New World Motorcycle Speed Record -376 MPH
Rocky Robinson has set a new Land Speed record for a motorcycle of 376.363mph (605km/h) at Bonneville on the twin engine Ack Attack streamliner.
Set at the Bonneville, Utah “Top Speed Shootout” on September 25th 2010, Robinson’s record setting run featured an incredible exit speed from the timed part of the course of 394mph (634km/h).
The Ack Attack machine is a 20 foot long, chrome moly framed streamliner. The carbon fibre body hides a pair of turbo charged Suzuki Hayabusa engines.
Motoaus.com spoke to the easy-going Robinson last year, when he spoke of his disappointment at briefly setting a record, only to have it exceeded at the same event by another competitor, Chris Carr.
Robinson has now put that behind him by shatterring the record by nearly 10 mph.
Could we see a 400mph run from a motorcycle in the near future?
