Featured Listing: Toni Elias Suzuki GSX-R1000 Factory Yoshimura Superbike (MotoAmerica)

11.20.2017 Update: Relisted due to a buyer that dropped out. Links updated. -MI

RSBFS welcomes a new collection to our pages. Check out this fantastic Yosh Superbike ridden by Toni Elias, and then stay tuned for some amazing more hardware to come. Thanks for supporting the site, Pete!

Race bikes are an interesting prospect. Part uncompromising wild stallion, part rule book slave - but mostly rock star when piloted by one of the best - the life of a cutting edge racer is miserably short. Teams upgrade to new bikes with each passing year, and successfully competitive machines earn a second life as a collectable piece of memorabilia when the cheers of the crowd and the spray of champagne have faded. Such is the situation with this wonderful icon from the young MotoAmerica Superbike series. Developed by the legendary Yoshimura Racing Team and piloted by Moto2 World Champion turned Moto America racer Toni Elias in his stunning MotoAmerica debut (2016), what you are looking at is a work of art, a potential track day weapon, and a trophy unlike any other.

Featured Listing: 2016 Suzuki GSX-R1100 Factory Yoshimura MotoAmerica Superbike (Toni Elias)

Helmed by superstar Wayne Rainey, MotoAmerica (sanctioned by the AMA and FIM) set out to put Americans back onto the top step of international motorcycle racing. While it is still early days, the showing of Jake Gange in WSBK competition is a good sign. Another good sign? MotoAmerica has become a destination for renowned European racers as well. Thus, Toni Elias landed a ride in the Yoshimura camp alongside the ever-popular Roger Lee Hayden. Moreover, Toni Elias is the newly crowned 2017 MotoAmerica Superbike champ. And this bike was his first step to that championship. Here is the seller to tell you more:

From the seller:
Here is your opportunity to own a real factory superbike. This is Toni Elias's 2016 Factory Yoshimura Suzuki GSXR1000 superbike. This is the real deal. full factory superbike suspension with telemetry, the fresh motor pumps out 221 rwhp on VP MR12. It weighs right on the AMA limit at 370 lbs with a full tank of fuel. One off parts include the hand formed Yoshimura fuel tank, billet sub frame, massive radiator, full Ti Yoshimura pipe and numerous other Yoshimura only parts, The brakes are MotoGP spec Brembo radial calipers clamping down 330mm superbike rotors. 17 inch light weight Martek magnesium wheels. A Motec ignition system with a Yoshimura Kit wiring harness creates the fire. Yea it is pure crazy eye candy. This bike was the winner of 5 Moto America races last year with Toni "The Tiger" Elias twisting the throttle. Elias won the AMA Superbike title this year on the new GSXR1000. I guarantee you will not ever ride a better setup machine. The brakes are just one finger pull from 180mph stoppers. The motor accelerates so smoothly, its all drive no spin! I saw this bike at the NY Motorcycle Show in December of last year and had to have it! I bought it directly from Yoshimura at the end of last season. I used it at a couple of track days this summer and it is so amazing. I have a huge collection of superbikes that I'm now liquidating to pursue car racing full time. With age comes a cage! If you desire the ultimate track tool look no more. Here is your E-ticket ride.

RSBFS has known this collector for a number of years, and there has always been some interesting machinery in his stable. Unlike some who acquire bikes for museums and static displays, this individual is also someone who likes to ride. Thus, this Toni Elias Superbike has already seen a couple of track days. Hopefully it can go to a home that encourages an active lifestyle. For while this may be an outstanding man cave conversation piece, the real special sauce can only be experienced out on the track. Expensive for a track-day bike? No question. But if you want the best you can assure yourself that YOU will be the limitation here, not your hastily converted streetbike.

More from the seller:
If you have any questions or you need additional photos call me on 1-203-515-5146 or email me at bocco1@optonline.net There is so much more to this bike that I haven't even begun to list. The cost to build this bike is in the $100's of thousands to build and develop into a true winner. You can own it for a fraction of build cost.

