Have you ever thought about what is the fastest motorcycle in the world? We’re talking not about just fast motorcycles but about the most powerful and mega fast bikes able to speed up to unbelievable 220 mph. We’ve collected the list of top 15 fastest bikes of 2023, including legendary Dodge Tomahawk with incredibly powerful engine 500 HP at 5600 RPM.
Motorcycles, don’t we just love them? The faster they get, the more our hearts pound. They have the power to make the manliest of man, into a little boy. They just have that undefinable sense of excitement we all want and beg for. However, with the plethora of bikes out there, the right one is often hard to pick.
Fastest Motorcycles in the World
When it comes to speed, bikes on the road are second to none. Fastest car in the world – Devel Sixteen – has a fantastic speed of 348 MPH, which is incredibly fast, but still less than the speed of the world’s fastest bike. Which one exactly? Keep reading the article and you’ll find out. You will also find out why bikes can be so fast and what is the main secret of their incredible speed.
15. 2007 BMW K1200S: 170 mph
If the bike at number 10 is this fast, you know what to expect from the rest. BMW designed this bike to be light weight and agile, thus making it extremely easy to handle. The power house of this bike, i.e. its engine is a 1157 CC four cylindered inline with an inbuilt transmission. The engine is mounted diagonally and this ensures a low center of gravity. This bike can go from zero to sixty in just 3.2 seconds. The breaks on this bike are very effective. Its EVO brakes coupled with the partially integrated BMW Motorrad integral ABS is what gives it its greatness. The bike achieves a max power of 164 HP at 10250 RPM and max torque of 129 Nm at 8250 RPM.
14. Aprilia RSV 1000 Mille R: 178 mph
This bike was manufactured during 1998 – 2000, what makes the Mille (1000 in Italian) special is that it is still very much in use. This bike runs on a 998 CC liquid cooled engine (with electronic fuel injection). Further, the engine has a Rotex V-twin installed at 60 degrees, making it more compact. However, this leaves it more prone to vibrations, which are countered by Aprilia’s ADVC (Anti Vibration Double Countershaft). This bike is extremely smooth in its running and can go from zero to sixty in just 3.1 seconds. The Aprilia RSV 1000R Mille when released exceeded everyone’s expectation and achieves a max power of 141.3 HP at 10000 RPM and max torque at 107 Nm at 5500 RPM.
13. Suzuki GSX1300 R Hayabusa: 194 mph
1340cc. It is a four-cylinder , short-stroke, DOHC, 16-valve engine that truly lives up to its hype. The Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve ensures peak engine performance at all times. This bike gives you the leverage to tweak its settings to its optimal with the ride-by-wire system combined with the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector. The Suzuki Hayabusa hits 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and its clutch assists system, i.e. the Suzuki Clutch Assist System, helps reduce back torque. It hits its max power of 197 HP at 6750 RPM.
12. Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird: 190 mph
The blackbird is a revival bike that left its glorious past to make a better one. With some little tweaks to the previous one launched in 1996, its back to its former glory, if not better. Packing an 1137 CC liquid cooled inline four cylindered engine, speed is at its beck and call. The higher the RPM the smoother this bike can go. Hitting 0-60 in about 2.8 seconds, the Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird is a precision instrument meant for speed. What it may lack in ride quality it makes up for in build and reliability. It hits it the max power of 153 HP at 10000 RPM.
11. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R Supersport: 195 mph
This bike is simply amazing and we’re sure you’ll be wondering why this is at 7 th . Simply because there are faster bikes. However, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R Supersport looks like a beast, let’s make it clear. Not many bikes can compare with this one on the looks and form factor. However, looks aren’t what we’re interested in. It’s the beast inside the beast, the engine. 1441 CC of power with an inline-four moto gives the bike its zip. The three-level traction control system is helpful to get the bike under control quickly. The best part of the bike, however, is the fact that even on gear 6, at speeds of 50-60, the bike runs smooth. This bike goes from 0-60 in just 2.6 seconds and hits it a max power of 108kW at 10500 RPM.
10. Ducati Panigale V4 R: 199 mph
Ducati Panigale V4 R is as close to a racing prototype as you get, and that heady mix of Italian style, sophistication, and performance makes for a seriously potent motorcycle. The beating heart of the Panigale V4 R is the Desmosedici Stradale R engine: a 998cc V4 that produces 221 horsepower and 91 lb-ft of torque. Those figures are already incredible, but that’s for the bike wearing street legal trim. The peak power jumps to a fearsome 234 horses at 15,500 rpm. And all in a package that weighs only 365 lbs.
