*** While being skipped in ''Power Rangers'' department, ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' has Red Buster's [[RobotBuddy Buddyroid]] Cheeda Nick transform into a motorcycle. LT-06 Tategami Lioh can also transform into a motorcycle to be ridden by CB-01 Cheetah.
*** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'': The new Dino Cycles aren't just fast, they've got tracking equipment. While only two have been seen at the same time and they're not Ranger-color-coded, instead being black and yellow like much of their equipment. They are actually created by combining two miniature unicycle-Zords, a detail shared by ''Kyoryuger'', [[spoiler: where there are six of them total, one for each of the main five and a sixth used by the second Kyoryu Violet]].
*** ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'': The team has Mega Morph Cycles, motorcycles that transform from shuriken. Like in ''Dino Charge'', they're non-personalized and the entire team gets identical ones. ''Ninninger'' didn't have anything like this, and this is the first time in a while that ''Power Rangers'' has added a set of team vehicles that ''Sentai'' didn't have.

Cheetah, the first.

Violet. In ''Dino Charge,'' we've seen them used by Rangers outside the main team, but it's unclear how many there are; you seldom see more than one or two riding them at once.

** [[Series/KamenRiderExAid Ex-aid]] downplays it a lot, bikes a rare sight indeed. However, the Bike Gamer is a Kamen Rider in his own right, named Kamen Rider Lazer, able to act on his own but his best tricks requiring a Rider as a, uh, rider. (It doesn't last because he soon gets a more standard Rider form when the first set of {{Mid Season Upgrade}}s come out. [[spoiler:Once he dies]], Ex-Aid uses Lazer's TransformationTrinket to briefly summon a non-sentient version of Bike Gamer on one occasion.
** Genm's Sports Gamer is a ''bicycle,'' but capable of BikeFu attacks. It becomes armor and the wheels can be launched as weapons.

** [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ryuki's and Knight's]] BondCreatures could become motorcycles when in SuperMode - still remaining very much sentient. All Riders in the series also have access to a common type of bike called the Ride Shooter, taking the Rider through the portal to the mirror world. The American adaptation ''[[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight Dragon Knight]]'' actually added more, by having the characters' normal motorcycles transform along with them when they became Kamen Riders. The Riders also have awesome real-world bikes during non-spandex time. There's an awesome scene near the end with six Riders, finally on the same page - even TheHero and the EvilTwin! - riding out of {{MIB}} headquarters unmorphed as a Cool Bike-riding, [[HellBentForLeather cool jacket-wearing]] squad, ready to kick butt and take names.

A Rider who turns into a bike ''rides the bike he used to turn into while also wearing a bike?'']] That's CoolBike critical mass there.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Percy Jackson]] briefly "borrows" one to get back to the troops in ''The Last Olympian''. It has the added bonus of urban coolness very appropriate for the Manhattan setting, and [[ShipTease getting Annabeth to hold on to him riding backseat.]]

*** ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'': You'd think this vehicle-themed series would have more vehicles! ButtMonkey Ziggy's little moped is all that exists in the way of bike-ish vehicles. However, the HumongousMecha are animal/vehicle hybrids, and it's Ziggy gets the shark/bike hybrid. Watch out for its tail-whip strike! …Which he first activates purely by accident.

* The 1999 Suzuki Hayabusa one of very few street-legal motorcycles in the world capable of going faster than 300kph. The main reason for this is because in 2000 all the motorcycle manufacturers agreed to install safety measures to prevent bikes from going above that when they realized that [[AwesomeButImpractical few people can safely handle bikes going faster than that]].
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MTT_Turbine_Superbike MTT Turbine Superbike]], also known as "Y2K", which is one of the few commercially '''jet engine''' motorcycles. As cool as this sounds, with its 320 shaft horsepower engine and aggressive looks, it's subverted in the sense that it's really loud, produces jet wash, and its something of a DancingBear in the land of motorcycles.
* For sheer specs alone, the Kawasaki Ninja [=H2R=] deserves a mention. It packs an inline-four, ''supercharged'', 998cc engine that produces a whopping power of 310 bhp. This handily beats most entry level sports cars and makes it as fast as most high-end supercars. Oh, and [[https://content.kawasaki.com/Content/Uploads/Products/6182/Colors/edprj15p.uw2.png its looks reek of pure badass.]]
