When talking of speeds, motorbikes are undoubtedly faster than cars courtesy of their power-to-weight ratio and compact frame that reduces lag and wind resistance.

In this article, check out the top three fastest bikes in 2022.

1. Dodge Tomahawk

The fastest bike in the world is the Dodge Tomahawk, manufactured by DaimlerChrysler AG. This concept vehicle packs a powerful 8.3L V10 Dodge Viper SRT10 engine complemented by a 2-speed manual transmission. At first, the Tomahawk’s manufacturer put its hypothetical top speed at 420mph but later revised it to 300mph, still making it the fastest bike. Unfortunately, only nine units were produced and are already sold.

2. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R Supersport

Second on the list is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R Supersport which is powered by a robust 1441cc 4-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled engine and has a 6-speed manual transmission with a return shift. Dubbed the “King of the Quarter Mile”, the Ninja ZX-14R Supersport has a top speed of 249mph. However, the maximum speed has been electronically capped at 186mph after an agreement between European and Japanese motorcycle manufacturers.

3. Kawasaki Ninja H2R

Kawasaki takes the number three spot with the Ninja H2R. Under the hood, Kawasaki has equipped this speed monster with a supercharged, 998cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine and a 6-speed return dog-ring transmission. The top speed is 240mph, but it is not a street-legal bike. You can otherwise opt for the Kawasaki Ninja H2, a street-legal variant with a top speed of 209mph.

The above are the fastest bikes in the world. But while they are at the helm right now, other bike manufacturers are working round the clock to produce even quicker models with bigger engines. That said, you can be sure that the list will change in the coming few years.
