2, NCR M16:
Price : $232,500 (Rs 1.27 crore)

How to make a bike worth nearly quarter of a million dollars? Simple; by taking a donor bike which is already expensive. Boffins at NCR took the already bonkers MotoGP bike for the road, the Ducati Desmosedici RR and went berserk with it resulting in the creation of the NCR M16. The bike has been put on a diet that would make any size zero model burn with envy as the machine weighs just 144kg (dry weight). To attain this, M16 features a carbon fibre frame, swingarm and wheels alongwith ceramic matrix composite brakes, and specially tuned Öhlins to lay the power down nicely on the tarmac. The engine has also been tuned extensively and delivers over 203PS of power on the rear-wheel. The final cost? $232,500 ($72,500 for donor bike, plus $160,000), which equates to Rs 1.27 crore.