9. Damon Hypersport Pro: 200 mph
Damon Hypersport Pro is an electric bike that combines the sportbike and standard into a high-performance package with the most advanced tech you can find on the market. The Hypersport features two electronically-configurable riding positions that move the seat, footpegs, windscreen, and handlebars from tucked-up superbike to upright standard at the touch of a button. Damon’s industry-first AI-enhanced safety system, called CoPilot, uses two cameras and haptic feedback in the handlebars to alert the rider to surrounding traffic conditions. The center display screen can show the view from the front or rear cameras taking the guesswork and danger out of riding. But if all that isn’t enough to sway potential buyers, the performance specs will – 200 horsepower, 200 miles of range, and a top speed of 200 MPH.
8. Ducati 1199 Panigale R: 202 mph
The Ducati Panigale 1199 R is one of the most wanted supersport models in its class and fastest Duati motorcycle. The motorcycle is especially appreciated for its top notch driving dynamics, the strong engine and its state of the art technologies. The 1199 Panigale gets a liquid cooled, L-Twin engine which Ducati claims is the most powerful twin-cylinder production engine on the planet. The engine, as a matter of fact, produces 195bhp of power and 132Nm of torque. The motorcycle is built around an aluminum monocoque frame and gets semi floating 330mm Brembo discs at the front and a 245mm disc at the back. Additionally, it also features a slipper clutch and 10-spoke lightweight alloys. The 1199 is equipped with Marzocchi’s lightweight aluminium front forks and Sachs rear suspension unit. This model also gets the Ducati traction control system and power maps for the engine combined with Ducati’s riding modes.
7. Kawasaki Ninja H2R: 222 mph
This one is another beast in the form of a bike. With a 998CC liquid cooled, 4 stroke , in-line four, DOHC, 16-valve engine this thing can go fast, and we mean fast! Due to its speed, Kawasaki managed to install an electronic rider support suite. It has the KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control), KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System), KEBC (Kawasaki Engine Brake Control) and KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode). These, apart from protection, keep the bike running smooth. The Kawasaki Ninja H2R hits 60 in a mere 2.5 seconds. Now that is fast! The bike hits it max power of 197.3 bHP at 11,000 RPM.
6. Lightning LS-218: 218 mph
The Lightning LS-218 is an electric motorcycle engineered, designed and produced in America by Lightning Motorcycle, that has been in production since 2014. It has held the title of the world’s fastest street-legal production electric motorcycle since 2014. It has a top speed of 218 mph, 200 horsepower, and produces 168 foot-pounds of torque. And, since it’s all-electric, you can get your kicks on it without polluting the environment.
5. MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K: 227 mph
This bike is one of the most powerful production motorcycles. This beauty features the Rolls-Royce 250-C18 turboshaft engine with a 2-speed semi-automatic transmission. This bike can get from 0-60 in just 2.5 seconds. That’s probably the time you took to finish reading this sentence at the normal pace of reading. Go ahead, try it. The MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K hits its max power of 320 HP at 52000 RPM.
4. MTT 420-RR: 273 mph
MTT produced not only the first turbine-powered street legal motorcycle, but also one of the most powerful production bikes in the world: the MTT Y2K Superbike. It has all the standard features of previous versions, but with a larger swing arm, Pirelli Diablo 240 rear tire, increased fuel capacity and an enhanced cooling system. This new generation is equipped with a 420 HP turbine with approximately 500 ft/lbs of torque.
3. MV Agusta F4 1000R: 298 mph
1000 CC of raw power is what drives this bike forward and makes it a heartthrob among bikers. The handling on this bike is gorgeous, cutting through corners like a knife does butter. It has a short stroke motor and a light crankshaft, making sure that acceleration is never a problem. This bike clocks 0-60 in just about 2.7 seconds and that just shows you how fast it can go. The 8-level traction control on it gives you the ability for great handling even at such speeds. The MV Agusta F4 1000R achieves a max power of 174 HP and max torque of 115 Nm at 10000 RPM.
