From the Cape: 1998 Bimota SB6R

Bimota is known for taking the road less traveled – in order to travel that road faster and with more exclusivity. And while Bimota has had some brilliant successes and failures, it was the SB6R that promised mainstream potential. Housing a GSX-R1100 powerplant magically wrapped in aluminum and fiberglass, the SB6R weighed less than the Suzuki donor bike that gave up the engine and trans. Fast, powerful and looking like it was built to break speed limits everywhere, the SB6R is among the most approachable of the Bimota set, and always worth a closer look.

While you would be forgiven to lust after a more exotic Bimota – say a VDue or Tesi – the SB6R is a work of art in its own right. Look closely at the details and let the fun begin. Where to start? How about that asymmetrical swing arm, complete with BIMOTA stamped out in raised lettering. Light, trick and very indicative of the level of workmanship. Check out the under tail exhaust poking out shotgun style over the rear wheel. Look at the solo saddle. No passengers on this ride, and there is no faux solo seat cover to confuse the issue. This is a rider’s bike. Check out the Bimota-logo instruments and spend some time on those lovely triple clamps. Yes, those started life out as billet blocks. Even the non-Bimota stuff is gorgeous: the rear Ohlins shock and placement, the right side up Paioli fork with carbon covering and quick release, and the Brembo binders all work together to create art.

From the seller:
On offer is this mint condition Bimota SB6R.
Corse exhausts.
Low mileage, well maintained and serviced recently.
I have also included an additional original rear wheel.
This prime example would make a great addition to any motorcycle collection.
Worldwide shipping is available at competitive rates.

In a sad twist of irony, it was the more exotic Bimota VDue that sealed the fate of the SB6R. With the recalls of the two-stroke machine pushing Bimota into bankruptcy, a mere 600 SB6Rs were produced – far fewer than anticipated. That makes this particular bike a bit rare. Unfortunately in this case rare does not immediately equate to expensive. While this was priced above $30,000 when new, these are laregely sub $10k machines today. And that makes them well worth the purchase. Where else can you find the exclusivity and panache that only a Bimota can give you – not to mention the handling and performance – for that kind of dosh? Sure, maintenance is a bit tough on many of these models due to the tight tolerances between the engine, frame and bodywork, but thankfully the Suzuki mill is well neigh bulletproof. Check it out here, as this one is looking for an opening ask of $9,900. That is more than many we have seen recently, but not out of the range of reason by any means. Good Luck!!

Summer 2019 Featured Listing Report

I’d like to start this post with a HUGE THANK YOU to all the RSBFS faithful — with your following and support I am proud to report that we have published a record number of Featured Listings in 2019! Last year we had 80 Featured Listings, and this year we’re already over 120 with 4 months to go!

Readers and buyers recognize that our 11 years online have built a reputable, loyal, and enthusiastic following that is stronger than ever. With nearly one million individual viewers annually, we have a focused and dedicated viewership that read the website routinely to see the best sport bikes on the market being offered by fellow enthusiasts.

RSBFS was originally a blog that directed readers to interesting classifieds found online. Today we’ve become a marketplace in our own right as readers wanted to ensure their bikes were listed on our site, sometimes exclusively, and sometimes in conjunction with a listing elsewhere like eBay or Craigslist. The response has been overwhelming positive and RSBFS is busier than ever!

When we don’t have a “Featured Listing” to post on the site for a particular day, we still comb the internet for interesting finds. But for readers that want to ensure their enthusiast or collector quality bike is in front of our audience, we ask for a Featured Listing to be considered. The listing fee is 1% of your asking price or reserve, up to $125 each.

Here are a couple of recent testimonials that I’m especially pleased to share since we’ve implemented the new listing fee:

Jim on the recent sale of his Yamaha RZ350:

Found a buyer in California for this – he found out about it from your website. I appreciate your help in selling this. This site put my bike in front of the audience/fellow enthusiasts that I wanted to reach.

And this review just came in from Ryan on the recent sale of his Ducati Monster S4R:

When I decided to sell the Monster, I didn’t want to simply sell through cycle trader or the local classifieds. Your site has been a pleasure to read over the years since I discovered it. I’m a fan of how each bike is showcased and I leave an article knowing more about the bike’s features, specifications, and history.

