Iconic British motorcycle brand Triumph is gearing up to break the world land speed record with an insane 1,000 hp motorcycle-rocket hybrid dubbed the Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner.

Later this month at the famed Bonneville Salt Flats they plan to best the current world record of 376.363 mph in the bespoke-built beast with support from motorcycle jacket brand Belstaff and cloud applications company Infor.

Piloting the Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner over the measured mile will be Isle of Man TT racer and multiple speed record holder Guy Martin (below). 

The Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner features a carbon Kevlar monocoque construction with two turbocharged Triumph Rocket III engines producing a combined 1,000 hp at 9,000 rpm. 

The world's fastest motorcycle is 25.5 feet long, 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall and is powered by methanol fuel. 

Triumph has a history of breaking the land speed record, and held the title of "World's Fastest Motorcycle" from 1955 to 1970. 

Their Bonneville models (above) are named after the salt flats where the records are traditionally set.
