The PGM V8 Bike Has a Monstrous V8 Engine

A small team of Australian motorbiking enthusiasts is bidding to keep the country's great tradition of petrolhead motorbike love intact with the PGM V8, a motorcycle that is designed to tear up the road and take no prisoners.

The PGM V8 motorbike is a monster on the road. This bike is equipped with a mean 1996cc 90-degree V8 engine capable of spinning out 12,800 revs per minute. This allows it to produce an incredibly impressive output of 334 horsepower or 249 kilowatts at its countershaft sprocket, while offering up 158 pounds-feet of torque.

Now this motorbike isn't the first Australian V8 engine-equipped creation, as those have been around for years now. However while other bikes have used existing engines, the PGM team painstakingly created a proprietary engine for the purpose, making this an even more impressive feat.
