This monstrosity is the work of Simon Whitlock. It is a Kawasaki H1 with 6 inline-eight engines (Yes you heard it right, 6 inline-eight which has a total displacement of 4.2l and has a whopping 48 cylinders in total) from the S1 (Another Kawasaki bike) with a crankshaft for each of them which is tied together by gears and mated to a BMW transmission. To awaken this beast from its slumber, there's 6 Jaguar E-Type distributors and a 75cc motor under the seat.
