Fastest motorcycles 0-60 mph

Top 40 fastest bikes from 0 to 60 mph. Updated September 2022.

Zero to 60 mph time is most popular performance benchmark for motorcycles and cars.

For small displacement bikes and scooters 60 mph is fast enough to require decent length acceleration run and it can be used as a proxy for overall acceleration capability.

For very powerful motorcycles, 60 mph is only the beginning of the acceleration pull, and getting to 60 mph is more about traction and control and less about power and weight.

Modern superbikes have electronic traction and wheelie control that make 0-60 times more consistent and closer to theoretical traction limit.
