Emerging from the sea like a modern day Aphrodite (but built by Italians), I give you the Vyrus 987 C3 V4. Billed by the manufacturer as the “world’s most powerful production motorcycle”, the bike features a supercharged 1198cc Ducati motor good for a claimed 211 horsepower. Clearly, Vyrus blew the marketing budget on making this beast go faster, and I say that’s a good thing.

You know that all this carbon fiber and hand-built-by Italian-craftsmen goodness won’t come cheap, but I still recommend you sit down before I throw out a price. Based on current exchange rates, the out the door price (in the EU, at least) works out to be just north of $90,000.00. There’s no word on U.S. availability, but if you’ve got pockets deep enough to drop ninety large on a bike, the absence of a U.S. distributor won’t stop you.
