Top Motorcycles That Reach 0-100Kmph Under Three Seconds

A motorcycle doing 100 kilometres per hour is unbelievable, right? Well, in this world, there are too many motorcycles capable of doing that

How fast is fast enough? For motorcycle enthusiasts and speed junkies, we guess no top speed or acceleration will never be fast enough. However, in this article, we have compiled a list of some of the top motorcycles in the world that can hit the mark of 100 kilometres per hour in less than three seconds.

Why is this article important?

If you have ever driven an ordinary budget car on the highway, you know how much time it takes for the car to hit the 100 kilometres per hour mark. Therefore, motorcycles hitting the same speed under three seconds is newsworthy. These motorcycles are an example of how far the motorcycle industry has come since the launch of the Daimler Reitwagen, the world’s first motorcycle, in 1885.

Aprilia RSV4, the flagship model of the Italian giant

Discontinued in India, the Aprilia RSV4 is available in many countries. Several iterations of the motorcycle have been launched, but one of them stood out. That particular RSV4 did the 0-100 kilometre per hour run in merely 2.9 seconds, making it one of the quickest accelerating street-legal motorcycles on the planet. When it was available in India, it had a price tag of INR 24 lakh.

KTM 1190 Adventure, a bit surprising

This motorcycle is a surprise package because we never expected an adventure motorcycle to achieve the mammoth task. After all, it is not a sports motorcycle. Expected to hit the Indian shores in 2022 at INR 13 lakh, the KTM 1190 Adventure in the correct hands can hit a 0-100 mark in 2.9 seconds. Not to forget, it can take a rider to almost any unexplored terrain.

Yamaha FZ1 from 2001

We added this motorcycle in our article because of only one reason: the year of production. Several FZ1 iterations have been launched by the Japanese manufacturer but the first-gen FZ1 from 2001 that could hit the 100 kilometres per hour mark in 2.7 seconds is still an impressive feat. To be honest, several motorcycles from the present era will never come close to the long-gone 2001 FZ1.

Before ending the article, we should like to mention a few more motorcycles. They are the 2009 BMW K1300S, 2015 Ducati Diavel and 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000.