My buyers were shopping different models and the RSBFS article helped educate about model specifics, and she said that the 3rd party review of the bike from your site made my listing feel much more legitimate. I had no doubts personally about the condition and the maintenance history, but that’s difficult to convey to a buyer solely through an ad. After seeing the bike in person, and a short test ride the sale was a done deal. We definitely found the one right buyer for the bike and the rare sport bikes listing was well worth it.

I can always revisit your site to reminisce, and maybe get lost in some other rare motorcycles.

Thanks for your site, and it’s been a pleasure working with you.
-Ryan

I couldn’t be more proud of our community and the RSBFS contributors! Thank you all for your support and we look forward to helping you sell your collectible and enthusiast offerings this fall.

Sincerely,

Dan Crouch.

Featured Listing – 1991 Bimota Tesi 1D

CMG Motorcycles has two motorcycles on RSBFS right now, a 0 mile VDue and a brand new Bimota Tesi! Check them both out! -dc

1990 saw the designer who succeeded founder Massimo Tamburini depart, and a new engineer arrive. Pierluigi Marconi presented a clean sheet design with inherent anti-dive and the 904cc Ducati desmoquatro. This piece of Bimota history is offered with zero miles and ready to display.

Inside the Omega-shaped alloy frame, the water cooled L-twin pumped 113 hp via a six-speed transmission and chain drive.  Outside the frame were two similar swingarms, with hub-center steering in front, suspension and steering mechanically separate, and brakes could be applied without drastically affecting the tire loading and balance.  Typical Bimota appointments included top Marzocchi dampers and Brembo brakes.  Peculiar looking when bare, the Tesi 1D has a not-so-unusual monoposto fairing and riding position.

Coming from the client side of a New Zealand multi-line dealer, this Tesi has been on display since new.  For a fan, it seems like too many appear without even break-in miles, but an unridden creampuff is great for the buyer.  Transport from Oceana will have to be considered by the new owner, but is worth the effort in this case.

With all the CNC machined parts and pull-rod controls, the Tesi was expensive to build and many prospective buyers couldn’t accept the radical looks.  Only a few hundred were built and many had just a short ride before retirement.  And though two successive generations were introduced in the 2000’s, the 1D Tesi makes the original statement.  CMG Motorcycles asks $43,990 USD for this example, and requests inquiries be sent to Brad by email  – here –.

Featured Listing: 2007 Bimota DB6 Delirio Azzurro

When it comes to motorcycle manufacturers, none seem to offer the combination of performance, artwork and mystique than iconic builder Bimota. Originally known for their frames and eventual frame kits for various engine makers, Bimota made the leap to become a full-blown motorcycle manufacturer utilizing Ducati power plants exclusively (with the exception of the ill-fated, in-house Vdue project). And by standardizing on a family of engines, Bimota was able to hyper-extend their focus on the art of performance. This maniacal frenzy of artistic and mechanical expression is best seen on the lesser-clothed machines – and this rare DB6 Delirio Azzurro is the perfect case study.

Featured Listing: 2007 Bimota DB6 Delirio Azzurro

All in all, there are seven different variants of the DB6 platform. All enjoy the same gorgeous trestle frame with aluminum side plates, Brembo binders, Marzocchi suspension (Ohlins for the R bikes) and air cooled, Ducati desmo engine. The earliest of the models – including today’s Delirio Azzurro – utilized the fuel injected 992cc dual spark mill, while later DB6 models were uprated to the 1100 (actually 1078cc) format. The Azzurro is one of the more rare versions of this already rare bike, offering some exclusivity due to the graphics and purpose. As the story goes, Bimota created this version of the DB6 as a tribute to the Italian soccer team for winning the World Cup. Football – or soccer as it is known in the US – is a very big deal throughout most of Europe, South America and Australia. World Cup winners are heroes in their home country, and being Italian the 2006 World Cup winners received a special edition Bimota. A total of 23 bikes were produced in this striking livery with a only a few being offered to the public. Grazie!!

From the seller:
This bike is one of 23 ever made and was given as a gift from the Italian government to one of the 2006 Italian World Cup championship players. A New York collector bought this bike and stored it in his climate controlled garage. I purchased the bike from him when he was relocated back to Europe and have displayed it in my office in my home ever since. This bike has less than 1000 miles on it. It is number 8 of 23.

