Worlds Most Expensive Bike

by

Ecosse Heretic Titanium gets the distinction of being the most expensive bike to hit the roads, at a record price of $273,200. If you glance at its features, you will surely understand why! To begin with, the major fraction of the bike, the engine, is made from a solid block of billet aluminum, with attributes such as, a race-spec crankshaft, a supercharger, intercooler and fuel injection. The 2147 cc engine pumps out a massive 207bhp and an equally hefty 218ftlb of torque. There are other parts in the machine, battling to beat the engine, especially its hand built titanium chassis, designed by specially qualified titanium welders, molding the infamously expensive metal into frames. The list of its fantabulous parts seems never ending, the custom-made ISRs brakes, race-spec carbon fibred bodywork formed in an autoclave, and an expensive BRM chronograph watch matching each bike, to name a few. The materials used to manufacture this beauty are lightweight and thus assist in cutting down the weight of the product to 192kg!
