Best Bikes in the History of Bikes

All of the recent posts about cars got me thinking about motorcycles. Let's take a look at some of the hottest bikes of all time, in no specific order.

Kawasaki H2

The new H2 is the street-legal version of Kawasaki's track-only H2R. It is the only production motorcycle that is supercharged, so you need to experience that power and speed. The chain- and gear-driven blower spins ten times faster than the crankshaft, pushing this brand-new Kawasaki model to 200+ mph. The bike is heavy, but state-of-the-art electronics, suspension, and brakes help her perform as well in turns as in a straight line.

Vincent Black Shadow

Hunter S. Thompson probably summed the Black Shadow up the best- "the backlash from the kick-starter almost broke my leg," "the vibration almost fused my wrist bones," and "boiling oil from the breather pipes turned my right foot completely black," but you have to love the "genuinely hellish bike." From 1948 to the late 1960s, this was the fastest production bike ever.

Honda CBX

This bike sounds like a Ferrari at high RPMs, and many collectors ignore its many faults just to hear that mighty roar. Its 6-cylinder, 1047cc engine produced 105 bhp. It was the flagship of the 1978-1982 Honda range, though it was outsold by its cheaper and inferior Honda CB900F.