Price: $ 25,000
Contact: tonybosi@gmail.com
or 201.206.4572

Artfully executed from frame to swing arm, polished and anodized to show striking contrast, fitted with top-notch components throughout with performance on tap thanks to light weight and Ducati torque, the DB6 Delirio Azzurra is a sharper, crisper, rarer Monster. It retains all of the rideability traits of the naked bike – upright seating, low weight and simply less clutter and farkles, but loses none of its potency when the going gets twisty. With miles of ground clearance, compliant suspension, boat-anchor brakes and exclusivity that only a hand-built, limited production machine can bring this is the bike you want to be on to show the world you’ve made it in style.

With fewer than 1,000 miles on the analog/digital clocks, this particular example has spent more time being seen than being ridden. But when you have artwork that looks like this, one might just have to reconsider the other side of the equation. Certainly the value with any collector piece such as this relates to condition, and lower miles simply equate to the perception of better condition. Mechanically sympathetic readers might cringe at “hangar queens,” but there are many facets to the hobby; the artistry that goes into a Bimota makes for collector appreciation even while static. This uber-rare Bimota is looking for a new home. If you are a riding fan, a Bimota fan, a Ducati dual spark desmo fan, a football fan (or even a soccer fan), or a fan of all things Italiano, this is something you should be checking out. Interested readers can give Tony a ping via phone or email. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing: 1998 Bimota SB6R for Sale

Update 4.29.2018: Now on eBay as well for $12,500. -dc

Bimota’s SB6R followed the earlier SB6, one of their best-selling models of all time, with approximately 1,200 made. The SB6R likely would have been produced in similar numbers, but for the debacle that was the radical, two-stroke VDue. That bike’s failure pulled the whole company down into bankruptcy, and when the company was resurrected in 2003, the SB6R was not in the lineup, likely due to the discontinuation of the SB6R’s GSX-R1100 powerplant with the demise of that model in 1998.

1998 Bimota SB6R for sale on eBay

That GSX-R engine was famously powerful and bulletproof, and was backed by a five-speed gearbox that reflects the bike’s freight-train character: the Bimota’s claimed 156hp might not seem all that impressive, but the liquid-cooled inline four had a storming midrange and the SB6R was very light for the era. Paioli forks up front and an Öhlins shock round out a package that can still embarrass modern motorcycles in skilled hands, but a complete lack of electronic aids means it remains an “experts only” motorcycle.

The SB6R used the SB6’s massive, aluminum “Straight Connection Technology” beam frame, with more modern, conservative bodywork that lost the SB6’s swoopy looks and the exhaust hidden within the tail section. The styling elements of the updated SB6R may be derivative: fairing “speed holes” from a CBR900, a pair of undertail exhausts like a 916, and a trapezoidal headlight like an FZR… Okay, it actually was the headlight from an FZR. But somehow, even though the elements are familiar, the overall look was very much a Bimota. It’s almost the anti-916: bulbous and curving instead of wasp-waisted and slab-sided, built around a beam-frame instead of a trellis, powered by an inline four instead of a twin…

This Bimota certainly isn’t one of the best bikes of the era, but it is one of my personal favorites. This particular example is a rarity, a machine ready for the road that appears to have had the bugs worked out and only some very minor blemishes. It’s also a very low serial number: 000023.

From the Seller: 1998 Bimota SB6R for Sale

I have come once again to your fine forum to move a jewel. I know you have featured a few of these, so I wont go through the Bimota propaganda and just get to the meat of what I have done. The usual Bimota story, well heeled individual purchased and rode very little, used more as a object d’art, rather than a mode of transportation for the majority of its life. She is now ready for riding. This thing rips, even with my 6’4″, 220 pound, Yeti-like mass aboard.

  • Equipped  with the Bimota Corse Titanium exhaust
  • Kevlar brake lines
  • Michelins
  • Rebuilt carburetors, new needle valves
  • New NGK plugs
  • Oil and filter
  • New fuel pump from Bimota Classic Parts
  • New petcock from Bimota Classic Parts
  • All new Motion Pro fuel lines
  • New fuel filters
  • Cleaned fuel tank
  • The fuel system is now up to original Bimota factory spec.
  • This bike pulls like a freight train.
  • 2 small cracks in the gauge lens
  • Ridden and on the road
  • Every system functional
  • No issues
  • All paperwork in order.
  • 2 Original Bimota keys.