I will include shipping to anywhere in the United States to the winning bidder. You foreign Dudes gotta pay all shipping and importing fee. God bless America!!!!

The history of MotoAmerica is not extensive enough to have much market data on values, but you can bet your bottom dollar this build was a no-expenses-spared exercise in developing a dominant Superbike. While rules limit what can be done in the class, these are very competitive when compared to WSBK machinery. Think of the best suspension available - with a setup developed by one of the best riders available today. One the engine side, nobody could accuse the Yoshimura Suzukis from being weak out of the corners or down the straights; you may need to recalibrate your brain as straights become shorter as you twist the throttle. Thankfully the brakes and remainder of the chassis is up to snuff. Brake and corner by thought as much as will.

Here is the deal with ex racebikes: Today something this new is still a novelty and a status symbol. Given time - and the continued rise to fame of Toni Elias - this becomes a very real collector item with astounding values (a Moto2 machine ridden by Jorge Lorenzo recently fetched $133,544 USD in a Bonhams auction). Until that happens you have yourself a piece of furniture that tops out above 180 mph and makes you the envy of everyone at your next track day. Just think of all of the custom Yosh parts on this thing - the entire rear subframe is bespoke for this racer, as is the tail piece. Plus there is a second hand-formed aluminum tank (apparently with a dent courtesy of Josh Herrin) valued at some $7,500(!). What's not to like? Check out this fantastic 2016 Yoshimura-Suzuki GSX-R1000 MotoAmerica Superbike before it's gone!

Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale Recap!

Time to review the outcome of the Bonhams Autumn Stafford auction! From all indications, this was a very successful event, and some uber rare machinery went home with new owners. Congratulations to buyers and sellers! -MI


From the fine folks at Bonhams comes the Autumn Stafford Sale - a dedicated motorcycle and motorcycle memorabilia auction to be held in person and online on October 15, 2017. While we don't have room to show you each of the 300+ lots, check out some of the fantastic offerings available below.


Jorge Lorenzo works 2007 World Championship-winning 2007 Aprilia 250cc RSW Grand Prix Racer

SOLD for $133,544 USD

Hot on the heels of his first 250cc World Championship with Honda, Jorge Lorenzo jumped to Aprilia and took his #1 plate with him. Utilizing this factory works RSW, Lorenzo showcased his rise to fame with a second World Championship. This historically significant racer has been documented by Aprilia as the genuine article.


NEW 1987 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

SOLD for $40,981 USD

RSBFS readers are pretty rabid when it comes to the Gamma. Representing the closest road-going racer available at the time, the square-four two stroke is a milestone machine for collectors. This particular bike is brand new, has only push mileage on the clocks, and has never been registered. This must surely be the rarest of the 500cc Gammas we have ever seen on these pages.



1990 Honda VRP-RS500 Grand Prix Racing Motorcycle

SOLD for $42,499 USD

The Honda RS500 was a customer/privateer version of the works NS500 triple. With a long pedigree of success, the lighter three cylinder two stroke powerplant paved the way for Freddie Spencer's victory. This particular bike is one of only three 1990 machines built in Italy by Verona Racing Products (VRP). Using a custom chassis and updated components, this RS500 represented a major update to a machine originally launched in 1982.


1991 Honda VFR750R Type RC30

SOLD for $28,080 USD

No high-brow motorcycle auction could be considered legitimate without an RC30. Long the bellwether of collector prices and trends, the VFR750R is THE iconic homologated superbike. This wonderful example is a UK bike, has but 3,976 miles on the odometer, and has some well-documented history. Is the collector market appreciating? This 1991 Honda RC30 might be the one to watch.



1983 Laverda TT1 RGS Corsa

SOLD for $36,428 USD

The up and down fortunes of Laverda are highlighted by this stunning TT1 RGS Corsa. Pattered after the factory works machines from the year previous, only a handful of completed bikes were delivered to select customers. Considered semi-works bikes, these Corsas were campaigned in TT and endurance races throughout Europe. Sadly Laverda suffered more downs than ups in the intervening years - but this 1983 Laverda TT1 RGS Corsa gives a glimpse of what the future could have been like for the iconic Italian marque.



