Top Ten Fastest Superbikes That You Can Buy In India

By

Superbikes define the epitome of motorcycle design and engineering. They are capable of delivering the highest levels of performance, thanks to tech-laden large-displacement engines that produce high power outputs, and track-honed handling. 

 

Superbikes are designed to travel at very high-speeds. To get an idea of how fast they really are, factor these numbers – a 180 bhp superbike that weighs 200 kg can reach 100 kmph from standstill in less than 3 seconds! An average car weighing 1000 kg will need more than 900 bhp to do the same! The high power-to-weight ratio is what makes them capable of delivering mind-blowing acceleration times and top-speeds. The rapid acceleration also means that superbikes are not to be taken lightly. One must respect these machines and exercise utmost caution when riding them, for a thoughtless twist of the wrist could end very badly for the rider and other road users

 

Of course, superbikes are expensive to buy and maintain, but when you consider the fact that they can out-accelerate sportscars that cost ten times as much, they would seem like a relative bargain.

 

Check out ten of the fastest superbikes that you can buy in India today.
