1993 Ducati Supermono #09 Of 65/67 In Australia

This is a real Supermono in Australia!

Bike:  1993 Ducati Supermono #09

Price:  Currently $85,000 AUD (eBay)

Location:  Melbourne, Australia

Mileage:  N/A Track Bike

Located in Melbourne, Australia is a 1993 Ducati Supermono number 09 of 65.  This example was built in April ’93 and brought into Australia by Fraser’s.  The bike was only used for local competition and has been fitted with a 575cc barrel.  The original barrels, another set of fairings, spare wheels, an additional piston and other spares are included with the sale of the bike.  The entire history of this bike is known and looks to be in fantastic condition.

The standout aspect of this bike is that it was designed for the Supermono series which means it’s a big, four-stroke, single; the second aspect is that this four-stroke only weighs in at 300lbs fully ready, 277lbs with an empty tank of gas while that big single produces 61.4hp at the rear-wheel.  Sounds like fun!  The Supermono rev’s to 10750rpm, is fitted with Weber fuel injection, and accelerates to 120 just as fast as a 600 inline-four and tops out at a claimed 141mph.  All this magic is achieved through Ducati’s heavy used of carbon fiber and magnesium wherever possible.  The bodywork, subframe, fuel tank, and air box are all carbon with the case covers, triple clamp and other bits being finished in magnesium.  The suspension is all top-of-the-line Ohlins units with 42mm USD forks sourced from the 888 Corsa and a cantilevered Ohlins shock out back.  The exhaust is a Termignoni unit and the wheels are Marchesini magnesium units.  The motor is essentially a 888 single cylinder with a dummy connecting rod to cancel-out the traditional vibrations of a single.

Jay informed me that Farracci had one of these in ’93 with an asking price of $35k and everyone laughed as it was the same price as the 916/955 race bike at the time; and eight years ago these were going for $50k.  The current asking price of $70k USD suggest that it’s probably doing better than your CD that’s been chugging along since 2000–and this one’s much better to look at too.  The series may have not be a world success but, it did bring us a very cool, and very rare, piece of Ducati machinery.  Hurry though, as this bike only has half a day for you decide if it’s worth $85k AUD to you!  If it interests you, have a look at this example on eBay Australia

Honda CBR150R Repsol Replica In Idaho

This is a very nice looking CBR150R Repsol bike located in Idaho!  Located in Boise, Idaho is a CBR150R with 7,000mi–possibly km.  The seller isn’t too descriptive, he doesn’t even state that it’s a CBR but, it’s still one located in the U.S.  The seller does state that it is in showroom condition but, doesn’t have a title.  The asking price of $2,000 should be a little flexible as it’ll take some work for the buyer to get a title.  Also, don’t be led to believe that it’s a simple procedure that you just need to fill a form out for, you should have done this before unless you’re willing to be possibly defeated.  See this example on Craigslist here.

Honda CBR125R For Cheap In North Carolina

This CBR125R is in the U.S. and pretty cheap!  Located in Morrisville, North Carolina is a Honda CBR125R with 3,500 miles.  Now, let’s just be straight, the seller doesn’t mention the year of the bike and this bike has a Canadian title and current registration, there are also no photos in the ad.  The asking price of $1,500 is realistic for an Canadian registered bike in the U.S.  Now, this bike could be an easy project for someone who has done this before as I would expect this bike to be around $2,500–or more–with U.S. registration depending on condition.  But, if you’re looking at this bike, be realistic if you can actually complete this project or not.

The CBR125R has been produced since 2004.  It features a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single with just over 13hp and weighs in just under 300lbs.  These replaced the two-stroke NSR125 line.  The first iteration was from 2004-2006 with the current look being introduced in 2007 with both models resembling the CBR600RR.  The ’04-’06 bikes are equipped with carburetors and the ’07+ bikes have electronic fuel injection (PGM-IV) and have some other changes to more closely resemble the CBR1000RR.

See a post we had for some 2008 CBR125R’s available in the U.S. here.  I’ve also included two photos from that post but, they are NOT of the bike currently for sale!  See the Craigslist post for the one in NC here.