Price: $12,500
Contact Chris: gsxronly@aol.com or 407-492-5854

The seller is asking $12,500 for this SB6R, which is on the high-end, but the bike looks to be in highly functional condition, which is critical: Bimotas are often derided for their kit-bike quality when new, so set up is key. The fact that this one is claimed to be ready for the road is kind of a big deal, and mileage is pretty low as well. The Corse exhaust is a nice addition since it reduces weight from high up and at the tail end of the machine, and any Bimota with stock pipes is likely to stay that way at this point, unless you feel like having someone custom fabricate a set for you: just 600 were made so there isn’t much demand for aftermarket parts.

Bitcoin level Bimota: Zero miles 1992 Bimota Tesi 1D in Switzerland

Here is a time capsule, a zero miles/NOS Bimota Tesi 1D SR that has never had fluids installed.  The 1st generation Bimota Tesi is already a bit of unobtanium and something every collector considers so this one is certainly one to take notice of…plus the color scheme is perfect for the holidays.

1992 Bimota Tesi 1D with zero miles in Switzerland

Thinking back on the late 1990’s, it seems safe to say that the manufacturer that best embodied the period ethos of “throw-it-against-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks” was Bimota.   Part of that was due to its small nature/lack of multi-layered governance and part of it was also probably due to it being an Italian firm where a certain level of fla.ir is expected.  Regardless, Bimota was willing to bring unproven concepts all the way to market and while some of these never delivered as promised (cough-VDue-cough), the Tesi series actually did what it promised.

The Tesi promise was improved handling via a new suspension feature; hub-centered steering.  The Bimota hub centered suspension setup transferred braking force into the frame, not up into the headstock area like on a conventional bike.  Without the impact of braking on the forks, the front end was significantly more stable which made handling feather quick and rock stable.

NOTE:  A good write up about the concept of hub-centered steering and Tesi can be found here.

>

At the launch of the Tesi 1D Bimota said the plan was to build 300 but the actual production numbers are a bit vague.   According to sources I found, over 400 were produced between its launch and end in 1994 and this number is said to have included about 50 produced with 400cc for Japan as well as some “Final Edition” and SR models which came with a 904cc 851 motor (the seller indicates this is one of the SR editions).

Mounted in Bimota’s beautiful “Omega” frame the 904cc Ducati powerplant worked with the hub-center handling improvements to deliver a bike incredibly nimble for its size.  So why didn’t the the Tesi and it’s hub-centered design become the future of motorcycling?  The main factor was probably price.  When introduced the Tesi was offered at the eye-popping price of $40,000 USD which made it the most expensive motorcycle on the market.   Also, the complexity of the bike scared away some owners, especially after reports surfaced that the futuristic electrics and digital dash board could suddenly shut down or give wrong readings.

>

Now lets look at this particular Tesi 1D.  According to the seller, the bike has essentially been a display piece since production.  Below is a summary of what the seller has to say:

  • Never ridden, never run, properly prepared for long term display.
  • Specifically ordered from the distributor without any fluids when new in 1992. Neither the hydraulic brake system front and rear, nor the cooling system nor the original battery have ever been filled with fluids.
  • All mechanical components inside the engine are still coated with assembly lube from the Ducati factory. The engine is filled with a light-weight oil to preserve internals, it has never been started or run.
  • Kept in a climate controlled environment without UV light present, so there has been no deterioration of any rubber pieces and no discoloration of any painted or coated surfaces. Of course there is no oxidation present on any metal surfaces or fasteners.
  • The protective yellow zinc plating on all three cast iron Brembo rotor surfaces is still present, the seat foam on the molded solo seat pad and backrest is still uncompressed. The tires mounted were specified to be racing tires when ordered new. Levers, grips, pegs, chain, sprockets as most everything else on this motorcycle are as new as they were in 1992.
  • Comes with all the original ownership documents, customs forms, the owners manual, the warranty booklet, copies of the parts manual and workshop manual and the original Tesi toolkit in duplicate.
  • The original early Tesi rear stand, the one off custom front stand (for displaying the bike with both tires off the ground) both mph and km/h dash boards (km dash & computer packed up, mph dash with protective white film still underneath, mounted in the fairing) and two original Weber Marelli P7 ECU computers, one chip’d for regular street use and the other fully open P7 ECU chipped for race use performance, are also included.
  • Multiple other original spares come with this bike. Of course the red Bimota cover is present and in its correct Bimota bag.

