1988 /1989 Bimota YB7 (with Yamaha FZR400 EXUP engine) for sale on ebay UK.
I’ve been looking out for Bimotas for sale in the US, but there isn’t much out there and most of the ones that are have already been listed here earlier. That’s just a long winded way of saying here’s a :
Original 12,174 klms 7.564 Miles on the clock.
Vin Number YB7-00106
Made for 1988 to 1989
Number 106 out of 321 ever made!!
Starts, runs and rides beautifully!!!
This bike is powered by an FZR400 Exup Yamaha motor, that had 68 hp. It has a 6 speed gearbox and were capable of 134 Miles per hour.
This is a RARE opportunity to own a very collectible bike at an affordable price.
This bike would also make an awesome “period 6″ pre 1990 classic race bike.
Yes, you read it right – it has a Yamaha FZR400 EXUP engine in it. Incidentally, and interestingly so, Japan was and still is one of biggest markets for Bimotas. Japan has different engine displacement classes, and the 400cc is the great divide.
400cc variants are rarely seen outside the domestic Japanese market, which does make this quite rare.
Its have lots of work done on it all new Brembo Brake pads, oil oil filter, new battery, it has some fairing damage.
The seller lists this as a 1992 model, but he/she also cleared stated in the description that the YB7 was only manufactured in 1988 and 1989. Parts of the description are also suspiciously similar to what I wrote in an earlier Bimota YB7 listing: https://raresportbikesforsale.com/1988-bimota-yb7-for-sale-down-under/
Whatever the case maybe, the YB7 is a jewel, and with the current price at £1,500.00 (approx. USD2300), it’s worth a shot to place a bid and see where it goes? Good luck and have fun!
