Top 10 fastest bikes, hopefully we’ll be impressing the boys with this post. Here is an exhaustive list of top 10 fastest superbikes.

If you’re about own anyone please do let us know how it feels to ride them. Here goes top 10 fastest bikes in the world.

07. Yamaha YZF R1
Engine: Forward Inclined Parallel 4-cylinder, 20 valves, DOHC, liquid-cooled
Lets discuss 7th position in the list of top 10 current fastest bikes in the world. Yamaha launched the YZF-R1 after redesigning the Genesis engine to offset the crankshaft, gearbox input and output shafts and this “compacting” of the engine yielded a huge dividend in that the total engine length was now very short. The Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle, introduced in 1998, was the first significant motorcycle in the true liter class (1,000 cc) “handling arms race” between the Japanese Big Four motorcycle manufacturers (Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha). When introduced, it took the class closer to a true racing motorcycle, and increased the handling capabilities. May be some more improvements it might push it further to the top among the top 10 fastest bikes in the world.

Engine: 90° V-twin cylinder, 4-valve per cylinder Desmodromic, liquid cooled

Engine: 1340 cc (82 cu in), 4-stroke, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC,

The name Suzuki Hayabusa is a subtle reference to Honda’s competing Hawk models. When introduced in 1999, Suzuki Hayabusa overtook the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the fastest production motorcycle. The first generation of the Hayabusa was called the GSX1300R and was powered by a 1299 cc (79.2 cu in) inline-4 liquid-cooled engine.
