1954 AJS E95 Porcupine Racing Motorcycle

With a name like that, you wouldn't expect the 1954 AJS E95 Porcupine Racing Motorcycle ($750,000-$950,000; Auction) to be very comfortable. And maybe you'd be right — but the Porcupine wasn't built for comfort. It was built for speed. Described as the "Holy Grail of British motorcycles," the Porcupine is the only twin-cylinder motorcycle ever to have won the 500cc World Championship. This particular specimen was one of only four E95s to be built, and features a spectacular exposed clutch, an AC fuel pump that humorously requires the bike to be stood on its rear wheel for priming, a full 54bhp or power, and a streamlined design, and underwent a complete mechanical restoration in the early '00s, meaning that it should run as well as it did more than half a century ago.

  • Suzuki TU250X Motorcycle

    Just getting started in the motorcycle scene? As tempting as they might be, you — and your brains, bones, and organs — are better off skipping the superbike scene and hopping aboard something a little more tame, like the Suzuki TU250X Motorcycle ($4,000). Sporting a stylish retro design, the TU250X features a 249cc four-stroke SOHC engine, a five-speed transmission, a diamond-shaped steel tube frame, front disc and rear drum brakes, and a low 30.3-inch seat height that's great for beginners.

  • Lito Sora Electric Motorcycle

    Most companies would be happy to take a traditional bike, slap an electric engine and some batteries in it, and call it a day. But not Lito. It took cues from Bobber and Street Fighter bikes to create the Lito Sora Electric Motorcycle ($44,000). Built from the ground-up as an electric superbike, the Sora sports the world's first electric motorcycle seat, letting ride in a low position on the highway, then move the seat higher for more aggressive riding. Other features include an integrated GPS system and touch screen, high-quality suspension components, a regenerative braking system, an on-board charging port and sealed, lockable storage compartment, carbon fiber fairing and an aluminum chassis, a CVT transmission that helps the Sora move from 0-60 in roughly four seconds on its way to a top speed of 120 mph, and a unique notification system that emails you when it's done charging and ready to ride.
