When it comes to top speed it stands at a difference of 5 mph from BMW. Hopefully it’s quite a safe distance for BMW for few years to come as Ducati might stand at last in top 10 fastest bikes for a while.

On 25 September 2004, BMW globally launched a radically redesigned K Series motorcycle, the K 1200 S, containing an all new in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine featuring 123 kW (165 hp). After the launch of K 1200 S, BMW unveiled the K 1200 R naked roadster, and the K 1200 GT sport tourer. So that was our 9th of top 10 fastest

MTT has achieved the 3rd rank among the top 10 fastest bikes.

Suzuki Hayabusa

Standing 2nd in the list of top 10 fastest superbikes the name Hayabusa, translates directly from the Japanese as Pergerine Falcon, the bird commonly attributed of achieving speeds of over 200 mph (322 km/h) and predator of the common blackbird.

When introduced in 1999, Suzuki Hayabusa overtook the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the fastest production motorcycle.

New Cagiva bikes on Their Way?

We haven’t heard much from Varese since Harley-Davidson purchased Italian manufacturer Cagiva Group last year (including luxo-sport-bike marque MV Agusta). Harley-Davidson’s communications department doesn’t have much news of what’s going on over there, and Cagiva’s mouthpieces haven’t been tooting much, either. Other than announcing the retirement of design chieftain Massimo Tamburini, there have been no official announcements on Cagiva’s website hinting at what’s going on in that famous design studio.
But they’re working on something over there, according to our man in Italy, designer Oberdan Bezzi. Not much news about MV Agusta (although we have been hearing speculation about a three-cylinder 600 supersport machine), but Cagiva may have some things in the works. Oberdan has heard of development on two projects; a revamped Elefant adventure-tourer and a superbike, both utilizing the Rotax-built Helicon 1125 powerplant Buell uses in its new 1125R sportbike and 1125CR cafĂ© racer.

2010 Honda CB Twister

The 2010 Honda CB Twister turns up the heat in the Indian motorcycle market.
Honda’s fingers have firmly located the Indian biker’s pulse. It knows we can’t resist good-looking motorcycles. And that we must have durable quality, a reliable engine and unmatched fuel economy, all of which has to come home attractively priced.

Enter, the 109cc CB Twister, a commuter bike that looks like no other Indian commuter bike to date and has launched with Honda saying it has perfected every aspect of its new motorcycle. Read on and allow us to bring you our opinion on Honda’s new CB Twister.

Your eyes won’t believe they’re upon a commuter bike while viewing Honda’s CB Twister. Sharply styled with cues from the designed-in-Europe CB1000R, Honda’s new commuter motorcycle is cleanly styled without the clutter of many decals.

Much of its mass concentrates forward and close to its center of gravity. Six ‘V’ shaped spokes frame the CB’s attractive black alloy wheels, with this same shade coating much of the bike, including its front forks, handlebar, side and rear cowls, engine and stubby silencer. Honda is offering five metallic paint shades with its new bike.

BMW S1000RR – fast as cheetah

Motorcycle BMW S1000RR – fast as a cheetah. Such is the basic message of last advertising photosession of the Bavarian manufacturer.

BMW S1000RR – fast as a cheetah
In a series of a photo and videoclips appear girl-model Bonnie Steinhauser, a motorcycle of the specified mark, and also two cheetahs, to Caen and Bongo.

It is remarkable that neither in a roller, nor the motorcycle does not go by photos, and cheetahs do not run, i.e. nobody shows obviously the leading qualities. But also without that all it is clear, which basic line of the unrestrained motorcycles wished to show and underline in BMW.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11/ZZ-R1100

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11/ZZ-R1100 was produced from 1990-2001. It was marketed as the ZX-11 Ninja in North America and the ZZ-R1100 in the rest of the world.

This bike held the crown of The World's Fastest Production Bike for close to a decade with a record top speed of 283 km/h (176 mph).

When the bike was introduced in 1990, the nearest production bike top speed was 16 km/h (10 mph) slower and it belonged to the ZX-10, the bike that Kawasaki was replacing with the ZX-11.

  • Manufacturer - Kawasaki
  • Predecessor - Kawasaki ZX-10
  • Successor - ZZ-R1200/ZX-12R
  • Class - Sport Tourer
  • Engine - 1052 cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled
  • Power - 108 kW (147 PS) @ 10,500 rpm
  • Transmission - 6 speed
  • Yamaha YZF R1

    Lets discuss 5th position in the list of top 10 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-R1motorcycle, 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: Forward Inclined Parallel 4-cylinder, 20 valves, DOHC, liquid-cooled
    Top Speed: 186miles per hour (297 km/h)
    Power: 128.2 horsepower (95.6 kW) at 10000 rpm
