Aprilia RSV Mille 1000 R Nera

The Fastest Motorcycles in The World

Feb 28th, 2010

Here is a list of the fastest motorcycles in the world. It’s amazing how fast something can move with only two wheels. Enjoy.

9. BMW K1200S 167 mhh (268 km/h)

On 25 September 2004, BMW globally launched a radically redesigned K Series motorcycle, the K1200S, containing an all new in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine featuring 123 kW (165 hp). The K1200S was primarily designed as a Super Sport motorcycle, albeit larger and heavier than the closest Japanese competitors. Shortly after the launch of the K1200S, problems were discovered with the new power plant leading to a recall until the beginning of 2005, when corrective changes were put in place. Recently, a K1200S set a land speed record for production bikes in its class at the Bonneville Salt Flats, exceeding 174 mph (280 km/h). – wikipedia.org

8. Ducati 1098s 169 mph (271 km/h)

The Ducati 1098 is a super bike manufactured by the Italian motorcycle company Ducati since 2007. There were three different versions, called the 1098, 1098S, and 1098R. The first two models were replaced by a successor model, the Ducati 1198, that was introduced in 2009.

  The 1098 shares more design elements with the older 998 than with its predecessor the 999, such as horizontally placed headlights and a non-integrated exhaust system. Another carryover from its 916/998 heritage is the single-sided swingarm. – wikipedia.org

7. Aprilia RSV 1000R Mille 175mph (281 km/h)

The Aprilia RSV 1000 R is a super bike motorcycle manufactured by Aprilia from 2004 through 2008. Along with the bike’s redesign Aprilia renamed the RSV from RSV Mille to RSV 1000 R. It is offered in three versions: RSV 1000 R (while the R designation on the RSV Mille signified the higher spec version) is the standard version, the higher spec version is the RSV 1000 R Factory, and Aprilia made a limited edition version called RSV 1000 R Nera. – wikipedia.org

6. Yamaha YZF R1 176mph (283 km/h)

In late 2008 Yamaha announced they would release an all new R1 for 2009. The new R1 takes engine technology from the M1 Motogp bike with its cross plane crankshaft, the first ever production motorcycle to do so. Crossplane technology, puts each connecting rod 90° from the next, with an uneven firing interval of 270°- 180°- 90°- 180°.

The idea of this technology is to reduce internal crankshaft torque, thus giving the new R1 a more linear power delivery. Yamaha claims the bike would give the rider ‘two engines in one’, the low torque of a twin and the pace of an inline four. As with previous incarnations of the R1 the 2009 model keeps its YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle). The R1 is now rated at 182 PS @ 12,500rpm at the crankshaft (without ram-air). – wikipedia.org

5. Honda CBR 1100XX Super Blackbird 178mph (286 km/h)

In the mid 1990’s, Honda Motorcycles were determined to produce the world’s fastest production motorcycle and to take over the associated bragging rights and marketing impact, at the time held by Kawasaki with its ZZ-R 1100. This led to the creation of the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird which was released to the market as a 1996 model and achieved a verifiable 177 mph (285 kph). The Blackbird name is a nod to the Lockheed SR-71 aircraft, once the world’s fastest aircraft. – wikipedia.org

4. MV Agusta F4 1000 R 185 mph (299 km/h)

The MV Agusta F4 was the motorcycle that launched the resurrection of MV Agusta in 1998. The F4 was created by famous motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini at CRC (Cagiva Research Center), following his work on the Ducati 916. The F4 is unique with its four pipe undertail exhaust, single-sided swingarm, large front forks (49 or 50 mm diameter) and traditional MV Agusta red and silver livery. The F4 is also one of the only production superbikes to have a radial valved engine. – wikipedia.org

3. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 (ZZR1400) 186 mph (300 km/h)

The ZZR1400 (Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 in North America) is a hyper sport motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries and is currently their most powerful sport bike. It was introduced at the Tokyo 2005 show and released for the 2006 model year as a replacement for the ZX-12R. Its direct competitor in the hyper sport segment is the Suzuki Hayabusa.

The ZZR1400 is capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (299 km/h). This limit has been in effect on both Kawasaki and Suzuki sport motorcycles since 2001 when both companies realized that the speed war between them would only serve to bring about government regulation. – wikipedia.org

2. Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 190 mph (305 km/h)

The Suzuki Hayabusa (or GSX1300R) is a hyper sport motorcycle made by Suzuki since 1999. It immediately won acclaim as the world’s fastest production motorcycle, with a top speed of 188–194 miles per hour (303–312 km/h).  Hayabusa is Japanese for Peregrine Falcon, a bird that often serves as a metaphor for speed due to its vertical hunting dive, or stoop, speed of 180 to 240 miles per hour (290 to 390 km/h), the fastest of any bird. In particular, the choice of name was made due to the fact that the peregrine falcon preys on blackbirds, which reflected the intent of the original Hayabusa to unseat the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the world’s fastest production motorcycle. – wikipedia.org

1. MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K 227 mph (365 km/h)

MTT Turbine Superbike (often styled SUPERBIKE, also known as Y2K Turbine SUPERBIKE, is the world’s second wheel-driven motorcycle powered by a turbine engine, created by Ted McIntyre of Marine Turbine Technologies Inc.  Reports of the MTT Turbine SUPERBIKE appeared as early as 1999 in a May issue of Cafe Racer magazine, but the production model was introduced in 2000.  Powered by a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 turboshaft engine, producing 238 kW (320 hp), the motorcycle has a recorded top speed of 227 mph (370 km/h), with a price tag of US$150,000 (US$185,000 in 2004). – wikipedia.org
