A Peugeot that’s as wild as a Lamborghini!


He has a 100bhp Peugeot V6 in there. Your Hayabusa will blow him into the weeds, but the V6 can't be beat for sheer style!

We think bikes powered by six-cylinder engines are fun – witness the Honda CBX, Laverda V6, Honda Evo6 and Suzuki Stratosphere. Based in France, Michel Guédon also seems to like six-cylinder motorcycles, which is probably why he built one of his own - the bike you see here - back in the early-1990s.

The bike, which weighs 330 kilos dry, is powered by a 100bhp, 2664cc, V6 engine taken from a Peugeot 604. Brakes are Brembo units, the front fork is a Marzocchi item, and the chassis and transmission have been designed and built by Mr Guédon himself. We don’t know if the Peugeot bike will handle, and 100bhp doesn’t sound like much in this day and age of 180bhp GSX-Rs. But we’d still have one for the sheer spectacle alone…

Wild and wilder...
