Limited-production bike builders can do wild things within the confines of a two-wheeled blueprint. Some creations are insanely fast, others are works of art, and all of them are pricey. These are the most expensive motorcycles on the planet.
MV Agusta F4 RC, $46,000
There were only 250 production units of this racing bike for the street.
Lightning LS-218, $46,888
With a claim to the world’s fastest production electric motorcycle title, the LS-218 has few equals in a straight line.
Kawasaki H2R, $55,000
Unlike the street-legal H2, the H2R is basically a racing bike for public sale. Other bikes on this list sit in the 200 hp range, but the H2R laughs its way to an absurd 300 hp thanks to a supercharged four-cylinder motor.
Hesketh Valiant SC, $61,033
Hesketh may sound obscure, but it’s a name that’s been around for quite some time — albeit in a different vertical. Hesketh Racing helped launch James Hunt’s Formula One career between the years of 1972 and 1978.
Energica Ego 45, $68,000
Products with “ego” in the name are usually a bad idea. What about an electric sports bike, though?
Arch Motorcycles KRGT-1, $78,000
Beyond just acting, Keanu Reeves spends much of his time riding motorcycles. Recently, his enthusiasm led to a motorcycle venture with bike builder Gard Hollinger. Thus Arch Motorcycles was born.
Suter MMX 500, $118,565
If you want one of the 99 production examples, you’ll need a fat stack of cash, but those who appreciate precision engineering will happily foot the bill.
Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter, $125,000
It sounds like a World War II aircraft, but it’s really just a long name for a ridiculous bike. The G2 is actually the second P51 cycle from Confederate, and like its predecessor, the new P51 could be personified as a barroom brawler.
Honda RC213V-S, $184,000
This hand-built motorcycle is essentially a replica of the RC213V Marc Marquez rode in his last two MotoGP world championships wins. Honda says it’s “closer to a MotoGP bike than any road-going model ever offered to the public“.
Ludovic Lazareth LM847, $217,000
You could either buy two Maserati Gran Turismo sports cars, or you could have one of these.
