Pinnacle – 2007 Honda CBR1000RR Nicky Hayden Edition

Celebrating Nicky Hayden's 2006 Moto GP Championship, the Repsol-liveried CBR1000RR was also its own high point in liter-bike performance. This very clean example has just a few updates, and new rubber.

2007 Honda CBR1000RR Nicky Hayden Edition for sale on eBay

Coming out of the American flat track scene and making his way to an AMA championship in 2002, Nicky Hayden arrived at the big Moto GP show and rode for Honda 2003-08.  Hayden helped develop the RC211V, and many of the innovations made their way to the CBR1000RR.  The engine architecture was new, with the transmission countershaft more above than behind the main shaft, shortening the engine and allowing a more compact package.  A die-cast alloy frame was used, with an electronic steering damper, and the fuel tank was more centrally located behind the tank cover.  The long swingarm leads to a more stable feel despite the whopping 172 hp.  The fairing and seat console are busy aerodynamically and the complex Repsol graphics package keeps up.


Apparently babied by its Tennessee owner, this CBR has just a few scuffs, but Galfer brake lines, Corbin seat, and GPR exhaust.  Though not well pictured, the signal lights have been re-done in LED, and the license plate tucked away.  From the eBay auction:

Rare Nicky Hayden Edition Repsol in great condition. 3 minor scuffs on bike, included in pictures. Added Galfer front and rear brake lines, Corbin seat, G.P.R. exhaust, oem rear seat cowl (Repsol blue), integrated brake light with signals along with led flush mount front signals, led license plate mount (under seat), and new Michelin Pilot tires. Bike also comes with both original seats (excellent condition) along with all other parts that have been replaced with upgraded parts. Bike is clean and ready to go.


Making the most of his share of good luck, the Kentucky Kid reached the summit in the 2006 championship, and the bike has several #1 decals.  A local boy's signature under the Moto GP wreath makes this a rare and desirable machine, almost as much of an attraction as the high tech and exquisite production of the steady-handling superbike.  All the better with the succession of tough breaks that followed.  A singular team effort from the manufacturer, racing team, and rider made this a special year for the big CBR...

1999 Honda CBR900RR Nicky Hayden Formula Xtreme for sale

Here's an opportunity to own an amazing racebike that once was once piloted by MotoGP rider Nicky Hayden early in his career. The intent of Formula Xtreme was to allow as many types of motorcycles to compete, anything from inline-fours to air-cooled V-twins. Formula Xtreme racing was one of the more competitive and entertaining races of an AMA weekend. The seller has a contact number for Kevin Erion which should help with the specifics on this bike.

2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden with less than 2000 Miles!

Update 7.18.2013: This bike had sold but the owner has informed us the sale fell through. Links updated. -dc

2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden For Sale

Located in South Carolina is this barely used Nicky Hayden edition RC51 with just 1877 miles. While this special edition only gets cosmetic upgrades (polished frame and swingarm, white number plates, sticker kit, and affixed with Nicky's signature) it is arguably much better looking than the standard issue. If you missed one when they were new this is your second chance. Current bid is $3000 reserve not met (obviously) and the buy-it-now shows nearly $9k.

Comes with a brand new, unopened, uninstalled "sticker kit". With rear seat and owner's manual still in plastic.

Minty Nicky Hayden 04′ RC51 for Christmas!

Location: Thomasville, GA    Mileage: 1,877     Price: $9,800 BIN

The RC51 is a well known Honda V-twin that is the last in the evolution of the RC line made famous by the introduction of the RC30. Granted the RC30 and RC45 have quite a bit more appeal to many buyers than the RC51, it doesn't mean it should be dismissed. Honda doesn't build anything like it now, so if you want something other than a Ducati in the twin department, you don't have many options. Throw in Nicky Hayden (last American to win a MotoGP championship) and limited production, it gets even better.

Here's the seller's words-

I have a Mint Condition 2004 Nicky Hayden RC51. It does not have a scratch on it and has been garage kept, completly covered and on jack stands except for the few miles it has been ridden. It is all original including tires and will be a Nicky fans dream bike. The bike is in showroom condition. It is located in Thomasville, GA 31792 for shipping info. Feel free to call with any questions.

And photos-

This bike is super low mileage and looks like an all original machine. Sure, it's a 2004 bike so it's not all that old but the production is limited. And while these bikes are certainly out there, one with this kind of mileage and condition will only get more difficult to find.

