In 1906, the internal combustion engine had just appeared for about 30 years, and the two rounds of transportation were still at the level of the bicycle. At this time, a speed maniac Glenn Curtiss came to light, and the V8 engine of a plane was mounted on the bicycle. So there was the earliest V8 motorbike -- Curtiss V8.
