Cosmos 2RWF and 4RWF V8 Muscle Bikes

Cosmos 2RWF and 4RWF
Amadeu Ferreira is thinking big. V8 engine big. Both of his Cosmos Muscle Bike creations source a ZZ4 Crate Engine with a claimed 350 horsepower.
Who says the ‘bigger is better’ days are gone? Somebody forgot to tell Brazilian Amadeu Ferreira, Jr., who is using a 350 cubic-inch powerplant in two wildly styled creations called the 2RWF and the 4RWF. These behemoths aren’t for the timid or meek, as a ZZ4 Crate Engine with a claimed 350 hp is mounted between the frame rails of an 8.2-foot long streetfighter. I’d like to see our resident street demon Adam wheelie this sucker!

With its dual headlights and naked design, the 2RWF looks like a Street Triple on steroids. It’s got 17-inch wheels wrapped in thick chunks of black rubber. It’s crazy to see four pipes jutting off of each side of the engine block and exiting into single undertail cans. The mondo fan on the front isn’t the little box fan you’ll find on other bikes, either, not with eight pistons pumping. Check out the crazy riding position in the video below as the rider stretches as far as he can to reach the handlebars  
.
He also created a revolutionary four-wheeled concept with hub steering called Cosmos 4RWF. The front end has two wheels placed close together with each fork arm connected to a hub steering system. Though the wheels are mounted independently, they are still designed to work in unison. The 4RWF has a front fairing that looks like it was created by James Bond’s Q branch. The quadracycle sources a fuel-injected, 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 Crate Engine mated to a three-

speed transmission that includes a reverse gear. The 4RWF has two 17-inch wheels on the backside as well mounted close together like the arrangement on the front. In the brief video clip provided, the 4RWF’s straight-line ability is demonstrated but it doesn’t show it taking on any turns so whether it pivots side-to-side like a motorcycle is unknown.

Cosmos Muscle Bikes were born out of what Ferreira perceived as an open niche, riders who appreciate a high-powered V8 motorcycle that don’t have the jaded styling of a Boss Hoss. Each bike will be numbered and production is limited to ensure exclusivity of ownership. They are built to the dimensions of the rider based on their physical characteristics. Cosmos offers customers the opportunity to visit the shop after 15 days to evaluate the progress of the build.

After developing and building V8 projects to help some friends, mechanical engineer Amadeu Ferreira, Jr. decided to build a V8 motorcycle himself. Ferreira realizes these motorcycles aren’t for everybody, but is confident that there is still a market for them. According to a press release issued by Cosmos, “They are motorcycles of high power, conceived

with a high standard of trustworthiness and quality. The Cosmos team has found a balance between traditional style and a view of the future in its products. The bikes are manufactured with three main qualities: beauty, robustness and technology. Maximum power for those who do not run away from challenges.”

This video was made with a prototype. See actual videos at: www.cosmosmusclebikes.com.br
William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson (ghosts) -Great bike  October 26, 2009 05:20 PM
What a bunch of envious losers. That's a great bike. Better looking than the Tomahawk (which has a design too over futuristic).
milwaukee mike -What a waste of chevy motors  October 23, 2009 08:42 AM
The four wheeler would be considered an automobile in this country and the two wheeler looks as if your riding a crotch rocket.
I hope these crap cycles never reach our shores.
irksome -Yeah, sure.  October 23, 2009 08:10 AM
Further proof that some masturbatory fantasies are better left unwanked. Does the dragging sidestand come standard?
Blake -Wow!  October 22, 2009 07:51 PM
EPIC FAIL!!!
Bob K -Tomohawk  October 22, 2009 10:28 AM
Tim, you are correct. The whole 4 wheeled one thing is basically a Tomohawk wannabee. The suspension is eerily similar as well based on memory as I haven't seen it in 6 years or so. And yes, the Tomohawk DID work. However the test rider wasn't very good on it. I think he crashed it at 10 mph. The Tomohawk did look much better than this thing, especially with all the satin billet on that great sounding V-10. Nothing to do with nationalism. I like things from all over the world.
Tim B -Inspired by China!  October 22, 2009 10:02 AM
We make things in China to save money, but since when are we stealing Chinese "styling"? That...thing looks like a Chinese version of Chrysler's Tomohawk! It even looks like he stole the steering system. Exactly how is this bike "revolutionary"?!

Oh and "Suelen Büsse thuda"...Chrysler's Tomohawk actually functioned and was ridden. And Chrysler actually SOLD copies of the Tomohawks. It was not a "static mockup" as you claim. So don't call people blind when you are blind yourself.
Suelen Büsse thuda -Blind nationalism  October 22, 2009 01:28 AM
Just take a look at Chrysler Tomahawk. And it was a static mockup. Just because it is American, is better than that? Or, just because Ferreira is not American, same people is criticizing him. Blind nationalism...
Shnapper -Sniff sniff  October 21, 2009 08:04 PM
Dang did somebody fart? These pieces of turd aren't fast enough to get you past the smell!!!!!!
bryan harley -dangling kickstand  October 21, 2009 04:13 PM
Yeh, ThomBoz, I thought that was hilarious, too. Check out the rider's reactions. He looks like he's terrified of the V8 beneath him.
bikerrandy -Cosmos V8 Muscle bikes  October 21, 2009 02:27 PM
Though I have no real interest in riding/owning 1 of these behemoths, I'm still in AWE of their looks!!! UNBELIEVEABLE !! 8 ^ 0 For reality's sake I'll stick to my maxi-scooters and maybe 60 hp bikes, thank you. But I still would like to see these up close for the eye candy. 8 ^ )
oh my -oh wow  October 21, 2009 01:35 PM
Hurry...Bring back BUELL!
ThomBoz -Cosmos  October 21, 2009 01:13 PM
Gimme a break, the 4 wheeler is on the shoulder of the road. The two wheeler is getting passed by a semi... while the kickstand is dangling and scraping the road. I'm soooooooo impressed. ThomBoz
Cory -I aint buying it  October 21, 2009 12:57 PM
Litrally and figuratively. The whole bike looks jaded.
