No, we’re not really from Motorvisie, but enough petrol heads will be interested in this amazing creation. In addition, there is a clear link with the world of cars. This motorcycle is powered by the 8.0-liter V10 from the Dodge Viper.

An 8.0-liter engine is already too much for a car, let alone a motorcycle. However, a British engine builder came along Allen Millyard in 2009 the idea came to build Viper-V10 in his two wheeler.

He used a ten-cylinder from the 1995 Dodge Viper GTS. The engine was originally intended for a small truck, but with some help from Lamborghini, it was stripped into the Viper. Millyard opened up this V10 and built a motorcycle around it.

“That engine is a beast,” says colleague Peter Hilhorst in this episode of Peters Proefrit from 2018 about the V10. Without ABS and traction control, the Dodge Viper GTS is not a cat to handle without gloves.

However, the Viper still distributes power over two 335-millimeter-wide rear wheels. Millyard Viper V10, as the motorcycle is called, is related to its single rear wheel. It’s nothing for the novice car rat. So it was Bruce Dunn’s experiments that reached a speed of 333 kilometers per hour on the creation of Frankenstein.

The inventor had to make many parts himself in his shed. For example, there were no front forks large enough to use on a V10 motorcycle. He also joined all the frame parts together himself. The large engine block is also part of the frame.

In that sense it’s nothing more than a V10 with a steering wheel and wheels. Well, that’s a very short view. It took a bit of effort to find everything about this one away project to work. Allen Millyard tells you all in the video below check in and out of his Dodge Viper V10 motorcycle.

630 kg and more than 500 hp

When you see the motorcycle, you immediately understand what makes it a unique project. The ten-cylinder is huge and weighs 340 kilograms, according to Allen Millyard. The total weight of his creation is about 630 kg. More than your average motorcycle. According to the owner, the V10 produces 500 horsepower to its two wheels, which it owns special bike therefore it is more powerful than the average motorcycle.
