2. Legendary British Vintage Black

This vintage big bike is made in Great Britain and is highly coveted not for its performance but for its history. However, its two-cylinder engine provides this bike with a large roar. That means even if it happens to be an oldie, it isn't your ordinary two-wheeler.

The legendary builders Bartels build this custom 'Million dollar Harley' superbike. The paint finish is from Jack Armstrong, a maverick artist, who used his signature Cosmic-style of painting.

5. Ecosse ES1 Superbike

This bike from Ecosse tops that list. It was intended to completely revolutionize motorbike design and was Dick Glover's brainchild. Glover is McLaren Automotive's technical director. Glover thought that rather than relying on sheer power, he would use F1 technology for improving performance. New materials were applied to strip the weight away and improve electronics and aerodynamics for improved performance and handling. The price tag was the only thing he wasn't able to optimize. So the the future for motorbike design is ahead of its time for now.

6. Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike

Did you know Dodge makes motorcycles? If not don't feel bad, according to Dodge they don't, so they don't even know. The Tomahawk is a kind of concept vehicle and is just automotive sculpture. Its 8.3L V10 engine comes straight out of the Vipers and was dropped right into this superbike's Art Deco body. Initially Dodge claimed the Tomahawk was capable of going 680km/h (420mph). Later they admitted it was more of a theoretical 500 km/h, before they noted that actually the biking really isn't for riding.
