Welcome to the most expensive bikes and bicycles online for 2013 models. Bikes are an amazing freedom that enable us to get closer to nature and ensure a simple fitness regime while providing for great entertainment while on your jack or with family, friends or children in tow.
How much you spend on that entertainment is down to personal need and requirement. What makes a bike expensive? Well in the main new tech costs as it is in low production but you’re also paying, especially on these high end bike models, for the most lightweight bikes made entirely from 100% carbon fibre.
There is also the fluidity of gear change to consider also. Money buys you electronic switches which enable seamless gear change whether uphill on the straight, this isn’t only a competitive touch but unnoticeable gear changes allows for a much more fun and entertaining ride. Consider a rough and hard gear change on a car and the expense in seeing that become seamless.
Squillions has listed a motorbike in at number one – because we’re odd like that. However the rest are the most expensive bikes and bicycles for 2013 that cane be found online to buy. Here’s the Squillions top ten:
Ok, so it’s not a push bike but Squillions couldn’t resist. This monster of a motorbike is an eco friendly electric powered bike that goes from nought to sixty in four seconds. That’s some power for what others might dub a souped up kettle.
Not only that but the Agility Saietta R electric sports bike can hit 120mph. The only downside is the 100 mile range which as maths would have it, you can only ride at full speed for 50 minutes before needing to power up. However with electricity being widely available, this shouldn’t prevent you from having some serious fun with this seriously well designed sports bike.
The Agility Saietta is described as having double wishbone front suspension, advanced suspension geometry, a clutch-less transmission and a composite monocoque chassis. But look at the design! Harley, BMW watch out! More info.
