In Stanley Kubrick’s classic film Dr. Strangelove Slim Pickens was dropped from the aeroplane riding a bomb. If he’d been riding a motorcycle then he would certainly have been astride a KTM Nitro Methane fueled dragster built by Finland based Salakazi Racing. With almost 1500 horsepower from just 1995 cc, the KTM Dragster does the quarter mile in 6.7 seconds at a terminal velocity of 316 kmh. Helping tame the KTM’s (barely) controlled explosion is a brace of “bomb proof” Renishaw RM22 compact, high-speed rotary magnetic encoders.
