Harleys, the BMWs and more – straight out of a petrolhead’s fantasies!
The ultimate track machine from the Bolognese house of motorcycles, the Ducati 1299 Superleggera made its way out of the petrolheads’ bedroom posters recently. You can now by one in India; but only if you have a sum of Rs 1.12 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai) to spare.
This staggering price tag has made the Superleggera the most expensive bike available in the country at the moment. Though not very close to the eight digit-mark, here are some other posh pairs of wheels* to give it company in the pecuniary columns.

At number five is the most expensive sports tourer in India. The German motorcycle houses an in-line 6-cylinder motor beneath its fairing and works on a maximum power rating of 160PS and peak torque of 175Nm. On top of that, it gets adequate modern tech, from ABS to a fully adjustable suspension as standard.
The biggest offering from Indian Motorcycles in the country is a giant that tips the scale at over 400kg. At the heart of things is a 1,811cc mill that packs 139Nm of peak torque while there is no shortage of luxury either. It features a 200-watt stereo system with Bluetooth and smartphone compatibility just to give you an idea of things.
One of the most sought-after Italian superbikes in the world, the F4 RC is a droolworthy replica of their Reparto Corse team’s FIM Superbike World Championship motorcycle. It comes powered by a 4-cylinder Corsa Corta engine that puts out more than 210PS of power and propels it to top speeds of over 300kmph.
Ducati’s previous flagship offering in India before the Superleggera is tailor-made for race tracks with its Superquadro 1198cc, L-Twin engine that puts out 205PS of power. Different riding modes, power modes, cornering ABS, DTC (Ducati traction control) and EBC (engine braking control) further add to the track shenanigans.
Another super premium tourer from America on the list, the CVO Limited peaks the summit by flawlessly combining performance with looks and style. The bike gets a Twin-Cooled Twin Cam 110 engine – a 1,801cc V-twin that delivers 156Nm of peak torque at just 3,750 rpm. An infotainment system with a full-colour touchscreen, dual control heated seat with passenger and rider backrest and keyless ignition comprise an impressive feature list.
