NCR Macchia Nera

3, NCR Macchia Nera
Price : $ 2,25,000 (Rs 1.23 crore)

The Macchia Nera or Italian for 'black spot' is designer Aldo Drudi’s ultimate expression of a motorcycle moulded with carbon fibre and titanium. Like most NCR machines, the donor engine for the Macchia Nera is also a Ducati but this mill is a special one as it is a Ducati 998R testastretta engine from the 2003 World Superbike season with a power rating of 182PS. Like all NCR creations, keeping the weight as low as possible was the main criteria and it was achieved by its expert craftsman who built the gorgeous frame from titanium and a carbon fibre tank with a special one of a kind titanium fuel cap. By employing such lightweight materials, the Macchia Nera's weight was restricted to just 135kg. NCR wanted the bike to go as fast as it looks and to achieve that it employed an Evoluzione Slipper Cluch, Öhlins suspension in front and rear, ultra-exclusive MotoGP Brembo brake system with 320mm double disks (centrally vented) and magnesium wheels. All this craftsmanship and performance comes at a steep price, though, which is $ 2,25,000 or Rs 1.23 crore!
