I know we’ve been on a real Bimota tear recently and here’s another! Hope you’re enjoying the selection of these newly available exotics!
quote from seller’s listing:
This 1997 YB11 Superleggera has a Clean Title in hand and has never been wrecked or dropped. It has a few small scratches and is 7 or 8 out of 10. This bike is Rare, Red, (Superlight) and in great runing shape. It has 11,050 original Miles. It has a new Battery (purchased 2 months ago and is on a tender), just changed oil (2nd time with only putting 150 miles since purchased two years ago) This Bike has a 1000cc Yamaha YZF1000R engine from the factory with over 150hp and has a dry weight of 403.4 pounds. When it was purchased it came with many upgrades and has a box of stock parts. I owned two other bikes (which I’ve sold) that I rode more often and didnt ride this one for that reason.
I have to sell it because I need to keep my house!
Phil knows far more about these bikes than I do, so hopefully he’ll give us some background on this model. From my limited perspective, $5800 sounds like a great deal on an exotic you can actually ride and enjoy. Not to mention I have a strange weakness for the Thunderace and with it’s motor in this chassis, I’m especially intrigued.
Someone help this guy stay in his house and take the Bimota off his hands!
