Dolmette motorcyle is powered by 24 Dolmar Chainsaw EnginesWhen you power a motorcycle with 24 petrol chain saws which have the best power to weight ratio, it has to be a hell of a ride. All of the chainsaw engines and the 5-speed Harley-Davidson transmission generates a total displacement of 1.9 litres, a power output of 125 kW (170 PS) and 130 Nm of torque at the centrifugal clutches.

That’s all technical talk, but I think we can assume that it’s fast and powerful. In case you were wondering, twelve engines are mounted in two rows of six on either side of the drive belt casing. Each engine is held in place by two threaded studs that normally serve to secure the guide bar to the chainsaw power head. The individual motors are coupled together in sets of three by means of a double-sided drive belt, making up eight modules in all. All in all pretty impressive and it looks like a strange jet-bike. Check out the video below and watch as they yank each engine to life as well as another of the bike in action.
