PGM V8 On Show At Island Classic The World’s Most Powerful Production Bike
There will be more than 100 motorcycles on display in the Grand Prix paddock, and featured in the Shannon’s Parades at this year’s
AMCN International Island Classic, but the PGM V8 is one unique beast and will be at the AMCN stand throughout the weekend.
Built in his Victorian backyard, Aussie MotoGP race engineer Paul Maloney spent the past eight years designing and building the world’s most powerful production motorcycle that has 334HP and 214Nm of torque with a 2.0litre V8 engine and is currently the only one in existence. This awesome piece of machinery is a fully Vic Roads registered working prototype.
The PGM V8 components include: Akrapovic titanium exhaust, Motec M130 and dash, Marchesini wheels, Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension, as well as full carbon fibre body work.
Alan Cathcart the world’s leading motorcycle journalist had this to say:
“The PGM V8 is the single most impressive piece of multi-cylinder madness I’ve ever had the privilege of riding.
“It’s hard to over-emphasise how thoroughly practical and totally rideable the PGM V8 is in real world conditions.”
To see it in the flesh, paw over its carbon fibre glory, and to hear the sound of that engine be sure to head to the Island Classic this Australia Day long weekend.
Here’s a reminder of what it sounds like! Phwoar!
