1993 Bimota DB2 for sale in San Diego asking for $11,000.
Having posted several Bimota listings, I notice something quite interesting – the older DB2s tend to have a higher asking price than the newer DB4s. I don’t think the DB2 is particularly more desirable / collectible than the DB4, so I find it strange that an older model with very similar components (if not slightly inferior) would demand a higher price. Having said that, I personally like the more “dated” styling of the DB2 and the steel trellis frame (the DB4 has an aluminum trellis frame).
Anyway, here’s another reader tip for a 1993 Bimota DB2 for sale in San Diego:
Original Owner, Sales Documents, Serviced by GP Motorcycles in San Diego, Service Records, Complete Tool Kit, Owners Manual, American Variant with Non DOT Headlamps, Original Tires, 4400 Miles.
Excellent Show Quality Machine with No Mechanical or Cosmetic Needs.
I appreciate the fact that it’s an original owner machine and that it comes with the tool kit and manual. I’m guessing the “American Variant with Non DOT headlamps” means this one has the Euro spec projector beam head light unit. What I am more concerned about are the “original tires” – which means the owner never changed tires during his / her 17 years of ownership?
In any case, this is a clean DB2 with low miles, but the asking price of $11,000 is definitely high in my book. If anyone is interested, I would suggest inspecting the bike in person and try negotiating with the seller for a more reasonable price in the range of around $8000. Oh, and budget for new tires!
By the way, it’s Chinese New Year over here, so happy new year! Wishing everyone safe and happy riding for the new year of the Tiger!
