0-200mph in 15 seconds? most of our boats would barely be on plane by the time this thing was at 100.

I have been following that bike since they designed it and had it on Speed Vision a few years ago. It is phenominal. Estimated top speed of 220+. When they tested it on a runway, they called the acceleration "exponential", and literally ran out of runway somewhere over 200 mph, as the cop's radar gun they tested with started blinking at 199, and they still needed room to shut down the bike. It sounds like an F-16 going by. They originally listed at over $250K, but that seems to have come down a bit. I think you can forget about insurance on it; other than Lloyd's of London. They literally turned the turbine upside down for the install, and the faster the bike goes, the more the centrufical force pushes the bike to the ground. Unfathomable.
