Without further ado, here are the top 20 of the Priciest Motorbikes for the year 2023.

20. Kawasaki Ninja H2R

20. Kawasaki Ninja H2R

Estimated Price: $50,000

Starting from the bottom of the list, the Kawasaki's Ninja H2 is a 'supercharged supersport' motorbike in the company's Ninja sports bike line, and it uses a centrifugal supercharger with variable speeds. The 750 cc Kawasaki H2 Mach IV, an inline triple developed by Kawasaki in 1972 to 'disrupt what it perceived as a sleeping motorcycle industry,' served as the inspiration for this model.

There is no faster or more powerful production motorbike than the track-only Ninja H2R, which can generate up to 310 horsepower and 326 horsepower (243 kW) with ram-air. When compared to the most powerful street-legal bikes, the H2R is a clear winner. whereas the 200 horsepower of the street-legal Ninja H2 is less (150 kW).

19. Energica Ego 45 Limited Edition

19. Energica Ego 45 Limited Edition

Estimated Price: $70,000

Carbon fibre fairings and a unique design created with 3D printing technology and Windform® materials are featured on the limited edition electric superbike, which has been given a ceramic finish by English firm Zircotec.

The Ego 45 combines the highest levels of luxury and technology, including a limited production run, high-end parts, class-leading performance, and manufacturing and design cues from aerospace or top-tier international racing such as Formula 1. The superbike masterpiece you've been waiting for is here; it's the Ego45 - Unconventional Luxury. You may get your hands on a limited edition of the stunning Ego45 by placing a special order (a maximum of 45 was built).

18. Vyrus 987 C3 4V

18. Vyrus 987 C3 4V

Estimated Price: $105,000

Achieving a title such as 'Most Powerful Production Motorcycle in the World' is no small feat, even if it doesn't stay forever. The current champion is the $105,000 Vyrus 987 C3 4V.

The C3 4V is the lightest production motorcycle in the world at only 339 pounds, yet it boasts the most power from its supercharged 1198cc V-twin engine thanks to the help of Ducati. You get one unique two-wheeled rocket when you combine an aggressive body with lighting and consoles reminiscent of jet fighters and world-famous Brembo brakes.

17. MV Agusta F4CC

17. MV Agusta F4CC

Estimated Price: $120,000

MV Agusta's CEO Claudio Castiglioni's name inspired the F4 CC, which made its debut at the 2006 Milan EICMA. The new 1,078 cc engine in the F4 CC generates 190 horsepower (147 kW) at 12,200 rpm. To provide the additional displacement, the engine's bore is 3 mm bigger than that of the 998 cc engines. Del West, an American expert, made the larger inlet valves and the whole valve train.

The frame is an F4, but it's made of magnesium for the plates and the swing arm instead of the more common steel. The Sachs racing shock absorber is located in the back, while the front forks are Marzocchi 50 mm carbon nitride units. Both the wheels and the brakes are from the Brembo racing division, with the wheels featuring 'Y' spokes and the brakes being Brembo Super Light models.

In the construction of the body, carbon fibre was heavily used. Since no suitable road tire could reach speeds greater than 195 mph (314 km/h), the maximum speed was capped at that value. There was a strict limit of 100 available computers.

16. NCR MH TT (Mike Hailwood)

16. NCR MH TT (Mike Hailwood)

Estimated Price: $130,000

Because of NCR's intention to construct a tribute bike in Mike’s honour, it stands to reason that both the man and the motorcycle would be exceptional. NCR has created a special event, the MH TT, to celebrate Mike Hailwood's historic triumph on the Isle of Man 30 years ago.

The MH TT is an updated take on the Ducati 900 NCR that Hailwood rode to victory. The superlight bike weighs in at only 136 kilograms, and its donor bike is the Ducati Sport 1000 which has been heavily modified to decrease as much as possible. Titanium and carbon fibre, like those used in other NCR products, have been used to help with the slimming process. In its 5kg, titanium frame sits a 1,120cc engine producing 132PS. While carbon fibre was used for the motorcycle's body panels and wheels, titanium was used for the exhaust and frame.

