Pinnacle – 2007 Honda CBR1000RR Nicky Hayden Edition

Warning!

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

Celebrating Nicky Hayden’s 2006 Moto GP Championship, the Repsol-liveried CBR1000RR was also its own high point in liter-bike performance. This very clean example has just a few updates, and new rubber.

2007 Honda CBR1000RR Nicky Hayden Edition for sale on eBay

Coming out of the American flat track scene and making his way to an AMA championship in 2002, Nicky Hayden arrived at the big Moto GP show and rode for Honda 2003-08.  Hayden helped develop the RC211V, and many of the innovations made their way to the CBR1000RR.  The engine architecture was new, with the transmission countershaft more above than behind the main shaft, shortening the engine and allowing a more compact package.  A die-cast alloy frame was used, with an electronic steering damper, and the fuel tank was more centrally located behind the tank cover.  The long swingarm leads to a more stable feel despite the whopping 172 hp.  The fairing and seat console are busy aerodynamically and the complex Repsol graphics package keeps up.

  

Apparently babied by its Tennessee owner, this CBR has just a few scuffs, but Galfer brake lines, Corbin seat, and GPR exhaust.  Though not well pictured, the signal lights have been re-done in LED, and the license plate tucked away.  From the eBay auction:

Rare Nicky Hayden Edition Repsol in great condition. 3 minor scuffs on bike, included in pictures. Added Galfer front and rear brake lines, Corbin seat, G.P.R. exhaust, oem rear seat cowl (Repsol blue), integrated brake light with signals along with led flush mount front signals, led license plate mount (under seat), and new Michelin Pilot tires. Bike also comes with both original seats (excellent condition) along with all other parts that have been replaced with upgraded parts. Bike is clean and ready to go.

  

Making the most of his share of good luck, the Kentucky Kid reached the summit in the 2006 championship, and the bike has several #1 decals.  A local boy’s signature under the Moto GP wreath makes this a rare and desirable machine, almost as much of an attraction as the high tech and exquisite production of the steady-handling superbike.  All the better with the succession of tough breaks that followed.  A singular team effort from the manufacturer, racing team, and rider made this a special year for the big CBR…
