1 of 65 in the U.S.: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna 1000R

MV Agusta spat out a raft of tribute bikes based on its insane F4 1000R in the mid to late aughts, but perhaps the closest to the company's heart was the F4 1000R Senna, named for Ayrton Senna, the late three-time Formula 1 champion. Senna had been a close personal friend of Claudio Castiglioni, MV Agusta president and father of the Ducati 916 and Monster and the MV Agusta F4 and F3.

The 2007 bike followed a 2002 Senna Edition F4, but was harder-edged than the previous version, and was blessed with a longer list of special suspension and go bits. Like the "standard" F4, the 2007 Senna made 174 horsepower at the crank, which was good for 0-60 in under three seconds, a high-nine-second quarter mile and a top speed within a gnat's eye of 190 mph.

Cosmetically, the bike sported the color-me-obvious grey and red paintwork bearing Senna's name, a contrasting red Alcantara seat and silver forged Marchesini wheels.

Mechanical changes include titanium nitride coating for the 50 mm Marzocchi USD fork, instead of the standard carbon nitride, the Sachs rear suspension is adjustable for high- and low-speed rebound and compression damping and braking is handled by Brembo Goldline monoblocs.

The F4 listed here is in excellent condition, as you would expect from an extremely rare and exclusive bike, and has clearly been stored inside. It has covered 4,700 miles since new, which is actually more than we would have guessed.

From the eBay listing:

The Senna is a special edition of the MV Agusta F4 1000R. With different paint, an alcantara seat, upgraded Brembo brakes, forged silver Marchesini wheels, a 50 mm titanium-nitride coated Marzocchi upside down fork, and a lightweight Sachs racing rear suspension this edition is truly special.

The 174 horsepower engine will help you get this one of 300 (only 65 brought to the US) bike moving.

With three days left in the sale, the bike has not attracted any bids. Buy-It-Now is set at $25,000. Comments are open, so let us know your thoughts below.

No Replacement for Artificial Displacement: 1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo

As the rest of the Big Four tried to grab turbo sportbike market share in the early to mid-80s by strapping fuel injection systems and snails to run-of-the-mill UJMs, Kawasaki took the game a little more seriously, and the results made the rest of the crowd look silly. The 1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo was lighter, sharper, handled better and went faster than the others, an actual sportbike among a crowd of boosted pigs.

1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo for sale on eBay

Building on the legend of the insane, and truly rare 1,000cc turbo 1978 Kawasaki Z1R/TC, and its AMA-conquering GPz line, Kawi tweaked an already solid formula into a complete street menace. The engines got new pistons, oil scavenge pumps, and a beefier gearbox to handle the boost.

The magazines went nuts, with at least one hailing the '84 GPz750 Turbo as the fastest streetbike they had ever tested. Capable of 148 mph on the big end and quarter-mile potential in the high 10-second range, the Turbo's numbers stood up to naturally-aspirated 1,000cc bikes for the next decade or so.

This particular GPz Turbo appears to be in fantastic shape, though the pictures are a little low-res. With the bike showing just 5,400 miles, the seller claims it looks more like it is three than 33. It carries new Bridgestone Battlax tires and braided steel Galfer brake lines in black to keep a stock appearance. On a bike this old, anything to keep it sticking and stopping is a welcome improvement. But just in case you do feel the need to take it back to 100 percent original and park it, the 1984 tires and brake lines are included.

From the eBay listing:

Up for sale is my Mint condition. One previous Original owner bike. This is the Cleanest, unmolested GPZ TURBO Ive seen in years. It looks like it is three years old. It looks almost new.

Honest and Original: 1994 Yamaha YZF 750 R

Built in the days when World Superbike and AMA Superbike still controlled huge fanbases, and names like Duhamel, Russell, Stevens, Polen and Chandler lined American road racing grids, the 1994 Yamaha YZF750R sought to bring some of the sound and fury to the streets.

1994 Yamaha YZF750R for sale on eBay

The bad news for Yamaha, of course, was that they found little success in either championship when compared to their rivals, settling instead for a smattering of wins at the Suzuka 8-hour during the YZF's production run. The exception was 1991, when Thomas Stevens snagged the AMA championship aboard an OW-01.

