Italian Charm: 1999 Bimota DB4

Bimotas are not exactly known for their scary antics and cartoonish horsepower. They are instead renowned for being rolling exhibitions in balance, handling and craft mastery. The brand has had it share of screamers -- the 1100cc SB6R and the Suzuki TL-1000R-powered SB8 come to mind -- but it isn't their stock and trade.

1999 Bimota DB4 for sale on eBay

This 1999 Bimota DB4 is right in the brand's wheelhouse: a pretty, handmade frame, boutique suspension pieces and hand-laid bodywork wrapping a character-rich and adequately powerful engine.

Sporting the mill from a 1990s Ducati 900SS, which had its fuel injection jettisoned for a set of carbs, the DB4 claimed a modest 80-odd horses when new. Even with the torque available from the big twin, this thing won't make you a light-to-light hero.

Those ponies, though, must only haul around about 365 pounds, and a fully-adjustable Paioli fork works in concert with an Ohlins shock to allow the bike to carry what speed it can muster with little drama and maximum efficiency.

The low-mileage example here looks to be in excellent condition, albeit with signs of use and a few marks that show its age. The seller notes some changes from stock, but provides little detail.

Featured listing: 2014 Ducati Superleggera in WSBK Spec!

What we have here is the result of a massive checkbook and exclusive access to trick go bits, fueling a habit forming need for speed! Not for the faint of heart or wallet, this 2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale Superleggera has been fully worked over into a World Superbike-level race package for one very lucky and well-heeled enthusiast.

2014 Ducati Superleggera for sale on eBay

As the ad says, this bike sports a Magnesium monocoque frame that is so light it is illegal for use on a WSBK grid. Translation: this bike is too cool even for Chaz Davies. The build kit is as long as War and Peace, but boils down to a few key figures: 209 hp, 346 lb. (wet) and a build cost of more than $220k. That makes the $103k asking price seem a little less steep, doesn't it?

The bike was built last year and developed extensively by Brian Sharp of Boulder Motorsports, Mick Boasman of Bikesport Developments and Pete Friedland. It has won club-level races under Friedland and saw a host of track days last year. It spent the winter getting freshened up for the '17 season.

The build list is too long for us to do it justice, so here it is from the horse's mouth:

Offered for sale is Superleggera #157 of 500.  This particular bike is likely the only true magnesium-monocoque Ducati Superleggera built to a Superbike specification.  Competition only, not street legal.  Boulder Motorsports performed the engine build with an open checkbook.  The rest of the machine was treated the same way and utilizes the very best of everything.   Although ironically illegal for World Superbike rules for being under weight and non-homologated components (Mag frame, etc).  This machine has had countless hours of development time under technical hands of Mick Boasman of Bikesport Developments, Brian Sharp of Boulder Motorsports and Pete Friedland.  Completed in the early spring of 2016, it was brought to Road America on June 11, taking an easy win in Formula Thunder with Friedland on board..  The bike ran at two track days following and at Barber Motorsports Park and Daytona (1 race) in October 2016.  This past winter the bike was gone through and refreshed by Chris Boy & staff at MotoCorse Performance to showroom condition including new paint, tires & services, where it exists now on display.  The engine has only 400+ minutes of total run time on it and the entire machine has been gone through to make sure you are getting a gem of a bike with tons of spares and extra parts.  (Run time is logged via Marelli ECU at different levels of RPM for maintenance purposes).  You will not find another Ducati to this level of specification.  $220,000+ invested.  All invoice documentation will be provided to assist you with identifying part numbers and maintaining the machine.  Let the details below and pictures tell the story.  209 RWHP & 346 lbs wet.  Please contact Pete Friedland at 803-315-8665 if additional questions need to be answered.

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.

2004 Ducati 998S FE With Just 1,164 Miles !

Ducati's own commemorative of 10 years manufacturing the 916-derived superbike, the special order 998 Final Edition had a plaque on the triple-clamp and the new testastretta under the fairings.  This monoposto shows just over 1K miles and is pictured in front of the proverbial barn.

2004 Ducati 998S Final Edition for sale on eBay

Sporting the classic trellis frame and World Champion Superbike graphics on the tailcone, the FE has the powertrain and premium components to back it up.   The nicely oversquare testastretta knocks on silly power's door with 136hp at 10,200 rpm.  The standard Ducati rev counter doesn't show a redline, but many owners label 11,000 rpm with a "$$$" or "Bang!" as repair costs escalate exponentially.  As an -S, the FE should have the deep sump crankcase, though some claim differences between U.S. and Euro S/FE's.  Fully adjustable Öhlins are found front and rear, and Brembo four-piston front brakes and Marchesini alloys complete the picture.