Moriwaki MD250H single cylinder race bike for sale

Brand new limited production Moriwaki MD250H single cylinder race bike for sale on ebay.

Now we’ve seen our share of special bikes for sale here around RSBFS, but thanks to a tip off from our reader Mike, here’s a truly unique oppourtunity – :

This is a New Honda Moriwaki being offered for sale at our Honda Powerstore. This is a Limited Production Full Race Ready Motorcycle. Being a Race Bike, this bike cannot be financed by conventional means, so you will have to have your financing or cash ready. We can paint this bike any color that you want, at an additional cost.

Last year, American Honda and Moriwaki Engineering had announced the availability of a limited number of MD250H racebikes. The bike was meant for young racers who wanted to take part in the USGPRU roadracing series.

An exquisite piece of engineering, the Mroiwaki MD250H is fitted with a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 249cc engine from Honda. Also used in the Honda CRF250X, this engine is specially tuned and fettled by Moriwaki, for the MD250H.

The MD250H is a serious bit of equipment, a proper small-bore GP bike. Custom fabricated twin-spar aluminum chassis, radial-mount calipers for the front disc brake, USD fork, Honda’s Pro-Link rear suspension, lightweight wheels, race-spec tyres and works-style welded aluminum fuel tank – the MD250H is pure racer all the way.

Who’s Moriwaki? They are the legendary Japanese tuning firm which is to Honda what Yoshimura is to Suzuki, and probably best know for its Honda V5-powered MD211VF MotoGP bike which campaigned in 2004.  For more info on the MD250H and the related race series, click HERE and HERE.

The power output of the CRF250X lump won’t win any drag races, but housed in the tiny 125 GP size chassis, the whole package makes for a super light bike with brilliant handling and decent power to weight ratio – not to mention cheaper running costs then a highly strung 2 stroke engine.  I bet this thing would be more fun around the track than wringing the neck off a 600cc super sport!

1995 Ducati Supermono (drool!) 572cc w/ 0 miles!

1995 Ducati Supermono for sale and is listed as having 0 miles!

This is almost unbelievable, because these are as elusive as those Snipe things they told us about at camp. This super rare Supermono is located in Italy and is Mike, located in Scotland, turned me on to this rare bird first thing this morning. Talk about excited, I had a grin from ear to ear all day just thinking about what a rare opportunity this is. Currently there is a bid of 25,100 pounds, which equates to $40,882.92 usd, and the reserve is still on. I can’t begin to tell you the correct valuation on this bike. Hopefully, one of you will be able to shed some light on what these are worth. My guess is that it is going to take a whole lot more than the current $40,000.00 to buy this one.

Ducati only built 65 of these over the course of a three year span from 1993 to 1995 and then two more were built between 1996 and 1997. This one shows #14 on the triple clamp badge and is said to be #59 of the 67 that were ever produced. The 1995 model’s were made to 572cc vs the previous years 550cc motor’s. Some of the articles I read, while doing research for this model, said that the 572’s are more desireable becaue they were more refined and tested vs. the earlier models. At a mere 277 wet #’s and pumping out 61hp, I bet these things would rail around the track. The top speed was said to be 141mph, but I have to believe they could easily do better with a jockey sized rider and a few modifications.


1995 Brand new and possibly the only new one left in the world. It’s number 59 and the 14th one produced in 1995 so that means it’s one of just 25 of the 572CC models produced and comes with it’s certificate of origin. Only 67 Supermono’s were ever built which makes it one of the most sought after and collectable Ducati’s ever, this really is a once in a life time chance to own a new one…..Open to offers.

I did find an older add listing one of these for sale and the price was 115,000, but I couldn’t find anything about the article such as where it was located and a date for the article. So if you know what it is worth please let us know.

Here is a great video that lets you hear what a pure racing 570 single sounds like.

In this next video watch how quickly the rider flicks the Supermono from side to side. It looks effortless in every corner. By the way, go ahead and turn up your volume before you watch it so you can hear a different kind Ducati music.

For some people these are the rarest Ducati’s ever produced and I can’t blame those who think so. I know Ducati makes a LE every year, but this is one LE I think they should make every year and let the general public have a chance.