2. 2023 BMW S1000 RR: 299 mph
Question – How fast are these bikes going to get? This bike carries a 999 CC 16-valve motor engine with a new intake cam and lighter inlet valves as compared to its predecessor. The BMW S1000 is designed for speed, with a really light frame. The weight of this fastest BMW bike is 4kgs lesser than the previous one and has the updated semi-active suspension pack of the HP4’s Dynamic Damping Control. The BMW S1000 RR can go 0-60 in 2.7 seconds. Even at these speeds, the new power curve on the bike allows for turning to be nice and easy. Features like ABS, cruise control etc. show that the bike is street friendly too. It reaches its max power of 206.5 bHP at 13750 RPM.
1. World’s Fastest Bike Dodge Tomahawk: 350 mph
Even cars have a hard time keeping up with such raw speed. This superbike carries within it an 8277CC 10 valve, four stroke engine that is simply a dream. The dodge tomahawk has four wheels and each of them has its own suspension. Also, this is the same engine found in the Dodge Viper, ( 8.3-liter V10 Dodge Viper SRT10). The transmission on this bike is a two-speed manual toe shift and uses the traditional chain and sprocket system. The place that was supposed to house the headlights is actually a throttle intake and the bike also has a cooling system placed behind the intake manifold. The Dodge Tomahawk has no rival to this day, however, due to its four wheels and a few other reasons the bike isn’t certified for legal use in the USA. It can clock 0-60 somewhere in between 1.75 – 2.5 seconds and hits its max power of 500 HP at 5600 RPM.

My Turbo Busa will dumpster each and every single one of these motorcycles. Busa is the king of bikes and the best looking. Most aerodynamic motorcycle in the world. The heavy weight of it makes it a land missile. Nothing can hold as solid as a Busa going warp speed.
I remember my Yamaha 1100 in 1979 and get 140mph and the ferring would lift front on bike very light steering scare me and slowed down
are you kiding?
i thought that H2r will be number 1
You are all so funny going on about Busa and H2R and ZX14, but that’s all about speed in a stretch road, now put them in twisties and add a Blackbird and you will throw your toys away and change your mind.
i thought h2r the 3rd the mtt bikes just makes for drag race and the agusta not after the h2r
this list not true
Dodge is not in production
It has for wheels which really and truly makes it a very narrow automobile with a motorcycle seat and handle bars on it on it . You could do the same with a rail job dragster by putting 4 wheels close together like this and putting a motorcycle seat and handle bars on it and classify it as being a funny car or dragster .right?
Which ones are faster than the Lightning LS-218 ?
who are the Kawasaki fans here
You did no research!, you did not even include the LIGHTNING LS-218 it’s faster than most of the bikes on the page at 218mph!
hayabusa is the best and TOM HAWAKH is fuke
All this about which bike is faster. That will be a thing of the past when battery powered super bikes leave them all standing. Just as Tesla has left all but the best hyper cars standing in 0-60. The world is changing and petrol engines are finished.
My son, only child had a ninja, he was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2019, age 32…. yeah, thank you for fast motorcycle!! Make sure you make them as fast as they can break a person in a hundred pieces on the side of the road.
Can’t blame the bike, I’m sorry for your loss ?
ok first of all sooooo sorry for your loss. like sooooooooooooooooo sorry. but we are here to view bikes.
Sad for your loss but any motorcycle can be lethal. It’s in the responsibility of the rider to choose a bike fitting to his skill level. And sometimes, the unavoidable happens, like an oil patch or a drunk driver.
%100 agree with your comment. Then you also have those people that either don’t know, don’t think or straight up don’t care and mow grass out into the road to get someone killed.
You don’t blame the road when you make a mistake and slide a bike. I crashed three times in three decades. In every instance I was root cause. Roads, trees, and other hard objects do not think. Same applies to bikes. There is only one person in control—who makes all the decisions—and therefore owns all consequences. You must know the limits of your skill. You truly hold your life on your hands. No machine that functions as designed is ever guilty of executing its rider free will. We take risks. We own them.
When I mishandled my former GSXR1300 and ended up with duel knee surgery, the fault was mine, and only mine. Unlike us humans, bikes have no volition, nor do they think. We do. Don’t blame a machine for what it is unable to do.
I’m sorry your child died but no one forced him onto the bike. Every time we get on one we KNOW the risks. You’re grieving. We feel for you. But it is not the manufacturers fault. We make choices. I’m sorry his ended the way it did.
