Running Rich: The US$270,000 Ecosse Heretic Titanium

Doesn't look like something that's that expensive, eh...?

Here are the numbers – the Heretic Titanium weighs 192 kilos, is powered by a supercharged, fuel-injected, 2147cc v-twin that makes 207 horsepower, and the bike costs about US$270,000 – making this Ecosse the most expensive motorcycle in the world right now.

The Heretic’s engine is made from a solid block of aluminum, the chassis and swingarm are made of titanium, bodywork is carbonfibre, suspension components are Ohlins units, brakes are GP-quality six-piston units (made by Sweden-based ISR) and each bike is fitted with an expensive BRM chronograph. More pics and details on the Ecosse website here, and video on the Robb Report site here.
