The Dolmette

The Dolmette is an innovative and crazy motorcycle, originally invented by the cult comic illustrator, Rötger Feldmann, better known as "Brösel", the author of WERNER.

The comic idea has now been translated into reality by a group of engineers at the firm Dolmar. They created a unique motorcycle unlike anything else in the world, driven by 24 professional chainsaw engines. The standard engine was tuned from 6.3 hp to 7.1 hp in order to achieve an overall performance of 170 hp. A clever system of 12 synchronous belts bundles this force and transmits it on to the back wheel, where it is engaged with a huge torque of 400 Nm.
