List of fastest production motorcycles by acceleration

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Suzuki GSX-R1000 at a drag strip. This bike once recorded a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.35 seconds.

This is a list of street legal production motorcycles ranked by acceleration from a standing start, limited to 0 to 60 mph times of under 3.5 seconds, and 14 mile times of under 12 seconds. Concept, custom, modified, and one-off motorcycles of any kind are not listed, nor are racing-only motorcycles. The widely varying testing methodologies mean that, even between identical motorcycles, the acceleration times vary. Some of these differences include: rider skill and launching technique, measuring equipment, track surface conditions, weather, air temperature, and altitude.

By 0–60 mph, 3.5 seconds or less[edit]

Notes specify if test was 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) or 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph). For comparison, an object in free fall, without any air resistance, near the Earth's surface accelerates from 0–100 km/h in 2.83 seconds and from 0–60 mph in 2.73 seconds.

Notes[edit]

  • ^ European manufacturers quote 0–100 km/h (62 mph) whereas U.S. manufacturers quote 0–60 mph (97 km/h). This leads to discrepancies in comparisons.
  • ^ The 1971 Norton Dunstall was the first stock, production motorcycle to achieve a quarter mile time under 12 seconds in Cycle World's testing
