SUPERCAR-BEATING performance at the price of a family hatchback – that’s what gives the safety lobby the jitters about high-performance motorcycles, isn’t it?
Perhaps we should show them this lot, to reassure them that there are still plenty of motorcycles that are way out of most people’s reach, if not too expensive to ever risk actually riding.
In putting together this list of the most expensive motorcycles, we’ve stuck to machines that, so far as we can tell, are actually available to order, today. That means Honda’s €200,000 RC213V-S, for example, is out.
You may spot a one or two other uber-expensive boutique motorcycles that are absent. We’ve reasoned that if there’s no advertised price, and enquiries aren’t responded to in 24 hours, then we can’t be sure the bike is available to buy at all.
