Although it may be a while until we see a Tesla Motorcycle, CarWow is busy putting together drag racing matchups with the Porsche 911 Turbo S, a KTM Red Bull MotoGP bike and then a KTM road motorcycle.

Allen Millyard always wanted a Dodge Viper V10-powered motorcycle, so he built his own, as only nine Dodge Tomahawk bikes were ever made.
