6. BMW S1000RR/HP4
Despite a low-slung riding position designed for roadracing, there is no denying the wheelie-inducing motivation provided by the best power-to-weight ratio of any motor vehicle in the world. The S1000 motor spins the dyno wheel to a tune of 193 crankshaft-rated horsepower, and the HP4 version scales in at 439 pounds with its tank full of fuel. That translates into just 2.27 pounds per pony. Bugatti’s 1200-hp Veyron 16.4 Super Sport carries with it 4400 pounds of car, so the million-dollar-plus car is burdened with 3.67 pounds per horse.
So, if you’re looking for the best option for wheelie-ing at triple-digit speeds, the S1000RR/HP4 is the bike of choice.
