Kawasaki ZX-12R 0-60

Yes, it’s another Kawasaki. This one accelerates from 0-60 in just 2.59 seconds, mostly living up to the hype surrounding it, considering how old this motorcycle is.


Given it has a beefy 1,199cc inline four-cylinder engine that cranks out 178.5 horsepower and 101 lb-ft of torque, the fact it only weighs 463 pounds dry makes for a crazy setup. This machine isn’t just quick, it’s also fast, with a top speed of 190 mph.

Yamaha VMAX 0-60

The Yamaha VMAX has one of the fastest motorcycle 0-60 mph times, at a mere 2.5 seconds.  That’s impressive for a cruiser, but it has help in the form of a liquid-cooled 1,197cc V4 engine. It squeezes out 113.5 horsepower, which has to move 580 pounds of dry weight.

Also impressive is how long of a run the VMAX has enjoyed, showing it’s a motorcycle with a strong, dedicated following.

Suzuki Hayabusa 0-60

You’d be hard-pressed to find a motorcycle that can beat this. It goes from 0-60 in just 2.47 seconds. The sport bike can be enough to take your breath away, literally.


If you don’t already know, it packs a mean 1,340cc 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, which only has to move 586 pounds of dry weight. A ram-air intake feeds that engine, leading to amazing results.
