10. John Kocinski

There are other single-championship winners from which to choose, and, if you were watching World Superbike or Grand Prix racing in the early to mid-90s, you’ll know what a polarizing personality John Kocinski was, but the man was a talented motorcycle racer. He was the only guy to give Honda’s RC45 a World Superbike Championship, and he did so during the Ducati 916/996 domination with riders like Carl Fogarty and Troy Corser. For that, he deserves number 10 in this list.
