Motorcycles there are many but only ten are the most expensive. As in the world of cars, perhaps with greater power and exposure, motorcycles also deploy a luxury market with exclusive models for real millionaires. Units with futuristic aesthetics, vintage designs, exacerbated features, large displacement engines, unique materials, advanced technologies and retro conservations are some of the components that these extraordinary models hold.
Its only condition: Mass production. They do not include unique specimens with sophisticated designs or embellished components or pretentious properties that are collectors’ treats. They must be available to consumers.
They are fantasies on two wheels. From almost USD 100 thousand up to USD 300 thousand, ten models of motorcycles are combined that combine the best dispositions of the world of motorcycles. Such superior characteristics and slogans feed the value of the models.
10Confederate B120 Wraith – USD 92,500
The cheapest in the ranking of the most expensive bikes. The price is not justified precisely because of its mechanical performance: equipped only with two cylinders that provide 125 horsepower. Its value boasts an innovative design. Made from aeronautical quality aluminum and carbon fiber that achieve a perfect balance between retro aesthetics and futuristic properties. More style, less power.
9Vyrus 987 C3 4V – USD 103,800
A motorcycle agile. It is a manufacture of the Italian company Vyrus, specialist in the construction of fresh, dynamic and powerful designs. It combines low weight with sidereal benefits: propelled by a 1200 cc Ducati engine that gives it 211 horsepower, only weighs 158 kilos in the balance. Its silhouette gives a sporty, almost motocross review (especially for thin tires), which serves as a visual confirmation of the mechanics of an agile motorcycle.
8MV Agusta F4CC – USD 120,000
90% of this bike is handmade . There resides its high price. It announces to have the best components of the market. The titanium valves, in fact, were designed in collaboration with Ferrari. In addition, numerous mechanical touches contribute to its 200 horsepower: polished ports, new geometry of the combustion chamber, lighter pistons. MV Agusta has built 100 copies of his F4CC, a motorcycle inspired by a one-time personal project by CEO Claudio Castiglioni.
7NCR MH TT – USD 130,000
Only twelve units of this tribute motorcycle were built, a delight for collectors. They were manufactured to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Mike Hailwood’s victory on the Isle of Man, one of the most prestigious races in the world. Its power is not surprising: the MH TT only has 130 horsepower. But its titanium frame weighs only 5 kilos and the bike itself declares 136 kilos. Its silhouette and color remind of motorcycles with vintage reviews.
6NCR Leggera 1200 Titanium Special – USD 145,000
The first legal street bike of this company dedicated to design career motorcycles. The NCR Leggera weighs about 150 kilos, a lightness possibly attributable to the studied manufacture of competition bikes. It has, at par, first-class components: the suspension developed directly together with the help of the firm Öhlins, brakes manufactured by Brembo, carbon fiber wheels BST and a titanium frame that weighs 4.8 kilograms. Its marked suspension and its aerodynamic shape show the competitive descent of this bike.
5Icon Sheene – USD 172,000
Pays tribute to the motorcycle world champion: the British driver Barry Sheene. It consisted of a limited edition of only 52 copies. When going out to the market, it was called “the most powerful motorcycle in the world” . It produces 250 horsepower with the help of a Garrett turbocharger, but the Suzuki engine is 1,400 CC. As an added value to each coveted unit, it carries a hand-painted image of a playing card.
4MTT Turbine Streetfighter – USD 175,000
In 2000, the MTT Turbine Superbike launched its Y2K, manufactured by Rolls Royce. With its Allison 250-C18 turbocharged engine, it could reach over 200 mph. In 2008, the company revealed that it was going to launch a version called “Streetfighter” with a capacity of 420 horsepower. With a Rolls Royce-Allison turbine, the bike achieves 320 horsepower in its Pirelli Diablo tire. All this power connected to a two-speed automatic gearbox. The MTT was recorded reaching the record speed of 365 kilometers per hour and according to the Guinness world record book it is “the most powerful production motorcycle in the world”. An authentic adrenaline machine.
3NCR Macchia Nera Concept – USD 225,000
Designed by visionary Aldo Drudi, it is called “Macchia Nera” (“Black Point”, in Italian) in reference to the wake it leaves once it picks up speed en route. Its high value does not respond precisely to the mechanical performance: a Ducati 998R engine, with 185 HP and four valves per cylinder with a six-speed transmission. But his balance denounces a ridiculous weight: 134 kilos. The lightest bike in the list.
2NCR M16 – $ 232,500
Almost a quarter of a million dollars costs this NCR M16, weighing only 144 kilos. It has a carbon fiber frame, brakes of ceramic matrix composite material and a specially tuned Öhlins suspension, which is often used in MotoGP competitions.
1Ecosse Titanio Series FE Ti XX – USD 300,000
