Expensive things have always been a great desire for humans as owning expensive things is widely seen as a yardstick for measuring success. Motorcycles, though aren't necessarily seen in the bracket of expensive items and it's mostly cars that take the top spots there. However, some motorcycles stand out as exceptions as they cost a lot more than one would normally imagine. Here, we've rounded up some of the most expensive motorcycles in India, and to start with, all of them cost more than the popular German luxury car models.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R, which is the track-focussed version of the Ninja H2 finds its place among the most expensive bikes that you can purchase in India. Powering this motorcycle is a 998cc, four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed transmission. The unique supercharged motor develops a whopping 306 hp of power along with 165 Nm of torque. The Kawasaki Ninja H2R will set you back by Rs 69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), same as a Ford Mustang but a whole lot faster, although both are an apple and grape comparison.
The MV Agusta F4 RC is the flagship motorcycle by the Italian manufacturer for India. Powering the F4 RC is a 998cc, four-cylinder engine, churning out 212 hp of power and 115 Nm of torque. The bike is available at the dealerships at a price of Rs 50 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and for this money, it's not just great performance that you buy, you get an exquisite design that stands out as art among present-age industrial designs.

The Big Dog K9 chopper made its way to India a few months back and is one of the swankiest chopper bikes that you can buy here.

The Big Dog K9 chopper costs Rs 59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Ducati 1299 Superleggera is the most expensive motorcycle that one can buy in India. However, the country received only one unit of the bike that was sold to Vikram Oberoi. The extensive use of carbon fibre makes the Superleggera such a premium offering. The price of the Ducati 1299 Superleggera in India is Rs 1.12 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). Yes, Rs 1.12 crore! No typos here and it costs more than a Porsche Cayenne..
