Beer-Powered Motorcycle, Can Speeds Up To 240 km Per Hour
A US man ‘Ky Michaelson’ has built a beer-powered motorcycle which can run at a highest speed of 240 km/hr. However, the inventor doesn’t drink beer.
In a remarkable display of creativity, a man named Ky Michaelson from Bloomington, USA, has unveiled his latest invention that is capturing attention in the biking world—a beer-powered motorcycle.
Known for his previous outlandish creations like a rocket-powered toilet and a jet-powered coffee pot, Ky has once again pushed the boundaries of innovation.
His beer-powered motorcycle features a 14-gallon keg equipped with a heating coil instead of a traditional gas-powered engine.
The coil heats the beer to an astonishing 300 degrees, converting it into superheated steam in the nozzles, which propels the bike forward.
Ky, also known as “Rocketman,” explains that he doesn’t drink and saw an opportunity to use beer as a sustainable fuel alternative given the rising gas prices.
While the motorcycle has not yet hit the open road, it has already garnered recognition at local car shows, where it claimed the first position.
Ky envisions the bike reaching speeds of up to 150 miles per hour (240 km/h), a testament to the potential power of beer as fuel.
He plans to further test its capabilities on a drag strip in the near future before eventually retiring the motorcycle to a museum in his house.
Ky’s son, Buddy, highlights the versatility of the invention, noting that while beer is the current fuel of choice, the concept can be adapted to other liquids such as Red Bull or Caribou Coffee.
This demonstrates the wide-ranging possibilities of Ky’s creation, not limited solely to alcoholic beverages.
For bike enthusiasts, Ky Michaelson’s beer-powered motorcycle is an exciting and unconventional addition to the world of motorized transportation.
It showcases the potential for innovative and sustainable alternatives to traditional fuel sources, while also serving as a testament to human creativity. As Ky himself stated, “We’re right in the early stages, but we got it. We got it built, and I think it looks pretty cool.”
