If you are reading this, you must be a bike lover. So, you must be wondering what the most expensive motorbikes in the world look like? How much those motorcycles might cost you? For you my friend, I have made this list.
We all have ridden bikes in our life. The ratio of a bike owner per person is increasing day by day. Some use it for daily needs and many use it for passion. Normally, the price of a motorbike of 100-150cc is in range of common people. However, many people have a predilection to a good quality bike for show-up, or from passion.
Have you ever wondered why the most amazing bikes are so expensive!!! Or what are the features of the most expensive motorcycles in the world? You don’t have to look everywhere as I bring you 15 costliest motorcycles in the world.
In this list, I have included features such as engine built, body, breaks etc.
Suzuki AEM Carbon Fiber Hayabusa
Value: 200000 USD
Although this bike is no. 15th on this list, this is my second most favourite bike. This bike was said to be the fastest on-road motorcycles in the world which was launched by Suzuki in 1999.
It can easily reach a speed of 188 kilometres per hour with its 1300 cc engine. This bike has a very cool looking sporty body which is made of carbon fiber mainly that gives it a low weight.
Although the bike is specialized in speed, the producer did not compromise with the other parts for example, handling, comfort, fuel economy, suspension, engine noise, wheel, braking system, etc.
This satisfied the experts in the bike world by gaining the ‘fastest production motorcycle’ which is the phrase to push more of Hayabusa’s performance for the satisfaction of the rebels.
You can find this bike in three colors- black, white and grey- according to your choice, but if you ask me, I would go for the black. This is a perfect bike for any bike lover.

You may find this two-wheeler dusty but trust me, this is fancy in its own way and is one of the most expensive bikes in the world.

Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship
Value: 1.5 million USD
As the name says, this bike is on the cosmic level compared to the previous bikes. The Harley Davidson gave their best effort to make this motorbike which will surely give you a total Americana feeling. This is really exclusive because you will find only 37 of those roaming around the world.

But my friend, you don’t want to scratch this bike while riding on the road as the painting is valuable. Although the value is reported at 1.5 million, rumor is that it might be worth 3-3.5 million. If that is true, then this bike will rise to no 3 or 4 position on this list. Really, this bike is a magnet to any one.
The Yamaha BMS Chopper
Value: 3 million USD
Well friend, we have another unusual bike customized by Yamaha but this time, this bike is the 4th highest priced bike in the world.

This bike represents royalty itself. It has an air-ride system having a swing arm rear suspension and upright fork suspension on the front that gives it excellent durability.
You don’t want to let it run on the road regularly for its gorgeousness rather, your showroom will definitely become the center of attraction.
Ecosse ES1 Spirit
Value: 3.6 million USD
I must say, this bike is futuristic. This baby is predicted to bring revolution in racing bikes. This bike is designed by the eminent Formula One engineers from America and Britain. Engineers Richard Tyrrell, Richard Glover and Andy le Fleming mainly targeted the weight and frontal area which are very significant in speed.
The 1000cc engine can create more than 200 horsepower and weighs 265 pounds. But the designers are trying to bring the weight down to less than 100 pounds by deleting some parts.

The sitting position is designed in a way that the biker will not be uncomfortable while riding for a long time and the handlebar is also built as an upward-projected steer axis so that a better control can be achieved.
This two-wheeler has never disappointed the experts yet, with its aerodynamic design, it can avoid wind friction to the maximum. Trust me, you really want this bike in a bad way if you are a speed freak.
