Remember the six-cylinder Kawasaki KZ1300 from the late-1970s? The brutish,
motorcycle weighed an almighty 322kg, did the quarter mile in 11.96
seconds, and was capable of hitting a top speed of 225km/h. Enough for you?
It wasnt, for Allen Millyard, a nuclear research engineer by profession.
So what did Mr Millyard do? Why, he built his own bike of course a
12-cylinder Kawasaki KZ2300. While his hand-built machine looks stock, its
actually considerably bigger and the V12 engine is comprised of two
complete KZ1300 cylinder blocks.

hand built body. Suspension is all original designed out of steel. 1200hp,
supercharged (obv). The front wheel is a custom machined 1 piece 2 tire

Twin turbo Ferrari Testarossa on Engine
Dyno. The motor is a
4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are
interested check it out there.
