Post-Listing Update: This jet bike did not get any interest at the asking price of $114,000.
When this bike was released, it took the Guinness World Records for most powerful production motorcycle and most expensive production motorcycle. It featured 320 horsepower, 425 pound feet of torque, 227 mile per hour top speed, and one of the greatest startup sounds ever.
Let’s take a look at Jay Leno’s Garage for a closer look at what this bike is like:
Built by MTT (Marine Turbine Technologies), the Y2K had a MSRP of $175,000. It had a 2 speed automatic parie dwith the Rolls Royce Allison C20 engine. Later versions of the Y2K got a power bump to 420 horsepower and 500 pound feet of torque. A couple of eBay listings have suggested that just 17 were built but I haven’t been able to find an independent source to verify this.
This example (VIN: SP25900LA) has 400 miles and it’s claimed to be the ex-personal bike of Ted McIntrye, president of MTT. It has the newer 420 hp engine and is street legal. Find this Jet Bike for sale in Phoenix, Arizona with a BIN of $114,000 or best offer
