Millyard Viper V10: Allen Millyard builds 8.0-litre V10-engined streetbike

The Millyard Viper V10. We're left speechless...

British engineer Allen Millyard, who’s built some pretty insane Kawasaki specials in the past, is at it again. And this time, he’s built a hugely impressive street-legal motorcycle that’s powered by an 8,400cc, 500-horsepower V10 from the Dodge Viper. No high-res pictures yet, but do watch the video below – the bike looks and sounds truly, deeply, madly AWESOME! Mr Millyard proves that for now, motorcycling is safe from lithium-ion batteries and electric motors...

We wrote to Allen and asked him what most people think about his Viper V10 bike. 'There are a lot of idiots out there that think I made it to compete with a Yamaha R1 and should be doing burnouts, wheelies and scraping the pegs,' he says. 'I must say that it does go around corners very well for a 600kg bike and I only have 10mm wide chicken strips on the back tyre. I made the Viper because I like making and riding unusual motorcycles.' Amen.

The Millyard Viper V10, in action. Completely insane!!!

Update (03.11.2009): The Viper V10 hits 331km/h...
