Motorcycles have a unique way of attracting people, especially men and some of the motorcycles listed below are currently the fastest available in the world. They are masterpieces, which is why owning one of these might compel you to be in a relationship with a machine.
The Supermodel BMW S1000RR
By just looking at the design of the BMW S1000RR, you get the impression that it has everything you see in a supermodel; the beautiful and aggressive look, a powerful roaring engine and the commanding presence when on the roads. The supermodel’s liquid-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine is capable of 199 bhp at 13,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 113 Nm at 10,500 rpm. Yet even with this level of aggressive performance, BMW has installed the standard Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) to add that grip for greater safety. The motorcycle has been even more refined with an optional accessory in the 2017 version with Ride Modes Pro, with its two individual modes – "Slick" and "User Mode" as well as cornering-optimized ABS Pro with lean-angle sensor which is why the S1000RR is like a top supermodel on the road as well as on the track.
The Perfect One – Ducati 1299 Superleggera
Ducati 1299 Superleggera is certainly the perfect bike that everyone desires so much but just a few can actually have it as only 500 units of this superbike is available. Superleggera in Italian means ‘superlight’ weighing in at a kerb weight of just 167 kg thanks to the full carbon fiber frame, swinging arm, sub frame and wheels. As for the engine and performance, Ducati 1299 Superleggera has a superquadro engine which means it has a 1285cc liquid cooled L-twin four-valve cylinder engine producing maximum power of 215 bhp at 11,000 rpm and maximum torque of 146.5 Nm at 9,000 rpm.
Size Does Matter – Suzuki Hayabusa
Bulky in appearance but powerful in terms of performance, Suzuki Hayabusa is a classic example of the phrase ‘Size does matter’. This superbike has a powerful 1340cc four-cylinder DOHC engine that employs EFI and a ram-air intake system. The Busa might feel like a heavy superbike but its kerb weight of 266 kg says otherwise. It’s all thanks to a lightweight, rigid twin-spar aluminum frame that the superbike is built on. Suzuki has said that the sleek, aerodynamic body work makes the Hayabusa appear to be slipping through the wind like a Peregrine Falcon. This beauty is certainly going to be catching the eyes of many.
The Evergreen Lady – Yamaha YZF-R1
Since Yamaha launched their first version of YZF-R1 in 1998, the model has just captured the hearts of superbike enthusiasts. Year after year as they launched new versions of the superbike, the love for YZF-R1 never faded. Even now with the latest 2017 version of the superbike, it has been able to capture various awards all around the world. It’s like an old actress turning more beautiful as she gets older. The 2017 version of the Evergreen lady runs in liquid-cooled four-cylinder DOHC forward inclined parallel engine which is capable of producing 198 bhp at 13.500 rpm and torque of 112.4 Nm at 11,500 rpm.
