The Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle series has been around for decades, and there’s no sign of stopping anytime soon. They’ve just released their nutified 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R ($14,889), touted to be the world’s fastest accelerating motorcycle (translation: empty your bladder before you ride). Aside from its appropriate nuclear green paint scheme, the all-new bike is powered by a 1,441cc four-stroke, liquid cooled DOHC inline four cylinder. It boasts increased air flow and a higher compression ratio for amped up performance. No performance numbers yet, but you can expect it to be a rubber roaster. You should also plan to develop a vise-like grip to keep your buttocks planted firmly. It’s not all brutality, though. Six speed transmission, traction control, increased frame rigidity and throttle-by-wire controls ensure that all that power will be bolstered by state-of-the-art technology. Thankfully, it will also come in other colors.

Price: $14,889