I am very sorry for your loss, I have lost many friends to fast bikes. I have ridden bikes since I was 13 and am now 64. My last bike was a hyabusa 1300 gsxr. Top speed 185, 0-60 about 2.6 sec. I have had it up to 140. You cant blame the manufacturers for deaths. You either ride or you dont. EVERY time I swing my leg over my bike I know exactly what I am doing. I practice safe riding habits. I use my signal and I dont zig zag in between traffic. I do however, worry about the idiots behind me because they are the ones that are dangerous, texting, talking on the phone NOT paying attention to the one thing they should be doing and that is driving. Im sure your son knew the consequences EVERY time he went out, we all know the dangers of riding but when you love to ride as much as we do, you take your chances and pray you come back in one piece. Its just like a gun you cant blame the gun for killing someone only the person pulling the trigger. Same for bikes, no one is twisting your arm to ride. Oh yea did I tell you I am a woman who rides one of the fastest street bikes there is. Yes I worry about getting killed but that is MY choice!
Carole, Like anything that man/woman comes in contact with there are risk. I remember a story from my childhood that a mother wanted to teach her daughter a lesson and made her eat a bowl of sugar. The little girl died as a result of the sugar overload on her system. Bikes, Cars, Gun, Skis, Canoes, Ladders, Alcohol, Swimming, Scuba Diving, Flying, Parachuting, Crossing the street. There isn’t a thing out there that hasn’t killed man woman or child. I feel for your loss. It wouldn’t matter if the bike was restricted to 60 miles an hour or 200 miles an hour. Using the motorcycle the correct way and in a responsible fashion is just about the only way the rider can come back safely. Your son may have thought he knew better but in the end he may have neglected to factor in other conditions or failed on some other way. As a man of 65 who has driven YEAR ROUND in the Canadian weather I can tell you this. If you drive the bike responsibly you come home safe.
im sorry to hear ur loss but the bikes arent built to go fast for them to be riden at them speeds they are built that fast for the possibility, and luxury for you to go them speeds
Carol I’ve lost a few friends and family members to bike accidents! I feel the pain you have but we all have a decision to ride a bike and enjoy the freedom of the road and the power of a bike underneath us! There’s Nothing that can come close to the experience of riding! And a fast bike can’t change the fact that one don’t have to use the power and ride safely and don’t speed. Accidents happen! You can’t blame the bike!!! If that’s possible then I’ve gotta sue playboy for my tennis elbow!
You forget the H2 Kawasaki it topped out at 227 and the Suzuki hayabusa which topped out at 248 mph
I’m sorry to hear about your Sons death but sadly at times we make the wrong decisions and sadly some are not as deadly by the grace of God but he made the choice to speed excessively and it was on purpose knowingly breaking the law doing so ,so unfortunately it cost him his own life but blaming any motorcycle company for his death is like blaming all gun makers for the death on innocent people shot by some criminals with a gun
.Now the person who had made a bad choice to have and use a gun for the soul purpose to be used for criminal offenses so like with motorcycles the gun manufacturers have no control over the misuse and abuse by anyone despite any laws they have ever passed. Now fact no words wrote on paper will not ever stop a persons careless intent to abuse the law’s as many still do as they please..now fact cars or rather car drivers cause 10x more innocent innocent per year than anything else but they make fast with no complaints unless it was a fast car he was driving to fast then of course it’s the manufacturers fault was speeding . We make our own destiny or at times our untimely demise if we chose to break the law’s that are wrote to help protect us from our own had choices.
Sorry for your loss that’s horrible I’m sure for any mother. However it’s not the bike or the bike makers fault this happened to your son. Most riders are already fully aware of the power their bike is capable of. 1 not many are going to dog their bikes to death and wear them out faster, just to test its limits because they love it. 2 there is always those few that get the hang of riding and get to comfortable with the bike. Once they get to comfortable each time they ride they get faster and faster. Then one day they get on the bike now they are so comfortable and have already been pushing it faster each time. Then they put to much trust in the bike and their abilities to handle it. All common sense and fear of it go out the window and they push it faster and faster for the adrenaline rush and excitement and go to fast before they’ve realized it and can’t gain control back. My husband owns a super blackbird it started out with to much fear and respect for what it was capable of. Now his had it over a year and gotten comfortable and over confident on it going faster than I’d like him to. I’m going to suggest to any wives, mothers and anyone else out there that has close loved ones that ride motorcycles download the life360 app onto your phone and have your loved to do the same. Having this app on our phones so you’ll always know exactly where each other are, alerts you to if they’ve been in a accident with the free version and with the paid version it’ll also alert 911 and give the exact location they are in. This is how I keep up with if my husband is getting to brave and needs a butt chewing for going to fast which thankfully keeps him in check on not letting common sense fail him. It really does ease the worry unless they also have seizures to worry you to death.
