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.
