    I think you can make a good case for any of them. So many people just look at the base statistics and throw them under the bus based on that but they are special for more reasons than just numbers and to be sure there is a price to be put on exclusivity.

    If you have to ask….No.

    The way I look at it: Can I get 80% of the performance for 20% of the money with some other bike? If the answer is yes, then the bike isn’t worth the money. Example: any of the $40K+ gas powered bikes are not worth it since you can get an $8k bike that gets at least 80% of the performance/utility.

      I spy with my little eye an air cooled Ducati motor in that tricked out chassis. I tender my approval.

        yeap.. and the Ducati air cooled motor is probably why they don’t sell it in the US anymore. It used to cost only $36,000. sigh..

          I have always wondered how a double swing arm bike would handle. I imagine there can’t be that much in the way of front end feel. I also wonder how they maintain a consistent castor angle for the front wheel. Must… Disassemble…

    I think it really depends on the price. Once you get over $100K it’s going to be a bike you probably won’t ride unless $100K means nothing to you. I don’t really see the point in it, especially if the bike isn’t really, really special. Some really special bikes exist in the retail world now: R1M, S1000RR, RSV4 RF, 1299S, 1199R, as primary examples.
