New motorcycle speed record set

Top 1 Ack Attack raises the bar to 376 mph

By Staff, Sep. 27, 2010
Rocky Robinson and the Top 1 Ack Attack team have regained control of the title of “World’s Fastest Motorcycle.” The new record, which still has to be ratified by the FIM, was set at the Top Speed Shootout at the Bonneville Salt Flats on Sept. 25, 2010.

The Top 1 Ack Attack team earned the world record back by recording a run of 376.363 mph, shattering the previous record of 367.382 set by Chris Carr on the BUB Streamliner at the Cook’s Shootout in 2009. Carr’s record broke Robinson’s old mark of 360.913 mph set in 2008.

In setting the new world record, the Top 1 Ack Attack team exited the 11-mile course travelling at a sizzling 394 mph – just shy of the magical 400 mph barrier.