This YZF isn't exactly low mileage, but it does not appear to have been abused, and has clean, original fairings, albeit with some scratches and cracking. It comes with one OEM replacement side panel, and is wearing new tires and brake pads after a recent service. With 120 or so horses in a 500-lb frame, the bike should acquit itself well even today.

From the listing:

Yamahas Street legal Full on Race bike of the era, Won World Super Bike Races and more.

Many said this made Yamaha's old OWO1's factory racers seem Slow and Heavy.

Bought from the original owner this bike is in Really Nice Original condition, 23500 miles and just serviced from being in in storage. Oil changed, New tires, EBC rotors and pads, Just dyno tuned by Fox Motor Sports, Grand Rapids, MI.

Bike Starts, Runs, Shifts and Clutches as it should. Fun to ride pulls good up to redline.

This bike has scratches, small dents, chips and cracks in the fiberglass panels, I have located one NOS left side panel (have not changed, the original is very nice, can see new one in the pictures.

Please review all pictures and ask any questions you may have, I have no intention of misleading anyone. See my feed back as a seller have sold other Motorcycles through the EBay System with 100% Feedback.

No Shipping available but will work with your shipper for pick up, will accept check's but all will clear bank before shipping.

$1000.00 PayPal deposit with in 24 hours of auction end, full payment with in 7 days.

There are just over three days left in the auction, and bidding is still south of $3,000. The championships may not have come easy for the YZF750, but it is still a beautiful machine, especially in this shape.

Granddaddy’s Repli-Racer: Clean 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750

The values the first Suzuki GSX-Rs have begun their inevitable climb into the stratosphere, but it is still possible to pick one up for less-than-stupid money. They are rare and sought-after in any condition, so you cannot expect to pay Craigslist-bargain prices for them, but they're attainable.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

And you want one. The boxy. tri-colored fairing could only have come from a specific era in an especially loony decade. Before the smoothed-over soapbar fairings of the Honda CBR Hurricane pushed slippery shapes into fashion, Suzuki cut and creased its way to the unique, slab-sided form-over-function fairings we see here.

The bodywork is odd and gawky, but purposeful, so it works. And if the looks don't get you, what's underneath the plastic is ready and willing to try. The bike is built around an alloy perimeter frame that straddles an air- and oil-cooled 750cc inline four.

For its time, the bike was a featherweight technological marvel, sporting anti-dive forks on a bike that barely pushed 400 pounds without fluids.

This is example shows very well, though it sports a few blemishes, and has a smattering of non-original paint. The seller notes a raft of recent maintenance, including a carb cleaning, a valve adjustment and new fork seals.

From the listing:

Original super clean 1986 GSXR750. 49 state bike with clear California title. 13,200 original miles. Cosmetically the bike is extremely clean All original fairings that have been professionally repaired (standard cracks around mirror mounts) and repainted (only the cowl, side panels and lower. The rest are original paint & condition) in factory colors. All original hardware. No dents in tank. A little bubbling of air under tank decal strips on side (see pic) No tears in seat. The engine cosmetically is extremely clean. All original and complete. Good tires. Carbs just rebuilt. Complete service and valve adjustment just done. New fork seals. Has manual adjustable cam chain tensioner. Comes with original one. Runs and rides great.

* Bike is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction early

The bike is at $3,500 with a single bid and five days left in the auction. Grab it before the prices soar!

Sold in 24 Hours: Yamaha FZR400RR 3TJ

Eric L. didn't even give us the chance to post this gorgeous Yamaha FZR400RR from RSBFS Premier Sponsor Deftone Cycles before he snapped it up. In keeping with our recent flood of 400s, this aluminum Deltabox'd rocket is destined to be the Yin to Eric's Yamaha FZR750's full-bore Yan.

We're humbled that our website has led Eric to four classic sportbike purchases so far, and it looks like more are in the works.

