2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 50th Anniversary LE #260 of 500
Location: Chandler, AZ
Price: $9,250 with reserve
I can definitely see myself rock'n one of these at some point before I get old and arthritis sets in. Everyone that I've talked, who owns one, says they absolutely love it and it's a rocket ship when allowed to breathe.
They look the part and I can only assume act the part with all of the upgrades that they came from the factory with. Ohlins, Brembo along side Marchesini top the distinguished list and add plenty of bling to the racer replica paint scheme.
This one is well used with 19,500 miles, but looks to be well taken care of alongside all of the fun that was had.
We can only assume that in 20 or so years these will be highly sought after bikes by those that snubbed them 5 short years ago. Perhaps these are the modern day RC30 and will appreciate beyond any ones wildest dreams. Only time will tell, but if you want to experience it on the cheap may I suggest picking one up now to avoid the long lines 20 years from now.
