Prototype Brawler: 2012 Confederate X132 Hellcat Serial #001 for Sale

All right, all right. I know it's probably not technically a sportbike. But all Confederates are extremely rare by their nature, and the very definition of exotic. The X132 Hellcat is more musclebike in terms of looks and riding position, the components list looks like an exotic owner's Christmas wish list: BST carbon-fiber wheels, Berringer brake and clutch master cylinders, huge Brembo calipers, WP suspension, and a classy, high-tech MotoGadget gauge to keep tabs on the revs and other parameters.

There's an American v-twin powering the Hellcat, but you're looking at much more than a warmed-over Harley engine. It's been built by Harley specialists S&S, but is their own design and shares nothing but inspiration with Harley's 45° twin. Cylinders are splayed at 56°, with square internal dimensions and huge pistons that displace 2163cc. The result? 121 horses and an insane 14o ft-lbs of twist that almost justifies the 240-section rear tire wrapped around the carbon-fiber wheel. The box has just five speeds but, given that torque, it'd probably work just fine with four. Or three...

 

Sure, the Hellcat sacrifices cornering a bit for style, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, since most of us shouldn't be pushing the limits of a bike this valuable. And even if you don't like the overall looks, it's hard not to get lost in the details: the clear window in side of the cases that show off the gears that drive the cams, the sight glass in the frame behind the steering head that shows the oil level, since it's conveniently stored there, the machined-from-billet everything... Love it or hate it, this is a boutique motorcycle with the very best hand-crafted components.

From the original eBay listing: 2012 Confederate X132 Hellcat Prototype Serial # 001 for Sale

Up for auction OR TRADE FOR COLLECTOR/SPORT CARS (AND TRADES FOR 1986 HONDA Z50 CHROME CHRISTMAS SPECIAL MINI BIKES) is a rare opportunity to own a piece of motorcycle history. This bike was owned and operated by the land speed record holder, James Hoegh until I purchased it directly from him. I purchased this bike because I fell in love with the design, and the history. Its not a practical bike for me and it belongs in a collection or a museum. This is a unique bike that has lots of custom attributes listed below: It does have Dual high intensity xenon headlights. Clip on handle bars. 132 CI S&S Engine with a 1 piece forged crank. 132 HP and 145 ft' of torque. 5 speed manual transmission with GP style shifting, 1 gear up and 4 gears down. Custom Marzocchi 50MM race forks that are adjustable. Race tech coil over shock in rear that is fully adjustable. Dual disc Brembo brakes up front with a single brembo disc in the rear with a 2 piston caliper. BST carbon fiber wheel, front and rear. 28" seat height. Oil is circulated through the frame for cooling purposes. Large oil sight glass on on driver side where triple tree meets frame. There are a couple rock nicks in the forks which I have photo graphed. This bike is sold with a framed certificate of provenance & authenticity from Confederate motorcycle company.

The price for muscle-bike perfection and visibly, spin-y gears? A Buy-It-Now price of $40,000 which seems almost reasonable, considering the prices of new Confederates. Certainly, if you're looking to add something rare and unusual to your collection, you can't go wrong with #001, although it's a shame you'd damage the value by putting miles on it. Maybe if you just live your life a quarter mile at a time and blast from stoplight-to-stoplight, it'll take a long time to add up any meaningful mileage...

Track Day Heaven: 2004 Bimota DB5 race bike

DB5R_5

For those who participate in the occasional track day, a little masking tape and the removal of mirrors is enough. For others, a dedicated track day bike - usually an inexpensive or well-used model with track-specific changes - is in order. Take that one step further and consider a full blown race bike. If money were no object, would this be your track day weapon of choice?

2004 Bimota DB5R racer for sale on eBay

DB5R_3

Starting life out as a DB5R - considered one of the best handling of the air-cooled Ducati chasis available - and fitted with a hi-po, 1178 cc Hypermotard engine built to the hilt, this particular bike is a "cost is no object" excercise for racing. And race it did, purportedly winning several championships. And what better way to ease this mount into retirement than as a spirited track-day ride worthy of envious stares and buckets of drool?

That's exactly what the title says - and yes, it got my attention too!  In any case, here's a fuel injected Bimota DB4 i.e. with BST carbon fiber wheels and plenty of titanium and magnesium goodies for sale in Cincinnati.

VERY RARE only 9 Imported to the USA. 950 miles. $15k in BLING. BST Carbon Fiber Wheels, All Bolts inside and out are Titanium. Lots of Magnesium and Titanium Factory Race parts. I have new OEM take off parts also. Way to much to list. Car trade 911, BMW M3 M5, Audi TT, Mazda RX 8. I am a 43 year old Ducati Bimota Tech. I built this bike for my self. It is in MINT PERFECT CONDITION. Should weigh in at @ 320 pound and never on the race track.

