If you’re meant to be a biker, there’s nothing that can stop you. Riders have the need to be on the open road cruising through their blood stream and when they’re out there, it’s glorious. Though every motorcycle can give that rush, some can do it with a little more horsepower and a lot more style. Here’s our list of the top ten of the most expensive motorcycles in the world, for the truly passionate.
1. MV Agusta F4CC – €102,000This beauty looks as if it’s ridden straight out of Gotham City, with speeds to match. Clocking in at 200 horsepower, only 100 unites of the MV Augusta F4CC were produced; and each one of these exclusive bikes are almost entirely hand-built, including engine valves from Ferrari. Its owners may not be fighting crime, but it’s hard not to feel a bit like Batman on one of these.
2. Hildebrand & Wolfmüller – €130,000History takes the spotlight here with the first production motorcycle ever built, when two brothers who were steam-engine engineers (Hildebrand) met the inventor Alois Wolfmüller in Munich in 1894. Produced between 1894 and 1897, this bike’s highest speed is 45 kmph, which would have been pretty fast for a 19th century motorised bicycle. The remaining versions of this bike now rest in museums around the world, and you could say they’ve transcended from functional objects to art.
