India has transformed into 1 of the rapidly growing markets with an ever-increasing demand for high performance sport bikes in the world. Each and every sport motor cycles manufacturing company is constantly striving to launch faster and better sports bikes in the country.
A 1000 cubic centimeter 4 stroke engine paired with an ultra sexy and sporty styled body with power and speed thrown in for a good measure and tubeless tyres as standard fitment, no wonder these motor cycles capture the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts and the general public alike in India, especially the fortunate deep pocketed elites in society and others with matching spending power. Listed below are the best and fastest 1000cc sports Bikes in the country.
Best And Fastest 1000cc Sports Bikes
1. Yamaha YZF-R1:
The Yamaha YZF denotes the paradigm shift of performance, technology and drivability among class beating sports bikes. The Yamaha YZF has been designed and developed to be the perfect cornering genius of the super sport open club.
Drawing inspiration from Yamaha’s M1 Moto GP sports motorcycle, this next generation 1000 cubic centimeter YZF sports the cross plane crank shaft design with uneven firing order for producing outstanding but easy to manipulate torque and a linear exceptional throttle feel not experienced previously. Hold on, there are far more cutting edge features of the YZF than only a totally revamped engine.
The cross plane crank shaft technology has been proving its capability through victory over victory on Moto GP motorcycles produces a high technology uneven firing interval. Dissimilar to run of the mill in-line 4 engine designs where the 2 inner and 2 outer pistons move as a pair at 200 degree interval, the crossplane crank shaft has the connecting rods each at 100 degrees with a unique and unusual firing order at 280 degrees – 190 degrees – 100 degrees – 190 degrees.

Thus this technology over comes the fluctuations inherent with inertial torque at every engine revolution with accompanying peak torque traits. Rather combustion torque progressively builds up giving the driver better throttle response linearly with spectacular traction and power when handling corners.
The Yamaha YZF retains all technological advantages developed for its precursor, the YCCT. Otherwise known as Yamaha’s Chip Control Throttle, its inspiration is drawn from Moto GP’s fly by wire technology utilized to deliver throttle response instantly.
YCCI is another technology denoting Yamaha’s Chip Control Intake and is a variable in-take system that widens the spread and scope of power. Advanced fuel injection system offers optimal air and fuel mixture for the best in class power and a seamless throttle response.
Yamaha R1 sports Yamaha DMODE or the world-famous drive mode having driver preferred throttle control to program Yamaha’s chip control throttle performance characteristic for every driving condition.
2. Bajaj KTM RC8:
The Bajaj RC8 began as a 1000 cubic capacity V2 and later on it became the 1000 cubic capacity V4. Eventually KTM completely dumped these versions to develop a brand new 1150 cubic capacity twin V7 from square one within a time span of just under 24 months.
KTM’s first ever super bike is not just light in weight and is also extremely powerful. The Bajaj KTM’s RC 8 chassis is created out of molybdenum chromed steel and swing arm is manufactured out of sheet metal and anodized cast.
The RC8 is a versatile and surprisingly responsive motorcylce, with easy drivability and quite accommodative ergonomics. The motorcycle has been fitted with an adjustable sub rear frame that modifies the seat height through almost 1 inch enabling the drivers to keep both feet firmly planted when the motorcycle comes to a halt.
It’s an aggressive sports bike created exclusively for die-hard sports motorcycle fans. If you manage to handle it well, even rough and bumpy roads will transform into a super smooth ride on the Bajaj KTM’s RC 8.
3. Aprilia RSV4 Factory:
The Aprila V4 RS is another motorcycle in the ultra sports segment. This is a motorcycle that is extremely powerful with stunning looks to match. Aprilia has put in a lot of effort working day and night to bring this gem of a motorcycle to Indian shores.
The motorcycle has been powered by the 1000 cubic capacity V4 which churns out a maximum 190 brake horse power and an admirable 120 Newton metre of torque. This motorcycle has been fitted with Brembo’s disc braking system with a suspension from Ohlins.
Initial production of this bike started in the year 2009. This motorcycle was launched in February 2009 at the International Group Piaggio Convention in Italy, Milan. The motorcycle is powered by the 1000 cubic capacity V4 engine, the manufacturer’s 1st produced 4 cylinder engine. The company claims that the current engine was specifically designed for super bike racing and the engine is capable of producing over 210 brake horse power in a race bike setting.
4. Suzuki GSX-R1000:
The 2012 Suzuki GSXR would once again prove itself to be a legendary motorcycle with spectacular throttle response, acceleration and power at middle range speeds combined with awesome fuel efficiency. Developing and engineering dream bikes to drive fast is never the top priority at Suzuki, rather the ability to turn at your command and stop as you prefer is equally important to Suzuki as it is for the rider.
The GSXR series delivers outstanding braking capability fitted with Brembo’s braking system and stainless steel heat-resistant brake disc. The motorcycle corners and maneuvers like a charm with an extremely responsive suspension system and a great chassis design.
These are the unique foundational technologies of the GSXR series of motorcycles and the foundational base upon which it will continue to be developed upon will thrive for many more centuries to come. Indeed it is the global support for its motorcycles and Suzuki’s intense passion for excellence and innovation that will mark the launch of the 1 millionth GSXR motorcycle to be rolled out of its factory in record time.
. MV Agusta F4 RR Corsa Corta:
The motorcycle has a 4 cylinder 4 stroke engine churning out a awe inspiring 250 brake horse power. An unusual fact is even though there is an increase of power, the original F4 had a maximum top speed of 190 miles per hour and the F4 Corsa RR Corta has a 185 miles per hour top speed.
The company has enhanced the acceleration time for a better response from the engine which has resulted in a slight decrease in the maximum top speed.
6. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R:
Kawasaki ZX10R Ninja is a sports motorcycle, a worthy sequel and successor to the hugely successful ZX9R. The motorcycle had been originally launched in 2005 with minor updations in 2006. The motorcycle design combines an ultra slim and compact chassis, radial brakes, and less weight. In 2005 and 2006 the Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R won the best super bike award from the magazine, cycle world and the internationally prestigious master bike competition award.
Based on the data published in the year 2008 by the Institute of Highway Safety Insurance in United States of America, the Ninja ZX10R has the country’s highest claim rate loss from collision damage of any other motor cycle registered between 2002 and 2008. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R has been powered by a 16 valves in line 4 dual overhead cam shaft engine with the tried, tested and trusted liquid cooling Kawasaki’s technology incorporated.
The high-powered engine of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R is the sole reason behind the ultra-high performance thus enabling it to deliver a power of 140 kW at 12,600 rpm. The motorcycle’s torque does not settle anywhere below the mark of 84 pound per foot at 8800 revolutions per minute.
