Three time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton, may be one of the greatest racing drivers of all time, but he is also a fan of motorcycles as well.
Hamilton continues to build his legacy and at the same time he is building the Hamilton brand. He has recently partnered with MV Agusta, an Italian motorcycle manufacturer with a long rich history in MotoGP, the premier motorcycle circuit racing series.
Hamilton co-designed the Dragster RR LH44, which will have a limited run of only 244 bikes that are personally signed by Lewis Hamilton, and reflects much of his style and creativity right down to Hamilton’s signature wing symbol which can be seen on many parts of the bike.
The beefy 800cc three-cylinder engine cranks out 140 horsepower at 13,100rpm, which makes for a very fast bike. Most of the bodywork is made from carbon fiber.
Ride-by-wire throttle control with multiple throttle maps and integrated traction control with eight different settings which offer many levels of control at the limit. The bike sells for $26,144 - £17,143. Lewis Hamilton and MV Agusta have put together a nice blend of performance and style.
