If you are a superbike lover, then here are 5 superbikes in India that are making waves for their superlative specifications matched by an equally superlative performance.
BMW HP4 Race
At a price tag of Rs 85 lakh, the BMW HP4 Race is perhaps the costliest superbike available in India. This beauty of a mean machine, belts out from its 999cc engine 215hp at 13,900 rpm. If you can find a road in India where there is no speed limit, you can zip by at over 300 kilometres an hour. Can you imagine the main frame of this superbike weighs only 7.8 kg? Because it is carbon fibre made! BMW even uses carbon fiber for the HP4 Race wheels. This is one bike that would be the envy of everyone.
Kawasaki Ninja H2R
As far as 998cc supercharged engines go, there is nothing to beat the Kawasaki Ninja H2R as it delivers 326hp and 165Nm of torque. At a maximum speed of 400 km per hour, it is perhaps the fastest bike in India, and priced only Rs 72 lakh. The Ninja H2R is not just aesthetic but also aerodynamic. It oozes new technology with self-healing paint and Brembo Stylema brakes.
Ducati Panigale V4 R
This Italian masterpiece is one that will be coveted by superbike aficionados. Its 998cc engine is from the Ducati Desmosedici GP racer pedigree dishing out 112Nm of peak torque at 11,500rpm and 221hp at 15,250 pm. That is not all; you can attach an Akrapovič racing exhaust system to garner 234hp power at 15,500rpm. The engine’s high performance is enhanced by its lighter components – all-new camshaft, connecting rods, titanium valves and forged pistons. For this production vehicle’s high-end performance the price is a reasonable Rs 52 lakh.
Big Dog K9 Red Chopper
This is one head turner! As unique as they come, this superbike could be the envy of even 4-wheelers for its 2743 mm length. It boasts a massive twin-cylinder, Super Sidewinder, Overhead Valve, 45-Degree 1807cc engine. Even more than its long wheelbase, this Big Dog is elegance personified. At Rs 59 lakh this phenomenal superbike should be a steal.
Harley-Davidson CVO Limited
Who hasn’t heard of Harley-Davidson? The Harley-Davidson CVO Limited is an iconic superbike that is powered by a huge 1,923 cc Milwaukee Eight 117 engine. Just think about the power it generates – 165Nm at only 3250rpm. Give it a small additional rev and the superbike is off the block in a trice. This magnificent piece of engineering is a luxurious marvel on two wheels – locking and unlocking is keyless, colour screen, Bluetooth headsets, Harley Boom audio, heated grips and seats, and large dual seats with individual backrests. This superbike is priced at a reasonable Rs 50 lakh.
