Men go crazy for classic motorcycles and choppers. Being aware of this, many world-famous companies have released luxury motorbikes that amaze with their design and engineering solutions. They are able to emphasize the individuality and flawless taste of those lucky ones who own them. They are designed to be gorgeous in appearance and exciting when riding. These are motorcycles for millionaires and billionaires.
Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship - 1.5 million dollars
Harley Davidson is the world's most renowned American motorcycle manufacturer. The brand’s motorbikes have long become iconic in the biker circles, and its logo is praised in numerous Harley rings, necklaces, and tattoos. The Cosmic Starship model has been hand-painted by Jack Armstrong, whose paintings, on average, cost between 300,000 and 3 million dollars. This bike also corresponds to the average price of the artist’s paintings, but it’s worth it. 1.5 million dollars is not a price for some exciting technical characteristics, it rather indicates how much uniqueness costs.
Yamaha Roadstar BMS Chopper - 3 million dollars
Yamaha BMS is equipped with a V-shaped engine of 1700 cubic centimeters. It is a powerful bike indeed but not the only one of its kind. Like most motorcycles on this list, it owes its price to design. The seat of the motorcycle is covered in red velvet, and the body’s finishing is 24-carat gold with an abstract pattern. In 2013, it was the only one golden motorcycle. It can be considered as an attribute of the owner’s status and their financial capabilities.
Hildebrand & Wolfmuller - 3.5 million dollars
This is the first motorcycle in the world. It had been released from 1894 to 1897. The motorcycle has a speed of 45 km / h. At that time, it was rather a bicycle with a motor, which helped a rider to climb to the top of a hill. So, the speed is not its main feature. Today you can see Hildebrand & Wolfmuller motorcycles in several museums of Germany, London, Detroit, Maine, and Indonesia.
Ecosse Spirit - 3.6 million dollars
Before getting atop this motorcycle, you will have to take a special driving course at the manufacturer’s headquarters. The Ecosse Spirit is a brainchild of American and British engineers who have been inspired by the design of Formula 1 cars. Only 10 of these motorcycles have been released within the Titanium series, so no wonder that the price was dictated by the number of copies and exclusivity. The maximum speed of the motorcycle is 370 km / h.
1949 E90 AJS Porcupine - $ 7 million
A total of four 1949 E90 AJS Porcupine two-wheelers have been released. The company, together with the racer Leslie Graham, won the World Championship in 1949 thanks to this motorcycle. After a few years, the design of the AJS motorcycle has changed, so these four motorcycles have become exclusive and very expensive.
Neiman Marcus Fighter - 11 million
The initial price of the motorcycle was 110,000 dollars, which is 100 times less than its current value. Such a sky-high price is not due to technical characteristics, it is because only 45 copies have been released. The maximum speed of the motorcycle is 305 km / h. It has a unique design that resembles a clock mechanism.
