The widely varying testing methodologies mean that, even between identical motorcycles, the acceleration times vary. Some of these differences include: driver/rider, measuring equipment, track surface conditions, weather/air temperature, and launching technique.

By 0–60 mph, 3.5 seconds or less[edit]

This list includes full production, street legal motorcycles only: concept, modified, and "one-off" motorcycles of any kind are not considered, nor are racing-only motorcycles listed here. Notes specify if test was 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) or 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph).

For comparison, an object in free fall (without any air resistance) near the Earth's surface accelerates from 0–100 km/h in 2.83 seconds and from 0–60 mph in 2.73 seconds.

By quarter mile time, 12 seconds or less[edit]

Time from standing start to 14-mile (0.40 km). This list includes full production motorcycles only; concept and "one-off" motorcycles of any kind are not included.

For comparison, an object in free fall (without any air resistance) near the Earth's surface has a quarter mile time of 9.06 seconds.
