From the seller:
NEW 2006 Yamaha Limited Edition R1

This bike has a true 0.0 Miles on it and is in pristine condition. It is ready to go into a collection or be ridden as it sits. Clean CA Title in hand and currently registered on non-op.

This bike cost almost $20K new and is in factory showroom condition.

All manuals, keys, riding and collector tool kits are included.

Key Features:
The R1 LE is a special, limited-edition version of our awe-inspiring liter-bike—packed with premium components in addition to the standard tremendous firepower of the R1.

Öhlins suspension units front and rear, custom-developed for the R1 LE by the same people who work on the YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, provide the ultimate ride and handling.

Custom, YZR-M1-style forged aluminum Marchesini wheels designed specifically for the LE add style while removing nearly a pound of unsprung weight.

Back torque-limiting slipper clutch greatly aids downshifting from speed, helping the rider exploit all the R1 LE’s tremendous braking power.

New for 2006:
Special 50th Anniversary Yellow/Black paint with a numbered serial plate and gold Marchesini wheels; only 500 of these machines will be produced.

GP tech trickles down: Revised rigidity of the main frame between the engine mounts and steering head, a new, more rigid lower triple clamp and a 20mm longer swingarm produce the best-handling R1 ever.

Öhlins 43mm front fork and rear shock, fully adjustable, with hydraulic preload adjuster at the rear, provide ultimate handling on the track and the street.

Slipper clutch for smooth downshifts; revised clutch boss for increased oil flow.
Shorter valve guides increase intake flow and reduce friction, for more power.

Adjustable rear-shock linkage allows 10mm of ride height adjustability; the longer swingarm accepts a greater range of rear tire sizes.

Integrated lap timer switch on the right handlebar for track days.

Gold drive chain, gold M1-style tuning fork fuel tank badge, define this special R1 as a production racer.

Short-stroke 998cc, DOHC, 20-valve, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine.

Dual-valve fuel injection system uses motor-driven secondary throttle valves and 32-bit ECU for super-responsive, instantaneous power delivery.

Two-piece ergonomically designed fuel tank carries fuel in the rear section, for good centralization of mass, while the front half contains a Ram-Air-fed airbox for increased power.

Lay-down design cylinder head – 40° forward – optimizes weight distribution, straightens intake tracts for improved cylinder filling, and allows frame to pass over instead of around the engine for great strength and a narrow chassis.

Closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big, 77mm bores.

Narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers produce a highly efficient 12.4:1 compression ratio. Big valves and high-lift cams flow plenty of air.

Carburized connecting rods with fractured big ends produce a quick-revving engine with excellent high-rpm durability.

High silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder sleeves ensure great heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.

Titanium underseat exhaust system (except for stainless steel midpipe with catalyst) contains a titanium EXUP valve for a broad, seamless powerband.

High-efficiency curved radiator and an aluminum liquid cooled oil cooler maintain stable operating temperature.

Direct ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and highoutput magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.

AC generator behind cylinder block produces a narrow engine with excellent cornering clearance.

Overall frame width of only 15.6 inches produces comfortable ergonomics as well as efficient aerodynamic penetration.

Controlled Fill die cast, truss-type swingarm is very strong and long, for optimal traction and feedback.

Controlled Fill die cast, detachable aluminum subframe is light, strong and allows easy rear shock access.

Dual 320mm front disc brakes; light/strong, forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and Brembo radial-pump front master cylinder with adjustable lever delivers amazing braking power and controllability.

Fully adjustable Öhlins inverted telescopic front fork settings were carefully developed by MotoGP Championship-winning technicians to provide track-tuned handling.

Fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock was also developed by MotoGP technicians, and includes a super-convenient hydraulic preload adjuster.

Additional Features:
Two multi-reflector and two projector beam headlights provide great illumination and distinctive style.

Adjustable LCD illumination and multi-function digital gauges: adjustable shift light, odometer, dual tripmeters, water temperature, air temperature, full-time clock, lap timer and large 15,000 rpm analog tachometer.

