Following in the skid marks of the custom Chanel motorcycle Karl Lagerfeld had commissioned for a photoshoot last year, Hermès has teamed up with Yamaha to create the VMAX Concept Bike and matching helmet.
This time, though, the bike is actually for sale.
Priced at a cool $62,000 and taking up to four months for delivery, it comes in black or chocolate buffalo leather. So you can buy five Hermès Birkin bags or one Hermès motorcycle, though the motorcycle will likely be delivered much faster. No word on if the matching helmets look like horse heads. —Christianna Ablahad
