Few vehicles can match the fun of a powerful motorcycle. There are many categories of bikes because many factors can classify motorcycles. Supersport bikes, for example, are designed and developed specifically to reach crazy speeds on the roads and perform impressive turns even in the steepest corners. Adventure bikes, on the other hand, can be used on and off-road, and the list goes on and on.
Another categorization consists in distinguishing motorcycles according to the displacement of their engine and their power. Given this, bikes around 125cc and 400c are in the small tier, bikes between 500cc and 800cc go on the medium tier, and beasts over 900cc are in the hardcore tier. So, let’s take a look at the top ten options that have everyone wanting a top-notch product!
ten Yamaha tracer 900
Japanese Yamaha’s Tracer 900 is one of the most famous sport-touring motorcycles in history. The entire Tracer family of bikes is known for its reliability and beautiful design. In the new models, we notice many cool additions that improve the appearance.
These bikes are designed for long trips and in general for easy and comfortable transportation. For a sport touring bike in this class, the Yamaha Tracer 900 is the best option for most.
9 Honda CBR1000RR
We warn you that most of the entries on the list are bikes like the Honda CBR 1000RR, and they are supersport bikes. The specific model is probably the fastest and most famous conventional superbike from the Japanese company.
Due to their popularity, there are a ton of CBR 1000RRs or CBR 1000Rs that you can find on the used market. The fastest models in the series can reach a top speed of 300 km/h! Extraordinary, right?
8 Yamaha YZF R-1
We’ve said it many times, but we’ll say it again: the YZF series is worth an entry in every list with motorcycles. The R1 and R1M are even more powerful than the newly developed R6 and R7. We are now talking about power in series.
With a 190 horsepower engine, the Yamaha R1 can reach the impressive top speed of 192 mph! The series has undergone many design changes, but the new models remain very attractive.
seven Suzuki GSX-R1000
The GSX-R1000 might not be the most attractive motorcycle out there, but it’s super reliable and fast. With its 220 horsepower engine and unique styling, a GSX-R1000 stands out from miles away. The supersport motorcycle is now in its third generation.
Suzuki is known for making some of the fastest motorcycles in the world. With the GSX-R1000, the company offers the best possible power and speed. The speedometer can reach 190 mph easily.
6 Yamaha MT-10
Yes, we know: Yamaha produces a bunch of different series of awesome bikes. With the exception of the Tracer and the YZF, the MT is also amazing. The bare family of beautiful MT bikes has gained worldwide popularity over the past few years as its exterior has undergone huge upgrades.
Besides the MT-10, which comes with 165 hp and an engine with a displacement of 1000 cc, the MT-9 is also a great option. Although the engine of this model produces only 850 cc. This amount is certainly powerful, but it does not fit in our list! The MT-10 can reach a top speed of 165 miles per hour! Not bad for a naked bike.
5 KTM 1290 Super Adventure
The KTM 1290 Super Adventure is certainly the Austrian company’s most famous motorcycle. With a displacement of 1300cc, this bike can literally kill any competition. The adventure bike is very comfortable and has a great refreshed design in its latest editions.
With an output of over 150 hp, the 1290 Super Adventure spec can reach a top speed of between 155 and 165 mph. The motorcycle is very heavy and has been specially designed for travel on all terrains.
4 BMW R1250GS
We could add the sporty BMW S1000RR to the list, but we think the BMW R 1250 GS is a better option overall. The specific motorcycle is the dream of many bike enthusiasts around the world. For many years, the R 1250 GS has been the best option for a reliable, attractive and fast adventure motorcycle.
The latest models come with a bunch of practical and useful features that help the driver to drive safely, comfortably and without worries. As we said, this model was specifically developed as a start/stop motorcycle, so don’t expect to reach speeds of over 200 km/h.

3 DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4
Finally, an option from the incredible Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. The Multistrada V4 is a quality motorcycle that continues Ducati’s tradition of offering a package that combines exceptional power with an impressive riding experience.
The Multistrada V4 has been in the game for many years, and we believe it will remain competitive for many years to come. Ducati knows how to evolve its bikes, as the Italian company improves its models internally and externally year after year.
2 KAWASAKI Z1000R
We couldn’t close the list without a Kawasaki model on it. The Japanese manufacturer is known for making fast and… green motorcycles! Yes, we are referring to the Ninja series, possibly the most influential family of superbikes in history. The Z1000R is a new addition to Kawasaki’s naked superbike fleet
Its engine has a displacement of 1.043cc, while it produces more than 140 hp. The result is simple: the machine is dangerously fast, as it can reach a top speed of over 240 km/h. Its acceleration is even more brutal!
1 APRILIA RSV4
We close the list with a wonderful bike from a company with a long history in racing. The RSV4 is a sports motorcycle designed by Aprilia. The specific model recently received a new special edition that improves the base bike even further.
The Aprilia RSV4 is available in a variety of different colors and with two engine displacement options: 1000cc or 1100cc. Of course, both options offer impressive power. With its improved aerodynamic characteristics, the RSV4 can reach a top speed of 190 mph!
