Here’s a mouth watering Bimota YB5 in time capsule condition and advertised as all original with a mere 4,384 miles from new! The pictures are well done but there’s also no denying this bike is clean enough to eat off of.
from the seller:
You are bidding on a 1988 Bimota YB5, it is estimated that only 196 YB5 units were produced, this is example #96. The YB5 models came equipped with a tuned Yamaha fj1200 motor and produce around 130hp, and 80 lb-ft torque. In addition to tuning the motor Bimota loaded the bike with high end components such as Marzocchi M1 forks, brembo calipers, brembo cast iron floating rotors, Marvic wheels and many other beautifully high quality CNC billet bits. The YB5 was the last Bimota designed by Massimo Tamburini and is one of the rare ones with provisions for a passenger. This particular Bimota YB5 model is in all original condition, and has an exceptionally low 7060 kilometers (4384miles) on the odometer.

eBay is now allowing seller’s to upload video and the one attached to this listing is well worth checking out. I’d wear headphones or make sure the subwoofer is hooked up — it’s intoxicating!
