3800hp Motorcycle

Anyway, here are some details which I grab from WorldCarFans and Jalopnik which is the original source of the story.

Powered by a Rolls Royce Viper Turbojet aircraft Jet Engine, the motorcycle really can fly with its 3800hp. I really don't know how they ride it and how fast will it go. It might fly to the moon I guess.
