Super Bikes by Priyanka ,  Jun 18, 2013
It is said that motorcycles are incomparable to any other mode of transport, and that the enthusiast is a breed of their own. There is no doubt that ‘biking’ has remained popular ever since it’s first conception and has now brought forward the making of “super bikes”.

Dodge Tomahawk

The Dodge Tomahawk was a non-street legalconcept vehicle introduced by Dodge at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Dodge's extraordinary claims of a top speed of 420 mph (680 km/h) were derided by experts in land speed records, and the Tomahawk never demonstrated a speed above 100 mph (160 km/h).

The Art Deco design was the work of Chrysler staff designer Mark Walters and featured the 500 hp (370 kW) 8.3-litre (510 cu in) V10SRT10 engine from the Dodge Viper. The vehicle has two front wheels and two rear wheels, making it a kind of motorized quadricycle rather than a typical motorcycle. The pairs of wheels move independently, allowing it to countersteer and lean in turns like a motorcycle.

Hand-built examples of the Tomahawk were offered for sale through the Neiman Marcus catalog at a price of US$ 555,000, and up to nine of them might have sold.Dodge emphasized that the bikes were "rolling sculptures" not intended to be ridden.

MV Agusta F3

After being elected the “Most beautiful 600 in the world”,  the MV Agusta F3 675 is now ready to become the new reference both on the street and on the track. A Supersport that boasts a ultra-advance chassis and vehicle dynamics control that is on par with the most advanced Superbikes thanks to the new system MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System).The MV Agusta F3 675 is a revolutionary motorcycle offering extreme emotions to the rider on the street and on the track. The three cylinder engine utilizes a revolutionary counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution that has only been previously seen on MotoGP motorcycles, together with the most compact and light weight layout ever seen on a Supersport bike. These are only a few of the characteristics that make the new F3 675 the most sophisticated supersport with the best handling of any sport motorcycle.The MV Agusta F3 675 engine is the most advanced and powerful middle weight engine ever produced.  It is a ultra-compact in-line three cylinder with the perfect balance between advanced mechanical engineering, extremely advanced materials and electronics technology. Thanks to the MVICS system it is the first middle weight motorcycle with Full Ride By Wire engine controls including  4 pre-set maps and one personally tunable map including traction control that can be selected between 8 different levels.The chassis is also incredibly advanced: studied and designed to obtain the maximum dynamic performance, it was born with the optimum rigidity that offers an unparalleled level of feeling during all riding conditions when compared to the other motorcycles in this category.The development of the style of the MV Agusta F3 675 was based on the core philosophy that has always characterized all previous MV’s: the perfect balance between form and function that meld together to create an object that is unique not only for its beauty but also for its effectiveness.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14, or ZZR1400 outside North America, is a motorcycle made by Kawasaki that was their most powerful sport bike as of 2007.[1] It was introduced at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show[2] and released for the 2006 model year as a replacement for the ZX-12R. The ZZR1400 is capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in 2.5 seconds.[3] The top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (299 km/h) as a result of an agreement between the major Japanese and European motorcycle manufacturers.
Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R

The Hayabusa is a super bike named after the fastest bird in the world–the Peregrine falcon. This bird is able to dive at top speeds of nearly 200 mph. Similarly, the Hayabusa can reach just about the same maximum velocity. With beautiful curves and a price tag that isn’t reserved for the rich and famous, the Hayabusa is like a fine lady who isn’t just after your wallet.
Honda CBR1000RR

The Honda CBR1000RR was developed by the same team that was behind the MotoGP series. Many of the new technologies introduced in the Honda CBR600RR, a direct descendant of the RC211V, were used in the new CBR1000RR such as a lengthy swingarm, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, and Dual Stage Fuel Injection System (DSFI).
Erik Buell Racing 1190 RS

Erik Buell Racing is a motorcycle sport company which produces street and racing motorcycles, based in East Troy, Wisconsin, USA. Erik Buell founded the company in November 2009 following the shutdown of his previous company, Buell Motorcycle Company, by parent company/majority stakeholder Harley Davidson. Erik Buell Racing's first efforts were directed toward production of complete, race-only motorcycles and parts based on the Buell 1125R production model, under license from Harley-Davidson, to support privateer racers.
Yamaha YZF R1

Yamaha R1 represents a paradigm shift in technology, performance and controllability among litre class sport bikes. The R1 has been designed to be the “Ultimate Cornering Master 1000” of the open super sport class. Inspired by Yamaha’s M1 MotoGP race bike, this latest generation 998cc R1 features a crossplane crankshaft design with an uneven firing order to provide outstanding yet easy to control torque and an exceptionally linear throttle feel never experienced before. But there is far more to R1 than just a revolutionary engine.
MTT Turbine Superbike

The MTT Turbine Superbike, also known as the Y2K Turbine Superbike, is a wheel-driven motorcycle powered by a turboshaft engine, created by Ted McIntyre of Marine Turbine Technologies. The machine is powered by a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 gas turbine producing 320 hp (240 kW) at 52,000 rpm. Unlike some earlier jet-powered motorcycles, where a massive jet engine provided thrust to push the motorcycle, the turboshaft engine on this model drives the rear wheel via a two-speed gearbox.The engines used in the motorcycles are second-hand, having reached the FAA-mandated running time limit, after which they have to be rebuilt, regardless of condition. To get around the problem of procuring the kerosene usually used in turbine engines, the engine is also able to use diesel, or jet fuel.

In 2008, MTT released the "Streetfighter," another jet-bike with a more powerful 420 hp (310 kW) engine.

Aprilia RSV 1000R Mille

The Aprilia RSV Mille was a sport motorcycle manufactured by Aprilia from 1998 to 2003. It was offered in three versions, RSV Mille, RSV Mille R, and RSV Mille SP.

The first RSV Mille (ME) was made from 1998 to 2000, the updated RSV Mille (RP) from 2001 to 2002 and the last update was made in 2003.

With a 998 cc 60-degree V-twin engine built by the Austrian company Rotax, the RSV Mille was the first large displacement motorcycle made by Aprilia that up to then had made up to 250cc engines. This same engine was used unmodified in the Tuono and in slightly modified form in the SL1000 Falco.

The Mille featured a type of slipper clutch, which worked by using a vacuum on a closed throttle from the inlet manifold to give the effect of slipper clutch, but only on a closed throttle.

BMW K1200S

With enough raw power to shock even the most seasoned adrenaline junky, the K 1200 Shurls you from a dead stop to sixty mph in just 2.8 seconds. Once you're over the whiplash, you'll keep climbing, topping out at speeds that run neck-and-neck with the fastest production motorcycles in the world.
