Rarified Air: Erion Racing 2000 Honda CBR600 Supersport Champion

Thanks to Ross on Facebook for pointing out that this actually a CBR600F4 and not a CBR600RR. We apologize for the error. -dc

Track Day Tuesday has come around once more, and this time we are showcasing more than a stripped down R1 or the like. Today’s machine is a proven track day hero, taking Kurtis Roberts to the top step of the 2000 Supersport championship. Yes, that is an AMA Supersport 600cc championship. And yes, that is Kurtis Roberts as in youngest son of The King, and younger brother to superstar Kenny Jr. If that is STILL not enough street cred, need I mention Erion racing? That was probably one of the most respected outfits in the AMA, and worthy of their own special Erion Racing livery Honda to boot. I’d say pretty much ’nuff said right there. The seller has a bit to say about this bike, especially since a similarly hyped machine was sold at Mecum earlier this year. But if all checks out this is probably more than a simple track day bike, and likely more of a collector than a flog-at-your-local-track rider.

2000 Erion Honda CBR600 (Kurtis Roberts) for sale on eBay

From the seller:
2000 KURTIS ROBERTS CBR600 (One of two ridden that year) championship winning bike. As ridden from the 2000 season. The other one was sold 3 months ago on Mecum for $22,000 ,that one was given to Kurtis 4 years after winning the championship (made up bike for Kurtis) and no doult was NOT ridden during that season.

Unlike the bike that sold at Mecum this year ,this bike sports all the official decals from Honda and AMA supersport series ,their are also billet pieces on the bike that were made for just Kurtis that the Mecum bike failed to have. I also have a email from Kurtis about the bike that was sold at mecum ,but that will only go to the buyer and not public

More from the seller:
This one comes with all the paper work from Erion Honda ,paid $9000 in 2000 for it ,dyno sheets and CHAMPIONSHIP poster of kurtis ridding that bike. There is Brand new set of Painted bodywork ,un touched and set of spare used wheels ( Kurtis name still on them).

I own 35 AMA bikes so this one doesn’t do much for me other than Kurtis rode it.
The bike has done one trackday since kurtis rode it (2001)
I did start it up last year, then drained the carbs and tank.

Condition is as raced pretty good ,there is a small dent in the fuel tank (if i have time I will pull it out) that is easily fixed paintless dent guy
No tiitle ,invoices from Erion Honda
purchased on the 11-10-2000,invoice and bill of sale from Kevin Erion
Doesn’t sell then it will just sit in the collection

The seller has included some photos of the aforementioned Mecum auction, which was offered up as Kurtis’ personal bike. Today’s example appears to have some provenance by way of documentation, which certainly helps determine authenticity. As a mass-produced sport bike from the turn of the century, this is an old Superstock race bike. You could certainly pick up a CBR600 more cheaply, but then it would be missing the Erion setup, the cool parts, and the fact that the butt in the seat belonged to a champion.

The pictures are not fantastic, but the bike looks to be as expected; race bikes are not babied and coddled, but flogged to win. And speaking of winning, this one could be yours for the asking price of $11k. Check out all of the details here. And if Kurtis Roberts is not your thing, perhaps you’d rather go up the generational chain and emulate dad himself, King Kenny Roberts. You can still pick up skid lids in Kenny livery, such as this one here. Not sure if the Kurtis bike and the King Kenny helmet would make you an instant hero on a track day, but it should could be fun to try. Good Luck!!

  • I know its ‘just a lowly 600 supersport’, and the most pedestrian of that era being a steel-framed CBR, but still, $11k seems like a deal for the real thing that was raced (successfully) by Kurtis. And the Erion paint scheme could be a whole lot worse to look at while you daydream about your own track shenanigans.

  • No skin in the game on this whatsoever… but I will say that I just recently purchased a spring cleaning Honda CBR929 RR tank from this seller and it was in exactly the condition that he represented in his ad, and the tank was packaged so well and securely that Ace Venture HKS shipping couldn’t have damaged it if they tried.

    Again, nothing to gain or lose here but thought I would give the seller an upvote as extremely professional and honest in my experience. Which if you are buying an ex racebike off of eBay you probably would feel more comfortable knowing 🙂

  • It’s an F4. Aluminum frame.

  • If you want to cry like I am. This exact bike sold for 2k on face book market place later last year. Yes 2000$ with extras. I was driving to buy it when it sold.

  • Only question I have is if the other one sold at mecum 3 month ago for $22k, why are you only asking for $11k?

  • My bad on the comment on the steel frame above – was thinking back to the F2/F3s I raced (which were great bikes).

    WOW $2000 for this!?!?! Yeah I’d have been crying about missing that too ,especially if you were on your way there already. That’s crazy cheap, even not running “as is”.

  • Stock forks? Stock fork internals? What shock is on it? Not the factory Showa parts that made this bike so sweet to ride. Wrong clipons too, KR rode with flat ones, not the stockers, while Miguel rode with the XX ones that were a bit taller and wider.
