The MTT Turbine Superbike, also known as the Y2K Turbine Superbike, is a wheel-driven motorcycle powered by a turboshaft engine, created by Ted McIntyre of Marine Turbine Technologies. The machine is powered by a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 gas turbine producing 320 hp (240 kW) at 52,000 rpm.  this motorcycle has a recorded top speed of 227 mph (365 km/h), with a price tag of US$150,000. It is recognized by  World Records as the “Most powerful production motorcycle” and the “Most expensive production motorcycle”. Unlike some earlier jet-powered motorcycles, where a massive jet engine provided thrust to push the motorcycle, the turboshaft engine on this model drives the rear wheel via a two-speed gearbox.
