Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, 186 miles per hour from Fastest Motorcycle in The World
Once bikes like the Kawasaki Ninja ZX 14R enter the picture, it’s really a matter of who outraces whom. Packing a 1441cc engine capable of 200 hp, this Ninja stood alone in its class before the Lightning LS-218 joined the club. It is one of the heaviest bikes on this list at (584 pounds), but it maintains an impressive ratio of weight to torque at 113 pound-feet. In 2013, Ralph Nicholls set the Australian land speed record on a Ninja ZX 14R with tire and gearing changes. Nicholls rode the Ninja fast motorcycles above 208 miles per hour.
