Speed is unarguably one of the most potent catalysts that can get the adrenaline pumping, which explains the constantly expanding community of motorcycle enthusiasts. There is something about challenging the limits of man and machine, which makes people keep coming back to it for more. As a result, the number of high-performance motorcycles hitting the road has also increased significantly, most of which you can find in our online auctions featuring salvage motorcycles for sale. If you are unsure which one to choose, we give you a list of some of today’s fastest street-legal motorcycles. Take a look.


Though the chances of this behemoth landing in any auction featuring salvage motorcycles for sale are quite bleak, being the fastest street legal motorcycle ever, the MTT 420RR deserves the pole position in the listing. Building upon the legacy created by the MTT Y2K, the first street-legal turbine powered motorcycle, the MTT 420RR takes the speed game to the next level, with the makers claiming the top speed as 273.4 mph. 

Kawasaki Ninja H2R

The Kawasaki Ninja series needs no introduction, as it holds something for everyone from beginners to seasoned riders, and every option is known to be top class. After testing the water with a track-only version of the flagship, the Ninja H2R, Kawasaki finally released the street-legal version of the speed monster in 2021, with a claimed top speed of 249 mph, which is hands down the highest ever in the street-legal motorcycle category. 

Lightning LS -18

Though electric vehicles, barring exceptions such as Teslas, didn’t receive much love from auto enthusiasts during their initial days, they have finally found their place in the hearts of auto buyers, and the Lightning LS-18 is a great testament to the shift. While the motorcycle looks conventional on the surface,  it can reach a top speed of 218 mph. That sounds lightning fast to us.
