Featured Listing: Beyond Sorted 2000-mile 2000 Bimota SB8R!

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Update 12.4.2017: The owner has informed us that this bike is now sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

The Bimota SB8R is a special machine on a regular day,  but this featured listing takes the rarity and prestige up a couple notches, as it is bedecked with a list of mega-expensive, unobtanium parts that would make a World Superbike team blush.

The most obvious is the unpainted, full-carbon bodywork, which encapsulates Bimota’s hand-built frame and the powerplant from a Suzuki TL-1000R. The tank is also a full-carbon fiber piece from an SB8K. We’ll just let the seller list the rest of the $45,000 upgrade package in just a minute. Its length and breadth are truly astounding.

On top of the choice list of farkles, the bike has covered just 2,000 miles in the last 17 years, and has been with its original owner the whole time. It was purchased new at Bob Smith/MotoPoint in Pennsylvania. The only possible knock on this machine is that the current owner sold off all its factory pieces to fund the modifications. Be that as it may, you can find a factory original SB8R if you look, and you likely will never see another like this one.

From the seller:

2000 Bimota SB8R. Purchased new from Bob Smith/MotoPoint, the original USA importer in Pennsylvania. 2000 Original miles. Never down, never scratched. Over $45K into the bike. Beyond customized with thousands spent and many years of modifications. Replaced all original factory plastic panels with true carbon fiber including tank from an SB8K. All other replaced factory parts were sold to fund the modifications. All graphics including stripes and logos are decals and can be removed for different look. Pampered from day one. Always garaged and covered. No stories, just an honest, impeccably maintained bike. As with all Bimota’s, very fast, very agile. Sold with clear title in my name. Located in Colorado. $21,000.00 OBO
