Featured Listing – 2001 Ducati MH900e #413

The singular MH900e has made regular appearances here at RSBFS, the Terblanche design and sparkling execution combined for a quick sell-out of the run of 2,000. This collector has been nicely personalized with an unusual eye toward usability.

2001 Ducati MH900e #413 for sale on eBay

The red and polish MH900e has such a distinctive design that discussion of its specs is secondary, but the fuel injected desmodue pulls its weight.  The air-cooled 904cc is tuned for 75 hp and a wider torque band, making the long, low piece of art more rideable.  Outdoing their usual trellis fretwork, Ducati made the chassis show off the engine and its systems.  Beside being a fabricator's showcase, the sculpted single-sided swingarm works well with the Paioli reservoir shock and eases rear wheel cleaning.  The fairing / tank combination flows, and the separate exhausts wind their way out to the long underseat mufflers.

The owner of this MH900e wanted to ride it more than most, and his modifications are good-looking and practical.  Foremost, a neat mod replaces the battery / tank internals and  increases fuel capacity to a realistic 4.6 gallons.  Updates to the levers and belt covers are well chosen, and the stainless exhaust looks great compared to the factory black.  More detail from the eBay auction:

Super, super clean, with tasteful upgrades, runs with no issues, sounds awesome, and is not a garage queen, but actually ridden, yet lives in my living room most of the time. I'm moving, and no room for several bikes, so here's your chance.

Rizoma cam belt covers, Rizoma Urlo grips and levers, now Brembo master cylinders, fresh oils and Pro-One billet finned oil cooler/filter, California Cycleworks tank/battery conversion which increases fuel tank capacity almost twice as much and rids the ugly and heavy dual battery. Has Lithium single battery, open pod filters, high voltage Dyna ignition, belly pan eliminator (have original), fully polished and chromed stainless exhaust is a beauty, yet not loud and great sound. Luimoto cross stiched suede seat cover, good tires, 3D show chain, etc.

Ducati made the low volume special work well enough to impress reviewers, though long ergonomics and compromised dash and mirrors reinforced its showy roots.  While it looks too cool for most owners to let it outside, this one has amassed enough miles for an oil change, but not so many that the next owner couldn't bring it into the hall.  Bidding on the auction is quite active and there is a reasonable buy-it-now of $22,000.

At the other end of the spectrum, the owner also has a fully restored 1938 BMW R66 on offer - here -.  Questions about either machine can be addressed through the eBay auctions...

Fun at Any Speed – 2008 Ducati Monster S4RS Tricolore 101/400

A one-year wonder, the numbered edition S4RS Tricolore put some pizazz in the 2008 Monster line-up.  The heavily oversquare testastretta engine brings 130 hp to the party, up at 9,500 rpm.  Well-finished despite being naked, the 998cc V-twin also has components on the superbike level.

2008 Ducati Monster S4RS 101/400 for sale on eBay



The 998's narrowhead engine is thoroughly modern, Marelli fuel-injected and water-cooled with an auxiliary oil cooler.  Once identified, the different plumbing loops for intake, exhaust, water, oil ( and even fuel vapor ) make sense.  The special Tricolore livery contrasts nicely with the golds of the trellis frame, Ohlins and Marchesini components, and the carbon accents on the radiators, fenders, and side covers.  Stacked exhaust and half-tube mufflers are sweet, but reviews warn of a toasty right heel.

Hard to say how this special Duc found itself with under 2,000 miles, but likely it was a trade-in at the West Palm specialty auto dealer who listed it.  Still has the rarely seen evaporative emissions system on board.  From the eBay auction:

This is a super rare 2008 Ducati Monster S4RS Tricolore model with just 1171 miles!  This is the lowest mile S4RS out there that is collector quality !  This was meticulously maintained and cared for.  This bike has never been down with no marks on it.  It is a collector bike and only going up in value!  It is fitted with Michelin Pilot Power tires that are like new!   We have all original books and keys for this bike.  The handgrips and the catalytic converter have been removed.  Other than that 100% original !  Bike is absolutely amazing !!!

Like new or not, the calendar says belts and tires will need a careful inspection before grabbing a big handful of throttle on this S4RS.  But it's a desirable model since the Tricolores are only an occasional special, and the condition is spectacular.  The bikini fairing provides enough protection for a quick run at the ton, but Monsters are better in the twisties, maybe a fall day on the tail of the dragon - something like that, yeah...

