It’s all about money these days. If you have it, you can pretty much own anything.
But, when your pockets are quite deep, exorbitant expenditures on some of the most superfluous objects becomes an inevitable necessity (at least for those who seem to disregard money)
Here are some of the most expensive bikes in the world. Owning one would require more than a smile from lady luck.
MV Augusta F4 CC:
Created by Claudio Castiglioni, MV’s Director, this bike was indeed a unique combination of design, style and met the company’s marketing and strategic needs.
The motorcycle has its very own initials “CC” and costs a staggering $ 120,000 (Rs. 74 lakhs)
Built with a 1078 cc and 198 hp producing engine, this bike goes as fast as 315 kph (Whew!! That’s fast)
The bike flaunts its platinum plate that is located next to the top of its steering column. The exorbitant price comes naturally because of the limited units produced. Only 100 units of the F4CC were built. In case you buy one of these beauties, don’t forget to collect the free gift that comes along with the motorcycle.
The Bike comes with a Girard Perregaux Laureato EVO F4CC w wrist watch. The watch alone costs 12.5 lakhs. Only 100 units of the watch were produced.
Coventry Eage Flying:
This spectacular looking bike dates back to the Victorian times when Coventry Eagle, a bike manufacturer built a diverse range of motorcycles until the outbreak of the Second World War. The Bikes carried a reasonable reputation (then) because of the craftsmanship that went behind making these bikes and their dignified glory.
The Coventry-Eagle had a range of 3 motorcycles. However, during 1920’s the line-ups were chopped and changed to the availability of the engine. The most popular motorcycle was the Flying-8 that took its name from the engine’s RAC rating of 8hp.
The bike was sold at the Bonhams auction on 18 August 2011 for $ 2,65,00 or Rs. 1.66 crores.
Ecosse Titanium Series FE Ti XX:
Only 13 units of this beauty ever rolled out of Ecosse Moto Work’s garage. The company is known for its exquisite and exclusive range of motorcycles. The Ti XX is the latest inclusion in the list of superbikes. The bike is made out of Titanium and is considered one of the most expensive motorcycles in the world.
The bike costs an eye-popping $ 3, 00,000 (Rs. 1.86 crores)
The motorcycle is powered by a 2409 cc billet aluminium power plant. With 228 PS power to the rear wheel, you can fly on roads. Carbon fibre plays an important role in the detailing of most parts on this bike. The saddles have been handcrafted by posh Italian leather-maker Berluti.
That said, this bike has grade-9 titanium exhaust popes and have ceramic media shot-preened finish on them (hence the exorbitant amount)
Yamaha Roadster BMS Chopper (Nehmesis):
BMS Choppers specialize in customizing stock metric motorcycles. The Florida based custom house has modified bikes like the Yamaha V-Star, Road Star, Warrior and Honda VTX 1200.
The 1000 cc Roadster BMS chopper is certain to take a big chunk out of your savings. This Gold Plated Custom Chopper is one of the most expensive bikes in the world. Apart from its Gold Plated body, the stunning shopper looks like a show stopper.
But, taking a chopper made out of gold out on the streets might not be such a good idea. The chopper costs $ 5,00,000 (3.10 crores)
If you first lay eyes on this bike, you would probably think of it as a bike that’s worth watching on the big screen but never in real life. But, this V 10 powered, 8.3 liter engine that was caused from the Dodge Viper, powers this massive machine. With 500 HP force, this ultimate machine can go up to 420 miles an hour.
The Dodge Tomahawk has a peculiar shape but costs a massive 5, 55,000 USD that translates to Rs. 3.5 crores.
Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship:
Artist Jack Armstrong unveiled the first million dollar Harley-Davidson. That’s right, a million dollar Harley, sounds pretty insane.
The “Cosmic Starship” bike is a 1250 cc V-Rod engine. The bike carries Jack’s Cosmic Extensionalism that has been applied to the Harley-Davidson V-Rod. The Bike has been painted to appear like it has literally dropped down from outer space.
This Harley broke the record, to be the most expensive Harley ever.
Would you pay Rs. 6 crore for this Harley Davidson?
The following bike might look like it has come out of some dump, but this is recorded to be one of the most expensive bike in the world.
Some experts believe that the bikes frame alone costs an upward of $ 1 million.
The bike was designed by an extremely wealthy Turkish motorcycle fan, Tarhan Telli. The bike has a 1801 cc V-Twin engine with 125 horsepower, 6 speed transmission and 700 pound curb weight. But these are just common specifications, but the most unique thing about this bike is that it’s made out of gold.
This bike has Medusa’s head adorned on its tank and the serpent that warps all the way around the bike of the bike. This bike has been given an antique look and has been specifically designed to avoid shine. This bike also holds a record at the Guiness Book of World Records.
If you think that’s the most expensive bike, check out the following.
Ecosse Spirit ES 1:
In case even your soul craves for speed, and you have plenty of Washington’s stacked up in your account?
The Ecosse Spirit ES1 is the perfect machine for your bucks.
A collaboration of an American, Don Atchison and two Brits, Richard Glover and Andy Le Fleming resulted in this revolutionary motorcycle.
The Spirit ES1 is unlike any motorcycle presented by any manufacturer. This superbike of superbikes has the same principles that apply to building F1 cars, the same formula goes into making these brutal forces!
The bike’s speed comes from the ultra light aerodynamic design and its mighty engine. The double horsepower with a bespoke 1000cc IL4 engine thrusts the bike to 230 miles an hour. The motorcycle performs like a F1 car.
Its frameless chassis is covered in carbon fiber and luxe-leather seat. The rider maneuvers great control by sitting in a position that allows the knees to be closer to the body. The bike also has different suspension systems for its front and rear.
Bringing this bike to your garage requires the perspective buyer will have to meet with the design team to specifically build the bike to fit their needs. Details like colour, finish etc are decided by the buyer and the team.
The following 2 weeks, the buyer has to attend a minimum of 2-weeks training period with a championship racer and the team to learn how to tame this two-wheeled beast.
But, the basic requirement is $ 3.6 million (Rs. 22 crores)
Happy Riding Folks 🙂