1997 Ducati 916 Senna II

SOLD for $25,044 USD

Few motorsports celebrities command the respect reserved for the legendary Ayrton Senna. A Formula 1 phenom, a record breaker and a shooting star until his unexpected death in 1994, Ayrton Senna was also a social activist. Concerned with the large number of impoverished and homeless children in his native country of Brazil, Ayrton was a tireless supporter of their cause. The Senna edition of the sublime 916 was to raise money for his charity - and introduced the world to one of the most striking and rare Ducati models ever made.


1974 Laverda 744cc SFC

SOLD for $45,535 USD

Laverda went all in for endurance racing in the 1970's, and the SFC ( super freni competizione ) was a half-faired homologation special, with triple-disk brakes and right-side gearshift. Most often seen in the factory's signature orange, the model was a successful endurance racer and ride-to-the-race privateer machine. This 1974 Laverda SFC is documented in the SFC Registry, with the frame and engine numbers validated as correct.


1977 MV Agusta Boxer

SOLD for $78,849 USD

What you are looking at is one of only two MV Agusta Boxer bikes ever produced. A naming conflict with a certain four-wheeled Italian manufacturer located in Maranello prompted MV to change the name of the line to Monza early in the production cycle. Born from the bones of the 750 America model, the Boxer/Monza model is punched out to 837cc improving power and top speed. This 1977 MV Agusta Boxer is an ultra-rare example of Count Augusta's finest work.


1975 Bimota 247cc YB1 Racing Motorcycle

SOLD for $22,008 USD

You are undoubtedly familiar with Bimota's climb to fame with their legendary street bike kits, and later fully constructed motorcycles. But their roots were planted in the fertile grounds of motorsport competition; most notably, the smaller capacity roadracers that were popular in Europe. This 250cc 1975 Bimota YB1 is one of only 12 and was campaigned successfully in the World Championship by Swiss rider Bruno Kneubühler (whose career spanned from 50cc through 500cc GP bikes). Like all Bimotas, the craftmanship of the frame ensures flex-free handling, and the bodywork makes it look fast just standing still.


1976 Bimota 492cc SB1 Racing Motorcycle

SOLD for $16,696 USD

Another fabulous and rare Bimota racer (number 20 of 50 frames constructed), this SB1 utilizes here is fitted with a Suzuki TR500 engine, the water-cooled racing version of the road-going T500 twin. Check out the auction details to see the innovative frame layout - this SB1 highlights the ingenuity of the Bimota crew. This amazing bike is offered in unrestored, running condition.


1986 Ducati 750 F1 Montjuich

SOLD for $21,249 USD

Named after the fabled TT course laid out near Barcelona Spain, the Ducati 750 F1 Montjuich is a race-replica variant of the F1 line. Sporting engine, chassis, exhaust, and suspension improvements, the Montjuich was limited to a total of 200 units (all featured numbered plaques). This 1986 Ducati 750 F1 Montjuich is Number '002' and is truly a remarkable example of the model.


1981 BMW Magni

SOLD for $9,107 USD

Arturo Magni is perhaps best known for his work with competition models from MV Agusta. But following the close of MV, he set up shop for himself, and branched out. This 1981 BMW is claimed to be one of the fewer than 150 units ever created. It sits in unrestored condition, with an unbelievable 134 miles on the odometer. Far from mainstream - yet accessible via ample BMW parts and drive train knowledge - this 1981 BMW Magni looks to be quite the exotic conundrum.


1994 Bimota SB6

SOLD for $7,285 USD

This list would not be complete without a streetable Bimota - which brings us to this beautiful SB6. One of the more affordable lots in this incredible auction, the SB6 features motive power courtesy of the Suzuki GSX-R1100. Displaying a sense of artistry while serving up performance, the SB6 was one of the most successful Bimota road machines. This 1994 Bimota SB6 shows a mere 9,900 km (about 6,100 miles) on the dials.


