Best Motorcycle Brands of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Yamaha

Japanese Big 4 are so Huge Companies that you get the slightest difference between them. Especially Honda & Yamaha has the Most Sales. Kawasaki & Yamaha for Best Performance and Track Racing. Honda & Yamaha for Best Chassis. Suzuki for most affordable and cheapest of the Japanese. Now We can see Yamaha comes for Performance, Easiest Handling, Consumers Favourite and OFFCOURSE the YAMAHA Brand Image with all time star riders as brand Ambassadors (Valentino Rossi, Agostini, Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson & Jorge Lorenzo).

Right, the person who made this list is very intelligent, should add suzuki on 2nd position as they made hayabusa, fastest motorbike.

Yamaha and Honda give each other good competition, both are on top, in motorcycle manufacturing. The slight difference between the two is : Honda gives more miles per gallon and Yamaha gives more power per gallon. Thus I opt this performance and joy to ride quality factor of Yamaha over the better economy of Honda.

Very good bike...

2 Honda Honda Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is a Japanese public multinational conglomerate corporation primarily known as a manufacturer of automobiles, aircraft, motorcycles, and power equipment.

Honda, without a doubt, has the most reliable, and trail ready bikes of all time. Not to many people can compete with Honda's technology. They may not be "Race Ready" machines, but they sure as hell will get you home when the others are broke down.

No other motorcycle company can compete with Honda's technology. That's why they manufacture reliable automobiles, trucks, planes, and small engines. Who else can say that?

It a awesome strong motorbike brand

Honda should be no. 1

3 Ducati

Italians knows how to make fast things like Ferrari or Lamborghini - Ducati is the perfect example of joy on wheels

The Ferrari of Motorcycles.

Italians do it better! Everybody knows Italian quality and engineering are top notch. Sure, Japanese bikes are good... But nowhere near as good as Ducati.

4 Harley-Davidson Harley-Davidson

RATING- 1000/1000- VERY PROUD OF YOU HARLEY DavidSON

Harley Davidson is everybody's #1 favorite American legend bike company for everybody who wants to ride for the freedom of the open road, I love you so much Harley Davidson and Harley Davidson has the absolute best 20th-21st century history, they make great motorcycles and they are better than any other bike company and Harley Davidson is making everybody having more fun riding and riding Harley's is more fun and more cruising riding on the highway than other bike companies but I want to fall in love with a Harley motorcycle that I always dream of since when I was 11 about 3 years ago and I wanted to ride in Harley gear to the freedom of the open road, HARLEY DavidSON IS AWESOME, THEY ARE A LOT BETTER THAN OTHERS

Most people do not understand what brand means. It has nothing to do with the bike at all. All bikes are made of the same stuff. The brand is the logo and name it carries. I voted for the Harley brand because even 5 year old kids know the name "Harley". I don't own a Harley but people who don't know anything about motorcycles know the Harley name (Brand Winner)

No other bike manufacturer puts as much into everything that surrounds the ride itself. The rallies, the showrooms, the open days, BBQ's, bands. The clothing range is exceptional. No other brand can come close to the Harley experience. I've had Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW over the years and altho they were all great bikes I always dreamed of owning a Harley since I was a teenager. Now I have one its everything I ever dreamed off.

I like the noise and the make

6 BMW BMW

BMW makes awesome cars, as well as awesome bikes. The revving of the bikes are so powerful, and so is their speed. Plus those bikes look extremely cool. Wish I could have one.

Bullet proof bikes! Made to last and easy to repair! I have had may bikes over my life and BMW is by far the most reliable and well engineered. If you are looking for reliable and problem free BMW is the wise choice. Buying a motorcycle is a personal choice based on many factors but if you can only afford one bike you have to make the right call that you have to live with. It always comes down to Image vs. Reliability but whatever you ride you are respected for having the Balls to Ride it! IMBK

You cannot talk about a fun bike to ride without talking about BMW, they make feel like you are on the top of motorcycle engineering. They make the thing that you wouldn't think is possible like squeezing more and more power out of their bike and comfort and luxury on two wheels

Not so reliable

7 Suzuki

They make bikes in a special manner. almost like harley Davidson in the sense that, you don't know what the hype is all about until you ride one. and they are very emotional motorcycles, carries a heart somewhere in there...

I have owned two street bikes both Suzuki. I love my M90. I will own nothing but Suzuki.

They have a great factory. Their fabrication it's great an rarely the bike breaks. The off road bikes has got a exceptional balance with the enginye and the chassis.

Suzuki doesn't just produce bikes... they produce emotions... they have one of the best gear boxes... and their fury and comfort are never matchable... they should be in top 3...Only companies that are suitable for top position are Suzuki and Yamaha.

