BEST STANDARD: BMW S1000R

Ten Best Bikes of 2014

The offerings in the once niche sport naked category have grown so vast it appears to have become the new standard. Why settle for only comfort and practicality when you can have that and more? BMW currently offers a superior answer. The S1000R delivers superbike acceleration and track-sharp handling when you want it yet possesses a civil side that is just a few button presses away. Adrenaline or relaxation, the S1000R's HP4-derived electronics suite administers both and sets a higher standard.
