That Is – 1992 Ducati Paso 907IE

Ducati toughed it out with the original Paso, making small improvements until the fuel injected 907 I.E. was introduced in 1991.  Today’s has miles but a recent restoration and a couple of nicer add-ons.

1992 Ducati Paso 907IE for sale on eBay

With water cooling and Weber injection, the 907IE’s 904cc’s claim a robust 90 hp, and torque giving a wide range of 3,000 to 8,500 revs in the power band.  The square tube chassis is all but invisible under the full Tamburini bodywork, with Marzocchi suspension adapted from the 851 superbike.  300mm Brembo brakes and 120 front / 190 rear tires were more sport than touring.  Behind the body-color windshield, the cockpit reviewed as roomy and even a pillion wouldn’t look out of place. 

Parked in the lounge area of some kind of motoring workshop, this 907 I.E. looks great with pretty correct decals and white wheels.  Guessing those are period Staintune silencers, and the Corbin saddle appears to give a slightly lower and more supportive seat.  Looks and sounds like the restoration was substantially cosmetic, with just a couple of maintenance items discussed in the eBay auction –

This is an excellent running and looking 907.. No Problems .. Restored about 5 years ago .. Repainted, decals , had white rims powder coated . Corbin seat .. mechanically all I have done is a water pump, brakes and battery .. put less than 1000 miles in my ownership and less than 100 in the past 3 years .. Have many other bikes .. Plenty of parts availability on eBay if you need but a very reliable fun bike .. Amazingly comfortable ..

All the Paso variants were priced a little higher and had a quirk or two more than the competition, and sales never seemed to exceed 1,000 per year.  Still fans who liked the sound and the chassis ( and hung soft bags over the pillion ) lamented its early retirement.  These days it’s a sensible entrée into the red bike spectrum and this one has a very low starting bid.

Save the Bees – 2008 Suzuki B-King GSX1300BK

 

Image 8 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

A cool aspect about the motorcycle industry is that it’s driven largely by enthusiasts. When you have a bunch of enthusiasts who are ready to hand over cash or take out loans to buy things they really don’t need, well that’s when you get things like the B-King. Something that very few people asked for or needed but still exists because…motorcycles. But hey, I’m not complaining. Go big or go home. Why reuse a K5 GSXR motor for your naked bike when you can reuse a Hayabusa motor?

Image 10 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

The B-King is a bike bike. No two ways about it. It weighs in at 582 pounds wet and has a 60 inch wheelbase. A bit heavier and longer than a Hayabusa. However, Suzuki has never been one to make a bike with bad handling characteristics. A B-King-specific frame and suspension package are paired with twin 310mm floating discs to make the bike tamable for the right rider. It takes up a lot of visual space too. The absurdly wide tank/motor section and sharp angles give the eye a lot to look at.

Image 13 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

A couple scuffs are visible on the right side fuel tank cover from a drop which is mentioned by the seller in the listing. Body panels aren’t super easy to find but an NOS part out of Japan should do the trick.

Image 18 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

The scrape on the starter cover is more of a turn off to me than the scuffs on the plastic. Scuffs on the right side are mentioned in the listing but this would be worth inquiring about. That being said, the bike still shows decent and these are pretty easy fixes. You should be able to recoup your money and then some since these are becoming quite hard to find.

Image 15 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

The Yosh pipe is just one of many tasteful accessories the owner has installed. Overall, the bike looks stock which is the most important thing.

Image 17 - 2008 Suzuki B-KING GSX1300BK

From the seller:

“…I am the second owner of this beauty and I have had her for a few years. Original owner was another enthusiast in Texas, he took perfect care of it and so did I. The bike has been regularly serviced by me, and is in overall excellent condition. Only ~9,300 miles sitting on the odometer; she has so much life left to live. This was my dream bike and I am lucky enough to have had her for years, but it is time to say goodbye sadly. Bike is accident free. One driveway drop (before me) left her with a few scuffs/scratches on the right side perfectly visible in pictures. Local pickup is in Northern, NJ or you arrange shipping.”