If you have wanted the Nicky RC51 and are particularly interested in something that can go into a collection, this is a bike worth considering. The seller is asking a chunk of cash for this bike, so you'll have to figure where you're comfortable and maybe you can work a deal. To make a play on this bike, go place a bid!

Low Mileage Nicky Hayden Ducati 848

Location: Modesto, California

Mileage: A whopping 188

Price: $14,000 BIN

Not sure how much we need to discuss Nicky Hayden here. Good old American MotoGp racer from Kentucky who happened to pull a world title in 2006. Of course he did that on a Repsol Honda. Since, Nicky moved to Ducati and hasn't had the same success. Neither has Valentino for that matter. But in honor of his being at Ducati, they put out the limited production Nicky Hayden edition seen here. Who knows if they'll drop a Rossi edition on us. Hope so.

Here's the info from the seller-

CONDITION: Vehicle is in immaculate condition. With only 188 actual miles this motorcycle has stayed covered in a garage ever since it was purchased new from the dealer in february 2010. The motorcycle has never seen rain and has no dents or scratches. Bike is started about every two weeks and stays plugged into a battery tender to the factory installed lead. The bike is still under factory warranty! ALL OFFERS WITHIN LOGIC WILL BE CONSIDERED

FEATURES: The bike is completely stock as it came from the factory. Absolutely no work, tuning, modifications, or replacing of any parts has been performed. This is an original limited edition, autographed Nicky Hayden 848, ONLY 150 BIKES EVER MADE! All dealer information, original paperwork, two keys, battery tender and bike cover come with the sale. This is as close to a brand new bike as it gets without paying full sticker price. Save money and avoiding paying sales tax from a dealer.

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY: Buyer is responsible for shipping costs and delivery fees. However, I have a truck and will transport near the west coast free of charge depending on location. I am pretty open to that agreement so contact me for details.

And more photos-

So this appears to be one clean, original, no excuses bike. Not much more to say than that. The bike is limited with only 150 being built. It has the obvious special paint scheme and Nicky signature on the tank. Otherwise, it's your standard Duc 848. This one also has extremely low mileage, so if your interested, here's a chance to own an original Hayden edition that hasn't even been broken in. The seller also includes all the extras and paperwork that came with the bike. Important if you are really looking to collect this bike.

The seller is offering the bike for $14,000 BIN and is also accepting offers. MSRP was $14,500 so maybe you can pick it up for a little less and get an essentially new bike and save some dough. If you're a Nicky and Ducati fan, then take advantage of this opportunity and check the auction out.

Zero Mile ’01 Honda RC51 RVT

Location: Moose Jaw, Canada

Mileage: Zero (0), nada, goose egg

Price: Auction, $12,999 BIN

The RC51 is the end of a celebrated line of race bikes out of Honda. The RC30 and RC45 are well known here and represent the greatest of Honda homologated bikes. The RC51 hasn't reached that status. Yet. The racing history is there with Colin Edwards riding it and Nicky Hayden's AMA Superbike title on it. Built as a Ducati beater, the bike is also unlike anything Honda builds today. You want big V-twin sound and power and Honda reliability and build quality? Well, this is your bike.

This one is also a little more special because it's brand new. Zero miles. Here's what the seller has to say-

Yes, this is a brand new 2001 Honda RC51.  This is not a demo and has never been sold!

Why is this unsold you may ask?  Mostly, the part of Canada that our dealership is located has a low population density.  Also, originally there was a retail based incentive program that has long since expired.

We bought this back in 2003.  This price is below our original cost.  Originally this bike's MSRP was  $15,999. There is a 1 year factory warranty that is only available in Canada.

Bike is uncrated and has been in our showroom since then.  Crating and shipping would be at an extra cost.

Shipping, brokers, taxes or duties are all the responsibility of the buyer.

This is a rare chance to purchase a new bike that is destined for super bike status.

Rear seat cowl is also available at extra cost.

Call to discuss this bike in person.

For more info check out or web page

This bike if for sale locally and could end at any time.

And some more pics-

So there's really not too much to discuss here except the price. Most RC51's go around the $6k to $8k mark, including the Nicky Hayden replicas. However, virtually none of them are brand new bikes from 2001 with no mileage. So you will have to take that into consideration. Pricing on stuff like this is difficult and depends on the market. At $12,999, this will cost you more now than when it was new. What I don't think is difficult is the future collectibility of the bike. The RC51 has all the history you'll need to maintain value and be desirable into the future.

So there you have it. If it's time to start that collection or complete it, then take a look and place your bid!
