Top 10 Vehicles Powered By Motorcycle Engines


Quote:
The history of motorcycle engines powering other vehicles goes back a long way. Look at the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, for example. Almost a century ago, J.A.P. bike engines were plunked onto the front of a strange piece of machinery with two wheels in front and one in the back. It proved to be popular and a rather high-performing vehicle in its time. For this Top 10 list we take a look at other applications for motorcycle engines. As you can imagine with a list like this, there are a wide variety of vehicles. Some are production cars, while others are one-offs or boutique items. And yes, even though this is Motorcycle.com, I want to get behind the wheel of every single one of these! So, if you’re a rep from one of the below companies (or are simply a kind soul who owns one), give me a jingle and let’s make it happen!

In my humble, but biased opinion, no vehicle powered by a motorcycle engine has had a greater impact on world history than one I am proud to say is "mine".

Powered by what is basically the original Norton rotary engine, making 1hp for every pound of weight, and capable of continuous operation at well over 10,000 RPM for hours and hours of operation.

It is on display in the Smithsonian air and Space museum in DC, and another on display at the Huntsville, AL airport; the gateway to Redstone Arsenal.

It was watching when Navy SEALS popped Bin Laden.

It has also racked up more time in combat than the Huey Helicopter in Vietnam.

Oh yeah, it saved what you know today as Norton motorcycles.

The AAI Textron Systems Shadow 200.
