The Fastest Stock Sport Bike

Everyone has their own opinion and thought process when thinking about motorcycles. Some may think they are foolish, some may drool at the thought of riding one, and others may not simply give them a thought at all. If you are a person who has even remotely thought about motorcycles then you likely share one basic question in common with almost everyone at one point in time: What is the fastest bike out there?

For most of us, it is in our nature to be curious or interested in things that are out of our normal limits. Skydiving, fast cars, acrobatic stunts, and everything that falls beyond the realm of average life begs for our attention. Insanely fast sport bikes are no different and unless you are absolutely impartial to motorcycles, then you probably enjoy seeing a great bike at high speeds.

Ask anyone who has seen a professional MotoGP race if they are not impressed when the riders are constantly touching the ground with their knees only to swing the bike right back up and throttle em' to high speeds in a matter of seconds. You'd be hard pressed to find a person who is not even slightly amused at that kind of prowess.

The question still remains though, which is the fastest sport bike? Well there are super drag bikes that are made solely for the purpose of going extremely fast in a short amount of time, but those are special bikes built for only that type of event. For this assessment, I'm sticking with sport bikes that could be purchased by someone like you or me (well if money wasn't an issue of course). I'm also not taking into consideration, as the title suggests, any modifications on these bikes. Just stock motorcycles and their top speeds.

While there are a lot of fast sport bikes out there including the GSXR1000, CBR1000RR, NinjaZX-12R, and so many more there is one that stands above the rest. That is the BMW S1000RR. This motorcycle was designed for race purposes but ended up being commercially available. With a 1000cc inline-4 engine pumping out 193 horsepower this thing can go over 190mph! Pretty intense stuff but I guess that's what you get when you pay a hefty $16,000 price tag for such a powerful machine.

In the grand scheme of things I guess that isn't too bad if you are looking for pure power and speed, as there is a faster sport bike available, but it has limited production and costs $200,000 so I wouldn't really take that one into consideration. If you are interested though it is the MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K and is capable of going in the neighborhood of 230mph. I'm all for fast bikes but that is even a little too much for me!

Remember though, while these bikes have the potential to go tearing through the streets at top speed you likely wouldn't last long anywhere but on a closed race course so keep that in mind if you are looking for a bike based purely on speed.

It's 2012 and the beemer is still king I agree. It's really about the rider though. The best literbike rider will usually win unless it's only a top speed contest over a flying mile distance. Even then the better rider may reach 150 mph faster. I still can't get used to the asymmetrical headlight design of the S1Krr. The beemer isn't the lightest literbike either. It is supposed to have excellent ergos for the street. My next bike will be Italian. I'm looking forward the redesign of the Aprilia RSV4 Factory in '14.

I love speed and you make it more inviting. How I would love to own one, your $16000 price I can assure you is closer to R 230000 here in RSA, I can buy a good car for that price, and at 61 my wife would likely kick my ass if I even suggested it. Love your articles makes me fell young.