1982 Hesketh V1000

NO SALE - lot withdrawn

This 1982 Hesketh V1000 won the popular vote with the RSBFS staff; ultra rare, undeniably cool, and a meteoric failure. The good Lord Hesketh set out to build his own brand of sporting motorcycles in the vein of Vincent, but his lavish lifestyle, failing Formula 1 team and other poor investments drained any capital and doomed this noble project. While Hesketh did launch the brand starting in 1980, from 1984 onwards it has sought suitors and investment to stay afloat (both Cagiva and Triumph were purportedly intersted, but passed). With only about 130 V1000 models created (and another 40-50 of the ultra rare "Vampire" sport tourer), this 1982 Hesketh V1000 remains an interesting yet obscure model for collectors.


This Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale auction has so much more to offer, so be sure and review the full listing on the Bonhams website. Here are a few teasers of what you might find.

Made for Japan: 1984 Yamaha RZV500R

The Japanese home market for sport motorcycles is the stuff of dreams for those of us based in the US. Some of the best and most extreme examples of high-tech performance sadly never makes it out of the country of origin when it comes to the Big Four. Take the V4 two-stroke RZ500 from Yamaha. While the rest of the world made due with a steel framed version of this "GP bike for the street," the home market RZV came in 20 lbs underweight thanks to a new aluminum perimeter chassis. Because of the limited run (1600 units), RZV frames were all welded by hand. The RZV also featured adjustable front forks (preload available via the top of the trees), a fuel gauge (doubled as the temp gauge) and cleaner bodywork thanks to the deleted grab handles.

1984 Yamaha RZV500R for sale on eBay

While the chassis and components of the RZV are all upsides, the fact that these bikes were made exclusively for the home market in Japan means that they are also restricted in power compared to made-for-export RZs. With some 64 horsepower on tap this is not exactly a tiddler, but a far cry from the 85-88 HP output of the exported model. Thankfully the restrictions are relatively simple to reverse: this engine is starved via inlet (carb jetting) and exhaust restrictor plates. From there, the sky is the limit as there are volumes of knowledge concerning performance improvements from the big, double-crank V-4.

From the seller:
THIS VERY RARE, U.S. TITLED, 1 OF ONLY 1600 BUILT, VERY LOW MILAGE, JAPANESE MODEL 1984 YAMAHA RZ 500R WITH THE ALUMINUM FRAME. IT HAS BEEN IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS FOR MANY YEARS. ORIGINALLY IMPORTED FROM JAPAN BY A PRIVATE COLLECTOR IN 2008.

AVAILABLE ONLY IN JAPAN WITH A LIMITED PRODUCTION OF JUST 1600 UNITS FOR THE JAPANESE RZV's, ALL OF WHICH SOLD IN WEEK OR SO. THE RZV IS 20 POUNDS LIGHTER THEN THE RZ THANKS TO THE HAND BUILT ALUMINUM FRAME AND THE LOSS OF THE HAND RAIL ON THE TAIL.

YAMAHA WOULD ONLY PRODUCE THE RZV's IN THERE #1 FACTORY IN JAPAN TO ENSURE THESE 1600 BIKES WERE BETTER THEN ANY RD/RZ THAT WENT TO NORTH AMERICA, ECT.

SO NOW HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN AN AMAZING 1984 YAMAHA RZV 500R WITH ONLY 3200 ORIGINAL DOCUMENTED MILES (5198 KM IT IS A JAPANESE MODEL) ALL ORIGINAL! NEVER ABUSED! NEVER MOLESTED! NEVER PAINTED! ONLY MAINTENANCE TYPE WORK PERFORMED, TIRES BRAKES BRAKE FRONT CALIPERS APEAR TO BE NOS ALONG WITH A FEW OTHER PARTS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT ON OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS.

DURING THE VERY HARD AND LONG PROCESS TO OBTAIN A FLORIDA TITLE, I HAD THE IMPORT DOCUMENTS TRANSLATED AND CERTIFIED IN ORDER TO GET THE FLORIDA DMV AND A FEDERAL DOT CERTIFICATION ON THE ORIGINALITY OF THE BIKE, VIN, AND MILAGE. THEY DID THE CONVERSION FROM KM TO MILES FOR THE TITLE TO BE ISSUED.

