The Dolmette is the world's first chainsaw powered motorcycle, it is motorized by 24 DOLMAR chainsaw engines and applies a 5-speed Harley-Davidson transmission to bring 5.2 kW of power (7.1 PS) at 10,000 rpm. It can reach the speed of 125 kW when all 24 engines are united. Watch the video to see it in action.

Implications - Conservation of energy has become important in today's eco-conscious society. Many are looking for an alternative power source that will do just as good of a job as fuel and remain environmentally friendly at the same time. Wind and solar-powered items have become a choice for certain families, but there are huge limits for both. If companies discover a way to harness energy in an green efficient manner, it'll benefit both consumers and mother nature.
