A Triumph Daytona 675 powered by bioethanol fuel recently reached an astonishing track speed of 255 km/h at a test facility in Bruntingthorpe, England.

The biofuel used for this groundbreaking initiative was produced by students from a local high school, using windfall apples.

Devised by a motorcycle magazine editor, “Project Fast Fruit” aimed to convert and run a high-performance vehicle on biofuel using only basic equipment. As such, the fuel was produced in a chemistry lab as part of a class project by students from the Prince William School in Oundle, Northamptonshire.

Triumph Motorcycles, the iconic British manufacturer, initially entered into the scheme some four months ago by providing its world leading Daytona 675 model as the test bike.
