To fulfill such ambitions, they keep on twisting their present technology as per their needs and requirements. As the demand for these bikes increases, their supply increases. This actually happens because of the Economics that is continuously working in the world around us.

I have an uncle of mine, who has the hobby of collecting some of the most expensive Bikes in India. Obviously, he has bundles of spare money to fulfill his all his interests. But, he does not buy just anything. He does a good deal of research and then goes for what is trending in the market. The companies who manufacture bikes for people like him are BMW and Ducati Motor Holding S.P.A.

Both possess some of the best electrical and chassis, that make them cost-worthy, along with the brand name that they come with.

My uncle was confused between these two bikes, though he could buy both, but still, he wanted the better of the two. So, I helped him by preparing this table, which would make it easier for him to make the choice between the two. I hope it helps other people also, who are planning to buy an expensive and fashionable bike.
