PGM: The 330-Horsepower, V8 Aussie Superbike

PGM V8 Motorcycle

Move over Ninja H2R. An Australian engineer has made an even more powerful new superbike, and it’s not even supercharged. Former Yamaha race engineer Paul Maloney combined two bikes, a 2006 and 2008 Yamaha R1 motorcycle to create this new PGM superbike. It is a 40-valve, 1996cc, 344 horsepower bike with a machined aluminium frame. It also has FGX forks and TTX shocks with Brembo brakes. In total it weighs 242kg, which is not too bad considering it is a v8. The price tag is a bit steep, but at $180,000 it is affordable to those wealthy few. There are also designs in the future for a 400 horsepower, 32-valve model that uses more modern, four-valve R1 cylinder heads.
