Super bikes have always fascinated the minds of boys many ever since we were in school and we viewed MotoGP races or even ‘adults’ racing away on their mean machines. Having a poster on your bedroom wall and aspiring to own your dream bike is all what super bikes and now hyper bikes are all about. Lets look at some of the most amazing machines that you would consider selling your soul to ride.
This bike needs no introduction. The Hayabusa was the fastest production bike in the world for a long time, a cult and still being produced with the performance demanding more and more takers.
MV Agusta F4 1000R
This liquid cooled MV Agusta is what revived the MV Agusta name in 1998. It was nothing but perfection with a howling sound when you hit the top speed and in 2006, the company decided to perfect their creation by launching the MV Agusta F4 1000R. They really do know how to push the boundaries of what is possible.
Harley Davidson V-Rod
Being produced since 2001, this mean cruiser is one of the top models of all time by Harley Davidson. The V comes from the twin engines that are placed to look like a V plus its exhaust pipe also forms a beautiful V shape to cater to the engine exhausts and also appeal to the artistic critics of these mean hogs.
Yamaha YZF R1
There is a very good reason for this bike still being produced with upgrades coming almost each year from its first launch in 1998, it is an amazing attack on your senses which will keep you addicted for more and more.
Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird
The fastest production bike of its time, the CBR 1100XX Blackbird was made to topple the crown of the Kawasaki ZX-11 from the fastest bike in the world’s position, which it did only to be de-throned a couple of years later by the Suzuki Hayabusa.
Aprilia RSV 1000R Mille
Even though it may look like one of those bikes you rode in Road Rash and kind of looks like one too, this bike that was last produced in 2003 maintains a mean attitude with peak performance and superior stability.
Triumph Bonneville T100
The T100 ‘Bonnie’ has been around for a while now with 650 special edition 50th anniversary units sold in 2009. These bikes have individual numbering in brass to signify the authenticity of these bikes.
Revived by Polaris in 2011, The Indian brand of motorcycles is arguably like a pumped up version of Harley Davidson cruisers. The Chieftain is the meanest cruiser that The Indian name produces and it is a brut.
Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom
After the Ducati Diavel, this is the perfect successor to the throne of the best cruising bike you can lay your hands on. With ABS and traction control it feels modern but the ride retains the joy of all the mechanical harmony.
This bike is so insane that the term hyper bike was coined to place it and the Suzuki Hayabusa. This truly is the bike that all the other bikes strive to become someday.
Ducati 848 Streetfighter
Like the name of the bike, it has a very muscular look like its meant for duels in the street and maybe that’s why has ruled the streets from 2009.
The dual purpose motorcycle is one of the best that money can buy and with the BMW badge, it means that the bike will really have a fight with the elements when you choose to take it for off-road touring.
It may have been out in 2007 but even 7 years later, it continues to demand respect mainly for its performance and stunning looks.
