Motorcycles come in all sizes; there are small ones, usually 50 to 125cc, medium sized ones and even big motorcycles, like the BMW GS series. But what is a truly big motorcycle?
Fabio Reggiani from Italy recently made the Guinness Book of World Record by making world’s biggest motorcycle; a 16 ft 9 inch (5.10 meter) tall, twice as long as it is high and weighing 11,000 lbs (5,000 kilos). That is 6 times as big as a normal motorcycle.
But this is not a static bike, it actually runs. To power such an enormous big bike, it has a 5.7 liter V8 engine developing 280 horsepowers.
Just watch the video below to get an idea how big this monstrosity is. Of course it is not as long as world’s longest motorcycle (measuring 72 ft 2 in – 22 meters), but it is taller than the previously tallest motorcycle measuring 11 ft 3 in (3.429 meters).
But if the world record of the most number of people on a motorcycle stands at 54 (source), imagine how many can be on this record breaking motorcycle?
But one thing is for sure. No one in his right mind is going to cut off this bike on the road.
You can follow Fabio on his Facebook page. If you want to read more about the record breaking bike, you will need to buy the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records.
But remember, it is not size that counts.
