2006 Bimota SB8K Santamonica
Daytona Beach, Florida
B.I.N. $15,000.00 SOLD! for $14,000.00 B.I.N.
Rare, check, Exotic, check, SPORTbike, check – yeah I think this gem from Bimota has it covered. There’s not much I can offer technically that hasn’t been said before (see past SB8 listings here) about this bike, but let me try to offer the highlights. This Bimota has a Suzuki TL1000R motor for propulsion and the usual Rimini goodies adorn the rest of the bike; aluminum frame, lots of carbon fiber, ohlins fork, shock and damper, OZ wheels, Brembo brakes – you get the idea.
This bike has a reliable motor from Japan, exotic styling from Italy and today you can add relative affordability to its list of attributes. Check out the CNC ridges on the triple clamps – awesome stuff! This particular version served primarily as an interior ornament for the owner while his main steed is a SB8R. The full listing for your review:
For sale is nearly new Bimota SB8K “santamonica”. If you are reading this listing then I don’t need to tell you about the history of bimota as a marque or this model in particular. It is showroom quality with only 600 miles on it. It is my 27th bimota bike over the years. I purchased it for show and tell only and as evident by lack of mileage she has been in my living room as a beautiful work of art. She is trickle charged and periodically started and ridden but my daily driver is her older relative a bimota SB8R. The time has come to thin out the herd a bit and I need more room so this wonderful machine is being offered for sale. Bimota USA MSRP was over 40k. She is now being offered at a mere fraction of that cost. She is sure to appreciate in value over the years. Email if you have any questions. Thanks for the interest and Happy Holidays.
I feel like the bike is solid when my biggest complaint is the LED tach. The only exception I take with the listing is the seller’s assertion that this bike is “sure to appreciate over the years.” The B.I.N. seems totally reasonable, especially considering the low miles and top condition. and make sure he throws in the bike stand and cover for your 15 large!
