Motorcycles are usually simple and less clunky when compared to a car. But what if you want opulence on two wheels? Fret not, for there are multiple options available in the market that will spoil you silly. For the right amount of money, you can get a motorcycle with almost all the bells and whistles that are normally found on cars, or you can get performance motorcycles with space-age electromechanical complexity. This thread is dedicated to the most expensive motorcycles available in India. Read on, to know more about these ostentatious two wheeled beauties. Ducati Panigale R: When it comes to track oriented machines, the Panigale R is indeed the one of the most exotic bikes out there. The superbike starts at a cool INR 49 lacs and additionally you can even select one of the two personalization packs available, namely- the Sport Pack and the Touring Pack. The sport pack comes with even more carbon fibre bits and bobs while the touring pack includes radiator protection kit, anti theft system, soft tankbag and ergonomic seat. Although, I don’t see the use of a touring pack on such a hardcore performance motorcycle.

Even the bodywork is aerodynamically designed by the same aerospace division to manipulate physics and ensure maximum stability and performance at high speeds. Personally, this is my favorite motorcycle ever!
