Ripper: 2008 Yamaha R6 Graves Spec Racebike

Summer is here, and that means track days. For some, simply taping up the headlight, taillight and turn signals is enough for a “run what ya brung” session at their closest track. Others might want a dedicated track bike that dispenses with the tape prep and makes attending a course day easier. Finally there are those that require a track day missile; nothing short of being the fastest A group guy matters. It is to those A Group types that I speak with this one. Read on:

This bike looks fantastic. The build is very sano, and I’m sure the performance is much more than a simple sum of the parts. And it is the sum of the parts that matters; you can’t build this for what you might be able to buy it for. Nothing depreciates like last year’s race bike, and the kings ransom spent on the upgrades to this machine are now but a princely sum. It likely will not appreciate. It will not get more rare or specialized; it will just get older. But if used as intended, what you have is a great bike for ripping off laps worthy of the top of the time sheets, while someone else spent the time, effort and money. That could be a good deal. I would love to see more pictures and more detail around how it all went together, but you can check it out here to see if I missed anything. Good luck!!

  • A very clean track bike with lots of nice parts. But they don’t make up that price.

  • Agree. The bike looks trick and sorted. But no matter what is spent on upgrades this is a 9 year old racebike with a freshened motor. Also WTH is with the kickstand in the photo?

    hehehe.

  • $12,000 firm… or Best Offer 🙂
