The celebrity motorcycle of choice is..

...a bike none of us would buy. Probably.

When you're a 'celebrity' and you're after a motorcycle the formula is often:

cost ( money no object) x style ( taste questionable) / number of said motorcycles due for production = chance of you buying that bike

The bike at the top of this list almost always appears to be a Confederate of some sort. The bespoke bikes are made in Alabama, cost a small fortune and production is limited to around 30 units a year. The current list of owners includes: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Bruce Springsteen, David Beckham, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage. And now Britney Spears is on the list, having just bought one for her boyfriend Jason Trawick. We're not sure anyone in the UK has bought one, however.

It seems that if you want to ride out the recession, the best thing you can do is produce ridiculously pricey motorcycles, limit their numbers and aim them at those in the annual earnings upper atmosphere.

The $45,000 X132 Hellcat like the one pictured to the left fits the formula perfectly and will no doubt be good at gathering dust in numerous Hollywood underground garages..
