Cold air please.
I agree with other saying about cooler air offering more power as it is denser therefore you increase volumetric efficiency. Basically the amount that you can fill up the cylinder with ignitable fuel/air before compression/power strokes.
I always thought that colder fuel would offer the same but from what some have said it seems that warmer is better? I did read up a while ago that GP teams freeze their fuel in some cases for longer tracks especially so that can have it extremely cold when they go to fill up their fuel tanks, as it allows them to put more fuel in initially as it has contracted. I can't remember what bike mag I read that in but it did sound rather extreme...