THE BIKE IS IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION STILL HAVING THE ORIGINAL STICKER ON THE WIND SCREEN AND ONLY SHOWING A FEW SMALL BLEMISHES/PATINA ON THE ORIGINAL PAINT/FINISH. SHE STARTS ON THE FIRST KICK, IDLES AND REVS OUT BETTER THEN MY OTHER RZ's/RZV's.
ALL THE LIGHTS AND GUAGES WORK AS THEY SHOULD THE TIRES ARE NOT DRY ROTTED (BUT I WOULD'NT GO DRAG A KNEE WITH THEM). SHE IS READY FOR YOUR COLLECTION, MAN CAVE, OR PARK HER IN YOUR OFFICE OR LIVING ROOM.

AVAILABLE FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE 2 AND I AM WILLING TO SHARE.

DONT MISS OUT TELL YOUR WIFE THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH THE RARE LIMITED HARD TO FIND CASSIC VINTAGE BIKES WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE EVERY YEAR!!!

The seller here has done some work for US-based buyers. The bike has apparently been titled in the US. The KM clocks have been retained, making riding a bit of a mathematical exercise for those of you who stick to speed limits (1 mph = 1.6 kph), but that is certainly not insurmountable. Of some concern are the originality and age of items like tires, fluids and engine seals. If this bike has not been ridden regularly (and the low mileage indicates it probably hasn't been), there is a very good chance that the crank seals have become cracked and brittle after some 33 years. This is not a deal killer - just a warning not to spend too much time at redline until a proper pressure test can be conducted. Otherwise, what you are looking at is a a very clean and pretty solid RZV, which is indeed a rare collectable. Pipes look a bit too glossy for my eye, but perhaps I am simply jaded and nitpicky....

This offering is both an eBay auction with an opening ask of $16,000 USD, and a Buy It Now for $19,000. Thus far there have been no bids on the auction side although there are about a dozen potential buyers watching this one. Check it out here if you lust after a clean RZ500 - and remember that this is the more rare aluminum frame RZV-R model - this one might be a good one to check out. Stock up on your castor oil supplies and let freedom ring-a-ding-ding. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R712

The 1980s were a watershed era for sport bikes. This was a period of constant escalation between the Big Four manufacturers out of Japan. Amidst the fighting came many new innovations and a quantum leap in performance. And none epitomized the arms race quite like the revolutionary GSX-R from Suzuki. A winner in the showroom and a clear favorite for amateur and professional racers alike, the air/oiled cooled GSX-R was a definitive game changer for riders everywhere. Fast forward 30+ years later, and while the 80's era GSX-R is still striking, performance has not kept up with modern machinery. That is where this owner stepped in, creating a vintage 80s hot rod with performance enhancements to bridge the gap. This is an amazing build that we know RSBFS readers can appreciate; this one-of-a-kind machine has the stance and the history to give it serious street creds, but with updates to back it up in the canyons.

So how do you build a GSX-R712? Start with a good 1986 example of a GSX-R750 - well regarded as the best chassis of the day. Remove the 750cc engine and replace it with a second generation GSF1200 Bandit motor. Purists will note that the 1200 Bandit was an evolution of the GSX-R1100 engine, which makes this a perfect fit from a lineage perspective. Once that epic change has been completed, you then turn your attention to, well, everything. Rebuild the front end with new and upgraded components. Work over the swing arm and rebuild everything connected to it. Replace and upgrade braking components. Anything still stock must be completely refurbished. With the mechanicals in perfect shape, you then turn your attention to cosmetics. This is where little changes can make a huge impression. Source new lightweight bodywork and make subtle alterations to clean up the classic lines. Dress up the wheels and powdercoat to suit. Apply paint and graphics that act as an homage to the original, but modernize as well. Then step back and behold the glory of what you have created: a GSX-R712.

