Insane Power to Weight Ratio

The Perfect Go Kart

Surely there’s nothing more fun than having a Go Kart with a Yamaha R1 1000cc Engine in it. What could be more fun?



Check out this weapon, flying through the streets in many other videos (please note, there are multiple videos with different kinds of Go Karts, but all bearing the same heart). With a YZF-R1 motor pulling an estimated 180 HP and only weighing in at 100 kg (220 pounds).


I personally would love to own one of these, go around with a nice little camera, but I must advise this just wouldn’t do it justice you’d need to be right in it, cornering and keeping it at full throttle. In the U.S.A these babies are worth around $4,500 – 7,500 (it’s completely based on luck). Totally worth it!
