Fastest Motorcycle?

The Asphaltfighters Stormbringer powered by Warm Up, will debut at the Essen Motor Show in Germany. The ultra-high-performance bike, that claims to be the world’s fastest street motorcycle, will be unveiled and on display at the Speed Bike Show in hall 6 at the Essen Expo Center starting on November 28th, 2009.

The motorcycle declares a top speed of more than 199 mph; with a rated power output of 220 hp / 161.9 kW, which in booster-mode claims to grow to 280 hp / 206 kW. The company is boosting a spectacular design and systematic lightweight construction that is combined with revolutionary features never before seen on a motorcycle. (And as you can see we have not yet seen it either).

Warm Up Zweiradtechnik GmbH, a leading custom bike manufacturer based in Germany, transformed the Asphaltfighters Stormbringer concept into this ultra-high-performance motorcycle. Straight-line speed and extremely sporty handling were the goals of the project. Additionally, the motorcycle is said to have some exclusive equipment and innovative details.