We'll let Eric explain in detail below, but he and Deftone owner Greg hit it off quickly after Eric went hunting for a Honda NSR250:

... To date I've bought 4 motorcycles from ads on your awesome website. (The four bikes from your website are the Suzuki XN85, Honda VFR400R, Honda CBR250RR and the Yamaha FZR750RU) Your in-depth analysis and unbiased posts help me to clearly understand the motorcycle being presented.

When I purchased the CBR250RR from Greg we immediately struck up a friendship as we both love an appreciate the beauty of these great motorcycles.  I soon learned that Greg had a connection in Japan and I knew then he was the man to help me build my collection of gray market motorcycles.

Recently I relayed to Greg my desire for a Honda NSR250... we discussed my budget along with the criteria and I gave Greg a wish-list of the bikes I was interested in.....after only a few days of looking Greg found me a beautiful Honda NCR250 MC18 II (See attached picture).  The bike is due to ship from Japan in a few months or so and I couldn't be more pleased with the diligence and expert advice that Greg exhibited throughout the process.

On Monday Greg shared with me his new association with Rare Sport Bikes For Sale as a Premier Sponsor.
I thought the presentation on the website was perfect and saw that Greg had several bikes for sale and one that interested me. I contacted Greg immediately and within 10 minutes I bought his Yamaha FZR400RR...which will be the perfect addition to my collection and a companion for my FZR750RU.

I'm so very pleased with everything that Greg has done for me and am looking forward to more moto purchases from him in the future.

Anyone reading this and who has a desire for acquiring beautiful motorcycles should not hesitate contacting Greg at Deftone Cycles.

Please use any part of or all of this email on your website.

Best regards,

Eric L.

Thanks for the props, Eric!

Handcrafted Performance: 2009 Ecosse Iconoclast for Sale

What's that you say? All of your bike-night buddies keep upstaging you with their Superleggeras and Desmosedicis and RC213Vs? Those crippling racebike ergos would leave you in agony the next day anyway... If you want to one-up those crotch-rocket poseurs, and money is no object, look no further than this Ecosse Iconoclast that retailed in 2009 at a cool $80,000. You are very unlikely to run into another one, ever, as only 11 were built to be sold on the 20ltd.com luxury goods website.

With today's sophisticated technology, something "handbuilt" isn't necessarily better or higher performance: more robots mean less human error. But there is undeniable exclusivity and cachet that goes along with something that was built by actual craftspeople. Even if this isn't your style, you can't help but admire the craftsmanship on display. Information is pretty sparse and road tests even rarer, as you might expect with so few built.

Keep in mind that, although that looks like just another Harley-engined custom, the engine is bespoke, an all-aluminum, 45° v-twin with 2000cc with a square 108mm x 108mm bore and stroke. That monster motor puts 135hp and a frankly terrifiying 140 ft-lbs of torque through a Baker six-speed gearbox created specifically for this application. The complete bike is no featherweight, but with a dry weight of 460lbs and with premium Öhlins suspension at the front and rear, the pretentiously-named Iconoclast can get a serious boogie on. Stopping should be no problem either, with a pair of six-piston ISR brakes up front.

From the original eBay listing: 2009 Ecosse Iconoclast for Sale
This is an Ecosse Iconoclast motorcycle that I purchased new several years ago for $80,000. It is a 2 liter twin which is equivelant to 120 cubic inches. Everything, all the parts, are of the highest quality, the attention to detail is without equal.  More information is avaiable at ecossemoto.com and by doing a search on the Internet where there are some magazine articles, etc. The bike is in excellent condition with approximately 1000 miles on it.  I have had other motorcycles during this time but due to healh issues I have not been riding for a while. The Ecosse is located in Southern California, between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. You can see it pretty much any time.
The asking price for this bit of hand-built motoring mayhem? A screaming deal at $34,995. No, an Ecosse Iconoclast is probably not really a sportbike. Sure, the craftsmanship is stunning and the performance is there, but the overall effect is more musclebike than actual road-racer. And it's definitely not subtle, but if you're looking to make a two-wheeled statement regarding both the size of your wallet and your appreciation of hand-built motorcycles and want to go fast while doing it, this is your best option.
