Whether it’s a cantaloupe-sized spider devouring a sheep or a dingo doing a drive-by, Australia does everything big and crazy. So it’s only fitting that this V8 engine-packing motorcycle comes from the land down under.

It’s not the first Australian V8 motorcycle, but the PGM V8 is the latest and greatest. The 1996cc, 90-degree 2.0 liter V8 engine brings a whopping 334 horsepower at 12,800 rpm, with 157.7 lb-ft of torque, and it comes with a six-speed sequential gearbox and a wet multi-disc clutch. Despite the massive engine the PGM V8 weighs only 534 lbs. thanks its carbon fiber bodywork. Other highlights include twin titanium 4-into-2–into-1 exhausts custom-built by Akrapovic, a machined aluminum subframe at the rear, Ohlins suspensions, 48mm FGRT301 USD forks, Brembo brakes and Michelin tires on aluminum forged Marchesini spoked wheels.
