The Tomahawk garnered significant press and industry attention for its attractive design, its outward shape-displacement, 10-cylinder car engine, and its four closely-coupled wheels, which give it a motorcycle-like appearance.
In addition, the central visual element of the retro-art deco design is the 500-horsepower (370 kW), 8.3-liter (510 cu in) V10 SRT10 engine from the Dodge Viper sports car. The Dodge Tomahawk is the fastest bike in the world since 2003, and one of the most expensive bikes in the world 2022.

During an auction organized by Bonhams in Las Vegas, a Black Lightning, said to be one of only 19 survivors, set an absolute world record for the highest price paid at auction for a $929,000 motorcycle. The machine was used to set a national speed record in Australia during 1953, and was purchased by an unknown Australian. Vincent Black Lightning is one of the most expensive bikes in the world.

06. Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship: $1.5 Million
The Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship has consistently ranked first in the list of the top 10 most expensive bikes, but is only ranked sixth in 2022. The bike was hand-painted by world-renowned artist, Jack Armstrong, which is why Hogg costs so much, as some of Jack’s paintings sell for over $3 million. The Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship is the definition of art and machine. It was created with the intention of creating a work of art and was painted by Jack Armstrong, a rebellious cosmic existentialist artist.
- Engine: V twin engine
- Price: $1.5 million
05. BMS Nehmesis – $3 Million
Seeing the pictures, you will know why it is so expensive. The BMS Nehmesis is made of 24 karat gold, has no side stand, and the motorbike just sits on its stomach. This is due to the inclusion of an air-ride system that enables the bike to lift itself automatically with a single sided swingarm. You can lift it 10 inches above the ground.
More importantly, it has the yellow luster of 24-karat gold and that easily explains its $3 million worth. BMS Nehmesis is one of the top 10 most expensive bikes in the world in 2022. The BMS is due to the Nehme sis motorbike’s air-ride technology, which allows the vehicle to elevate itself with the help of its single-sided swingarm and rear suspension. As a result the side stand becomes unnecessary. I think we can all agree it’s pure luxury.
- Engine: Yamaha Road Star 1700

- Color: Orange & Gold

In 1984, when meat and bone horses were becoming obsolete, Heinrich, Wilhelm and Alois Wolfmüller collaborated to build this motorbike.
