How have they gotten around the lag issue common to turbines? Twist the grip, and wait a couple of seconds for the power to come on does not sound like a good riding experience.

Sounds awsome on Youtube! Jay Leno has one and I heard he was at traffic lights on it one day and the exhaust is very hot and when he looked around, it had melted the the plastic bumper on the car behind! I'll be suprised if it runs on diesel or aviation fuel as one burns and the other works on compression/detonation, but I could be wrong. Someone enlighten me!  If I win on Euromillions, I'll have one!!

Saw One Of These.... Elvington last year, ridden by Zeff Eisenberg from Guernsey. Quite a sight on the runway at 200mph.

About melting the bumper of a car with it's exhaust: I've got a picture of Trevor Duckworth making toast with the exhaust from Zeff's bike.

Using diesel..

..does not make this a diesel. As with any turbine, fuel mileage is just about measured in gallons per mile. And yes, just about any combustible liquid fuel can work. That diesel fuel in a diesel engine is ignited by the heat of higher compression has nothing to do with how it burns in a turbine.

At last...

A practicle bike for once. With 120bhp more than my Busa  (which has 120bhp more than my CBR600) I should be able to have a bit of fun.
