People like riding on the fastest motorcycle in the world as this gives them the outrageous feeling as the king of the road. They ride with their hair blowing on their faces, rush like a gangster or in the image they want to exude and feel extreme adrenaline rush when the speed gets over the top. But riding and owning a motorcycle does not happen easily because states from different areas in the world have their distinction over what is street legal and what is not.
Motorcycles are known to be street legal when they come within the decibel specifications a state proclaims. Different states vary their own definition of noise level on motorcycles. To cite an example, in California a street legal motorcycle is the one with an engine that does not go beyond 88 decibels. With this, makers of motorcycles all over the world have their own guidelines in making their bikes within the specifications of street legalities so that riders can buy their bikes wherever they are on earth.
