Featured Listing: 1998 Bimota SB6R

In the spirit of full disclosure, this bike is being offered by RSBFS contributor, William. -dc

If you have been a reader of RSBFS for any length of time, you know we are huge Bimota fans.  The appeal is the wonderful marriage of exotic Italian design, incredible engineering and the proven performance of an OEM engine.  In this case the SB6R is powered by a water-cooled GSXR1100 engine.  Service cost are kept in check by the use of the Suzuki engine.  Suspension is Paoli adjustable forks out front and an Ohlins adjustable shock in the rear.  Plenty of stopping power is provided by the Brembo Goldline calipers.  The end result is a machine with the reliable power of the GSXR1100, but the better part of 100 less pounds to move down the road.

We have featured many examples over the years and this particular bike was purchased here in 2019 by me as my first Bimota experience.  I had a long standing passion for the brand and jumped at the opportunity to get this bike back on the road.  At this point my passion has surpassed my garage capacity and this bike needs to be moved on to a new home.  As with any bike that has gone a while without use, the fuel system needed to be cleaned.  Viton seals were installed in the carburetors after a total tear down and ultrasonic cleaning.  New intake manifolds were installed to replace the original dry cracked units.  Tires, breaks and service items were also installed.  Under my stewardship I have covered about 500 miles of trouble free enjoyment.

Details About The Bike:

For the 2020 season:

  • Michelin Power RS Tires

  • New Battery

  • EBC Brake Pads

  • All Hydraulics Flushed

  •  Coolant Flushed

  • NGK Plugs

  • Carburetor Rebuild

  • New OEM Suzuki Intake Boots/Manifolds 

The bike shows very well with low mileage of just over 3,000 miles.  The red bodywork pops in the sunlight, and the Corse exhaust provides and intoxicating sound.  The carbon is glossy and the billet work is amazing to look at.  All lights, gauges, switches and systems work as they should.  Would be at home on display as part of a collection, or out for the occasional Sunday ride.  No leaks, smoke, funny noises or issues to report.  This bike will provide many more miles of enjoyment should the new owner decide.

Sold with a Clear Title and an asking price of $13,500.
