The 2014 Ten Best list demonstrates the rise of European motorcycle manufacturers, as seven of the top ten motorcycles hailed from Austria, Germany or Italy.

The coveted "Best Superbike" title went to Italian manufacturer Ducati for its 1199 Superleggera. German-based BMW placed multiple models on the list for the fourth consecutive year, including the "Sport Touring" category, which it took in each of those years. Closing out the European invasion was Austrian manufacturer KTM, emerging as the bike to beat in the "Dual-Sport/Enduro," "Open-Class Streetbike" and "Adventure Bike" categories. A notable non-European winner was the reborn American-made brand Indian with its Chief Classic, chosen as "Best Cruiser."
