    Default Jet Engine Suzuki GTP 550 - AIR RESEARCH

    By the time you realised that Y2k is the only jet engine bike, their was an engineer ranching up another Suzuki with a Jet Engine, but this time a nasty little "CAFE' Racer"

    Jet Engine Suzuki GTP 550  AIR RESEARCH -1248540

    Turbine powered vehicles are usually restricted to the skies but there's always someone willing to break the mold...unfortunately it doesn't always result in a practical vehicle, and this Cafe Racer styled Suzuki GT550 application is no exception.

    Jet Engine Suzuki GTP 550  AIR RESEARCH -1248541

    The NASTY Racer is just 160KG with 90 HP in it sleaves with a TURBINE Motor fitted to orignal GT550Gear Box..
    Fuel is Keresone+Deisal and tank is from some old Ducati, bike clocks 58000RPM when puking 90HP and Idles at 18k


    While the Airtech powered GTP 550 may result in you having a huge grin from ear to ear there is no way this use of a turbine powered motorcycle could ever reach mainstream production. Why? Well the wind up time is certainly not desirable and when you switch her off she winds down just as slowly and of course there's the ear piercing scream of the turbine, shattering windows and setting of car alarms as you cruise down to the local shops. Styling however is spot on, Cafe Racer all the way. I take my hat off to Mr Essen and any like him. They keep us smiling and certainly make life a tad more interesting.

    PS. you know its easy to source a brand new jet Turbine engine here in Pakistan as well for as low as 50k only.

    no the 250cc Engine will go into paiggio and I have many people willing to do that experiment on there bike ... however the 160cc engine which I have in mind I will put that in my own experimental 125 (which was used to be a chonda 78cc before) ...


    specifically this project is some thing different I have been waiting to do for a long time.. to source a feather bread frame bike like the GS550/650/750/1000 and I finally found a 550e so my plan is to convert it to Cafe' Racer.

    some of the idea in my mind are ... (and this fantasy doctor sahab is really going to take some time I hope I dont end up screwing it )
