Exceptional – 2007 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol with 285 Miles !

After Nicky Hayden's see-saw MotoGP championship in 2006, Honda's occasional race livery special edition for '07 was a lock.  The 2006-07 model was the second generation of the CBR1000RR, with many updates and lighter weight than the 2004-05 model.  This example has been carefully stored with the factory's break-in oil still in the crankcase and no doubt Hamamatsu air in the OE tires.

The second-gen Fireblade had a new head with double intake valve springs, revised ports, and 12.2:1 compression, a slight increase.  Minor decreases in steering head rake and front axle trail were part of a sharper-handling new chassis.  Brake disks are 10mm larger but thinner and lighter as a result.  Thinner radiators and some magnesium covers helped bring a 17 lbs weight reduction overall.  Evolutionary changes to the fairing don't mess with the original wicked-good looks.

It's hard to differentiate the CBR on offer from a brand-new machine - there is no damage or corrosion, barely any dust or dirt, and almost no miles.  The owner's comments from the eBay auction:

Authenticity can be a concern when limited editions come to market, especially in a very catchy and often dubbed graphics package.  Along with the plant code in the VIN, the silver frame, blue metallic seat fairing, a low serial number is one way to know.  My overnight research indicates that this bike's 00113 has a better chance of being the real thing, though hopefully a knowledgeable reader will chime in with the total production.  Either way, the buy-it-now is not insane money for a pre-nannie 170 hp commemorative, basically new to boot.  For a fan of the late Kentucky Kid, it's a winning tribute...
