Bimota Dreams: 2008 Bimota DB6R with 236 miles!


From North Carolia comes this beautiful Bimota DB6R with almost no miles at all. How somebody could not ride this air-cooled 1100cc Ducati powered wonder for more that a trip around the block is anyone’s guess, but this only adds “low miles” on top of an already rare status.


The seller’s ad contains all the pertinent stats of the bike, as well as some Bimota history. There are also plenty of high-res bike porn photos available to show all of the angles of Rimini’s unique take on a naked bike. When new, these were in the rarefied air above $30k. Thankfully, those prices have come down just a bit in the used market.


From the seller:
Light, powerful and compact, the Bimota DB6R stands for the greatest riding experience you’ll be able to find on two wheels. This exotic, hand-built Italian masterpiece of a motorcycle is assembled with an acute attention to detail using race proven top-shelf components. With only 236 miles on the odometer, it’s an exceptionally rare low mileage curve carver that will out run and out handle just about anything on the road.


With a reliable and easily serviced Ducati powertrain, this DB6R gives you all the exotic panache of a Bimota with the service know-how and parts availability of Ducati. What is not to like? With top-shelf componentry throughout, this is a head turner and a road burner for sure!


The seller is asking $21,900 or best offer for this bike. That may seem a bit high for a used Bimota that is 4-5 years old, but with next to no miles on the clock and in what appears to be perfect condition, this bike will still be looking good after another 10-20 years has passed.

1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS 1100 In Alabama

A rare Moto Guzzi Daytona RS on eBay!

Bike:  1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS

Location:  Foley, Alabama

Mileage:  6,200mi

Price:  $9,000 opening bid with reserve and $13,000 BIN.

The seller states that this bike is museum quality with the majority of the 6,200 miles put on by them.  The bike is cosmetically and mechanically perfect with a recent major service including valve service, fluid flush, and new Michelin Pilot Power’s.  The pictures reflect the claims and this bike looks fantastic.  The seller states that the only modifications from stock are a FI re-programming and polished head guards.

The 1997 Daytona RS is a continuation of the 1996 model which featured the 1100cc motor and chassis tweaks compared to the earlier RS’.  This bike has a claimed output of 102bhp with 71lb-ft of torque which results in a top speed of 145mph.  The suspension is comprised of WP suspension with Brembo brakes.

The Daytona–and 1100 Sport–is easily my favorite road going Moto Guzzi.  It may be because I’m younger and these came out in my formative years but, I still find these dead sexy compared to what is usually released from Lombardy.  I imagine the odd V-Twin and shaft drive was never attractive to anyone who wasn’t a Moto Guzzi fan already–making it difficult to convert new buyers.  If you think 900SS Ducati’s are too prevalent, I’d absolutely consider one of these gorgeous machines.

See this bike on eBay .

1997 Bimota SB6R rolling Sport Bike Art!

1997 Bimota SB6R

Location: Annapolis, MD
Price: $12,000
Mileage: 1400

Found this sweet SB6R today while trolling CL ads. This one looks to be in stellar shape and ready to display or properly flog on your favorite set of twisty roads. I know these have the GSXR 1100 motors and when you pair that with Bimota’s weight saving engineering it can only make this one rip!

Check it out and pick it up here

I haven’t ever seen one of these up for sale; likely because only 10 or so were brought into the US.

1997 Bimota SB6R with 1400 original miles. Kept as a show and display bike, maintained but seldom ridden.

Needs an appreciative rider, these bikes were hand built in Rimini, Italy by craftsmen, using only the finest components. Brembo brakes, Ohlins shocks, Paoli carbon-fiber forks in a hand-built chassis with scads of CF, alloy and Ti components stock. The SB6R has the water-cooler 1100 Suzuki GSXR motor that was tweaked to put out another 10% above stock, making this the fastest, quickest bike that Bimota has ever built; and it still handles like a dream.

This bike is stock and unmolested, making it very collector desireable.
