The Suter MMX 500

The Suter MMX 500 is the end-game bike for many. Unfortunately, most won't be able to afford or get their hands on it. Manufactured with the goal of having only 99 units, the limited production is just the tip of the iceberg. Why? Because it comes with a price tag somewhere around $130,000, which is a lot of money for a bike.

Price and limited availability aside, the Suter MMX 500 is a powerful beast that should be coveted by those who have deep pockets. It is powered by a 576 cc V4 two-stroke, complete with two counter-rotating crankshafts. At best, it can produce 195 horsepower, or approximately 145.4 kW, at 13,000 rpm. At first glance, this is not much. Most superbikes can reach 200 hp easily these days. But, when you consider that it tips in at just 127 kg, then it's a superbike that's unlike any other we've ever seen.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the Suter MMX 500 is the 576 cc under square engine cylinders, which is responsible for giving it the torque it needs and yet is secure enough to hang on to it at top speeds.

The starting price is just CHF120,000 or roughly around $130,000 as mentioned earlier, but the bikes could easily sell for a whole lot more once every one of the 99 motorcycles has been snatched off the market. And believe me, it will be. It is a rare collectible piece that has very few contemporaries. This track-only superbike is unique with a power-to-weight ratio that you usually see only in world-class racing machines and owning one definitely is a sure-fire way to own a piece of history and memorabilia.

If you are looking for a road-legal GP replica, the Ronax 500 is the closest thing to the MMX 500. However, the Ronax doesn't have as much horsepower (160 hp) and weighs more (145 kg).