“The modifications are valuable and professionally done. Nothing has been done to the motor, so you don’t need to worry about that. Below are two lists, one of installed modifications and accessories, the other uninstalled ones. I am including EVERYTHING below, even the uninstalled modifications and accessories. Take a gander at these long lists:
Installed Modifications/accessories
-Yoshimura Brake/Clutch Fluid reservoir covers, titanium purple
-Yoshimura Full Carbon true dual undertail exhaust system
-Yoshimura Exhaust Heat Shield with rear blinkers, titanium purple
-Yoshimura License plate mount tail kit w/led taillight, titanium purple
-Tekarbon Full Carbon Fiber vented side panels
-RG3 Rear Shock
-SportBikeLites High Intensity Headlight
-Progrip Carbon Tank Pad
-Contour Protaper Mini High Handlebars
-Contour Protaper Handlebar Risers
-*NEW* Avon Storm 3D X-M tires, 200mm rear, 120mm front. These tires were put on last year and have about 150mi on them. Just about broken in, grippy but great overall performance.
-Custom aluminum “B-King” milled aluminum Crank Case Cover
-Hayabusa Kanji custom aluminum powder coated Engine Clutch Cover
-Puig Pro Frame sliders
-OES Frame Sliders
-CRG Bar end mounted mirrors
-Suzuki OEM Single Rider Rear Nacelle

Uninstalled modifications/accessories

-National Cycle V-Stream Windshield (mounting bars are already installed)
-Teka SFI Pro Tuner (new in box)
-MGK Laser Iridium Spark Plugs (new in box)
-HealTech X-TRE Power Box (for defeating the speed limiter and increasing throttle response)
-ABBA Superbike Stand
-Trackside Front Paddock Stand
-Nelson Rigg Touring Saddlebags”

There probably isn’t a single rider out there who isn’t curious about how far back the B-King will push their eyeballs into their skull. If you survive the first few months of ownership and you still want more out of it you can kit it out with a turbo. After all, the B-King concept debuted with a turbo and the “B” in B-King does stand for boost.

Queens Gambit – 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R

Triumph did a pretty much total refresh on the Daytona 675 for 2013, and presented a very equipped R-model as well.  This example has been tucked away in an NYC borough and looks well tended.

2013 Triumph Daytona 675R for sale on eBay

Hinckley started in the engine bay, increasing the triple’s bore and reducing stroke by a couple of mm, making a 14,500 rpm redline possible with peak 128 hp at 12,500 revs.  A separate cylinder casting has Nikasil bores, and two injectors for each cylinder keep the 13.0-to-1 compression ratio fueled.  The six-speed was updated and incorporates a slipper function in the ramped clutch, as well as a quick-shifter for the -R.   The alloy chassis uses less castings to achieve its combination of lightness and stable mounting points for all Öhlins suspension, with an adjustable swingarm pivot for track set-up.  The R-model gets the better Brembo monoblocks, and features ABS with a selectable “circuit” mode.  The exhaust stays under the engine to keep its weight centralized, and carbon fiber trim makes theirs disappear.

Looks like this Daytona is housed in a courtyard, but with 8,500 miles looks good enough that it must be covered as well.  Tank bumpers and grips are seen, but looks otherwise stock.  With new rubber and a spring service call, this Daytona looks ready for tomorrow’s ride.  Comments from the eBay auction –

  • Clean titled sport motorcycle that has never been dropped and well maintained.
  • Fully serviced by Triumph’s certified dealer at Nassau county, New York.
  • Most recent service: April 29, 2022
  • New Tires (Pirelli Diablo Rosso, 180 + MPH rated)
  • Front & Rear brake flushes and bleed
  • Radiator flush and new coolant
  • General inspection & 10,000 miles recommended service by Triumph

Except for ABS and the quick shifter, this fairly late model foregoes the current electronic wizardry, which might be a good long term strategy.  The update got high marks from the press for its light weight and moderate riding position, and didn’t misplace the earlier Daytona magic.  The R has all the good stuff and the starting bid is a little over half the price when new.

Clean Freak – 1985 Suzuki GS1150ES

Makers were working hard to stand out in the post-recessionary 1980’s, and Suzuki evolved their GS1150 into a GT that could pull a 10-1/2 second quarter mile.  Today’s GS looks excellent and has had some recent tune-up work.

1985 Suzuki GS1150ES for sale on eBay

Suzuki’s 1135cc mill was an incremental update from the 1100, air cooled with two cams and four valves.  114 hp were readily available, thanks to four 36mm Mikuni carbs.  A new square-tube chassis was commissioned, with air-adjustable Kayaba forks and a Full Floater monoshock.  Suzuki’s Positive Damping Force anti-dive system combines with a 16-inch front wheel to help in the twistier bits.  The distinctive fairing makes a generous hole in the windrush, helping win the 200-yard roll on contest with a 50-to-90 mph run.

