I’d normally ramble on about how the SB8K is my favorite Bimota and how sexy I think they are, but this time the owner has done a tremendous job detailing his beloved SB8K. I will express that I think this is a killer deal and should not be passed on if you’re remotely thinking about a Bimota.

From the seller:

This Santa Monica has been meticulously maintained and cared for since delivery by a Bimota enthusiast. It’s been stored in a climate controlled room, and detailed regularly by yours truly. As an open and honest seller, it’s important to disclose that the bike recently endured a low-speed lay down on sandy terrain. The lay down was necessary in order to avoid on-coming canyon traffic on a lazy Socal mountain road. The bike was quite literally “laid down” at ~10mph due to the front wheel locking up in the sand under heavy braking (see pics). The resultant damage was minimal, and only affected the LH rearset (dented), LH fairing (scratched), and clutch lever (broken). No other parts on the bike were found to be affected following a thorough inspection by GP Motorcycles in San Diego.
As I intended to keep this bike until my last day on Earth, I replaced all damaged parts with fresh Bimota parts sent directly from Rimmini. Although the bike is again 100%, it is being offered at a price that reflects this “story”. I sell the bike (along with the rest of my small collection) only because I simply don’t have the time to ride anymore, and these beautiful works of art were made to be ridden. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the bike in general, I completely understand and ask that you contact me at (858) 539-5307.

Many thanks, and I look forward to speaking with you.
