Ducati 916, 996, 998, or 748. They all had the same body style (and even used the same panels).

That isn't an R model though. It's a Biposto standard or S model. The R models were ALWAYS Monoposto.

Correct!  :thumb: :thumb:
It is a Ducati 748
1000pts to AlphaFire X5 :cheers:


The Ducati 748 is one of the most recognisable sport bikes ever created. The definitive 'R' version of the 748 introduced in 1999 was a high performance, track tuned, race ready machine which took off where the 748SPS left off.

Compared to the standard Ducati 748 the 748R had a more powerful engine, superior suspension and brakes, lightweight wheels and carbon fiber fairing sections.

This one may be a little to vague for some.  This was not really mass produced and could be termed a limited edition.

In its day it was probably the most technologically advanced superbike of its time ever built.

Bam. Honda's NR750, made in the early '90s.

I believe that top speed you indicated is false, though. The bike only made 125HP, and I doubt it could pull itself to 190 or 210... maybe kph.

Correct!   -AGAIN!!!! 
It is a Honda NR750 (1992)
1000pts to AlphaFire X5

The road going exclusive Honda NR750 was a superbike well ahead of its time and only around 200 NR750's were ever manufactured. The complex engine used unique oval pistons in a V-four layout and in each of the NR750's cylinders were two conrods, four inlet valves, four exhaust valves, two spark plugs and two injectors.

A tuned and much lightened NR750 broke sevaral speed records including the flying kilometre, flying mile, standing start mile and 10km record.

Damn Dude...your on a role....  I was incorrect.  Top speed for this bike off the showroom was 160MPH.

With some mods and tweaks, they have been seen above 210mph.

Ok, This next pic is actually two bikes but I believe they are the same.

I don't know much about these bike, they were very popular, though.  On that note, NO POINTS unless you have the year also.

'94-6 ZX6R/7RR/9R.  My mom won a ZX9R in a Sport Cyclist magazine promotion, looked just like that...until we looked to the other side of the showroom and brought home a Ducati 900SS SP instead.  Those ZX series were super wide.

Correct! 
They are Kawasaki Ninja's . The Blue one is a ZX9R, I don't know about the other paint scheme.
1000pts to Mk1inCali

The ZX9R was Kawasaki's answer to the Honda CBR900RR and Suzuki's RF900. The ZX9R was designed to slot in right between the cutting edge ZX7R, and the all powerful ZX11.

Shaving every possible pound was not a high priority. The engine had a huge ammount of power. Suspension was high quality and did a fine job, as did the powerful brakes. Power in 1994 was 125bhp, with torque of 87.8. wet weight was 533lb's

Looks like a late '90s Yamaha YZF1000R "Thunderace".

This was the precursor to the R1 for Yamaha.

The only reason I know this is because a guy on the FZ1 board is selling his '97 Thunderace. His is red though, and freakin' gorgeous.

Correct!   
It is a 1996 Yamaha YZF1000R "Thunderace"
1000pts to AlphaFire X5

I don't know of any real accomplishments made by this bike, but when you see one in a crowd it stands out.
It wasn't the best all-round pick of it's competition, but Yamaha created a lighter bike with a lighter flywheel, which gave it an advantage of sorts in a drag strip or one-on-one race situation.

Like alpha said they are "Freakin gorgeous".

Now this next one is TOO easy. So,  I will make it a bit challenging.  The company that made this bike loves this color scheme apparently, but it is possible to ID the exact size and possibly the model of this bike, by comparing the rear fairing/color scheme/and what is hidden behind my green stickers.

For the 1000pts, I will need aprox. year, size, make and model of this bike.

Honda CBR600F4, I believe.

Doesn't look like the F4i paint scheme, and far too simple to be the F3 and prior schemes.

They were made from 1998(?) to 2000, when they were replaced by the F4i, which is essentially a fuel injected version of the F4 engine.

The F4 was a flagship Supersport for Honda until it was replaced by the F4i, and was the last flagship sportbike by Honda to use a banana seat. When the F4i was introduced in 2001 it gained a two tier seat and maintained it through 2002. It was replaced as the flagship sportbike in 2003 by the 600RR, but kept in the line up as the second tier sportbike, regaining the older (and more comfortable) banana seat.
