The Fastest Motorbikes in the World
Many people can only dream of owning a superbike and imagine traveling at the speed of light around the fastest racetracks in the world. But if you had unlimited money and could choose any machine that you wanted, what bike would you choose? Hopefully we can solve that conundrum by highlighting the fastest bikes on the planet at the moment, and we start off with a concept motorcycle that will blow your mind.
This flying machine should really not be included in this prestigious list as it is a concept bike that has only seen 9 machines come off the production line. It is included because it is the fastest two wheeled machine that has ever been made. Powered by an 8.3-liter V-10 Dodge Viper engine, it is capable of reaching speeds up to four hundred and twenty miles per hour. In fact, to keep this beast on the road there are actually four wheels, with two matching front and rear. If you wanted to try out a 0-60mph test, then this would take just one and a half seconds.
Kawasaki Ninja H2R
The real fastest production bike that is currently on the market is the amazing Kawasaki Ninja H2R. The 998cc engine produces 300H.P of power which means that this superbike is capable of reaching just under two hundred and fifty miles an hour. To add strength to this immensely powerful machine the manufacturer used a trellis frame. This bike is the number one choice for many MotoGP riders, and also features a supercharger to add instant acceleration.
MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K
Marine Turbine Technologies have successfully been making non-production superbikes for some time now, and these machines have been reaching cult status for many bike enthusiasts all over the world. The Y2K was listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the most powerful production motorcycle, but it has now been overshadowed by the Kawasaki Ninja. However, this superbike can achieve speeds of nearly two hundred and thirty miles an hour from its turboshaft engine. It even features a Rolls-Royce engine so don’t expect this bike to be cheap.
If you prefer glamour with your speed, then take a look at the Suzuki Hayabusa. This beautifully designed machine also packs some power, and although the top speed is just shy of two hundred miles an hour the acceleration is breathtaking. The term Hayabusa is Japanese means PeregrineFalcon, which happens to be the fastest bird in the world. And on a good day this superbike could almost outmatch it feathered namesake. The liquid cooled engine has four cylinders and produces 197HP.
Honda CBR1 100XX Super Blackbird
This machine looks the business, it is mean and moody and growls at passersby. This is the fastest touring bike that Honda have ever produced and can quite happily reach speeds around one hundred and ninety miles an hour. The smoothness of the transmission is achieved by the dual counterbalance shaft. These incredible motorcycles are the fastest that you can buy and will certainly send heads spinning if you turned down your road riding one.
