5 Fastest Bikes In The World

Bikes traditionally scored over their four wheeled counterparts for having a phenomenal power to weight ratio. This allowed them to out accelerate the super cars although they lacked the punch in the top speed. Over the last decade though the cars have pulled back and now in many cases even accelerate faster than the super bikes. Nonetheless, an experience on a super bike or in a super car is different and has a charm of its own. If we doubt that we should ask Tom Cruise, the owner of many a super cars and bikes.

Before going on to rank the bikes, it is worthwhile to mention that just like the super cars the bikes too keep exchanging their positions for top speed and acceleration. So this list is valid as of now since I keep updating it.


1. Dodge Tomahawk

The current number one position is held by a concept bike coming from the Dodge stable. Its enormous engine and power will put a road car to shame. The Tomahawk is a concept and the buyers, whoever they are, cannot ride it, strictly. Dodge can sell the bike only and they have no permission to sell the transmission for the bike. It is a bike which has close resemblance to Batman’s mobike and owners would be happy that it does not need a stand nor do they have to balance it on their limbs when in standstill. To do that even Batman would have wished he was Superman. Have a look.

Top Speed: 298.14 mph (480 km/hr) [Estimated]

Engine: 1275 cc

HP: 500 hp

Torque: 712 N-m

Price: US $ 550,000

Acceleration: Not Available


2. MTT Streetfighter

This super bike comes in at number two and is actually the fastest commercial bike. The Streetfighter is a version of the MTT Turbine Super Bike, from the Rolls Royce stable.

Top Speed: 248.45 mph (400 km/hr)

Engine: 249 cc, Gas Turbine

HP: 420 hp

Torque: 678 N-m

Price: US $ 175,000

Acceleration: Not Available


3. MTT Turbine Superbike

The original version from the Rolls Royce stable, the MTT Turbine sports an engine which was earlier powering jets.

Top Speed: 230 mph (370.3 km/hr)

Engine: 249 cc, Gas Turbine

HP: 320 hp

Torque: 578 N-m

Price: US $ 200,000

Acceleration: Not Available


4. BMW S1000RR

The BMW S1000RR, earlier, had toppled the Suzuki Hayabusa to take the top spot. At the moment, though, it is the third fastest commercial bike and fourth overall.

Top Speed: 201.86 mph (325 km/hr)

Engine: 999 cc, in-line 4, 4 stroke engine

HP: 193 hp

Torque: 112 N-m

Price: US $ 14,000

Acceleration: 0-60 in 2.4 sec

Taking reference of one of our earlier points of super cars being as fast as super bikes. We see that the 0-60 acceleration of the BMW S1000RR is as good as Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s acceleration, which both achieve in 2.4 seconds.


5. Suzuki Hayabusa

The erstwhile number one bike is now been pushed to the second spot. Hayabusa means “Falcon” in Japanese, which preyed on the black birds. This naming was also a pot shot at the Honda’s black bird series which were the fastest bike till then.

Top Speed: 198.76 mph (320 km/hr)

Engine: 1340 cc, in-line 4, 4 stroke engine

HP: 162 hp

Torque: 135 N-m

Price: US $ 13,500

Acceleration: 0-60 in 2.6 seconds