Tucked away somewhere for most of its life, this 998 is a little dusty but unmarked, and appears factory original.  Most owners might have changed at least a couple of the brushed aluminum details to carbon if the bike was handy in their garage or foyer.  Most of the comments in the eBay auction are specifications and advertising, but there's also this -

1 of 112 Ducati 998 Final Edition Monoposto California's made. This bike was only available by special order, it was not available as a regular production model. Quite rare to say the least. I'd imagine this could be, the cleanest, lowest mile one in existence; as I have never seen a lower mileage 2004 998 FE pop up.

Check the pictures, flawless. Radiator is one of the a very reliable bellwether of use or lack there of: it looks almost brand new.  Colorado Title with original owner's name.

Since earth-shattering 999's were being prepared for shipment at the same time, one can imagine the misty eyes as the last few special-order 998's were wheeled out.  The tank decal recalls 8 championships and 115 race wins, a record deserving of a large number 1 in a wreath.  Rarity assured, as a final year edition of a beloved model, and barely used.  With 2-1/2 days to go, bidding is active but reserve is tbd.

Like a virgin: 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 LE with only 6 miles!

For many, the classic Yamaha race livery will always be the bumble bee yellow and black, an iconic combination forever immortalized by King Kenny Roberts. It is a color scheme that has adorned many models - from the TZs and RZ racers of the 1970s to the RDLC and RZ350 editions in the 1980s. It is bold, it makes a statement, and it is quintessential Yamaha. But is there more than just color here?

Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition for sale on eBay

This Limited Edition YZF-R1, built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company, takes a page out of the Ducati playbook: take a good machine, beef it up in minor ways, add a splash of graphics, limit the number of bikes released, and sell each at a premium. The LE model of the R1 is really no different. Take a standard 2006 R1 - itself a very good open class bike. Add upscale Ohlins suspension front and rear, with a trick height adjuster out back (10mm range of motion). Dress it up with some custom Marchesini wheels (pattered after Rossi's MoviStar racer), shod it with super-sticky rubber, and add a slipper clutch for that little bit extra performance. Drape it in race bike livery that really makes it stand out. Anodize everything else to match. Give it an onboard lap timer to really sell the racing theme. Assign each one a number plaque and sell it at a premium. In this case, a $18,000 MSRP.

BRAND NEW Yamaha 50th Anniversary Vintage Gear Bag

Additional Owner’s Manual in Plastic (In addition to original Owner’s Manual under seat)

New Service Manual; Original 2006 Yamaha Sportbike Brochure; and Color Copy of MSO

Additional Gold Drive Chain sealed in Plastic

Original Born with Yuasa YTZ10S Battery plus New YTZ10S Battery purchased on 05.24.17

The trouble with the "limited edition" format is that it has never really worked for the Japanese - apart for ultra-exclusive homologation bikes. Under the covers, this is really just a tarted up R1, of which Yamaha sold by the tens of thousands. With the Limited Edition Anniversary bike, Yamaha restricted output to approximately 500 units in the United States, and about an equal amount spread across the rest of the world.

This particular R1-LE is about as clean a bike as you are likely to see and comes with that looks like a pile of extra stuff. With only 6 miles on the clock (supposedly delivery / dealer prep miles), you are looking at essentially a brand new bike. A brand new bike that is 11 years old, that is. Will this one appreciate in value over time? It is hard to tell with any bike, but a rise in value is not likely to occur in the near term. And if there is a rise in value, it will likely be due to the fact that the bike is still in "as new" condition more so than the fact that it is an Anniversary edition. Still, it is a very cool bike - and one that we should be thankful Yamaha created. Check it out here, and then jump over the Comments and share your thoughts: Worth more for the miles or the LE graphics? Good Luck!!

Ripper: 2008 Yamaha R6 Graves Spec Racebike

Summer is here, and that means track days. For some, simply taping up the headlight, taillight and turn signals is enough for a "run what ya brung" session at their closest track. Others might want a dedicated track bike that dispenses with the tape prep and makes attending a course day easier. Finally there are those that require a track day missile; nothing short of being the fastest A group guy matters. It is to those A Group types that I speak with this one. Read on:

Driven Clip Ons (Custom Raw Aluminum Finish) with Gold Bar ends - $200
Driven Triple Tree (1 off design with raw aluminum finish “unobtanium”) - $300

This bike looks fantastic. The build is very sano, and I'm sure the performance is much more than a simple sum of the parts. And it is the sum of the parts that matters; you can't build this for what you might be able to buy it for. Nothing depreciates like last year's race bike, and the kings ransom spent on the upgrades to this machine are now but a princely sum. It likely will not appreciate. It will not get more rare or specialized; it will just get older. But if used as intended, what you have is a great bike for ripping off laps worthy of the top of the time sheets, while someone else spent the time, effort and money. That could be a good deal. I would love to see more pictures and more detail around how it all went together, but you can check it out here to see if I missed anything. Good luck!!
