Beware! Top 9 Most Dangerous Superbikes In The World
Exotic Toys ^ | 6-2-14

Posted on 06/02/2014 9:02:32 PM PDT by kingattax

The average motorcycle you see zipping down the freeway beside you doesn’t always hit its top speed, and for good reason. There are speed limits on roads around the world to protect motorcycle riders and other drivers alike.

When you read a vehicle’s speed capacity, it usually is a theoretical figure that may never be attained under real driving conditions.

The actual clocked speed is generally a bit lower, though still impressive enough to make your hair part just from reading it.

However, certain superbikes are designed to hit breathtaking speeds on the racetrack while leaving the fragile human body exposed to potentially deadly crashes. An old saying states that “speed kills.” The following nine superbikes are some of the fastest and deadliest superbikes in the world. They are also some of the most beautiful, well designed and undeniably cool vehicles to ever grace a track.

Some of these are still in production, while others have passed on into motorcycle history and are fondly remembered by those who knew and drove them. Either way, each of these may truly be classified as a legend in the world of high-speed machines.

Owning motorcycle, including sportbikes, I have to say speed is not the danger. Sportbikes tend to attract young innexperienced idiots.

“the Hayabusa features a six-speed transmission powering a 4 stroke, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.”

Hmmmm.

Speed does not kill.

"I have to say speed is not the danger."

Flying down the road on a two wheeler with a plastic brain bucket on your head while the rest of your body is exposed to all manner of trauma if you get into a collision with all the other vehicles that have more than 4 times the combined mass of you and your vehicle is the danger.

Bikes NEVER win when the tangle with cars and trucks...

Around this neck of the woods, there are two or perhaps three speed demons on motorcycles. I cringe every-time hear one of them begin their run because before this summer is over expect at a minimum of one death from the antics I hear and witness once or twice a week.

I always wanted a really hot motorcycle...until I actually rode on a bike. I went two blocks on the back of my buddy’s Honda Rebel (stop laughing, dangit!) at just under 30 mph, and decided that was all the motorcycle riding I wanted in this life.

“Dangerous” Superbikes

Bulls#it

A Honda Dream will kill you just as dead, maybe more easily.

In any case, none of the bikes listed should be ridden by anyone who isn’t relatively familiar with motorcycles, just like the Dodge Viper or Bugatti Veyron shouldn’t be driven by just any schmoe.

Even at my age I still ride the old ‘86 4 speed chain drive Sportster. it will “walk the dog” if I need it to. If you realize there are plenty of idiots out there despite dealing with a lawyer who will hurt you given the opportunity you will be a lot safer. You have to ride like you mean it, every time.

Used to ride Japanese go-fast bikes as a kid. Survived with only a few scrapes on me and some paint and chrome scraped off my bikes.

Currently saving up for a Harley Davidson. Going to get back into riding in a year or two as a reward for surviving something even more dangerous than motorcycles - having kids. In a couple of years we'll be "empty nesters" and I intend to tour some of the national parks out west. At a much more sedate and legal pace.

Gonna take another swing at this idiot:

Apart from making blatant mistakes like having the Hayabusa’s transmission powering its engine, he’s also managed to confuse kilometers per hour and miles per hour. The Hayabusa will go 298 *kph*, because that’s just under the voluntary 300kph limit the hyperbike makers agreed to, to end the horsepower wars. Even a heavily modified Hayabusa won’t do much more than 220 *mph*, as proven by numerous Bonneville runs.

Ditto the ZX11, which can barely do 180 *mph*, and even heavily modified barely touched 220mph.

This blogger is likely a lib, because he falls prey to the same superficial nonsense the anti-gun crowd does, by focusing on aspects of their target that only *seem* scary. The author provides no justification for labeling bikes like the R1 and the BMW 1000RR “deadly” other than their apparent high speeds, and utterly unrelated aspects of the bike like single-sided swingarms and multi-outlet exhaust. He includes nothing to define the relative deadliness of each bike, i.e. the number of riders that have died on each bike. By that measure, the R1 is probably the deadliest on his list, closely followed by the Hayabusa and ZX11, by dint of those bikes being among the most popular in the “squid” culture, with way too many inexperienced riders buying them because they’re “cool”. The GSXR would also deserve mention by being in that same category.

Oddly enough, he includes several bikes that simply aren’t available to the ordinary rider. The Tomahawk was only ridden a couple of times. Leno has one, and he rode it a very short distance. Based on his comments, it’s way too heavy to be useful, and handles like a pig.

The Y2K is a novelty bike. Actual rider tests of it showed that it too suffered from poor handling due to the long wheelbase. It’s also heavy, and the turbine motor takes a while to get spun up compared to a normal piston-engine bike, so acceleration is only modest.

Funnily enough, the author had to reach all the way back to the old Blackbird to fill out his roster, despite that bike never really grabbing the headlines the way its competitors the ZX11 and the Hayabusa did. The Blackbird really ended up being a slightly sharper brother to the sport-touring ST1100, rather than a balls-to-the-wall hyperbike. And he completely ignores the new Kawasaki ZX-14 (unless that was on the broken “10 of 11” page in his slideshow), which just edges the Hayabusa in brutality.

