At £138,000, the Honda RC213V-S is the world's most expensive road-going motorcycle. The video below is a brief glimpse into why it costs as much as it does.

Hand-built at Honda's Kumamoto factory, Honda capped the number at under 200 after the unit was flooded, ending production early. With such limited numbers, the V-S was always going to shun any mass production techniques, and the attention to detail is typical Honda. Precision hand welding all over and tiny touches that make this machine extra special. The geeks will enjoy this one.

    • The hp4 will propably smash it but id rather have the honda especially for track it will definitely shine in the corners

    • The Honda is only 14kg heavier and has similar power with the track kit, so it’d be down to rider skill.

      Over a two minute lap I’d say the HP4 Race would pull out a second on the Honda at most