15. NCR Leggera 1200 Titanium Special

15. NCR Leggera 1200 Titanium Special

Estimated Price: $148,000

Yet another stunning titanium body, this one adorned with dazzling hardware. The titanium frame weighs only 5 kilos, and it comes equipped with carbon fiber BST wheels, hlins suspension, and Brembo brakes. Because of this, the bike is as nimble as any other model made by NCR.

14. Icon Sheene

14. Icon Sheene

Estimated Price: $172,000

The crotch rocket, which retails for $160,000, is the pinnacle of the boutique motorcycle genre, with a distinctive, semi-retro design and enough power to satisfy even the pickiest of speed fanatics. Icon is producing this album as a homage to British motorbike racing star Barry Sheene.

The Icon Sheene has a Suzuki 1400cc turbocharged Hayabusa engine with Carrillo rods and Wiseco pistons, which generates 250 horsepower and 133 pound-feet of torque. It has a carbon-fibre body and wheels, and it's loaded with handcrafted parts like a stainless steel exhaust, an aluminium fuel tank, and aluminium oil coolers.

Among the many notable features are Alcantara racing seats, ISR callipers and floating discs, a 6-speed quick-shift gearbox, Bitubo front forks, and a hydra-formed exhaust 'designed for the ultimate sonic symphony,' as claimed by Icon.

13. MTT Turbine Streetfighter

13. MTT Turbine Streetfighter

Estimated Price: $175,000

Marine Turbine Technologies has been producing the MTT Y2K Turbine Motorbike (also known as the Y2K Turbine Superbike) since the year 2000. This American motorcycle is propelled by a turboshaft engine. At the 2006 SEMA exhibition in Las Vegas, MTT debuted the 'Street Fighter.' The Allison 250-C20B engine's 420 horsepower (310 kW) turbine was first widely used in the Street Fighter. The MTT's Rolls Royce-Allison turbine provides 320 horsepower to the accelerator, resulting in the vehicle's legendary acceleration.

12. Honda RC213 V-S

12. Honda RC213 V-S

Estimated Price: $185,000

Japanese manufacturer Honda Racing Corporation designed the RC213V road racing motorbike for the 2012 MotoGP season and beyond. Motorcycles may have a maximum engine size of 1,000cc in 2012, with a maximum of 4 cylinders and a cylinder bore size of 81mm.

In 2015, a hand-built, street-legal variant of the RC213V-S was unveiled as a MotoGP replica. Honda offered a Sports Kit upgrade kit for sale, letting customers raise the bar for off-road performance.

11. Suzuki AEM Carbon Fiber Hayabusa

11. Suzuki AEM Carbon Fiber Hayabusa

Estimated Price: $200,000

The Hayabusa is the fastest production motorbike in the world, and it can easily achieve speeds of over 188 miles per hour. Comfort, handling, dependability, noise, fuel economy, and even pricing are not compromised in the 1999 and 2008 releases. This motorbike was generally recognized as the fastest production motorcycle in the world, with top speeds of almost 188 miles per hour.

10. Ducati Testa Stretta NCR Macchia Nera

10. Ducati Testa Stretta NCR Macchia Nera

Estimated Price: $225,000

Technical performance, designs, frames, and aesthetics all go towards the final cost of a motorcycle. One alternative is to produce a limited quantity of them. The Ducati Macchia Nera isn't as fast as some of the other big bikes on this list (despite the fact that its name, Macchia Nera or Block Spot, humorously suggests you could leave a charred pavement behind while riding it), but its impressively low weight of 297 pounds thanks to its titanium and carbon fibre construction, its artistic contribution by visionary designer Aldo Drudi, and the fact that there were only a select few produced have convinced most enthusiasts the price is justified.

9. Ducati Desmosedici D16RR NCR M16

9. Ducati Desmosedici D16RR NCR M16

Estimated Price: $235,000

To achieve these results, NCR begins with a Desmosedici D16RR that retails for $72,500 and modifies it to make it more lightweight and powerful. The end product is the NCR Millona 16 road missile, which costs $250,000. While the standard 989cc V-four Ducati engine only delivers around 175 hp to the rear tire, NCR has adjusted the M16 to provide over 200 hp.

