With new bikes being released each and every year, the motorcycle market is alive with innovation. There are new engines, materials, designs, and more coming out all of the time. All of these changes affect how motorcycles look and shape our perspective of the coolest-looking motorcycles.
In this article, I’m going to break down the 7 best-looking motorcycles both in the market and being released in 2022. Of course, all of these bikes are cool and good-looking according to my own subjective opinion.
The best Looking Motorcycles of 2022:
- Ducati Scrambler Nightshift
- Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 3rd Gen
- Arch Nazaré
- BMW R 18
- Ducati XDiavel Black Star
- Kawasaki Z H2 SE
- Honda CB1000R Neo Sports Cafe
Ducati Scrambler Nightshift
For this new model, Ducati sold a limited 2,000-unit run based on its Scrambler Icon introduced last year. The Nightshift edition has a more aggressive look thanks to the matte-black color scheme and graphics with gold lettering. A set of black spoke wheels complete the look, while underneath is an auxiliary braking system from Bosch that can be removed from the bike when it’s time for a canyon cruise, track day, or enduro adventure.
This motorcycle is one of the best-looking motorcycles on the market, in my opinion of course. Not to hate on Harley Davidson, but they are usually known for retro bikes and when comparing this bike to similar Harley Davidson bikes, the nightshift just dominates. In my opinion, of course, bikes like the nightshift and the Ducati streetfighter are cooler bikes suited to a younger crowd than similar Harley Davidson offerings.
The first time the motorcycle world was introduced to this bike, it was love at first sight. The matte black and gold lettering gives a sleek look that will make any head turn an eyeful of this motorcycle. The riding style is playful and the power delivery is plenty for newer riders or riders with more than a decade of experience.
Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 3rd Gen
The GSX-1300R Hayabusa 3rd Gen is no ordinary ‘Busa, though it retains the same engine configuration, frame geometry and wheelbase of previous editions. If you’re a sports bike rider looking for sport bikes that turn heads. You should seriously consider the GSX-1300R.
The new motorcycle comes with lean angle sensitive abs and slimmed-down bodywork that gives it an aggressive look while also losing some weight in the process thanks to its lightweight aluminum frame. This new edition features LED headlights and turn signals while still retaining its trademark inline four-cylinder engine design that screams performance.
This new motorcycle looks good enough for me to want to get one! With a sleek black paint job accented by gold, this beautiful motorcycle looks great from any angle. A true beauty on the road if you ask me!
Arch Method 143
The ARCH Method 143 is described as the ultimate production concept motorcycle. Ever since the launch of the bike, it’s taken the biking world by storm.
Created to realize an ambition of what could be achieved in motorcycle design. And it really has! With an incredibly futuristic look, no other bike matches this.
A concept led by the design idea of layers and materials, carbon fiber, aluminum, and fine leather. Layers that slide under or cover one another, intersect without interrupting the full intention of the master shape or continuity. With cutting-edge performance mixed with a sleek look, this motorcycle looks more futuristic than anything else I’ve seen on two wheels. Including electric bikes, such as Zero motorcycles, or any bike with an electric motor. Frankly, this bike is worthy of motorcycle art.
Founded in an ultra-light carbon fiber mono-cell chassis, providing fuel storage, air filtration, and strength, never before used in an American production motorcycle with all the modern bells and whistles of the newest technology.
Each ARCH Method 143 is a one-of-a-kind concept motorcycle. Offering ownership experience, unlike any other production bikes.

BMW R 18
The motorcycle has an amazing look, simple but very attractive at the same time.
Within its essence lies a strong engine that produces 72 kW of power and 120 Nm of torque which are available from just 1 900 rpm to 8 000 rpm. The 4 cylinders in-line engine is placed behind the rider position which allows for a central balancing point and low center of gravity making it great for cornering.

The engine is liquid-cooled and has a large capacity of 18 liters which is perfect when riding long distances. The bike’s frame is made from steel trellis that makes it light enough to provide agile handling without compromising rider safety.
The front suspension in this model is ʻUPSIDE DOWNʼ telescopic fork with 41 mm diameter tubes and central axle; adjustable preload, compression, and rebound damping give the best stability on any terrain.
Ducati XDiavel Black Star
The Ducati XDiavel Black Star is one of the most good looking motorcycles on the market today. It’s sleek design and black paint job make it stand out from the competition. If you’re looking for a motorcycle that will turn heads, the Ducati XDiavel Black Star is the perfect choice.
I’m not sure how Ducati is able to produce this extreme of a motorcycle. The name alone should give you a hint as to what it’s capable of. When I think of a cruiser, I picture a bike that has a nice cushioned seat and a lower height.
This bike isn’t an electric motorcycle, however, has both those things plus an engine that produces 152 horsepower at the wheel when you hit 9500rpms. The top speeds and more torque that this bike can produce compared to the base model Ducatis make it city driving extremely fun.
The Ducati XDiavel Black Star is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s only going to be available in 50 units so if you have your eye on one of these bikes, be prepared to pay up!
The Ducati XDiavel Black Star is a great motorcycle for anyone looking for something different. It has a unique design that will set it apart from the competition.
It’s also fast and powerful, making it perfect for anyone who wants to ride on the open road. If you’re looking for a motorcycle that’s sure to turn heads, the Ducati XDiavel Black Star is a perfect choice.
Kawasaki Z H2 SE
The Kawasaki Z H2 is another great motorcycle that’s sure to turn heads. It has a really sleek design with the body panels hugging the frame. This makes it look even more aerodynamic then other motorcycles on the market today. One thing that might turn some people off about this motorcycle is its price, but it’s definitely worth every penny if you have them!
The Kawasaki Z H2 looks like it’s built for speed and performance. Its sleek design and aerodynamic body panels make it look like a bike that’s built for the track.
It’s also one of the most expensive motorcycles on the market, but it’s definitely worth the price. If you’re looking for a motorcycle that’s sure to turn heads, the Kawasaki Z H2 is a perfect choice.
Honda CB1000R Neo Sports Cafe
The Honda CB1000R Neo Sports Cafe is an induction into the family of Honda’s “Cafe Racer” series. It’s a cool concept that combines the classic design of many European sports bikes with modern styling and engineering. The result is a beautiful-looking motorcycle that will turn heads wherever you go!

For a honda, which most choose for reliability, not design, this bike strikes a firm balance between good looks, performance, and reliability. The bike has a wet weight of 467 lbs or 212 kg which makes sense for a bike of this size.
There you have it! Some of the coolest motorcycles on the market currently, you can find these motorcycles detailed specs on the motorcycle manufacturers websites including if they have multiple ride modes, traction control settings, cruise control, cylinder heads count, launch control features, or fuel-efficiency.
Some people might be expecting more Harley Davidson or royal Enfield bikes on this list, or maybe a triumph Bonneville, but over a decade the best motorcycles looks-wise, have switched to more contemporary brands.
