You may have been sent emails that look like a photoshopped enlarged monster looking motorcycle, however don't be fooled the guys at GUNBUS in Germany take their bike very seriously.

At PressPortal we're not quite sure where the guys at GUNBUS got the idea from, probably sipping a German amber liquor some October and after returning from the bar with an oversized German beer in one hand, and a massive Kranksy in the other its actually probably not that hard to imagine where they got the idea from.

The GUNBUS 410 is named after its engine, don't be confused with the unit of measurement GUNBUS use, its definatley not cc (cubic centremetres), would you believe that the rider sits just inches above a 410 cubic inch V-twin engine. 410 cubic inches is 6.2 Litres in the modern metric world, so each cylinder has a capacity of 3.1 Litres.

This monster production bike is unique to say the least however it sports retro racing design, with high wall tyres, naked frame and straight handlebars.

Some mind blowing specifications

Each GUNBUS 410 is hand built in Germany, but I'm not too sure if they'll make their way down to OZ..
