The Chris Carr piloted BUB Seven is now the fastest motorcycle in the world, completing a record-breaking run at the Bonneville Salt Flats this afternoon with a 362.742 entry speed, 367.809mph mile, 367.953mph kilometer and 372.534mph exit speed. All that with a 3.0-liter, turbocharged, 500bhp V4. The previous record was 360.913mph, set by Team Ack Attack last year.

Update: the official two-way average is 367.382mph. That has to be reviewed and what not, but it’s pretty safe to say we have a new record.
