Announcement! RSBFS is now a Supporter of the Moto Forza Veloce Racing Aprilia Race Team!

Just a quick announcement before we hit the road for WSBK at Miller Motorsport Park: RSBFS is now a proud supporter of the Moto Forza Veloce Racing Aprilia Race Team! Jay is not only an author on our site, but is also a member of the team and was able to arrange for our partnership. The team is going to be competing this weekend at the Lucas Oil Superbike Challenge At Miller and we can’t wait to join them. Thank you Jay!

Moto Forza Team Veloce Aprilia 250

Here is the press release on RoadRacingWorld about the team at Miller:

Moto Forza, Southern California’s premier Italian motorcycle dealership, and renowned Aprilia racing outfit Veloce Racing of Portland, Oregon are joining forces to field 2007 and 2008 USGPRU champion Nobi Iso in the GTU class of the Superbike Challenge during the WSBK weekend at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah, May 28 – 31.

Nobi Iso will compete on an Aprilia RSV250, owned by Moto Forza and race prepped by Veloce Racing. Continuing Aprilia’s strong tradition of 2-stroke racing, this effort will most likely be the only 2-stroke entry in the entire field. While the altitude of Miller Motorsports Park may affect the power output of the small displacement engine, the lightness and superior handling of this Aprilia GP 250 machine should make up for the loss of power over the bigger 4-stroke machines.

Here is a quick overview of the USGPRU team and their recent 1-2 finish in the 125 races:

As I mentioned we are headed out bright and early this morning and will be there for all the qualifying and race action Sunday and Monday. The main event for the team will be the Supersport event where they’ll be fielding their 250 with the 600’s.

Stop by if you’re at Miller or drop us a note on the RSBFS Facebook page, where we’ll be doing some live blogging. Have a great weekend everyone and cheer on the team!

World SuperBike at Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City

RareSportBikesForSale.com is now a proud supporter of the Portland, Oregon based Team Veloce and we are going to Miller to cheer them on and soak up the incredible racing that is WSBK! Jay and Team Veloce will of course be there as early as Thursday, but Alex and Dan arrive Saturday and Sunday. If you’re going, let us know so we can plan a meet-up and share a few drinks after the racing!

MotoGP at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

I feel very fortunate to be able to attend this year’s MotoGP races at Indy! Doug and I will both be there and we’d like to make this first annual Rare SportBikes Meetup! We’re staying at the Westin downtown and are currently considering locations for an impromptu meetup. I’m buying the first round! Doug was there last year and tells me they close one of the main streets downtown and it’s reserved for motorcycle-only parking — and it’s packed! Stay tuned for more information on what we hope to make our annual gathering at Indy!


Facebook

If you’re on Facebook, join us on the official RSBFS Facebook page! You’ll never miss one of our listings and we get a better chance to talk more directly about the bikes, races, and your projects as well. Thanks to the over 100 fans that have already joined!


Press Attention

We’ve been mentioned twice this month on MCN, the world’s leading Motorcycle news magazine! This is an especially proud moment for me as I consider their publication top notch and a real honor to be mentioned. See this piece on their website about the Bimota Moto2 bikes for sale and this attached .pdf about the homogolation group for sale.


Planned New Features

RareSportBikes.com – Coming soon, this will be our new companion website. It will serve as the knowledge base to assist RSBFS readers when researching models for sale. We plan to author and accept guest entries to build a homegrown area that details not only the specifications, but the real history of the models, first hand accounts, and exclusive media like wallpapers and videos. This site will also have areas for reader submitted features, pictures and videos!

Price Guides – We’re building a database of asking prices and auction closes for the bikes we post on this site. In as little as 3-6 months, we’ll have some great data to work from in determining the best values in the used sportbike market. Please let us know if you spot amazing close prices, high or low, on eBay in particular so we can add these values to our database!


Thanks to everyone for your support and looking forward to making RSBFS better and better this summer!
