Have you ever wanted to feel like a Hell’s Angel heading down the road on a really cool motorcycle? I know I have. They’re usually small and very fast, but some just aren’t – they’re just big and bad, and make other road users just want to get out of the way.
Here are the 3 biggest, baddest motorcycles that money can buy.
1. BMW R 1200 GS Adventure
The GS in this bike’s names stands for Gelande Straße, which is German for “off-road”. BMW’s biggest, baddest motorcycles have always been off-roaders, and this one is no exception. It’s quite heavy for an off-road bike, weighing in at 580 pounds, but it can manage off-piste roads thanks to heavy-duty suspension. The good thing about it is that it’s also at home on the highway.
2. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14
This ridiculous motorcycle from the land of the rising sun has a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine with – wait for it – 191 horsepower. On a bike! As you can imagine, the speed that this Ninja is capable of is utterly insane. It’ll accelerate to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds, cover a quarter-mile in under 10, and keep on accelerating until it reaches 186 mph.
3. Indian Chief Dark Horse
The Dark Horse is a 9-foot-long single-seater that weighs a hefty 800 pounds. What’s more is that it’s finished in a shade of black that actually seems to swallow up light, despite the fact that it would look just as imposing if it was painted bright pink. It also has a 1.8-liter engine that has enough horsepower and torque for it to tow a small boat.
