on the road anytime soon. Although seeing how fast it moves, you won’t catch much of a glimpse, anyway.