Offered by a dealer that seems to pay the rent with a line of pressure-washing trailers, this GS shows under 8,000 miles and had me thinking re-paint, but the overall condition makes that more of a question.  Maybe the plastics had a rather liberal splash of protectant, but the metal finishes look like they haven’t spent much time in the hot Texas sun.  Love the black chrome mufflers.  The seller states they can broker the shipping and has a few comments in the eBay auction-

If you are old enough to remember the debut of the Suzuki GS1150 ES, you remember they were the King of the Hill.

These days these bikes are rare to find – especially in this condition!

This bike is an incredible, unmolested survivor with only 7,600 miles!

Complete recent service including ultrasonic carb cleaning. oil/filter change, new plugs and valve lash check.

Starts/run and stops like it should – everything works!

Beside external GPz/V65/FZR pressures, Suzuki had their own Katana and GSX-R1100 ready, and the GS1150ES was retired after 1986. Reviewers set the PDF forks on their lowest setting ( or disabled them entirely ), and squawked a mid-range vibration in the bars and pegs.  Drag racing success meant relatively few survived the long term in anything like the condition seen here.  Looking forward to seeing where the reserve is set !

Little Italy – 1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Replica

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

Up for sale today we have a 1995 RS250 Reggiani Race Replica. The RS250 was first released in 1994 after Aprilia pocketed both the 125cc and 250cc championships. While RS250s were mostly popular in Europe, some examples, including this one on BAT, have made their way into collections stateside.

The RS250 is what you would get if you plucked a commoner out of Japan and took them on a shopping spree in the Milan Fashion District. Swap the Asics for some Ferragamos. Aprilia realized there was no need to reinvent the wheel to make their way to the top step of a highly contested 250cc class. They started with Suzuki’s RGV250 engine and wrapped it in go-fast bits. The seller does a good job detailing the specs in the listing so I’ll stay out of the way there.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

To keep up appearances, Aprilia had to boost the power spec so their owners could scoff at regular 250s wherever they went. With some tweaks, Aprilia claimed they got 72.5 hp but that number was a bit lower in reality. I don’t think the hp number is all that important for these bikes anyway. The experience of riding a two-stroke race bike on the street is really what you are buying. If you do fancy a bit more power check out this exhaust system from Tyga Performance.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

Looking at the frame of the RS250 compared to its Japanese counterparts, you see the distinct design philosophies that have goverened everything that has come out of Japan and Italy. Keep in mind, this isn’t just a pretty face. The swingarm is asymmetrical to allow for more cornering clearance with the exhaust, the frame is made out of magnesium and aluminum to keep the weight down, and the Brembo binders that pinch two 298mm discs up front are more than adequate for race use.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

The seller completed a pretty thorough overhaul of the engine. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and there about 7 pictures of the engine overhaul in the listing and 3 videos of the bike running so have at it.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Racing Replica

From the seller:

This 1995 Aprilia RS250 was produced as a tribute to Aprilia factory rider Loris Reggiani and is powered by a 249cc two-stroke V-twin paired with a six-speed transmission. The bike is finished in red, purple, and gray and is equipped with a solo saddle, a tinted windscreen, adjustable suspension, a Zeeltronics programable ECU, a two-into-two exhaust system, twin Mikuni carburetors, triple Brembo disc brakes, and 17″ wheels. The bike was reportedly first registered in the Netherlands, and was acquired by the seller in 2019 in Florida and subsequently relocated to Texas. Work under current ownership included overhauls of the engine and suspension, and replacing the ECU, tires, and more. This RS250 is now offered with receipts and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name that lists it as a 1996 model.

With 5,700 miles and a fresh rebuild, this bike seems like it’s in pretty good mechanical and cosmetic condition. A clean 1995 RS250 Chesterfield with just over 4,000 was listed for $14K and sold in 6/21 on RSBFS!

I’ll be honest. By the time I started following road racing, in my mind, two smokers were pretty much equivalent to Nokia bar phones. That being said, the only thing the two have in common are the era in which they were mainstream. The comparison stops there.

The Big Kat: 1982 Suzuki Katana 1000

If you are an enthusiast of a certain age, big bore nostalgia simply must look something like this 1982 Suzuki Katana. Designed by Target Design of Germany (with key member Hans Muth involved), the Katana was a stunning departure from motorcycle design of the time. This was a bike that looked mean and ready to hurt you just parked on the showroom floor. If it were a dog, it would growl at you as you approach. Dominated by motor and angular bodywork, the Katana also had subtle elements such as the nifty all-in-one gauge cluster, the offset gas cap, and the two-tone seat.

