Top Speed Shootout Question

Here's the deal. A friend of mine and I were talking and he told me what he thought the fastest production bikes were. This is the list he gave me, and keep in mind were talking strictly top speed:

Mind you, MO doesn't do top speed testing. We do have some standards, and blasting down Avenue A in Rosamond, CA on a weekday is just too irresponsible, even for our childish selves. And we know none of you loyal MOridians would do something as illegal as this, but, well, it did rain last week, so it is winter and time for the bench-racing to start. Hypothetically speaking, of course, what's the real top speed you owners have seen?

Read on for jac121479's list...

--MO

1. Suzuki Hayabusa
2. Kawasaki ZX-12R
3. Honda CBR 1100XX
4. Honda RC-51
5. Suzuki GSX-R 1000
(1 bein the fastest and 5 bein the slug)

Is there a bike in that group that stands out just a tad or is it just me? That RC just doesn't seem like is should be sitting in the #4 slot.This friend of mine, he knows everything (just ask him), so I wasn't gonna get into it with him about it, especially since I really don't know. Anyways, my question is, if any of you guys have an idea, could you give me a rankin of like 1-10 or so of the fastest new production bikes out now? Any info would be appreciated so I can let this buddy of mine know that he doesn't know jack about what he's talking about. Thanks.