The DB4 i.e. (only made for one year in 2000 I think) differs from the from normal DB4 in that the i.e. is fuel injected and is a biposto. Normal DB4s have been running around the $8-10,000 range, so this one with BST carbon fiber wheels and titanium and magnesium race parts should be in the $13-15,000 range.  Normally I am skeptical of "race part" claims, but I have dealt with the seller in the past and almost purchased another DB4 from him, so I know he is legit.

Personally, I prefer the original DB4s tricolore colours, but at a claimed 320 pounds and with all the go-fast goodies (BST carbon! Titanium! Magnesium! Race parts!), this one sounds like one heck of a fun ride.  Here's a list of Bimota DB4s that we have featured in the past for your reference.

If you're interested in this DB4, give Dean a call and he'll set you up right.  Oh, here's the ad on Craigslist.

A very limited edition 2007 Ducati New Blue by NCR - #50 of 50 - for $75,000!

Pretty much anything by NCR is rare, sexy, and lust-worthy and the Ducati New Blue, based on the Ducati Sportclassic Sport 1000S, has been tuned to the nines and lathered with exotic parts such as Brembo monobloc calipers, Ohlins forks and shocks, BST carbon fiber wheels, Zard(?) titanium full exhaust, and light weight magnesium crank cases. Only missing ingredient is some Kyptonite! Here's more official info on the New Blue at Ducati.com and NCR's website.

has been raced by Larry Pegram and has a meagre 100 miles on the clock:

DUCATI OF NORTH AMERICA COMMISSIONED THE NCR FACTORY IN ITALY TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A LIMITED EDITION (50 OR LESS) MOTORCYCLE TO COMEMORATE 30 YEARS AGO COOK NEILSON 1977 DAYTONA  AMA SUPERBIKE VICTORY, THIS WAS A EXTREMELY MAJOR VICTORY FOR A OUT DATED AIR COOLED V-TWIN AGAINST THE  OVER POWERING  MODERN JAPANESE  MOTORCYCLES, SO THIS WAS A EXTREMLY EXCITING PROJECT BETWEEN NCR FACTORY AND DUCATI OF NORTH AMERICA.

THE FINAL RESULT  SET THE MOTORCYCLE WORLD ON FIRE  WITH ITS UNFORGETABLE DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE - THAT RETROED OLD BLUE FROM 1977.

THIS PARTICULAR BIKE WAS SPECIALLY BUILT FOR ME BY THE NCR FACTORY,WITH EVERY SINGLE OPTION AVAILABLE BY NCR AND THEN SOME.

NCR FACTORY THOUGHT THIS BEST WAY TO COMEMORATE THIS OCCASION WAS TO RACE IT AT DAYTONA IN 2007.

SO DURING THE BUILD OF THIS BIKE THEY ASKED ME IF THEY COULD RACE MY BIKE BEFORE DELIVERY TO ME AT DAYTONA,I AGREED THIS WOULD BE A SPECIAL MOMENT. SO THEY PROCEEDED TO BUILD THIS WITH WINNING DAYTONA IN MIND AND WITH THE HELP OF DUCATI ,THEY GOT DUCATIS FACTORY RIDER LARRY PEGRAM TO RACE THIS BIKE,WHICH LARRY WAS ELATED TO DO SO.

LARRY ENDED UP PLACING 3RD WHICH IS A MAJOR ACOMPLISHMENT 1ST TIME OUT WITH NO PREVIOUS TESTING,

ALSO NO BREAK DOWNS OR CRASHES, THE WINNER WAS GUARESHI 0N A 1400CC MOTO GUZZI THAT HAD LOTS OF DEVELOPEMENT AND RACING UNDER THEIR BELT, SO LARRY WAS DOWN 300 CC ON THE WINNING BIKE. WHAT A TESTAMENT TO THIS NCR FACTORY BIKE AND LARRY PEGRAM. LARRY LOVED RIDING THE BIKE  AS HE SMILED EAR TO EAR WHEN RIDING AND WHEELING DOWN THE TRACK.

THIS IS THE MOST FAMOUS OF ALL NEW BLUES  WITH LOTS OF HISTORY AND MANY STORIES MANY MORE PICS IF YOU NEED THEM,TO THE INTERESTED BUYER I WILL CALL THEM AND FILL THEM IN ON ALL THE HISTORY.

HAVE ALL DOCS, EXOTIC PEDIGREE BOOK,BUILD PHOTOS AND MUCH MORE.

BIKE CAN BE SEEN ANYTIME IN LAS VEGAS

So let's see - created by NCR with only 50 world wide?  Check.  #50 of 50?  Check.  Raced by Ducati AMA rider Larry Pegram? Check.  Absolutely top of the shelf parts?  Check.  Signed by Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling? Double check. $75,000 price tag?  Hmm...

