World’s Fastest Monowheel Motorcycle. 61.18 MPH.

A Monowheel motorcycle is one large wheel revolving around a track, inside which the engine and rider are housed. The driver has to control the vehicle using careful control of throttle and perfect balance. UK Monowheel Team and Kevin Scott recorded a staggering speed of 98.464 km/h (61.18 mph) on their incredible monowheel WarHorse, at Elvington Airfield in North Yorkshire, UK. To achieve this Guinness World Records title, the monowheel had to be run solely on power produced by its engine and the speed had to be timed from a flying start over a distance of no less than a quarter mile (402 metres). Previously, the fastest mono wheel motorcycle reached a speed of 91.7 km/h (57 mph) and was achieved by Kerry McLean (USA) who is considered a pioneer in this vehicle category.

    Interesting machine and congrats on the record.

    Not a big fan of the Flintstone brakes though.

    I think the gentleman in the video explained the “why” part quite well, kind of like when people ask “why” we ride motorcycles when there’s so many nice cars available.
