Top 10 most Powerful Naked Bikes

Shari Ives Cool Stuff

  1. Kawasaki Z1000 – 142.8hp


One of the most aggressive looking bikes on the market with 142.8hp, it’s got the power to back up the style. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see an even more powerful Z1000 appearing soon with the ZX-10R on its way.


  1. Suzuki GSX-S1000 – 146.8hp


The power doesn’t challenge the KTM’s Super Duke R, which some find disappointing, but the bargain makes this bike one of Suzuki’s most tempting propositions in years.


  1. Triumph Rocket III – 146.8hp


The Triumph Rocket III has all the power and the huge 2294cc with163lbft of torque. At 334kg, it’s getting on for twice the weight of the lightest machines on this list.


  1. Ducati Diavel – 154.9hp


Official claims put the Diavel (In Europe and America) at 161.8hp, but the EPA puts it at 154.9. While the EPA has not announced the figures for the XDiavel, Ducati’s spec put it at 155.9hp so we are listing both bikes together here.


  1. MV Agusta Brutale 1090 RR – 157.7hp


This bike is often forgotten about, but it is actually right up there with more recent machines like the BMW S1000R in terms of power. We are also expecting a new version soon.


  1. BMW K1300R – 160.4hp


This beast is still available in 2016 and with 160.4hp, it is one of the most powerful naked bikes out there.


  1. BMW – S1000R – 160.4hp


While this bike has the same power as the K1300R, the style of the two bikes is completely different. This bike shook the superbike establishment five years ago, and it doesn’t have a bad price tag for how fast it is.




  1. KTM 1290 Super Duke R – 172.6hp


Smooth throttle response, great chassis, lots of electronic safety nets; this bike comes at a hefty price.


  1. Aprila Tuono V4R 1100 – 175.4hp


Aprila hasn’t had much luck with selling big number of its Tuono V4s, but the new 1100cc version is one incredible machine being the best in its class power.


  1. Yamaha V-Max 200.1hp


It is easy to forget the V-Max. With 200.1hp it is the only unfaired bike out there that can truly claim to be close to the 200hp mark.