Having said that, if you read the text carefully and read one of the description in the photos, there is an interesting little side story to this #50 bike.  Cool?  Definitely.  But I still can't get that $75,000 out of my head.

On yet another side note, check out one of the photos with a dark grey car in the back ground - is that a Murciélago or a Reventón?!

Here's what Mike Neeves of British magazine MCN has to say after riding the New Blue at the launch:

1998 Ducati 900SS FE for sale in San Francisco

Bargain 1998 Ducati 900SS FE (Final Edition)!

My first post on RSBFS was a 900SS FE and I have always liked the classic lines of the old air-cooled Supersports.  For most people and for most street riding, these bikes are more than enough to get that stupid grin on your face without getting into too much trouble.  And $4500 will get you this very nice 1998 Ducati 900SS FE Final Edition (#30 of 300) for sale in San Francisco:

Final Edition #30
10670 Miles
All Stock except for AFAM front & 39tooth Rear Sproket (1k miles)
1k miles on brakes and tires
Magnetic Tank Bag
Battery Tender
2nd Owner
Minor Cosmetic scratches and rear light lense cracked

So there are some cosmetic scratches and the rear lense is cracked, but what do you expect for a 12 year old bike?  And for the bargain asking price, I can easily over look the minor details.  FEs have been hovering around the $5500 - $6000 range, so this one's a steal.

Also check out Ed's 900SS/FE website - chock full of good info.  If you end up getting this or any other 900SS FE, don't forget to get your bike in the 900SS FE registry as well!

Finally, just to show that Supersports can be Supersexy as well, see this tricked out 900SS FE special done up by performance parts dealer Motowheels complete with BST carbon fiber wheels, carbon fiber tank, Rizoma goodies... hmm....

2007 MV Agusta Senna for sale on ebay

These motorcycles are a tribute to the late Formula One driver Ayrton Senna who was tragically killed in 1994.

From Wikipedia:

Ayrton Senna da Silva, São Paulo, March 21, 1960, – Bologna Italy May 1, 1994) was a Brazilian racing driver and three-time Formula One world champion. He was killed in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, and remains the most recent Grand Prix driver to die at the wheel of a Formula One car.

Senna began his motorsport career in karting and moved up the ranks to win the British Formula 3 championship in 1983. Making his Formula One debut with Toleman in 1984, he moved to Lotus-Renault the following year, and won six Grands Prix over the next three seasons. In 1988 he joined Frenchman Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda. Between them, Senna and Prost won fifteen out of the sixteen Grands Prix which took place that season, with Senna winning his first World Championship, a title he would go on to win again in 1990 and 1991. McLaren's performance declined in 1992, as the Williams-Renault combination began to dominate the sport, although Senna won five races to finish as runner-up in 1993. He moved to Williams in 1994, but suffered a fatal accident at the third race of the season at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy.

Senna is regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the history of Formula One. He was recognized for his qualifying speed over one lap and from 1989 until 2006 held the record for most pole positions. He was among the most talented drivers in extremely rain-affected conditions, as shown by his performances in the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, the 1985 Portuguese Grand Prix, and the 1993 European Grand Prix. He also holds the record for most victories at the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix (6) and is the third most successful driver of all time in terms of race wins. However, Senna courted controversy throughout his career, particularly during his turbulent rivalry with Alain Prost, which was marked by two championship-deciding collisions at the 1989 and 1990 Japanese Grands Prix.

What else makes this bike so special? The ebay description of bike #212 states:

These are champions who have shattered records, pulverized pole positions and fast laps and faced all kinds of challenges. They live in our memories, remembered by the races they ran and the cars they drove. However, there are exceptions: when we think of Ayrton Senna, we do not remember him by the symbols of his success; we see the portrait of a man. We see the image of a champion in a league of his own, who not only won three world titles (1988, 1990, 1991) and 41 Grand Prix, but who was also able to carry us on the wave of his emotions like no-one else. This is because Ayrton defied speed -not just his opponents. He was attracted by the beauty of velocity and challenged it with unswerving faith. Close to the less fortunate, fair to his adversaries, Senna always drove with his heart, always allowing the man to cross the finish line before the champion.

More sensuality, more high tech, more intuition. For every new model must outshine the previous one. This goes for all MV Agusta innovations. The Senna has graced the F41000 with new and exclusive characteristics: a state of the art engine reaching 174 horsepower, a new injection system, the Weber Marelli 5SM, for better power control, the most advanced Brembo four-caliper radial brakes available. This is the excellence of MV Agusta, in honor of Ayrton Senna: the legend.

Which one would I have? Both are great but I would go for #212 as it is barely broken in and has a lot of upgrades including a tinted windscreen, Fast by Ferracci slip on carbon fiber exhaust and BST carbon fiber wheels with new tires.