Aggressive bodywork with twin Ram-Air intakes for increased engine performance.

LED taillight is light, bright and highly efficient.

Sticky 120/70-ZR17 and 190/50-ZR17 Pirelli tires for incredible grip and precise handling.

Forged footpegs are extra durable and light.

Extensive use of hollow bolts and lightweight fasteners helps trim overall weight.

8.2 AH battery is compact and light.

Durable #530 O-ring–sealed drive chain.

Standard toolkit located in convenient storage compartment under passenger seat.

Since there were no additional pictures of this bike, I did a quick search on YouTube and found this great walkaround with commentary on bike #411:

The seller is looking for $13,750 OBO for this bike (#385). It is rare to find a zero mile bike this many years in, and the limited edition nature of this commemorative R1 helps ensure exclusivity. The price is right in line with others that we have posted, and the general concensus is that the value of these bikes will rise over time.

If you are wondering how many of the 500 bikes produced were kept in zero mile condition, you can bet it is not many. RSBFS has posted quite a few of these LE bikes, and the only one that compares to this one is the LE that was offered still new in the crate!

’05 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Limited Edition

Location: Austin, Texas

Mileage: 11,110

Price: Auction, $8,900 BIN

We see a few of these here on RSBFS from time to time and BMW isn't really known for its sport bike dominance. That changed with the S1000RR, a bike that stormed onto the scene, took top honors all over and is now going to be a a part of the CRT teams in MotoGP. And the Boxer Cup replica is a great looking bike with tons of trick parts. A little different than most machines with the horizontally opposed twin motor, its maybe not for everyone, but very right for a few.

Lots of good detail from the seller-

This is a limited production bike, it is stock except that it has a sargent seat, which is lower than the origional, it has handlebar risers which between the two make for a more comfortable riding position, more upright not bent over like a pretzel . It has a dark tinted windscreen which looks better. All the originals, seat, windscreen  are included in sale and handlebar riser can be returned to origional position. It has very few rock chips which can be seen in the picture of the engine cover. Over all it looks like new,  no dents no scratches no damage. It runs great.      I have had many bikes and this is by far the best handling, smoothest, best looking around. After a 20 year layoff from riding  I bought the best bike I could find but I dont enjoy ridding like I used to. Too many people texting, talking on cell phones, I cant enjoy the ride.  You will find this bike to be like new. I have a new battery and a battery maintainer with the sale. This bike gets all the looks everywhere it goes..   Happy ridding.

The details about the model are listed above by the seller. There have been a few mods that the seller highlights, including the aftermarket seat and handlebar risers.  The original parts are included for all of you who want to put it back to stock. That's always a bonus in my book. Mileage is low for most bikes and particularly a BMW. You should have many more years of ride time on this bike.

Seller is asking asking $8,900 BIN which seems like a lot of bike for the money. Just look at all the carbon fiber bits. And the build quality is outstanding.

If you dig something a little different, but still awesome, make the jump!

2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition #226 of 500 For Sale

2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition #226 of 500

Location: Deptford, NJ
Mileage: 0/1
Price: $9,999.00 current bid or $15,499.00 B.I.N.

As recently as Thursday I had two conversations about this very model with my buddies Steve and Glenn; both having recently purchased this model.

My feelings about this bike are the same now as they were in 2006 in that these will suffer the same fate as other Homologation Sportbikes. They will go way down in price only to shoot back up as time passes. I personally would love to have one of these and like all of my other stuff I'd be the proud owner (for a few months) and would take great care of it.

I'm sure there are many folks, just like myself, who appreciates a well taken care of motorcycle. In this particular case there's no need to worry because it has 0 miles and has only been looked at for the better part of 5 years now.

This one has all the parts to be a true collector-
-low miles
-being sold as new, but no factory warranty which means it was sold and titled
-snazzy tool kit
-original everything

Since these are only in their collectible infancy it's too early to say for sure, but I'm going to assume that since these have painted or anodized everything they will age very well if kept out of the sun. We've all seen way too many 80's/90's collectibles that have corrosion or discolored aluminum bits.

