KMD K-007 Tron: A $1,400 Dodge Tomahawk rip-off!

Back in 2005, Dodge actually sold 10 of its outrageous Tomahawk motorcycles. Powered by the Dodge Viper’s 8.3-litre, 500bhp V10, the Tomahawk could, in theory, accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 1.75 seconds and hit a top speed of 560km/h (or even 680km/h, depending on who you choose to believe!) Either way, it didn’t really matter, because at its price of US$550,000 it’s a wonder Dodge even sold 10 of these.

And if you’ve always wanted a Tomahawk but never had 550,000 bucks lying around in spare change, you now have a $1,400 Tomahawk rip-off from China. It’s called the KMD K-007 Tron and it’s fitted with a 150cc, 8bhp single-cylinder engine and CVT transmission from a scooter. It probably won’t do more than 75km/h, but if all you want to do is impress your girlfriend’s parents, rolling up on one of these should get it done…

For the full range of KMD scooters and motorcycles, visit their website here, and to buy a K-007 Tron, go here


For the front suspension alone, spending 1,400 bucks on one of these should be worth it!
