Short answer - no.

Long answer - I don't think there's a way to salvage your super bike question so that it would be constructive for the Engineering site.


There's two main parts as to why your question isn't a good fit for the site. The first is that your question lives within fantasy and not within the real world.

The current world record holder for that category came in at ~605 kph. Technology gains over the last 25 years brought about a measly 85 kph in improvements, and you're looking to best the current record by ~450 kph.

The parts required to "spec out" your bike would rely heavily upon unobtanium. That's a really bad sign regarding the quality of answers your question would likely attract. Said another way, the parts you need simply don't exist and aren't within the grasp of a reasonable R&D budget.

If it could have already been done or even reasonably closely been done, it would have. There's a lot of bragging rights for the manufacturers who are involved in breaking those records.

The second major issue with your question is that it's simply too big. There's a lot of components that have to specified in order to construct a motorcycle. Specifying the minimum capabilities of what each of those components would have to reasonably support in order to reach 1050 kph would simply require too long of an answer.

As a rule of thumb, if a question needs more than 3 or 4 paragraphs to properly answer, then the question is too broad for the StackExchange format.

All that said, I don't think you have a bad question, just a question that doesn't fit the StackExchange Q&A format. Big, hypothetical, provoke discussion type questions don't work well with StackExchange. The questions that work are focused on specific problems or challenges that can be given meaningful and specific answers.

    $\begingroup$ The 3-4 paragraphs heuristic is super rough but I agree this would be too broad for SE. Consider instead looking for a discussion-centric community focused on motorcycles and/or automotive engineering, that's up for a wide-open challenge. $\endgroup$