The R1 LE's came from the factory with plenty of trick bits such as a slipper clutch, gold Marchesini's, Ohlins forks, Ohlins shock, adjustable ride height, Titanium exhausts and upgraded Pirelli rubber.

This one is sitting close to the original MSRP of $18,000 so I'm assuming it won't sell, at that price, this early in the game. And if it does sell it will take a long, long time for the buyer to get a return on investment.

So, if you're in the market and have a lot of time to kill you can

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition #220 Of 500 With 425 Miles In New York

This R1, Limited Edition, shows only 425 miles and an asking price of only $10,995.  Located in Brooklyn, New York is a 2006 YZF-R1 Limited Edition #200 of 500 with 425 original miles.  This bike isn't completely stock as it features CRG gold levers, Scott's damper, Vortex no-cut frame sliders, Double Bubble dark smoke windscreen, fender eliminator and flush mount turn signals.  We've seen a few of these in the sub-1k mile club and this one has been the cheapest, I would say as a reflection of the modifications but, I'd doubt it.  This one is priced at $10,995.  You can see the other LE's we've posted here.  It doesn't have super cheap additions but, at this mileage, the somewhat detract from a completely stock bike.  These were special limited edition, homologation, bikes featuring Marchesini wheels, Ohlins suspension, frame changes, longer swingarm, slipper clutch and some other bits; see the period review here.  If you'd be interested in a slightly modified R1 LE with little miles or, a low mile R1 with enough aftermarket bits to pay for returning it back to stock, see this bike on Craigslist here.

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition With Less Than 100 Original Miles

This is another R1 Limited Edition with insanely low miles!  Located in Mission Viejo, California is a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition with less than 100 original miles.  For condition the seller states "Never been washed or exposed to the sun. It's been under a cover in my garage since new."  That's a bit of an embellishment as it is in the sun for the pictures but that's nit-picking!  I don't doubt this bike is in fantastic condition as it has only had to fend off lawn mowers and old furniture in it's short life.  The asking price is $13,500.  The price is high but it isn't completely outrageous as the other LE's we've seen were listed for $11,995 and $12,995 respectively.  These bikes are amazing performers and come outfitted from the factory better than any other production R1 that we've seen in the U.S.  See this shining example on Craigslist here.

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition With 815 Original Miles

This is a close to showroom new '06 R1 LE!  Located in Tucson, Arizona is a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition with 815 original miles.  This bike has had a full inspection and was declared to be in perfect mechanical and cosmetic condition.  Now, Yamaha released the 50th anniversary R1's at the same time as these Limited's were released which can cause an initial doubt as they are two very different bikes but the plastics are almost exactly the same.  The Limited Edition features Ohlins fully adjustable suspension front & rear, ride height adjustment, Marchesini wheels, slipper clutch and the uprated power of the standard 2006 model.  The LE was produced to homologate the R1 for WSB competition and actually came in a Gun Smoke for markets other than N.A with only 500 total being produced.  To understand the visual differences between the LE and 50th, you must look to the front suspension which has silver stanchions for the LE and black for the 50th; the most obvious visual change is the addition of the gold, multi-spoke, Marchesini wheels fitted to the LE.  The 50th is fitted with standard black wheels.  If you're buying, the two have very different prices also:  The LE is, currently, hovering above $10k, in the 11-12.5k range while the 50th is down to the 5-7k depending on miles and accessories.  We posted a LE that was still in the crate that had an asking price of $12,995 which can be seen here.  While at a dealer, this current example has an asking price of $11,995 making each of those miles it has accumulated cost just over a dollar with exclusion of maintenance costs.  While it may be more beneficial for the owner of the 5oth to have the same paint scheme, if you own a LE you know that you've got something very special and that is all that matters.  If you'd like a modern day homologation Yamaha, see this bike on Craigslist here--and yes, this is more special than the 2010 Rossi replica.