1982 Suzuki Katana for sale on eBay

Strip away the iconic bodywork and the GSX transforms into what is essentially a more pedestrian GS. The air-cooled mill, the 4-valve heads, the 5-speed transmission… it was already there in the parts bin just waiting to be used. But Suzuki put it to good use in the creation of the Katana, a bike that differed surprisingly little from the stunning concept bike unveiled just a year earlier. From the original model spawned many variants and sub-variants, both in terms of capacity (i.e. extending the Katana name throughout the lineup), as well as different versions of the big bike.

From the seller:
1982 Suzuki Katana 1000
14,505 Original Miles
Engine, carburetors and exhaust completely stock
Brake system overhauled
Recently serviced
New clutches
New throttle cable
The original black chrome exhaust is in excellent condition
Stater cover has minor scratches.

The seller has included a video walkaround tour of this particular bike here:

There is some confusion concerning this particular example. The eBay advert clearly states this is a 1000, but the supplied video calls it out as an 1100. Both are possible, but the 1100 is more likely due to the rarity of the 1000cc homologation models (Suzuki was targeting AMA racing at the time). A VIN check could help here, but none was supplied. Additionally, the seller states the original black chrome exhaust is in excellent condition – but I see bright chrome in the pictures. That could be lighting or perspective as well, so possibly not an issue. There are some non-stock mods that I see including flush-mount turn signals front and rear and what appear to be non-OEM brake lines and fittings. That is really only critical if this is to be considered an investment machine, as stockers continue to command the highest market prices.

This auction is going on now in a classified, Buy It Now format. The seller is asking $19,500 for the bike which in today’s market might actually be going rate for a top line GSX1000S / GSX1100S, if not a little optimistic. We don’t see these time machines come through much anymore, and the stock on hand is certainly dwindling. That makes this a pretty rare find (even during the springtime high season), and interested parties might want to check out all of the details here. Good Luck!!

Bimota May 20, 2022

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.  Please email Jaguarsurfer@yahoo.com with any questions, or to express interest.

Colorfast – 2013 Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC

Twenty-teens naked superbikes are often a bit over the top, and the V4R Tuono shows that Aprilia got a head start.  Vegas-based Eurocycle offers this liter-sized V-4 with all the electronic wizardy, moderate miles, and a fairly relaxed riding position.

2013 Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC for sale on eBay

Aprilia’s game-changing V4 has a 65-degree splay, with the four pack of Dell’Orto throttle bodies which adjust length dynamically.  Four cams and four valves per cylinder are at the top of the 167 hp lump, which has been optimized for torque on the Tuono.  The alloy chassis takes advantage of the V-4’s naturally skinny width, and sports a little more wheelbase, rake and trail than the RSV4 Superbike.  That extra stability is complimented by the 43mm adjustable Sachs forks and piggyback reservoir monoshock.  A full suite of electronics helps keep the shiny side up, with three throttle maps plus selectable traction / wheelie / launch control.  The factory quick-shifter and slipper clutch are a bit more analogue.

Though no history is offered, this Tuono looks excellent for its 15,432 miles.  A few mods are shown, with shorty exhaust and levers, extended windscreen, tail tidy, bar end mirrors, and T-Rex frame sliders.  The listing states that the bike is on display at their Sonoma County location, so might be worth a call before pushing any buttons.  Some warranty time might be desirable with all those electronics and it would be something to ask about.  Some Aprilia marketing info from the eBay auction:

The performance and features of a superbike, the agility of a naked and the legacy of an innovative concept born in 2002 with the Tuono 1000 R – a bike that earned both critical acclaim and sales success – but with an extraordinary ace up its sleeve: the performance of a 65° V4 engine and the most advanced electronics available in a motorcycle today.

Like the original Tuono, the V4 is also immediately recognizable with its triple headlight fixed top fairing, the distinguishing trait of a bike which, like its twin cylinder predecessor, has the body and soul of its WSBK homologated sibling, but now – as well as having two world championships (the 2010 constructors’ and riders’ titles) under its belt – features two more cylinders and 41 horsepower more than before, while weighing over 22 pounds less. These astonishing figures are a testimony to the technological evolution that made this exciting model a reality. The bike is available in two colours: competition black, sunlit yellow.

Though the V4R’s appetite for straightaways might be insatiable, the thin and light package will make short work of the technical stuff, too.  The ask is a little more than half of the MSRP, seeming like a pretty good buy for the top of the line, and it’ll be a while before you see yourself going by.  Depending on how the APRC is set up, 4.5 gallons of dino juice might last all morning.
