I used to ride motorcycle a long time ago, around 20 years ago. I remember that my motorbike was a quite small, made in Japan, Honda manufactured. As far as I remember, I never reach limit 100 mile per hour (mph).

Surprisingly, current motorcycles, especially racing motorbikes could reach 350 mph. I think almost close to small airplane with 500 mph. Here is the list of current fastest motorbikes:

1) Dodge Tomahawk, speed limit is 350 mph or 560 km/hour.
2) Suzuki Hayabusa, speed limit is 248 mph or 397 km/hour
3) MTT Turbine Superbike Y2K, speed limit is 227 mph or 365 km/hour
4) Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird, speed limit is 190 mph or 310 km/hour
5) Yamaha YZF R1, speed limit is 186 mph or 297 km/hour
6) MV Agusta F4 1000 R, speed limit is 176 mph or 299 km/hour
7) Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11/ZZ-R1100, speed limit is 176 mph or 283 km/hour
8) Aprilia RSV 1000R Mille, speed limit 175 mph or 278 km/hour

How about with motorcycles a hundred year ago or more? The fastest racing motorbike was “Triumph 3½HP free engine 1911 500cc 1 cyl sv” with speed of 63.53 mph (102 km/hour). It was in 1911, very much slower compared to modern motorcycle.

Have you ridden motorcycle? What fastest speed you ever reach?

  1. The fastest I've ever gone on a motorcycle was about 110 mph, and that was about 50 mph too much for me. I was hanging on for dear life and scared half to death. That was probably forty years ago, and I think that was the last time for me. My hubby still has a Harley, but I'm more of a biker chicken than a biker chick. HA

  2. Interesting info here. I grew up with motorcycles instead of dolls. My dad always had them around for us to ride. Now my husband has a Harley, but I don't allow him to go fast with me as a passenger.

  3. My husband ride one before I met him. I have never been on one. I'm not much of a thrill seeker.

  5. Haha I love Susan comment - can I confess to being a biker chicken too?! Still never say never and in Bangkok the easiest way of getting around is on the motorbike taxis so I should get out of my comfort zone. Interesting post.

  6. Ah, in my youth I used love riding on the back of my friend's Harley. You wouldn't find me on one now. My thrill seeking days are over.

  8. I may be unusual. I have never ridden a motorbike and have no desire to do so. I have been pillion on a Lambretta scooter if that counts.

  9. The closest I came to having a motorcycle was that moped I owned in the 80s.
    Yeah, I was a chick magnet.

  11. OnceI had a very short ride on motorcycle and was so scared, I think people who are riding a motorbike are very brave. A motorbike on the second photo is very cool!
    Have a nice day!