And I just dug into the page source since “10 of 11” doesn’t show up, and it looks like he’s picked the Buell 1190 for his final “deadly” bike. Which is laughable, because the 1190 is first of all a race bike, and second of all hardly in the same class as even the R1. If you’re going to include race bikes, why not include the last iteration of the old Suzuki RG500 with carbon-carbon brakes? The Suzuki factory riders’ instructions for braking into corners was “wait until you see God, then hit the brake”.

What I see in those bikes is not danger, but jail time for speeding. I used to push 130 mph from time to time on my Triumph Rocket 3 until I decided it was not worth the risk of going to jail. I have not done over 100 mph since and usually just stay at 80 on the freeway.

A 20 hp scooter can kill you just as easily as a superbike. The left turners do not discriminate.

Only thing I saw dangerous was that MTT turbine thing and Dodge thing. Hard to class them as motorcycles other than two wheels.

The whole package is supposed to work, and all the rest of the bikes do work well. If inexperienced dorks buy them and waste themselves, well, they do that when daddy buys them a Porsche Turbo too.

Never owned faster than a Yamaha FZR1000, but all those bikes are by all reports, very safe and well balanced machines, but not for fools.

Yes, it’s a Viper engine in a pseudo-motorcycle chassis. They had to use 4 wheels because even the all-aluminum Viper block was too heavy for an ordinary bike.

I rode a borrowed Honda 750 more than forty years ago; it was fun especially the shifting part but I decided I liked air conditioning even more.

Four years ago I was on interstate in my Chrysler minivan with the A/C on max as it was 105 degrees. A kid on a crotch rocket passed me like I was standing still. Nothing unusual except he was in full wheelstand mode from the time I saw him in the mirror until he disappeared into the horizon ahead, on one wheel. That explains the uptilted muffler found on most sportbikes.

Then a couple on a Harley passed & then pulled in front of me. I always give plenty of space to motorcycles ahead of me but still had to turn on the wipers as their sweat was spattering my windshield.

Believe I’ll keep my A/C equipped “cage”.

You’re right, this guy is an idiot (300 mph Hayabusa — obviously it was kph).

With an earned perspective as an owner of #9, I have to say the old Kaw 750 Triple was a truly dangerous bike, with a frame that was totally incapable of handling the engine’s power.

Not to mention the Kaw 750 Turbo (I had one), that had a lag that would absolutely bite you in the a$$ if you opened the throttle with any bank angle, or you didn’t otherwise anticipate the delayed rush of power.

In fact just about any of the 70’s crotch-rockets had a tendency to enter a high-speed ‘death wobble’ because the production chassis technology didn’t keep up with the advancements in horsepower.

So with the exception of the first two on the list the rest is B.S.

I just remembered, probably the “deadliest” bike out there was the Suzuki TL1000 (naked version, not the “race” bike). The early iterations of that bike were notoriously unstable (or at least rumored to be) due to the very steep head angle. Suzuki just about killed the bike trying to “correct” the twitchy handling, and the bike model never really recovered from its reputation.

Another “deadly” bike was the 1st-generation Honda CBR900RR, which had absolutely brutal throttle response, and was so small and light, with such a steep rake angle, that it nearly rivaled the TL1000 in twitchy handling.

Given the way most Freepers say such heartless non empathetic sarcastic things about anyone killed doing anything more risky than couch surfing I doubt many here have rode much beyond their Schwinn with training wheels

My first bike was an H2.(75?)... an unwieldy beast in her age...1977....kunis....two sets of pipes....3 into 3 hookers and 3 to 1 dencos....man those hookers uncapped were loud....like a grand Prix car burning alcohol..... very difficult to keep front wheel on pavement
Next around 1980 bought a brand new Suzuki 1100 GSR(S)...the drag bike version..factory tuned I did not one aftermarket add on...came with hand blown yoshi..fastest bike of its day....and remove wheelie bar and it was a cafe bike

Next in 83 I had a Kow GPZ bored triple oversized....nitrous....kunis...yoshi...high 9s bike....180 or so top speed

Handled great.......incredible bike

Bikes are dangerous...I got metal in me proof enough

Today’s bikes are super top end and some so light and nimble and super power from lower displacement....hell even a girl can ride em like a pro

I was 6’5” back in my time and weighed 175...strap on my white Shoei FC and I looked like a praying mantis draped on my bike dragging so low in those turns dragging a duct taped knee

Man I could sure ride then....I scare myself thinking about it now

King Kenny was my hero...still is

I had a Kawaski 500 3 cyl 2 stroke and it was not a racing looking bike, but I could beat any Harley to 90 or so and then they came from behind thmp,thmp, thmp and passed me at just under a hundred or so. Just about always took them on the back roads though....

