Motorcycles are one of those mean machines that people can get obsessed with. Maybe it’s the speed, the grittiness, or the overall intensity that this 2-wheeled ride exudes. Whatever the reason is, motorcycles are highly regarded in the automotive industry.
In fact, like luxury cars, this vehicle has its own dignified list, showcasing the most expensive rides, proving its worth and influence to millions of people worldwide. Take the Ecosse ES1 Superbike priced at $3.6 million, which was built with speed in mind. According to an article from The Richest:
When F1 engineers from the United Kingdom were commissioned to help create a superbike, speed was naturally the first order of the day. With its composite construction and electronic control system, this bike [Ecosse ES1 Superbike] is fast, light and handles easily. American designers were on hand to give the bike an ergonomic fitment. During testing, the bike, which is powered by a modified IL4 engine, went at a top speed of 250 miles per hour and the engine was good enough for 200 bhp.
No wonder motorcycle enthusiasts can’t stop themselves from rhapsodizing about this innovation, notwithstanding its hefty price. Even the American icon Harley Davidson continues to be revered. The Cosmic Starship, worth $1 million, is a biker’s dream:
The artist Jack Armstrong owns this bike. Harley Davidson has long been a favorite of American bikers, and many have taken the liberty of customizing their ride. […] Extreme colors and textures were meshed into the bike, which Armstong calls the Cosmic Starship. Indeed, this is not just a motorcycle; it is pure artwork.
There’s no doubting the prestige a classic or luxury motorcycle can bring. Such a machine can represent someone’s passion or even someone’s life, so delivering or transporting it should be handled with the highest level of service and care from a trusted motorcycle shipping company.
A tiny dent, a slight scratch, or a small damage might occur when shipping a motorcycle across the country, and there’s nothing more disheartening for an avid biker than these costly faults. So if you want to make sure that your bike crosses state lines safely and arrives at its destination in one piece, only work with trusted shipping companies like Orbit Logistics that offer a variety of shipping services, from overnight shipping to ground shipping, to suit your needs.
