List of fastest production motorcycles by acceleration

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
A 2002 Suzuki GSX-R1000 at a drag strip. A 2006 GSX-R1000 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.

By quarter-mile time, 12 seconds or less[edit]

Suzuki Hayabusa, 9.7 sec.
1981 Suzuki Katana, 11.32 sec.
Triumph Daytona 900, 11.40 sec.

Time from standing start to 14-mile (400 m). For comparison, an object in free fall (without any air resistance) near the Earth's surface has a quarter-mile time of 9.06 seconds and a speed of 198.7 mph.

In 1971 Cycle World said the Norton Dunstall 810 (11.9 seconds), a Norton Commando modified by a third party but available to the public as a production, not bespoke, motorcycle, was the first production motorcycle with a quarter-mile time under 12 seconds in that magazine's testing history.[58] In 2012, the same magazine said the 1972 Kawasaki H2 Mach IV (11.95 seconds) was the first under 12 seconds.[59]

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 production motorcycle to achieve a quarter-mile time under 12 seconds in Cycle World's testing, according to that magazine at that time. Later, in 2012, Cycle World said the 1972 Kawasaki H2 Mach IV was the first such production bike. The Norton Dunstall was series-produced, but modified by a third party, while the H2 Mach IV was a more typical production motorcycle.
