Does This Maserati Powered Bike Actually Work? – Find Out If You Can Ride A V8

Written By:

The Lazareth LM847 was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motors Show and was probably the most crazy thing to appear on the showfloor in Switzerland.

However, due to that big V8 engine, many doubted that the bike was actually rideable with many claiming it was another showpiece like the Dodge Tomahawk.

The LM847is 2650mm long, 900mm wide, 1000mm tall and has a 1850mm long wheelbase.

The front end of the quad (the 'motorcycle' actually has two wheels at either end) has a dual-wheel hub center steering setup up front and uses the rear end of the Ducati 1299 Panigale.

The bike also uses a custom suspension setup from TFX while the levers and the mirrors are made by Rizoma.

Powering the Lazareth LM 847 is a 4.7-litre V8 from Italian sports carmakers Maserati. The engine pushes out 463.5bhp and 620Nm of torque which is sent to the rear wheels by a single speed transmissions.

the LM 847 weighs in at just 400 kilograms giving it a mind boggling power to weight ratio of 1158bhp/ton.

With all that power and torque on board, we don't blame the rider for not pushing the LM847 to its limits.

Thankfully, Lazareth has fitted the quad with 420mm discs from Brembo with 8-piston calipers to the front wheels and a single 250mm brembo disc with 4-piston calipers at the back so if the rider does press on the brakes, he should come to a halt before he takes out everyone else.
