10. Ducati Testa Stretta NCR Macchia Nera – $225,000

9. Ducati Desmosedici D16RR NCR M16 – $235,000

In case you’re wondering, it is road legal and weighs 319 pounds.
It’s price really comes about from all the upgrades you can add to the standard production model, which itself costs $72,000.
The D16RR is powered by a Ducati 989 cc v$ desmodromic engine and produces 200HP.
8. Ecosse Founder’s Edition Ti XX – $300,000

Aesthetically, the Ti XX has Carbon fiber across the body, helping to keep the weight down, and has a beautifully handcrafted leather seat.
7. Legendary British Vintage Black – $400,000
The Legendary British Vintage Black is a classically styled motorbike that was released in 1948.
It had a limited production run of only 33 bikes, which certainly helps to justify the price!
It was produced in the United Kingdom and provides 250cc performance.
During its time, it was considered to be the fastest production bike in the world!
6. Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike – $550,000
One of the rarest bikes in the world is this crazy futuristic looking motorbike. The Dodge Tomahawk V10 is one of the world’s most expensive motorcycles, costing over half a million dollars!
The bike weighs over 680 kilograms, can reach 60mph in 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 400 mph!! ( In theory )
Unfortunately, the bike is not road legal, as it is just a concept for now, but who knows, maybe one day we might all be riding around of these sci-fi looking beasts!
5. Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship – $1.5 million
Kicking off our top five and the first motorbike to cost over $1 million dollars, is the Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship.
The bike was hand-painted by world-renowned artist, Jack Armstrong, which is why the hog costs so much, as some of Jack’s paintings sell for in excess of $3 million!
So, if you have a spare $1.5 million, and looking to own one of the most expensive motorbikes in the world, then this might be worth a look.
4. The Yamaha BMS Chopper – $3 million
Look at this! What a stunning piece of mechanical art!
This beast is not meant for the road by any means, instead, it’s a collector’s item that’ s meant to be admired and appreciated for its aesthetics.
It has a 1,700cc engine, but forget that for now, as the Yamaha BMS is almost entirely coated in 24 karat gold and has a red velvet upholstered seat.
3. Ecosse ES1 Spirit – $3.6 Million
The Ecosse Spirit is a limited edition titanium motorcycle and the third most expensive motorcycle in the world.
Don’t let its appearance fool you, as this bike packs enough power to satisfy even the most experienced rider, reaching speeds of 370 kilometres.
So, if you do decide you want to buy one, then you first must take a two-week class at the Ecosse headquarters, before they’ll let you take it for a spin.
2. 1949 E90 AJS Porcupine – $7 Million
Coming in at number two is the 1949 E90 AJS Porcupine.
Costing a whopping, $7 million, you have to be seriously into your bikes to drop that kind of money.
Also, only 4 Porcupines were ever made, and in 1949, Les Graham won the world championship on one of them, so it’s easy to see where the price comes from.
1. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter – $11 Million
The world’s most expensive motorbike is the Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter, costing an insane, $11 million!
Neiman Marcus is an American chain of luxury department stores, so when it decided to unveil a bike for auction, it received a ton of press and the price went through the roof.