Note:  The seller also provides additional photos via an online photo album here.

Now for the real question – is this bike worth the current asking price of $150,000 USD?   Yes, you read that number right – $150,000 USD.   That’s almost 4 times the original asking price which is a level of increase I don’t think we have ever seen on RSBFS before.  To be honest, when I saw that asking price I thought this was possibly a test listing by the seller but after communication with them, this is in fact the actual Buy-It-Now asking price.  Since in most cases sellers expect offers with 10-15% of the BIN price, its seems safe to say this one is going to cost 6 figures US for any interested parties.

So is a zero miles 1D SR Tesi worth that much?  Personally I don’t think so but the 1D and 2D series of the Tesi come up for sale so rarely I don’t know what the current value is.   I do think the current ask price means it won’t go to an investment oriented collector but it could draw interest from the zero miles/”crate-bike” crowd.   I guess we can only wait and see…but it would sure be a nice way to start the new year with it in your living room.

Featured Listing – 2001 Bimota V-Due Evoluzione Corsa with Zero Miles !

1.15.2018: The owner has informed me that this bike has sold! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

What could have been the Bimota BB-2 was called the V-Due and had Bimota’s own engine, a modern two-stroke, fuel-injected 500cc twin.  However the army of engineers Bimota didn’t have allowed the project to proceed with a faulty crankcase and caused a recall which virtually bankrupted the company.  In the throes of it the factory developed a race series and released a number of machines in racing trim, as the Trofeo, and then as customer Evoluzione Corsa machines, of which this example is presented with zero miles.

Bimota originally envisioned the V-Due as a GP racer, but sold road-ready machines to keep the lights on or homologate the design.  Powered like a liter-bike but weighing in like an F2, the new-technology 500 could have been a game changer.  Behind the upper edges of the endurance fairing were the oval aluminum tubes of the perimeter frame, suspended in front with 46mm Paoli forks, and in the rear by Ohlins monoshock.  The slippery monoposto was brought to a halt by 320mm Gold Line Brembo brakes.

The V-Due Evoluzione Corsa was delivered without signals or mirrors and with lights faired over, and carbon used liberally to keep the weight well under 400 lbs.  Twin Dell-Orto carburetors replaced the fuel injection, decals declared Evoluzione on the fairing.  The expansion chambers wind their way under the seat fairing and circle back to the twin carbon mufflers.  Antera designed and produced 17-inch alloys especially for the build.

Having never been fueled or started, this Evoluzione is in a display-ready class by itself.  While many have been ridden and worked on to address running issues, careful storage and preservation has resulted in a virtually perfect example.  Here are the owner’s comments:

2001 Bimota Vdue 500 Racing (Evoluzione Corsa), as new and never been run. Complete with original stand, cover, mirrors, spare keys (still joined as from factory), owners handbooks and import/delivery literature. This bike has been carefully stored in climate controlled surroundings since import to South Africa in 2004. Before taking delivery, the seller sent her Ducati South Africa for a full run-through, hand turn, and check of everything. She has been prepared for storage, and remained in this state since. This is the Vdue to own, the 135hp version without the FI engine issues/peaky power delivery, numbered tags/vin (can be registered), and in my opinion the prettiest livery in motoGP guise – with the headlight blank, those race pipes and that digital dash – Rare, pure 90’s exotica.

Bimota suffered a short shutdown after the V-Due saga but regained their stature as a developer of exotic sports and racing motorcycles.  The company is currently focused on Ducati engines, and offers their Tesi frame as well as a more conventional sportbike and a city-sport.  With reports earlier this fall of another plant closure, Bimota’s amazing story may need to be continued by a new investor.  The V-Due holds an interesting spot as Bimota’s only bike with their own powerplant.

Justin’s V-Due continues to be stored in South Africa, and he asks $39,000.
