The Amazonas is a Brazilian-built motorcycle manufactured from 1978 to 1990.

Considered one of the world's heaviest production motorcycle because of its 800 pounds, the bike used a modified 1600 cc Beetle engine. Being so huge, the machine had the VW transmission's reverse gear which proved to be very useful.