Tribute – 2007 MV Agusta F4 1000R Senna

As a motorcycle executive, Claudio Castiglioni had the ability to put together a fitting tribute to his friend ( and MV collector ) Ayrton Senna.  Proceeds from the limited edition supported the Brazilian youth services foundation bearing the late driver's name.  The second F4 numbered edition commemorating Senna, the F4 1000R features 173 hp and state of the art construction and components.

2007 MV Agusta F4 1000R Senna for sale on eBay

Agusta uses the familiar inline four cylinder engine with 16 valves, but hemispherical combustion chambers and radial valve layout deliver extraordinary power for 998cc's.  The latest Weber / Marelli electronic fuel injection insures tractability at sub-sonic speeds.  The MV trademark four-two-four calliope peeks out from under the seat.  Suspension and brake components are race-derived, from the 50mm Marzocchi forks to the lightweight adjustable Sachs monoshock, to the Brembo monoblock Serie Oro brakes.  Forged Marchesini alloys are directly from the GP department.

Presented by a Florida luxury vehicle dealer, this Senna has just 1,544 miles and is pictured on the factory carpet and rear stand, though a shot of the number plate would be helpful.  For all intents a new machine, closer than usual to 2017 new considering how advanced the 1000R was to begin with.  The dealer says this in the eBay auction:

This bike is one of just 65 SENNAs imported into the U.S. from Italy.  300 models were made and distributed worldwide, this bike has ONLY 1,544 ORIGINAL miles, has always been well maintained, adult-owned, never dropped.  It is in excellent condition.  I have the original Senna bike cover and wheel stand as show in the pictures.  The F4 1000 Senna is a special edition of the F4 1000 R released in 2006. It is similar to the 2002 F4 750 Senna in spirit, but has some changes to the paint scheme and an alcantara seat. This model comes with the 174 horsepower (128 kW) engine and has also the upgraded Brembo Goldline radial brakes, forged silver Marchesini wheels, a 50 mm titanium-nitride coated Marzocchi upside down fork and a lightweight Sachs racing rear suspension (in high & low speed range adjustable rebound and compression damping). Only 300 were produced.

Looking reserved in black, silver, and gray with red accents and alcantara seat, the Senna is an elegant statement.  Performance, materials, and techniques are in a three-way competition.  A gorgeous engineering exercise, and a fitting special edition recalling the unparalleled driver.  Little doubt it will remain with few miles, serviced and detailed more than ridden, but nice to know that if called upon, the Senna could respond...

Featured Listing – 2005 MV Agusta F4 1000 Tamburini #192

Massimo Tamburini was a founder of Bimota, head of design at Cagiva, and designer of the legendary Ducati 916. The Castiglioni brothers commemorated Tamburini in 2005 with a special edition of the F4 1000. The very leading edge machine had variable-length intake runners, single-sided magnesium swingarm, and full carbon bodywork. The numbered edition of 300 packs a 173 hp wallop and shows how things could be done in billet and carbon.

Onboard the technology showcase, MV Agusta's Torque Shift System moved the intake horns to provide better low rpm response, in the style of Formula 1 cars of the era. Frame connectors are magnesium alloy and brakes are 6-piston Nissins. The company's Engine Brake System adds a bit of air and fuel to the intake on over-run, smoothing downshifts.

As though just 2,500 km and museum-quality storage wasn't enough, the owner claims the most original as-delivered set of artifacts and collectibles to be found. Hard to disagree, with a list like this:

In addition to the great state of vehicle ( exactly equal to new ) is probably the only complete F4 Tamburini that was delivered at the time of purchase:

This amount includes:
1) Delivery box (delivery of MV Agusta motorcycles to dealer)
2) Limited edition plate
3) Official MV Agusta stand/easel
4) Double keys
5) Handbook
6) Double booklet coupons
7) Original advertising for the SENNA model, that was delivered to all the Tamburini buyers
8) MV Agusta Corse  accessories book delivered with the purchase of the bike
10) Original Purchase invoice
11) MV Agusta official show rug
12) Double exhaust race and road legal...

