Czech Republic Motorcycles Live On, Thanks to Praga

PRAGA also manufactures agricultural light and medium-duty vehicles, some race-ready but street-legal hypercars, as well as a brief run of enduro motorcycles.

Praga isn't exactly your traditional motorcycle manufacturer. Born in 1907 in then Czechoslovakia, Praga has been a cornerstone of the nation's industrial manufacturing throughout its tumultuous history, building everything from off-road, military-grade transport trucks and tanks to motorcycles and early airplanes. Of the sprawling fleet of vehicles that Praga made, one, in particular, remains well-regarded amongst classic motorcycle enthusiasts thanks to its high-performance engine and timeless design: the 1928 Praga BD 500. 

However, the company's operations in the 21st century have been rather limited, producing agricultural light and medium-duty vehicles, some race-ready but street-legal hypercars, as well as a brief run of enduro motorcycles. That's all about to change though, as Praga launches its first road-going motorcycle since 2003, known as the Praga ZS 800.

Here's the kicker: It's going to cost $92,226, and only 28 units will be made. Yes, Praga is serious.
