Who cares what the idiots at work think?
I know for sure HONDA does not sell their MOTOGP bikes.
They wouldn't even let Rossi keep his favorite Honda. We're talking about Rossi here.
He kept asking for it, and they kept saying, "yes yes we understand" and in the end, he never got it. He did end up seeing the bike he asked for at a Honda function, as a display. Needless to say, Rossi wasn't too amused.
The bike's parts are one-offs fab'd just for the bike. Also, all the parts on the bike are quite expensive. From the brakes, to the computer, to the frame, to the suspension, valving, cams, pistons, wheels, sprockets, chain, brakes, clutch, gearing, etc. etc. etc.
So...yea, hard to price.
I don't know what your co-workers are looking for in terms of "pricing" the bike, but there's no way for anyone to actually purchase a MotoGP bike or build one, outside of factory teams. You either lease it, or you're on the team.
