2001 Honda CBR929RR Erion Racing Edition with 525 Miles !

Credit where due, Honda presented an Erion Edition after the race team won back to back AMA Formula Xtreme 600cc Championships in 1999-2000.  Thinking way out over the horizon, this Fort Meyers owner parked this CBR after just a few fill-ups, and it’s ready for the next display opportunity.

2001 Honda CBR929RR Erion Racing Edition for sale on eBay

 

 

 

 

With its third engine change since the FireBlade was introduced, the 929 was even more overquare, fuel injected, and boasting 152 hp at almost 11,000 rpm.  The all-titanium exhaust included Honda’s volume tailoring HTEV system, stretching the torque band.  New for 2001 were USD forks, and a longer swingarm, smoothing out the handling under  power.  A new 17-inch front wheel fit into the revised fairing, which reviewed as a bit less exciting than its rivals.  Though growing from the original 900, every opportunity was taken to keep weight under control, and inch it toward the middle of the machine.

Though a twenty year old superbike priced at a hair less than a brand new one might only be for a superfan, the owner seems to have kept this one beautifully.  With little history to tell or worry much about, the comments are as bold as the graphics in the eBay auction:

Erion had some great years with many bold faced names aboard, like Nicky Hayden and Ben Bostrom.  Not sure if the Erion edition was anything more than a graphic exercise, but the 929 needed a little extra help in the showroom during the R1’s run for glory.  Looking forward to this seller’s other auctions if they are all as nice as this.

  • 14 grand??? That’s an expensive graphics package!

  • Cool and sad at the same time. Obviously it is very rare to find a 20 year old bike with such low miles. Sad that the bike has never been enjoyed on the road. I have a couple 900rr’s, and they love to be ridden. With that said, I sure would love to have this bike in my collection.

  • Sold !!!

  • With the other ridiculous prices out there for even non collectible bikes, I have to say that this one could be worth it.

    first the 929RR really is an awesome bike and have aged well. They are well made and I actually prefer riding the 929 over my same era R1s. They haven’t skyrocketed in value and demand like the RC51 these days but way easier to ride on the street. Certainly not as much “character” as the 51, but its far more enjoyable on a daily basis.

    I searched MONTHS to find a clean, all original, lowish miles CBR 929RR. Since Honda sold a reasonable amount of these, I thought they would be easy to find, but most have been stunted and abused if they are even out there at all. Finally found an all original (including the rear fender, windshield, turn signals and even the warning label on the tank) with 12k miles on it for $5k. Got him down a bit since there was a small dent in the tank that i plan to fix. But you really cannot find clean standard 929s out there these days, let alone the even more rare Erion Edition. And with 500 miles and even the original scotchbrite cleaning pad this bike really is a unicorn. If I had the money I would certainly add it to my collection and keep my ’01 red/ black as my rider.

  • A best offer was accepted. Too bad there is no way these days to find out what that best offer was. Every method I’ve used in the past has been figured out by ebay and no longer work. It sure would be interesting to see what it actually sold for.

  • His next bike is now for sale. 1989 zx7 under 5k miles.
