Asphaltfighters Stormbringer certainly ups the ante
Asphaltfighters of Germany will certainly wow motorheads with their latest production motorcycle – just check out the raw numbers of the Stormbringer and tell me that this beast isn’t your next dream ride (on two wheels, at least). Packing in a 999cc engine, the Stormbringer is capable of ekeing out 220hp with another 60 ponies which will kick in whenever you surpass the 180kmh – sort of like nitro for a bike, albeit under controlled conditions. Capable of surpassing the 198mph mark, the Stormbringer will hit 62mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, making it much faster in pick up compared to supercars, while other achievable targets include 124mph in 6.5 seconds, and 186mph in 13.9 seconds. Each purchase will come standard with a HELD riding suit and kevlar/carbon X-Lite helmet, and you know you will get your money’s worth since the riding position and suspension have been tailored for the buyer – you. This means no two machines are alike (unless you’re identical twins), and not everyone who sits on your ride will find it as comfortable as they might think it would be. The Asphaltfighters Stormbringer boasts the full array of cutting edge technology including 10 stage traction control, heads up display, rear-view camera and programmable speed limiter among many others for a relatively reasonable price tag of EUR 57,500 – that is, if you’re an oil baron or fall under the Forbes list.
Judging by the specifications, one can more or less argue that this is the world’s most extreme production motorcycle for the moment. Needless to say, something this exclusive will be produced in limited quantities, where each purchase will see the suspension tuned to the buyer’s weight and the riding position. Made in Germany, it has the standard 165bhp Kawasaki ZX-10R as its base, where Warm-up will then rework everything to result in such a beast.