The M16 features race-ready electronics like traction control, data logging, and user-selectable maps, plus a MotoGP-spec suspension to help put that power to the ground. As reported, the stated dry weight of the M16 is 319 lbs (145 kg), making it far less than the 330 lb minimum of a four-cylinder MotoGP bike required by law.

8. Ecosse Founder’s Edition Ti XX

8. Ecosse Founder’s Edition Ti XX

Estimated Price: $300,000

The Ecosse Moto Works Founder's Edition Titanium may be most impressive for the labour-intensive details that set it apart from every other motorcycle, despite the spec sheet listing numbers that are as extraordinary as the bike's $200,000 price: 175 hp and 160 ft-lbs of torque propelling a machine that weighs only 455 pounds. The fenders, fuel tank, rear end, and wheels are all made of carbon fibre and have a glossy clear lacquer for a professional look. Then there are the titanium frame components that need almost 2,000 hours of work to produce.

7. Legendary British Vintage Black

7. Legendary British Vintage Black

Estimated Price: $400,000

At the time it was released, it set a new standard for production motorcycle speed. The Legendary Vintage Black motorbike, first introduced in 1948, is a legendary design. Just 33 were ever constructed, yet their 250cc performance is among the best available.

6. Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike

6. Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike

Estimated Price: $550,000

This wacky motorcycle from the future is very unusual. At over $500,000, the Dodge Tomahawk V10 is one of the most expensive motorbikes in the world. The motorcycle tips the scales at nearly 680 kg, accelerates to 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds, and can theoretically reach speeds of 400 miles per hour. Since it's still only a concept, the bike can't legally be ridden on the road. But who knows? Maybe one day we'll all be zipping about on one of these futuristic motorcycles.

5. Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship

5. Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship

Estimated Price: $1,500,000

In previous years, the Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship had taken the top spot in lists of the most expensive motorcycles, but by 2022, it had fallen to fifth place. The Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship is the perfect combination of human ingenuity and mechanical wonder. Jack Armstrong, a countercultural cosmic existentialist painter, constructed it with the goal of creating a masterpiece.

4. The Yamaha BMS Chopper

4. The Yamaha BMS Chopper

Estimated Price: $3,000,000

Yamaha's BMS Chopper is a gold motorcycle with a 1700cc engine. The motorcycle's lack of front-down tubes is made up for by the bike's V-twin engine. The bike also has a 360mm rear tire and a set of LED brake lights and taillights integrated into the outside borders of the rear fender.

3. Ecosse ES1 Spirit

3. Ecosse ES1 Spirit

Estimated Price: $3,600,000

At $3.6 million, the Ecosse Spirit is the third most expensive motorbike in the world and is made from a limited supply of titanium. The strong engine of the special edition Ecosse Spirit allows the rider to achieve speeds of up to 370 kilometres per hour. Contrary to popular belief, the Ecosse ES1 Spirit is in fact a motorcycle. This motorcycle may be described in two ways. To begin, a chassis structure is not there at all. Second, there is a suspension system at the back. The front suspension is linked to the motor, and the gearbox is hooked to the swingarm.

2. 1949 E90 AJS Porcupine

2. 1949 E90 AJS Porcupine

Estimated Price: $7,000,000

Due to initial financial problems, the storied motorcycle maker AJS only managed to produce four Porcupine bikes that year. One of these athletes went on to win the 1949 World Championship thanks to the exceptional coaching of Les Graham. The Porcupine is a motorbike featuring a distinctive 'Jam-pot' kind of shock, a 500 cc aluminium alloy engine, and an open frame. The bike was stored away for twenty years at the Coventry National Motorcycle Museum until it was made accessible to a select few fans.

1. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter

1. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter

Estimated Price: $11,000,000

The Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter is one of the most exclusive bikes available today. Since its publication, just 45 copies have been sold at retail.

The Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter, in spite of its intimidating appearance and steep price tag, is fully road-legal and can reach speeds of up to 190 miles per hour. The 120ci 45-degree air-cooled V-Twin engine provides this propulsion, and it is mated to lightweight and strong titanium, aluminium, and carbon fibre body panels. Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter, with a price of $11 million, is the most expensive motorcycle in the world as of 2022.