It warped the middle head cause it was air cooled and really had to do a lot of maintenance to keep it fast. So it was a blast to ride but a pain to maintain. Eventually sold it to a mechanic.

An acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. My youngest son, 25, in Navy, unloaded his Ducati Dark 800 and got a Yamaha R1 - I pray for his safety ....and sanity.......

but his dad was riding the fastest bike made in the mid-60’s - Triumph Bonneville - and still does....a ‘72 I restored myself. And I have the fastest bike made in ‘69 as well, Triumph T150V Trident (mine’s a
73). By today’s standards, they are in the slow lane......

I had one of those. Loved it.

Now I ride a 93 Superglide.
I love that one too.

And I HAVE pushed it to its limit, one fine day about 20 years ago when there was nobody but me and hubby on Rt 64 between Richmond and Norfolk.

Left Hubby’s Ultra in the dust.
It WAS a wee bit scary, I’ll have to admit!

Triumph T150V Trident

67mm bore, 70mm stroke X 3. 3 coils and 3 sets of points, all timed separately, and a cable-acturated single-plate dry clutch with a diaphragm spring that would turn your left hand into something that could crush bricks.

There’s an old adage. When someone is driving his car he thinks that everyone slower then him is an idiot and everyone faster than him is a fool.

I extend it to the typical middleclass drone sitting in his rut and his worthless life. He thinks that anyone who engages in any activity that seems more dangerous than his activities is a fool. Anyone who wants more freedom that he does is “irresponsible”. Anyone who takes less chances than he does is a “coward”. Typically he has absolutely no experience in the activity he thinks is so dangerous. The way some people around here freak out about bikes makes me glad that they never knew anyone who was killed in a car.

Fact is, most motorcycles are not dangerous at all. Some people who ride them are. The half-awake fools who barge around the streets in their cars, cell phone in one hand, coffee cup in their lap, bloodstream full of Prozac and post terms like “murdercycle” on the FreeRepublic.... Now THOSE guys are dangerous.

Maybe we should change the website from FreeRepublic to “NannyRepublic”.

They ran with a bunch of older, LESS POWERFUL bikes than what are currently available... For instance, the Ducati 1098, and fine bike when it was released way back when...

Why they ignored the newer, faster 1199 Panigale R, with 195HP @ roughly $30,0000, who knows?

Then there’s the super exclusive 1199 Superleggera, which has over 205hp (Ducati isn’t releasing the actual hp rating) and nearly 27 pounds lighter, extensively using magnesium in the monocoque “frame” and wheels, titanium engine components, aluminum swingarm, and carbon fiber pretty much on everything else, than the Panigale R. Ducati is only building 500 of these bikes

If they REALLY want crazy, there’s the Ducati Desmosedici RR. When the MotoGP powers-that-be announced that the 1000cc limit produced bikes just too powerful to safely pilot around the track, and downsized the engine size from 1000cc to 800cc, Ducati had all these spare parts, tooling, and rabid fans who would do ANYTHING to own a street legal MotoGP bike. And that was exactly what Ducati delivered, a slightly detuned MotoGP bike WITH lights, mirrors, and a factory warranty! 200hp, back in 2008! IIRC, the first 2 imported into the USA went to Jay Leno and Tom Cruise, at $72,500!

You make some really great points... One “deadly” bike that comes to mind is the old Kawasaki H2 Mach 4, a 750cc 2 stroke triple, and it actually carried the name “the widowmaker.”

There was simply WAY too much power for the frame or brakes, and the power hit so hard and suddenly that uncontrolled wheelie/flip-overs were happening.

Basically, it was a bike with a frame & brakes made for a sedate 250cc 4 stroke, but with enough power to do a quarter mile in the 12s!

I rode a Mach III for a while. It also was a widow maker.

More recently I rode a Kawi Concours (the 1000cc) all over the US. Its a real sleeper with an older Ninja motor under the plastic. Used to beat the young kids on crotch rocket all the time and embarrass HDs easily. Then one day a kid went down trying to catch me. He was okay. I quit trolling at that point.

I too have seen the Sausage Creature...

Indy mile.

He ran it again on same bike a few years ago

I think he did Seca or somewhere on his superbike last year

At 62.

Won all the circuits in his day handily

He’s like the Reinhold Meissner of bike racing

Buddy of mine has a Panigale and a Corse and some yell low striped Duke

He and his daddy race them....yes they have senior races for Dukes

Lol....he took his out the other nite and came home and set it on the stand

Improperly...walked upstairs....crash...new race faring....700 bucks

Its the stupid mistakes

My (ex) used car manager used to race when he was younger and road race for cash later. He could do things on a motorcycle that seemed impossible. Just a few minor scrapes over the years. Got married, had kids. Settled down. A little.

Got the itch and bought a ‘Busa. Lived about 60 miles from the store and could make it home in about 30 minutes(traffic cooperating). He was almost home......running about 20mph in his neighborhood when a deer blindsided him. Broke his leg, shoulder, jaw and tailbone.

You never know.
