The Serpent By Ransom Motorcycles

Ransom Motorcycles calls their bikes "masterpieces -- made to order," a design philosophy that seems readily apparent when you wrap your eyes around The Serpent. It's got a handmade aluminum body with stainless steel radiator lines, a stainless steel exhaust and a 185-hp 1000cc GSXR inline, four-cylinder engine providing a little extra venom. According to their website, Ransom produces five exclusive concepts annually starting around $225,000. That's the cost of taming a monster.
