2007 Erion Built Honda CRB600RR Race Bike

Update 4.30.2014: Seller notes this one is now sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

DSCN0262_2

We've had the pleasure of featuring some really well put together track day machines, and this one is very good indeed. Built by none other than legendary AMA team Erion Racing, for the purpose of AMA racing in 2007. To my mind this would be a perfect step up from your first track day bike with lots of room to grow. With racing quality parts the likes of HRC, Arata/Ladybird, Ohlins, and more, you have to say it would very difficult to duplicate for the $6969 asking price. Click each picture for a high resolution version to inspect. Available in North Carolina.

Thanks for helping to support the site Jay!

from the seller:

2007 Erion Honda CRB600RR $6969
This is the real deal, a 2007 Erion built/owned AMA Sportbike. This was a "A" bike in 2007 and a "B" bike in 2008. I still have the MSO in Erion's name. This bike has hundreds of Pro hours put into the setup, it wasn't built from a crashed bike in somebody's basement, the longer you look at it the more cool stuff you find. She isn't a spring chicken but still pulls most 600s on the straight with my fat ass. This bike was raced on and off by the past AMA/Expert level rider for a few years and I bought it last year for track days. I used it for 5 weekends, mostly instructing in the "I" group, I rode it but never really pushed it (I'm losing my MoJo). This bike is capable of 1:35s at VIR, I got down to 1:43s. This bike needs nothing to go fast, really fast, or if you are like me it was content to ride at a reasonable pace. Look around, you will see other bikes in this price range without the pedigree and HRC parts... which would you rather have.

All required maintenance has been performed by PJ's Ducati/ Triumph in Albuquerque. Everything pictured in photo bucket album, plus a bit more is included in the sale. To sum it up, this is a; “turnkey collectors dream.” The Ducati is beyond explanation and my poor photo skills can't bring out the true quality of the motorcycle. You're buying a virtually new 2000 Ducati 996S with factory options. I'm the second owner and I have a clear title for the Ducati.

The Ducati has never seen a rainy day, never been abused, tracked, wrecked or dropped. Always stored in my garage on stands and covered. Started weekly and run up to temp, to maintain seal integrity. Oil has been changed every 6 months and coolant flushed every year. It's as you see it from the factory. All maintenance is up-to-date. It's a definite garage king.;-)

1997 Bimota YB11 Super Leggera Available in Pennsylvania

1997 Bimota YB11 For Sale

Our latest Feature Listing is this very clean YB11 Super Leggera. What makes this one rare, aside from the fact that it's 1 of 650 produced, is that it's been ridden too! I like this trend we've been seeing lately with exotics that aren't display only pieces. While readers from advreader.com are probably snickering at the suggestion that 8800 miles means ridden, that's more than most Bimotas will ever see. If you've got a corner of the stable that has been waiting for a seriously fast Italian mount that you can actually ride, this might be what you've been waiting for.

Bimota YB11 Cliff Notes: Utilizing the potent Yamaha 1000cc Thunderace motor, Bimota wraps it’s own bike around it with 51mm shocks, adjustable rake via eccentric bushes in the steering headstock, and the entire package weighs 31 pounds less than the Thunderace.

from the seller:

Rare 1997 YB11 Super Leggera Bimota for sale. Only 650 of these bikes ever produced. In great running condition with 8,805 original miles. This Bike is all original with the 1000cc Yamaha Thunderace engine and slip on Arrow canister. Accessories included: passenger seat, owner’s manual and tool kit. I am the 3rd owner of this bike and it has been well cared for. Previous owner stored the bike for a couple of years so I had it serviced in the fall of 2011 when I purchased it: carbs cleaned, oil and filter changed, and Pennsylvania inspection. There are 3 blemishes as shown in the photos. I don’t get to ride this bike often and need to make some room. Asking $8000. Interested parties can email me.

RSB Guidelines for Posting Consideration

Definition of a Rare SportBike: A sport enthusiast targeted model, upgraded limited edition, homologation special, or a survivor that was mass produced but rarely seen available in good to great condition anymore.

Rare SportBikes: 15+ Years Old
- The motorcycle needs to have a historical significance in the SportBike segment.
- Our readers appreciate bikes that are as close to as original as possible. Examples like this also bring the most cash.
- Modifications should be limited to improvements to address factory issues, period correct upgrades, and in moderation.
- Heavily customized bikes, no matter how much money has been invested, rarely bring positive attention on our site – especially when presented with a premium price.
- If the bike has been rebuilt it will need be deeply discounted and thorough documentation is required for consideration at all.
- Generally we don't accept projects.

Classics SportBikes: 25+ Years Old
- Restored, Survivor, or Complete Project. Projects are considered on a case by case basis and in general will need to be a very rare opportunity with good value pending a restoration.
- If modified it should be period correct or of such an incredible standard that it deserves international attention.
- Customs are generally not encouraged if they do not follow the above criteria.

Racebikes
- Machines with professional race history
- Factory or small manufacturer, dedicated race built bikes
- Track day packages that are ready to ride.
- No projects please.

What we don’t accept ever:
- Bikes that don’t follow either a factory/period correct presentation.
- Extreme customs, no matter the money invested.
- Bikes outside the sportbike segment, like cruisers, adventure bikes, scooters, and standards.

2002 Ducati 998S Bayliss: One Owner, 1500 Original Miles

Update: The owner has informed us this bike has sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Ducati 998S Bayliss For Sale

Our latest featured listing is from Scott in Maryland with his 2002 Ducati 998S Bayliss edition. The 998 debuted in 2002 and features the "Testastretta engine" which would go on to power the 999 series and was previously seen in the 996R. The S model got a horsepower bump over the standard issue as well as Ohlins suspension and carbon bits all over.

With such low mileage and living room storage time, this example looks to be in excellent shape as you can tell from the pictures (click each for hi-resolution).

from the seller:

I am ready to part with my 2002 Ducati 998S Bayliss. I am the original owner of this collectible beauty. Only 400 were made for the world to commemorate Troy Bayliss winning the World Superbike Championship in 2001. My bike has been ridden very sparingly. Everything about the bike is 100% original. It has all of 1500 miles on it. The Bayliss is a 998S edition with carbon fiber bits and Ohlins. Comes with special cover, stand, and plaque. This bike has been part of my collection for more than a decade. It has always been stored inside (garage and living room). Asking $17,500. Located in Maryland.

For those not familiar, the Bayliss edition was tribute to Troy Bayliss who won the World Superbike Championship in 2001 for Ducati. Here he is in action that year:

And I suspect that's exactly how you'd feel every time you find your favorite back road on this one. Good luck to buyers and seller!
