Some people would say that with this article we’re trying to compare apples and oranges.
Maybe, we are. But, so what?
They’re both fruits, aren’t they?!
The Boss Hoss V8 and the Yamaha R1 are built for very distinct purposes, and in very distinct manners. But, at the end of the day, they’re both motorcycles that we love.
Boss Hoss Cycles prepare some pretty insane motorcyles using Chevrolet V8 engines.
Yes, the kind you see in their bigger cars and pickups. The blocks used on Boss Hoss motorcycles vary between 5.7L and 8.2L.
That’s more than just about every other car you see on the road.
On the other hand, the Yamaha R1 uses a 1.0L 4-cylinder blocks, which are by no means humble.
The Boss Hoss beats the Yamaha hands down in terms of sheer power.
However, the high-revving motors of the R1s coupled with their lightweight plastic bodies make up for some pretty serious machines.
This video is a match like no other. Pure brute force vs. racing tech! Despite their humongous size and weight, Boss Hoss cycles pick up very fast, owing to their massive blocks.
Watch the video and see who wins, as the two motorcycles at the complete opposite ends of the motorcycling spectrum go up against each other!
