The Honda CBX. Why? Because it's Badass, Dorkus.

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Okay, yeah, we don't generally post on motorcycles, and when we do, we pretty much never post on production motorcycles, so please don't take this as a warrant to send in your Harley-Davidson XLCQZFXZF. We probably don't care. But dude, the CBX was just so totally badass. Sure, the Hayabusa makes more power. Sure, modern middleweights will run rings around it. And a well-done bobber beats it in the menacingness derby. But yo, put this thing in context. And when you do that, the total hairballality of the thing becomes clear. A six-cylinder motorcycle with sporting pretensions in the late 1970s? Son, that's about as beautiful as it gets.