Bikes like this amazing GSX-R Rod do not come along often. This is mainly because this is a very expensive, time-consuming process requiring patience and know-how. Most riders lack both the cash and the skill to create something this stunning, but would not hesitate to drool over it (and lust for one). A bike this good makes a personal statement that tells the world that you have great vintage taste and yet you also worship at the altar of performance. It is also likely a losing proposition for the seller; I could easily see $10k worth of parts in this rocket, not counting paintwork or specialized labor.

Slab-sided Gixxers are HOT right now - we see both collectable as well as pretty rough examples on a semi-regular basis. And we see the occasional Limited Edition unicorn - with prices in the stratosphere. This particular example takes the basic slabbie form and uses it as the foundation for a real hot rod superbike. Think of it as a higher performance slabbie with the cache of an L.E., but without the price tag. There is no doubt that this is a special bike - something the entire RSBFS staff agrees upon. The conversion is super sano, the lines are amazingly clean, and yet the whole package retains the classic looks of the original GSX-R. Check out the large number of very high-res pictures. I dare you not to fall in love with this bike. Once you do, reach out to the seller (stathome@bellsouth.net). You cannot build this bike for the asking price, and you will never see another like it again. Good Luck!!

Little bike, big fun: 2002 Honda NSR 150 SP

It has often been said that riding a slow bike fast is far more enjoyable than riding a fast bike slowly. Most of the hyper-super-mega cycles listed on these pages can exceed national speed limits in seconds - and first gear. But with a smaller bike, you need to work much harder to maximize your forward progress. Think of honing your gear selection skills rather than simply relying upon big waves of torque; sharpening your corner entry with speed rather than sitting back and cruising. Ride it correctly and bikes such as this 2002 Honda NSR150 SP can fly - but the rider becomes a much bigger piece of the overall equation.

2002 Honda NSR150 SP for sale on eBay

Outside of the US the remainder of the civilized world revolves around small motorcycles and scooters. These smaller modes of transport work well in the tight confinements of smaller European and Asian cities, and are generally affordable and thrifty on fuel (which can be very expensive in many areas of the world). However not all smaller bikes need be boring, commuter-minded devices. Honda - being a motorsports driven company - offers sport models of smaller displacement machines to build brand awareness and introduce younger riders to their sport bike lineup. The NSR150 SP is just such a model. With sporty accents and livery reflecting Honda's key partner in motorsports - Repsol - the NSR150 SP offers riders the look of a bigger bike, and a sharper riding experience than other smaller scooters. Just check out the vented brakes and that sweet single-sided swing arm.

From the seller:
Want to be like 6 X Gp Champion Marc Marquez and ride a Respol GP Bike? Now is your chance to own an as new factory Respol Honda NSR 150 SP. I brought this bike into the USA brand new back in 2002 and has been in my private collection of motorcycles since then. This NSR is in perfect condition with No flaws. Bike is 100% original with the exception of a Tyga pipe and solo tail section. I do have the original tail section and rear seat that will be included with the sale of the motorcycle. Current Mileage is 888 Kilometers which translates to about 555 miles. This motorcycle deserves to be placed in a private collection of someone who will care for it as much as I have. Very few of these ever become available if your a Repsol and MotoGP fan this is a must have.

This enterprising seller has listed this bike hot on the heels of Marc Marquez's triumphant 4th MotoGP championship, secured in Valencia over the weekend. And while this 150cc mini-motorcycle is hardly a MotoGP machine (or even Moto3), it does proudly wave the Repsol-Honda colors. The seller notes a solo tail section (can you imagine riding/commuting two-up on this bike?), and the Tyga exhaust is a common bolt on modification. Like most smaller motorcycles, mileage is low (under 600 miles claimed). Overall condition looks quite good. This is a reasonably rare motorcycle in the US, given that it was never officially imported. No sign of a plate or a title, however, so that might need to be sorted by potential buyers. Check it out here if you are interested in a great little knock-around sport bike to add to your stable. Good Luck!!
