Jon McKibben in the HONDA HAWK streamliner:  286.556 mph in 1971.  A reported 1972 speed of 305mph in 1972, but I can't substantiate that speed at this point.......Sponsored by American Honda, built be Reaction Dynamics and powered by two Honda CB750 engines (air cooled) turbo-charged and methanol.

Great new addition to the list !

Guy Martin riding one of
Jack Frost's Holeshot Busas gen 2
 put up a 257.727 mph backed up with
a 256.491 mph so that puts him well
up the list as his opening entry.

We are keeping our eyes on this one, waiting for more details.

MAX BIAGGI, the famous Roman Emperor and
 winner of two World Superbike Titles, slammed
down a 254mph one-way speed
with an Voxan WATTMAN ELECTRIC motorcycle

Biaggi used the 2.17-mile runway of
Marcel Dassault Airport in Châteauroux, France !

The info on the  283.182 mph Biaggi speed is up on the FIM web site

That would be good for 16 place on this list.
