The Dodge Viper holds a special place for many auto enthusiasts due to its raw performance, stunning looks, and the fact that it remained an uncompromised driver's car for all of its existence. Of course, the heart of the Viper is its unique powerplant, an all-aluminum V-10 developed to be the meanest naturally aspirated track terror that Ma Mopar ever cooked up. https://www.hagerty.com/media/motorcycles/could-you-handle-the-meanest-viper-on-two-wheels/
Looks like the rider's right knee is within an inch of the exhaust header. I see there's a heat shield there, but I'm guessing that the rider's suit has got Nomex in it. Otherwise it wouldn't be a ride, it would be a barbecue.
I'm sure I could not handle it. I owned a Boss Hoss for a time and never got comfortable with it. But Allen is a next level genius at wringing amazing projects from the resources he has. The Viper bike seems straightforward compared to how he melded two Kawasaki straight sixes into a V-12: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnXUx4cYdHA
It’s a cool bike but needs improvement. It needs some type of transmission so it can rev higher, can’t even do a tire shredding burnout:( Also needs a different air intake system as it sounds like it’s starving for more air when it first gets going. Tamahawk was the first viper engine motorcycle and it was bad ass!! Great innovation though.
This is nuts in the best sense of the word. So crazy and so awesomely engineered. Great mind for this. For some reason I feel like he would invite us to the Shire and then we would have to go throw a ring in the volcano. Hmm, love his voice too.
