Remember the completely mad-hatter 100 bhp auto-rickshaw from last week? Well, its back now and finally we see it on the go, and boy, she can move. The brainchild of DIY specialist Colin Furze, this once-humble Hamara Bajaj RE rick packs a Honda CBR600RR motorcycle’s manic 600 cc, liquid cooled, inline four engine. In it’s current state of tune, the engine produces almost 100 bhp, certifying the antics you see here.
Of course, the chassis has been extensively modified and reinforced to handle the added weight of the new Honda motor, and the puny rear wheels and tires have been ditched for some hefty rubber. Up front, the rickshaw’s steering handle has been altered to integrate the bike’s switch-gear and levers, complete with a floor mounted gear shifter. Apart from that, Colin has also bolted the Honda’s instrumentation console ahead of the steering handle, while the entire wiring loom has been modified to adapt to the new body. Also, additional linkages have been custom built for the rear brake and the clutch.
Colin seems to be obsessed with the ammunition laden tuk-tuk from the first person, action shooting game Far Cry 4, so on the side of the thing we have a pair of AK-47s- what the hell(!), while up front we get a pair of what appear to be Mini Uzis. And for when the scenario gets really serious, the twin RPG launchers on the roof will serve you well. Check all that in action in this positively wild video.
Here’s a whole bunch of images of this three-wheeler gone bonkers!
