Again, I know R1s aren’t rare but, the LEs are and this one is still in the crate. Located in Cedar Hills, Oregon is a 2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition in unused condition. To quote the seller:
I have a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition for sale. This is one of only 500 ever produced, and still in the original crate at my warehouse. It’s in pristine condition, has never turned a wheel except maybe after it rolled off the assembly line and into it’s shipping container. This bike sold for $18,000 new, and I purchased it primarily as a collector’s item never intending to use it. A nice display piece for sure, but would be great for weekend rides, or track days for someone who wants one of the best all time sportbikes, unmatched for it’s speed, powerful engine and superb handling. The bike is still in the crate, but I will be happy to assemble and service it for the new owner. I am a career Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki tech. A factory service manual, owner’s manual, and Limited Edition R1 tool kit will be included with purchase.
The asking price is $12,995. So, if you missed the Limited Editions around the first time or you’re a very serious collector, this might be the bike for you. Sorry, no photos. See the Craigslist ad here.