Consider an MV Agusta and you open yourself to three or four times the cost of a comparable production sportbike.  But the engineers have been paid, the exotic materials purchased, the shops organized around a short run of special bikes.  Agusta trademarks like the 4-2-4 exhaust and winged fuel tank are accompanied by new techniques, materials, and electronics.  Fittingly pictured in a sculpture garden, it's hard to say the Tamburini's original owners didn't get their money's worth.  At the ask of €34,000, it looks ready for the next event.  The bike is in Italy and interested parties can contact Riccardo: zagostyle@hotmail.it

2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Le Mans Tenni with 1,204 miles !

Commemorating Omobono Tenni, a Guzzi racer who gave the factory many victories in the 1933-48 era ( and died in a crash during GP practice ), the Le Mans Tenni is a brilliant and subtle styling exercise using the recent V11 base.  This Tenni is badged number 114 of 170, and has been preserved with only first-oil-change miles.

2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Le Mans #114/170

Helped by Aprilia's development lire, the V11 used the venerable air-cooled V-twin which reported 91 hp and nearly 70 ft.-lbs. torque.  Signature shaft drive is helped by a torque arm, and Marelli fuel injection makes starting and running easy.  Top components from Öhlins and Brembo, and improvements like the hydraulic clutch and oil cooler bring the big machine into the 21st century.

Owned by an Illinois collector, this Tenni is dead stock and almost unused.  The suede seat was a fair-weather option and a vinyl seat is also included.  Just a few dings on the seat fairing detract, but should correctable.  From the eBay auction:

Original owner of a rare, low mileage, unmolested Moto Guzzi LeMans Tenni, number 114 of 170 worldwide.  I purchased this motorcycle new in December 2003 from Motorsports Inc. in Wichita, KS.  I have kept the bike in a climate controlled space, and have not performed any alterations whatsoever to the engine or body.  Periodic cleaning, oil changes, and engine starting, with a occasional ride around the block!  Hence the very low miles.  Bike comes with an original Tenni sales brochure, owners manual, shop manual, parts manual, two keys, tool kit, MG bike cover, extra gasket set, and two seats (black vinyl and brown suede).

With weight approaching 550 lbs. wet, the V11 quickly becomes a lot of work to push quickly.  More suited to less twisty bits, the rock solid handling inspires confidence, and great torque makes for a fun ride.  The V11 has a mature powertrain, and the Tenni has premium appointments and an attractive take on racing green.  For a Guzzi fan, it's a very low-mile example, 1 of 170 total of a single-year commemorative, with the late Le Mans half fairing, a modern and nice-riding machine to boot...

Mark 1 – 1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Replica #275 of 500

The fact that it's offered by a SoCal preparation shop specializing in Suzuki might be a reminder that the Aprilia RS250 used the 249cc two-stroke twin from the RGV250.  As enhanced by Aprilia's intake, top end, and exhaust, the RS250 had power that put 4-strokes with triple the displacement to shame.   This first-year race replica has low miles, excellent cosmetics except for one faux pas, and a newly rebuilt engine.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Replica #275 for sale on eBay

Commemorating Aprilia veteran Loris Reggiani but capitalizing on Max Biaggi's string of MotoGP championships, the RS250 brought GP technology to the showroom floor with the sculpted aluminum-magnesium alloy frame and swingarm, and carbon fiber seat subframe.  Bigger-bike Marzocchi suspension and Brembo brakes alert you to the possible speeds.  The full fairing is sleek and completed by details like factory billet rearsets.

 

Another victim of too many bikes / too little time, this RS250 has under 6,000 miles and looks great except for the right seat fairing, which might be remedied with a decal kit.  Not sure it's the best thing on a low mile machine, but the fresh engine rebuild will require break-in and tuning, as the owner states in the eBay auction:

But probably the BEST THING about this bike is that it just had a full rebuild - crank, carbs rebuilt, pistons (rgv) new seal kit. Easy said and done over the internet  but i have photo's to prove.
The bike is supplied with full jollymoto pipes, but oem ones are included (seat,rear passenger brackets )
Owners books (both keys) and original loris poster with sales advertisement's
Bike does start but will need to be run in and maybe slightly tuned once its run in.

 

The small print for the RS250 included a powerband that doesn't begin until 8,000 rpm, so there might be a learning curve there.  Ready to ride at 350 lbs., handling is sharp and the brakes are world-class.  Aprilia's meticulous fabrication make the RS250, especially in the race replica, an exciting find...
