The Most Expensive Motorcycles in the World
Some people use their motorcycles for daily commutes, others love to hop on and travel down beautiful and open roads. Regardless, there are some options out there for the very wealthy that can give them speed or swag, depending on what they’re after.
These are the 10 most expensive motorcycles. Maybe you’ll find one in your budget.
1. Dodge Tomahawk
At 550,000 dollars, the Tomahawk will break most banks but with this much speed, who cares? The Dodge motorcycle boasts a Dodge Viper V10 motor and 4 wheels. It is truly a powerhouse that is almost guaranteed to demolish at any race.
There were only 9 of these made, so if you want one you’ll probably need to convince a fellow bike-fan to give their’s up.
2. Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship
Is there a more recognizable name in Motorcycles than Harley Davidson? For Harley lovers that have a million dollars to spare, the Cosmic Starship is one of the most visually striking bikes available.
Manufacturers Bartel along with artist James Armstrong created a masterpiece that you can take on the road.
3. Ecosse ES1 Superbike
It may cost over 3.5 million dollars, but it’s one of the most advanced motorcycles available. F1 technology was used to increase the performance of the bike. It has reduced weight but a very hefty price.
It’s the type of bike that belongs on a race track, but you’ll probably need to find a good motorcycle loan to accomplish that.
4. Ducati Testa Stretta NCR Macchia Nera Concept
Another piece of art, this limited edition Ducati is stunning to look at and with its low weight and impressive engineering, stunning to ride. The good news is that it’s only 225,000 dollars. Not chump change, but much easier to obtain than some of the others on this list.
Ducati is a well-known and respected brand. For fans of motorcycle racing, Ducati is a name that immediately strikes awe and excitement. It may have started as a concept, but you can make it a reality with a trip to a very generous ATM.
5. BMW Nehmesis
While brands like Harley are well known for their motorcycles, other brands that are known for their cars, like BMW, make amazing bikes as well. It will cost you 3 million dollars but the design and fabrication on display make this one of the coolest motorcycles in the world.
As far as driving it goes, you’ll want to be really careful. Not only will you need proper motorcycle safety gear, but you’ll also need some serious insurance too considering this bike is covered in 24-karat gold.
6. Hildebrand & Wolfemuller
Being over 120 years old, this is one of the bikes that actually increases in value over time. Spending 3 million dollars will buy you one of the first combustion engine motorcycles ever made.
The bike is beautiful and is a must-own for anybody passionate about motorcycles and their history. This is the bike that arguably started it all, so be careful with it if you’re crazy enough to take it for a spin.
7. 1949 E90 AJA Porcupine
Keeping with the trend of historic motorcycles, the Porcupine costs 7 million dollars for a reason. Only 4 were ever made, so it’s going to be tough to get one, but it’s a motorcycle that will make your garage the envy of pretty much any motorcycle enthusiast in the world.
The design and engineering were way ahead of its time when it was made and actually influenced the decisions that motorcycle manufacturers are still using today.
8. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter
Believe it or not, the most expensive motorcycle on this list was developed by a department store company. Neiman Marcus, the well-known high-end department store created 49 limited bikes that only cost 6 figures when made but now runs 11 million dollars.
The design is not just groundbreaking, it looks like it traveled here from the future. The bike’s chassis is made out of a single piece of metal and uses steampunk as a major design element.
The best part? If you manage to get ahold of one, it’s actually street legal, just be very careful
9. Suzuki AEM Carbon Fiber Hayabusa
It may have a low price in regards to most of the other motorcycles on the list, but it’s the fastest production bike available. If you want speed that you can actually drive, this is undoubtedly it.
Suzuki’s Hayabusa is an infamous bike and this one celebrates that. With carbon fiber and a design that can’t help but remind you of the bile from Akira, it’s going to draw a lot of attention, that is if they can actually see it as it blurs past others on the road.
10. 1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer
For lovers of vintage aesthetic and actual vintage vehicles, the Cyclone is one of the best options out there if you can manage to find one. There’s not many left since not many were made in the first place.
