Motorrad displays the ten most expensive motorcycles in the world.
It is, of course, absolutely correct: somewhere there will be expensive motorcycles in the smallest small chain. This article describes the 10 best motorcycles from large manufacturers, where there is an opportunity to see the best motorcycles on the road. And of course: the majority of expensive motorcycles are super-noble sports bikes. A word about the price range: you can buy a BMW for the cheapest motorcycle, and instead of the most expensive motorcycle, you can put an electrified Porsche in the garage.
10th place: Yamaha R1M
R1M, Yamaha’s top athlete, finished 10th. The base is the R1, the M comes with semi-active suspension from Öhlins. 200 hp meets 202 kg ready to drive. Price: €27,044 for the base bike for the World Superbike Championship
9th place: Kawasaki ZX-10 RR
Kawasaki ZX-10 RR ranks 9th among the most expensive motorcycles, with a price of 28,995 euros. Like Yamaha, it forms the basis for the WSBK World Motorcycle Championships. 204 hp should move 207 kilograms, with the Ram-Air being 214 hp.
8th place: BMW M 1000 RR
Another super athlete. Another basic bike for WSBK: the BMW M 1000 RR. The noble performance model of the S 1000 RR costs 33,000 euros, has an output of 212 hp and weighs only 192 kg.
Seventh place: Indian pursuit
The first ride out of three supertourists in the top ten is an Indian with the new Challenger Pursuit, priced at €34,190. From 1,768 cc, the V2 generates 121 hp and 178 Nm and should move at least 400 kg.
Sixth place: Honda Goldwing DCT Tour
The Indian Tourer was closely followed by Tour icon Honda Gold Wing in sixth place for 36,999 euros. In the top-of-the-range version, it comes not only with a six-cylinder boxer, but also with a dual-clutch transmission and a unique airbag system.
Fifth place: MV Agusta Rush
The MV Agusta Rush ranks fifth among the most expensive motorcycles at a price of 37,790 euros. Your four-cylinder produces 208 hp and only needs to move 200 kg.
Fourth place: Ducati Panigale V4 SP2
Priced at 39,940 euros, the new SP2 based on the Panigale V4 is fourth, trimmed for a lightweight build with plenty of carbon: 192.5 kilograms meets 215.5 hp.
3rd place: Kawasaki H2R
Third place goes to a motorcycle that will never drive on public roads because it is unregistered. For 55,000 euros, the Kawa H2R compressor delivers a maximum power of 326 hp which should move only 216 kilos.
Second place: Harley-Davidson CVO Tri Glide
Harley’s luxury tricycle takes second place: the CVO Tri Glide costs 59,995 euros. Displacing just under two liters, it attracts 163 Nm at 3500 rpm. However, 577 kg must be transported.
First place: Bimota Tesi H2
Granted, the chance of seeing the Tesi H2 on the road is slim, but it’s there. At a price of 64,000 euros, the first place was taken by the Bimota with a unique chassis and compressor engine from Kawasaki, and there is still more to come.
Even more expensive: the Ducati Superleggera
Not included in the rating because it is neither street legal nor available to mere mortals: the ultra-exclusive carbon racer Ducati Superleggera for €100,000. Up to 234 hp should move dry 152 kg. The Superleggera is lighter than the WSBK racers with the same engine.
The Ten Most Expensive Motorcycles is a dream garage full of those in the international motorcycle industry. Here are premium quality sport bikes alongside premium rides and premium quality variants from truly stylish cases. There should be between 27,000 and 100,000 euros per wallet – anyway – fat.
