answer:
MotoGP bikes are a one-of-a-kind prototype in which every part is custom made. It's nearly impossible to put a value on a GP motorcycle - though one way to get an idea is to take a look at what it would cost to lease one from a manufacturer: it is in the neighborhood of $3 million a year. The lease price is around the actual value. They are made in single-digit numbers, and the development costs run in the tens of millions of dollars, so a round figure of $2-3 million would be a fair appraisal. The complexity of a Moto GP bike is truly staggering. Many of the bikes have TWO crankshafts to make them gyroscopically neutral. Most also have GPS data of every last square inch of every last track on the schedule, as well as the camber/slope of each corner, so that the onboard computer can apportion just the right amount of engine power to the rear wheel for where the bike is on the track/how hard or soft the tire is/how much grip is available, etc. By understanding this, it is EASY to see how these incredible machines can each be worth $3 million dollars.