8 Aprilia

Fastest bikes for people that knows how to ride a bike
By the way the hayabusa is not the fastest bike in the world, ever heard about Desmosedici or tomahawk

In my opinion, Aprilia have the best naked bikes in the world (shiver 750 ), this bike is full of power and passion.

Best quality, performance, and styling... All for a reasonable price.

Aprilia is the main competitor for Ducati. So far I saw nothing less for Aprilia if it is compared against Ducati. It is just that Aprilia need to be more visible through better promotional plans internationally. Anyway... I am trully happy to own my Aprilia Shiver. It is truly awesome!

9 Triumph Triumph Triumph is a Canadian hard rock power trio that was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Between the band's 16 albums and DVDs, Triumph has received 18 gold and 9 platinum awards in Canada and the United States.

Just take a look at the street triple

Best made bikes in the world

They're pretty decent, although its a bit rare to see people zipping down the highway on them. Then again imported bikes will never beat american classics in terms of availability and popularity in america. (i own a yamaha vstar so I'm not one to talk, but correct me if I'm wrong)

Best of the best

10 KTM

Ktm is the best motorbike brand there bikes are much better than hondas they should be a close second to yamaha

KTM is the fastest growing brand in America and among the top worldwide. They currently sell more dirt bikes than Honda and Yamaha combined and are starting to eat their market share on the road. They have the most advanced motorcycle stability system in the world. The best bikes. Period.

Innovation is their middle name. Yet they retain their immaculate quality.

KTM is best bike ever

The Contenders

11 MV Agusta

Hands down the most phenomenal machine I have ever ridden. The beauty, the engineering, and innovation are world class. You really feel like your driving an exotic machine, the sound and power of the bike is enough to make you drool...and the looks of the bike is an entire story of its own. I ride an MV Agusta almost everyday to work and I still get chills down my spine every time I twist the throttle and hear the exhaust rumble with all its glory!

Most beautiful, fastest and legendry bike maker. It will take some time to grow its image again but sooner it will be no. 1...

Ferrari of motorcycles, great grand prix records.. Most beautiful bikes. And all of that its " Art Of Motorcycle" man.

In my opinion this is the best company for bikes in the world

It's very best bike it's look awesome and it's very soft gearing bike and it's very good performing than ktm

12 Bajaj

It's not only the product that they make but also the price at which they offer matters - so that enthusiasts can go for their bikes. Pulsar 220 is their best bike!

One of the best motorcycle made by bajaj is the Pulsar/Rouser 135 ls for its power, speed and best of all Technology ( 4V DTS-i, TRICS I,
)

I've been using a Bajaj for 6 years, and it's quite reliable! Especially the twin spark technology rocks! Although the bikes need some love and a lot of attention to run a long life, but I can live with it as long as it gives me more power and mileage per gallon!

I love new Bajaj dominour 400

13 Royal Enfield

Of course this is the best brand for manufacturing touring motorcycles in india they are like harley davidson in india... But wait enfield will also introduce 700 cc-1000 cc segment which will compete against harley... Enfield bikes are build in a way to run for many years... There is no doubt that enfield is the best and oldest survivng motorcycle brand (1890 I think)... Love you re

I guess Because of Indian brand, it was placed in 13. It is not a bike, the machine. Boys rides bike but men rides Enfield. you can feel your soul and heart. World war history can tell you about this machine. Love it...ride it...ride ride ride...

This is the best brand in India...

Great ever experianced..
Iam an owner of royal enfield himalayan

16 TVS

I own a TVS star city bike. The product is too good. I had a good experience in price and class. Even after 5 years of the product I took, the performance of the bike is awesome.

Apache is the best bike ever made by an Indian manufacturer. Especially the 2012 upgrade, which made it even better

TVS ROCK Z 125 much better

I love my tvs sport it's really run in any condition

17 Indian

I love my Indian, greatest bike I have ever owned. Everyday when I am riding people pay it complements.

Indian Chief and Kawasaki Drifter are the coolest bikes ever made. The style, body lines, and flowing fenders are over the top compared to any factory made bike.

Finest bike I have ever ridden. Thank you Polaris for their resurrection in classic style and modern technology! Way better than my Honda

The scout bobber is the coolest mid size bike ever made

20 Moto Guzzi

STILL SEARCHING THE BEST BIKE... THE QUALITY, LESSER FUEL CONSUMPTION, AFFORDABLE PRICE, AVAILABLE PARTS, PRESENTABLE FORM, PHYSICAL FEATURES, LOCATION OF DISTRUBUTORS AND SERVICE CENTER...

Pure coolness and style and so different

Ah, it should be in the top 10 list man.

One wise man said: "MOTO GUZZI is longer time on the market, than Aprilia and Ducati together"...Moto guzzi Griso SE is my favorite.
