With the Kawasaki ZX-11 being the fastest production bike in the world, Honda tried to make
a faster bike through the CBR1100XX BlackBird. Blackbird is a nickname used for Lockheed's SR-71 fightet jet, which is the fastest aircraft in the world. It was recorded to reach the top speed of 178.5 mph (287.3 km/h), which is faster than the Kawasaki ZX-11 top speed, which is 175 mph (281.6 km/h). 2 years later, the Suzuki made a faster bike, the Hayabusa, which was able to reach the top speed of 194 mph (312 km/h).
