Any motorist knows that some car models cost thousands, hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars. But not everyone knows that a motorcycle can cost no less.
Today, the title of "The most expensive motorcycle in the world" belongs to the Ecosse Spirit ES1 motorcycle, which is estimated at 3.6 million US dollars. The advanced designers of Formula 1 worked on the creation and development of this model.
The most expensive motorcycle in the world was equipped with the best modern devices that significantly reduced its resistance to air. It develops speed up to 400 km/h. An indicator truly worthy of admiration! The most expensive motorcycle was equipped with ceramic brakes mounted on the front wheel in order to improve the performance of the braking system as a whole.
For the first time this modification was released in 2009 in the amount of 10 pieces, which were immediately sold, despite their huge cost.
The product was supplied in two versions: with wheels designed for experienced riders, and a more sporty version. The most expensive motorcycle has a unique electronic control mechanism. Thanks dearmaterials, it weighs only 120 kg. The body of the motorcycle is made so that the legs of the "pilot" are completely "hidden", thanks to which the speed of the bike is much higher.
The Ecosse Titanium Series Ti XX must be added to the list of the most expensive bikes in the world. The bike does not claim the title of "Most Expensive Motorcycle", but its cost is still impressive, amounting to $ 275,000. The motorcycle is completely assembled by hand. It weighs 192 kg, while having a power of 200 hp. The engine of this motorcycle was made from a single piece of aluminum, which is manufactured by Ecosse Moto Works Inc. The company is engaged in the manufacture of exclusive models for customers. When buying a bike, the buyer will receive an expensive watch as a gift.
The Dodge Tomahawk does not claim to be the Most Expensive Motorcycle either, but it is quite capable of claiming the title of the coolest bike.
Its creators said that the motorcycle is capable of accelerating to 640 km/h. It is still unknown if this has been tested in practice. It can accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. The approximate cost of the bike is 550 thousand dollars. The motorcycle has an eight-liter 10-cylinder engine with 500 horsepower.
The list of the coolest motorcycles includes the MTT Turbine Superbike, which costs about 200 thousand dollars. Only five such bikes are produced per year, and it is difficult to buy one. The motorcycle has a Rolls Royce engine,320 horsepower. The bike can reach a speed of 365 km / h. It is the only motorcycle with this engine that has been approved for road use. The bike weighs 227 kg.
In addition to the latest innovations, there is still a lot of interest in old, unique motorcycles. One of these is the Brough Superior SS80, which was released in 1922. At one time, its owner was the founder of Brough Superior - George Brough. In 2012, the bike was put up for auction with a starting price of £250,000. The bike was originally designed as a racing bike (and Bro won 51 races on it). Later it was converted into a regular bike. Already in the 50s, Roger Allen became the new owner of the motorcycle, who returned it to its original form. This man successfully raced it until 1991.
There are models that are cheaper than those described above, but they are still on the list of the most expensive motorcycles. Among these is Macchia Nera Concept Bike worth 200 thousand US dollars. The weight of the bike leaves 135 kg. It is equipped with a 185 horsepower engine.
