The 15 Most (Ridiculously) Expensive Motorcycles In The World!

These motorcycles are expensive due to their structure, design, speed and outlook. And they are strictly for millionaires and billionaires.

Guys have always been insanely crazy for motorcycles and heavy bikes. And, keeping in mind boys madness for motorbikes, companies have built bikes, which instantly attract the attention of the youth because  of their looks, design, speed, apart from  their brazenly expensive price tags. Here are the most ridiculously expensive motorcycles in the world:

1. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter – $11,000,000

Neiman Marcus is known more for its retail stores and is hardly a name synonymous with motorcycles. It comes as a surprise then that they are responsible for the most expensive luxury motorcycle in the world thanks to its Limited Edition Fighter. When the Fighter was released it had a starting price of an already high $110,000. Source: myfirstclasslife.com

It is a relief when a new motorcycle project is announced whose claims a) are arguably new but do not exist outside physical possibility, and b) are not founded upon T-shirt sales and nostalgia. Source: cycleworld.com

You would think that the most famous motorcycle manufacturer in the United States would have a few limited edition versions that were worth more than $1 million, but this is the only one. The Cosmic Starship was created in collaboration with Jack Armstrong, an artist that hand painted the motorcycle’s design. This world-renown duo is sure to attract those who appreciate motorcycles and art, because otherwise you likely won’t fork over the dough. Source: myfirstclasslife.com

 

7. Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike – $550,000

The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with four wheels beneath it. The engine breathes through twin throttle bodies mounted right up front (the two round things above the front tires are). While the Tomahawk has the same number of tires as a car, it keeps the motorcycle form factor otherwise. Source: allpar.com

 

8. Ecosse Titanium Series FE Ti XX – $300,000

This is the Ecosse Titanium Series FE Ti XX, a motorcycle with a price tag that’s almost as big as its name. You see it cost a whopping $300,000 which makes it the world’s most expensive motorcycle, a title which I suppose, someone has to have. I remember way back in 1994 when Ducati first released the stunning 916. It was $12,400 and I thought that was insane, especially when you could go out and buy a new GSX-R for $7,000. Source: ridelust.com

 

9. NCR Macchia Nera – $225,000

In case you don’t speak the native Italian language of Ducati, the Macchia Nera translates into English as “Black Spot.” The reason is because you are likely to leave a few marks on the road when you crank up the accelerator on this superbike. Very few were made by Ducati since it was only a concept designed in 2012, which is where the $225,000 price tag originates. Source: myfirstclasslife.com

 

10. MTT Turbine Streetfighter – $175,000

MTT (Marine Turbine Technologies) released the Turbine Superbike, also known as the Y2K Turbine Superbike back in 2000. The machine was made by Rolls Royce and can reach speeds of well over 200 miles per hour with its Allison Model 250-C18 turboshaft engine. Unlike other jet fuel based engines, Turbine Superbike could accept diesel or kerosene. The production of these vehicles stopped in 2005, but MTT wasn’t done with the model quite yet. Source: myfirstclasslife.com

11. Icon Sheene – $172,000

Barry Sheene was a great world champion motorcycle racer from the United Kingdom, and the Icon Sheene was built as a tribute to the legend. Only 52 of these bikes were made, and each one of them featured an image of a single playing card that was painted by hand. The Ace of Spades, of course, was the first one off of the line. Source: myfirstclasslife.com

12. NCR Leggera 1200 Titanium Special – $145,000

Based off of the Ducati Hypermotard, this is NCR’s first street legal bike; the company typically makes professional racing bikes. The NCR Leggera weighs a meager 328 pounds – a lightness possibly attributable to the company’s history of having to make zippy racing bikes – but it has top-notch components, including suspension developed with the help of Öhlins, brakes made by Brembo, carbon fiber BST wheels, and a 10.6 pound titanium frame. Its intense suspension and aerodynamic, hawk-like frame don’t allow an onlooker to forget this bike’s competitive ancestry. Source: therichest.com

 

13. NCR MH TT (Mike Hailwood) – $130,000

Few sportsmen have made such an indelible impact on the fast moving worlds of motorcycle and car racing as the legendary MIKE HAILWOOD™. The son of a millionaire who bought him the best machinery that money could buy, he quickly cast aside the ‘rich man’s kid’ image which had been thrust upon him to earn the respect and admiration of his peers through the enormity of his talent, the strength of his personality and his outrageous sense of fun. Source: mikethebike.com

 

14. MV Agusta F4CC – $120,000

WHAT makes a motorcycle — not some rare collectible, but a new, limited-production model — worth $120,000? That was the first question asked by most everyone I told about my miles of test-riding the MV Agusta F4CC, a wickedly purposeful machine from Varese, Italy. The best I could do was to answer with another question: What makes a few special wristwatches cost, say, half a million dollars? For that matter, what justifies the price of a fountain pen or a bottle of wine that sells for tens of thousands of dollars? Source: nytimes.com

 

15. Vyrus 987 C3 4V – $110,000

If you’ve always had your heart set on a TRON Lightcycle — a working one, not a matchbox toy — you’d better start saving. The going rate (as much as there is a going rate for one-off movie-replica collectibles) is $77,000. Source: gizmodo.com
