AMA Superbike Anyone? ’09 Team Jordan GSX-R 1000

Location: New York

Mileage: Who knows, who cares

Price: Auction, starting at $13,000

To honor the upcoming MotoGP race at Laguna Seca, which the RSBFS staff will be attending, here is a race bike being offered for you to consider. What the seller is offering here is an AMA Superbike GSX-R 1000 campaigned by Aaron Yates for Jordan Suzuki in 2009. Yates has been racing on a Suzuki for a while and won the Superstock title in 2005. He joined the Jordan Suzuki effort in 2007 and finished 7th overall in AMA Superbike in 2009.

Let’s get right to what the seller has to say-

Up for auction is a real JORDAN SUZUKI 2008 GSX-R1000 , it is a 2009 AMA American Superbike top 5 Finishing Race Bike.  It was riden by Aaron Yates.  The bike was used in the 4th round of the championship, Daytona, Fontana and Road Atlanta.  It was purchased from Gemini Technology Systems, (partner/ Jordan Motorsports) in 2010 & put into my personal collection & never riden.  The bike has the following:

Ohlins TTx Shock,   Ohlins Steering Dampner,   Attack Bodywork,  Braided Brake lines,  DID 520 Chain,   Quik Shifter kit,    Vortex Sprockets,

Vortex Rearsets,  Vortex Clip-ons and Bars,   Radiator and Oil Cooler Guards,  Leo Vince Exhaust, Single sided ss,  Yoshimura EMpro ECU,

Vortex Frame sliders, Vortex Swing arm spools, PFC Brake Pads,  Zero Gravity Windscreen, Vortex Rear Stand.

I just took it out of my collection & brought it down to Rich Alexander’s race shop, he put a new battery in it & fired it up , Its all set for some serious track days or keep it looking good in a collection. The bike also has a clear New York Tittle. I have a copy of the original tittle from Gemini Technology Systems.

also included in the auction , I have 2 pairs of size 11 Jordan 6 Ring Premier sneakers in the boxes never worn, 1 pair of Jordan size 11 Retro 6 Premium, (very rare)  1-xl Team pit shirt, 1-lg Team pit shirt, 1-m Team pit shirt, 2 -m tees, 3-lg tees, (all never worn)  1, framed numbered Aaron Yates print 5/230, 2-leo Vince Aaron yates posters. 1 signed 2008 Superstock Champion,  stickers, race cards.

The winning bidder is responsible for all shipping cost for the bike as well as the extra items listed.

And a truckload of photos-

So apparently here’s your opportunity to own an AMA Superbike, complete with Ohlins suspension and many other performance upgrades. The seller provides plenty of photos of the bike and documentation to show the bike’s authenticity. Also included is a boatload of Jordan Suzuki swag in the form of shirts and shoes. From everything that’s shown this appears to be the real deal. However, any serious buyer would probably want to work with the seller to confirm everything, as I suspect this machine will go for a bit higher than your standard ’09 GSX-R 1000.

So maybe you want a AMA Superbike for your track days (of course you’re that good, you just need the machine to prove it), or maybe you want a killer living room display. Or maybe your the ultimate Jordan fan.

Whatever the case, if you want to get in on the action, go check this auction out!
