10 Impressive Bikes Which Took Over The World In 2015

Some of us enjoy driving around for no good reason, just loving the experience, comfort and thrills provided by the vehicle. But other people prefer to live their life on two wheels, rather than four, which is why we’ve decided to take a look back at the finest and most exciting-looking two-wheeled vehicles of 2015. It’s been a good year, that’s for sure!

10. Thunderbike Precision-R Project

Let’s start with #10, the Precision-R project, featuring an eye popping Frame-Kit, with original Thunderbike Monoblock wheels cnc-machined out of solid aluminum blocks. This muscular bike shows off a simple, elegant look that’s complemented by a Harley Davidson Screamin Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine, good for about 99 hp and 160 Nm of torque.

The German motorbike manufacturer Thunderbike has also fitted this awesome bike with a Vance & Hines exhaust system, radial 4-piston brakes, a custom Thunderbike seat and a lovely paint job as well. Riding into the sunset has never seemed more incredible.

9. BMW K 1600 GTL by BMW Motorrad

Based on the ravishing BMW K 1600 GTL, this twin project comes from BMW Motorrad Japan featuring two jaw dropping custom bikes that will charm you in their own ways. Kenji Nagai from Ken’s factory and Kenji Kawakita from Hot Dock Custom Cycles have built these amazing bikes, as a tribute to BMW Motorrad’s powerful 1649 cc six cylinder engine.

With an exterior design that looks like it’s coming right out of the Mad Max universe, the “Juggernaut” boasts an aggressive, military body and a striking dark grey paint job. Ken’s Factory Special, on the other hand, is extremely futuristic looking, with a more elegant, minimalist design, complemented by various eye catching aluminum parts.

8. Honda RC213V-S

Honda’s most expensive street-legal production motorcycle is the new Honda RC213V-S. A superbike developed for MotoGP fans, this beast allows you to enjoy its features and thrills even on your way to work. Honda’s new street-legal racing bike is super fast, and it handles really easy, as the RC213V-S is based on the RC213V winning motorcycle.

The street version shows off an aluminum frame, an under-seat gas tank and carbon fiber-reinforced plastic bodywork. Powered by a 999cc V4 engine connected to a six-speed gearbox, this Honda benefits from adjustable power modes and engine-brake control, plus a race-developed traction control system and RS10 tires, courtesy of Bridgestone.

7. Dodge Tomahawk

Back in 2003, Dodge has introduced a mind blowing motorcycle concept which was called Tomahawk. 12 years later though, this extraordinary project has moved on from the concept stage to the real world and it could be annoying neighbors everywhere pretty soon.

Featuring 4 wheels and a massive Dodge Viper engine, the Dodge Tomahawk is a petrol-head’s ultimate daydream. This outrageous bike would be powered by a 8.3-liter V10 SRT 10 engine, good for 500 hp. Dodge decided to develop 9 of these incredible bikes, for around $550,000, but that’s not that scary. The question is: can you handle it?

6. P51 G2 Combat Fighter

Confederate Motorcycles blend in vehicle design, sculptural art and weapons-grade machinery into two-wheel masterpieces. Their latest example is this all-American motorcycle, dubbed as the Confederate Motorcycles P51 G2 Combat Fighter. Powered by an air cooled V-Twin engine, good for around 200 hp, this hair rising bike will make everyone shiver as it passes by.

Boasting a frame constructed out of 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, brushed and naked to look truly menacing, the new Confederate Combat Fighter is way cooler than expected. Please note that only 61 of these motorcycles will be produced, so this true collector’s piece should have no problem in finding interest.

5. F3 800 Motorcycle

After Mercedes-AMG acquired a 25% stake in Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta, we could not help but expect an interesting project. And this gorgeous, one-off, motorcycle, called F3 800 totally made our days a lot more exciting. Inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT S, hence the AMG solarbeam yellow exterior with black accents, the F3 800 motorcycle is one sexy beast.

The MV Agusta F3 800 also shows off a black leather seat, with contrasting yellow stitching and also worth mentioning is the 798 cc three-cylinder engine it’s been fitted with, good for around 148 PS (108 kW) and 88 Nm (65 lb-ft) of torque. Top speed: 269 km/h (167.1 mph), easily.

4. 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R

Kawasaki has revealed the latest iteration of their beloved superbike, in the form of the 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, with several improvements over its predecessor. The 998cc in-line four cylinder engine powering the new Ninja superbike comes with new pistons, camshafts, a new cylinder head and primary gear, not to mention a lighter crankshaft, and it also comes with redesigned porting with electronic throttle valves and a 25 percent bigger airbox.

With 210 horsepower and 83.7 lb-ft of torque coming out of that engine, it’s no surprise that this bike is so desirable. Considering the intelligent braking system, complete with Brembo brakes up front, as well as the Cornering Management function, the bike will offer a fast experience, as well as a safe one.

3. Yamaha MT-10 Motorcycle

The jaw dropping Yamaha MT-10 motorcycle has been revealed at EICMA 2015, and it became the focus of everyone’s attention instantly. With its amazing design and breathtaking specs, this new Yamaha motorcycle will provide riders with a new kind of connected experience; a 998cc four-cylinder cross-plane engine delivers incredible torque, while an aluminum chassis, with a wheelbase of just 1400 mm, allows for a low weight curb and agile handling performance.

The aggressive MT-10 also features a state-of-the-art suspension system and class-leading engine specifications. The engine comes with a freshly designed intake, exhaust and fueling systems, as well as an optimized crank balance. The Yamaha chip controlled throttle offers the rider a choice of three engine running modes, and the adjusting of throttle opening, ignition time and fuel injection volume. The Yamaha MT-10 is surely a law-breaker, but not in that way.

2. 2016 Ducati XDiavel

Ducati unleashed the XDiavel, an awesome upgrade of the already fast and uber hot Ducati Diavel, with a stroked-out engine and a much cleaner look. The engine has been stroked out to 1262 cc, and now develops 156 hp and 129 Nm of torque, although the Ducati XDiavel aims at a more relaxed ride. As such, the styling looks fantastic and quite menacing, to say the least.

Speaking of cruising, the Ducati XDiavel has 60 riding positions, customers being able to choose between four different footrest positions, five different seats and three different handlebars. The XDiavel also comes with an Inertial Measurement Unit, Traction Control and Cornering ABS systems, with the sportier S version to show off glossy black paint, daytime running light, DLC-coated forks, and bigger Brembo M50 brake calipers.

1. Jaguar Project 7MC

Independent designers don’t have to deal with technical, logistics, or marketing restraints, something that becomes painfully obvious once you take a look at this particularly cool motorcycle concept. The Jaguar Project 7MC, developed by Hungarian designer Tamas Jakus, is an eye-catching concept based on a unique blend of the Triumph Speed Triple and a roadster version of Jaguar’s F Type Project 7.

Among the Jaguar-inspired features we can mention the sport windshield, dual “insect” headlights, a new fuel tank, and a series of Jaguar shield emblems, as well as the 5-spoke carbon wheels. One of the more intriguing concepts out there, we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing the Jaguar Project 7MC on the road sometime in the future. Would you?
