Christmas is coming and for many bikers it’s time to write to Santa and ask for the motorcycle they really want.
Sadly many bikers have the reputation of being bad boys and Santa’s sleigh passes overhead without dropping that Macchia Nera down the chimney.
Desirable motorbikes combine the best of both worlds: a high price tag that may have the ring of pure bling and a machine which combines the sort of power, design and performance that all motorbike enthusiasts dream of.
Give Santa one more try with some ideas on the best, blinging motorbikes on earth promise him a ride on your new toy next Xmas Eve and keep your gauntlets crossed.
Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike
The Dodge Tomahawk is the space cowboy of motorbikes, with an 8.3L engine and four wheels compacted into two wheel units. The retro, aerodynamic body is pod-like and the engineering is visible for all to see. The Dodge does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and can reach speeds of 400mph. Not surprisingly, the Dodge is illegal on roads worldwide, and is considered a collectors’ item and design statement. It will set you back around £400k that’s £1k for every mph, but you have been very good this year, haven’t you
Ecosse Titanium Series RR Limited Edition
Only 10 Ecosse Titanium Series RR Limited Edition motorcycles were manufactured and this beauty has a distinct retro appeal that any Futurist would applaud. The Ecosse RR has a 200HP engine and a 2150cc fuel-injected engine and a clock made exclusively for the Ecosse RR by French watchmakers BRM. As the name suggests, the chassis is Titanium and the wheels and bodywork carbon fibre. The price tag for an Ecosse RR Limited Edition is around £200k if you can find one, that is.
Macchia Nera Concept Motorbike
The Macchia Nera takes to the limit the maxim what you see is what you get, with around £130k’s worth of visible engineering in a crisp, candy coated machine that boasts a lightweight, Titanium chassis and a top dog, super-powerful Ducati engine. The Macchia Nera is a rare beast and might just make Santa think about trading in his trusty sleigh and reindeer.
The Icon Sheene is dedicated to British motor racing champ, Barry Sheene who died at the age of 52 and just 52 Icon Sheene tribute motorbikes were manufactured. Goldfish lovers will appreciate the aerodynamic, nose-to-tail fantail design while speed freaks will be bowled over by 250HP and the 1400cc turbo charged engine. Each bike came with a handpainted playing card by artist Mike Fairholme and the motorbike was co-designed by Joss Nicholson and personally fitted by Steve Parrish and Andrew Morris from Icon Motorbikes and all for around £107k.