I like kawasaki ninja zx 14r
Never hayabusa is not faster than h2r. What rubbish this is .h2r come behind dodge
I love that Kawasaki ninja so much
Wrong, the non- speed limited Suzuki Hayabusa was produced for two years (1999 and 2000). Top speed194 MPH. That was fast 20 years ago. Faster and quicker than either the 1200 Kawasaki and Honda Blackbird.
Here it’s actually about the Hayabusa Turbo . Check its top speed on Google you’ll get the match
Put a turbo on a Blackbird and all youn will see is its tail disappearing on the horizon. bye Hayabusa toy
My BF owned 2 of them and it prompted me to get one too, cuz my silly little ninja 500 could not keep up with him when we would ride together. He would be a mile down the rode and I have the throttle to the floor. It was very frustrating to ride when I had no power. Thats when I said I need one and let me say OMFG was I exited when I first drove it. My first night him and I were racing one another I had it up to 140 and never drove anything over 1000 and that was just a Harley sportster. I loved my 2001 Hayabusa. I now know the meaning of “Its better than sex” cause when you twist that throttle and you go from 70 to 110 in a split second there is just NO other feeling accept maybe pulling a few Gs in a F15. The adrenaline rush alone is awesome!
Where is the ZX12r?Busa ‘s record was only based on one year because they snuck an unrestricted bike in before all the major manufacturers agreed to limit top speed because they feared the bikes would be banned for sale in Europe as there were concerns raised about top speeds being excessive..
Your info is wrong. You did zero research. Dodge did 350mph where and when? Suzuki did 248?
No independent road tests of the Tomahawk have ever been published, and the company said that in internal testing it was never ridden above 100 mph
197 BHP is the power produced without a supercharger.
With the supercharger, it produces a peak power of 308.88 BHP @14400 rpm.
The dodge tomahawk had 4 wheels that makes it a car
I also prefer busa 2 h2r
No independent road tests of the Tomahawk have ever been published, and the company said that in internal testing it was never ridden above 100 mph (160 km/h). Hand-built replicas of the Tomahawk were offered for sale through the Neiman Marcus catalog at a price of US$555,000, and up to nine might have sold. As they were not street legal, Dodge called the Tomahawk a “rolling sculpture”, not intended to be ridden.
The h2r can go 400kmh (248mph)
But that is top speed in perfect environment. In real life that thing has top speed is 375km/h
So what here we talk about top speed not about environment.If environment will also included then hayabusa will not be in the 2nd position
Yes, at the Osman Gazi Bridge in Turkey. It took 26 seconds to reach the 400 kph Top speed.
H2r is way faster than hayabusa
Where is the Panigale? I think you may need to revise.
I have a H2R, and i had upgraded that bike for 4 times, that can reach 100km/h just in 2.5s but that thing always lose Hayabusa has no upgrade. I think you need to learn more about Motorcycle. And the Electric motor Energica Ego can win H2R in 1km drag race 🙂
They are all fast bikes that I grant you, but if your going to put stats up lets get them right eh?
Production bikes…… well there are bikes missing and times – speeds are wrong. Stock ugly pants Hayabusa does not do 248 and zzr1400 0 to 60 is 2.5.
Not correct ranking… Busa don’t go 248mph… 100 Lower bhp going 30mph faster is questionable. Moreover Ninja H2R is a 300+ bhp bike not 197… Where you getting these crappy stats…. H2R is probably rank 2 busa goes way back…. Check sources.
Biased, R1 missing.. ??
I love Suzuki Hayabusa it’s looking cool.
Agree, and it is the fastest – that one they listed as number 1 is a modified vehicle – and has 4 wheels – Motorcycle is classified as 2 wheel driven. So sorry boys. Hayabuse remains number 1.
Its completely wrong the hayabusa isent even close to winning the h2r this stats are just wrong and could see that this people just agreed wich motorcycle looks the fastest
i agreeeeeeeeeeee soooo much
Actually, the H2R is faster bud, so sorry, maybe you need to do your research.
