There isn't one bike to rule them all. The current crop of bikes out their are so close in power and weight that its almost like going shopping for your favorite color dirtbike. But we asked you which were your favorite and here's your top ten!

10: Husaberg FS650

Unfortunately Berg's will be no more, but that doesnt mean you can't snag a used one up. These are some of the fastest supermoto's you can get and are a ton of fun to ride on the track!

9: Suzuki RMZ 450

These are fairly rare bikes, atleast in the USA. Pulling into the pits here your welcome to a sea of red, orange and green. It's nice to see the 'zuk get nominated!

8. TM 450

I love the TM's, as do some of you obviously. These are true works of art and it is a crime against all SM riders that these are not more common. They are extremely popular in Europe and have been said to be hands down the best bike you can get on if your looking to win.

7. Aprilia SXV

I may be a bit partial to the SXV (That beautiful beast pictured is mine) but I didnt nominate her dont worry, my votes dont count. These bikes are some of if not the fastest supermoto bikes stock although they come at the price of weight. They have quite a few more pounds on any other bike and boy can you tell. That said I would never get rid of her, shes just way too much fun.

6. KTM 560

Want the power of a berg 650 or sxv 550? Want something as light as a 450? If you answered yes to those questions this is the bike for you. Fast and light, this KTM was a force to be reckoned with in the unlimited class.

5. KXF 450

The KXF's are very popular bikes. They handle great and have a ton of power. They can very easily be front runners bone stock. In all honesty the KXF is one of my favorite bikes that I have ever ridden.

4: Honda CRF 250

This  is a pretty great choice. The CRF's are extremely dominate and currently the points leader for AMA Supermoto is riding aboard one of these!

3. Husqvarna SMR

One of your favorite riders, Sean Butterman, rides a SMR so it was no surprise to see this up on the top of the list. These are great bikes with a ton of power and handle really well. Anytime I get the chance to hop on a husqy I take it. The husqy always seems to put a huge grin on my face!

2. Yamaha YZF

Honestly this one surprised me a bit. I didn't think the YZF's were that popular with most riders but I can see why. I rode a Yamaha in Mettet last year and it handled like a dream and was a breeze to back in. I even hear the 2015 models are pushing out the most HP stock!

1: KTM SMR

I don't think this was much of a surprise to anyone. One of the only supermoto bikes you can purchase in the USA in race trim and a true force to be reckoned with bone stock, the KTM SMR is your favorite race bike! Look for a review on a special KTM race bike in the next week too ;)
