Bike enthusiasts always look out for bikes that are priced high and built according to the latest technology. They are the ones who love the roar of the powerful bike engines which seems nothing less than a cool song. One general perception that most of us have is that cars are sold for millions of dollars but when we come across bikes, not many people know that limited edition bikes range far more than a luxury car. So, we have compiled a list comprising the most expensive bikes in the world of all times which have been manufactured in limited quantity, are robust and unique.
