2006 Yamaha 50th Anniversary R1

False alarm- Thanks to everyone who has set me straight on this model.

2006 Yamaha LE 50th Anniversary R1

Location: New Haven, IN
Price: $6,850.00 B.I.N. (!)
Mileage: 13,623

So…. I know I’ll probably catch some ‘stuff’ for posting this one when there are better ones to be had. But, I always like finding a “gem in the rough” and I think this one fits that category quite well. We usually see these floating around for sale in the $12,000 to $13,000 range, but this one is being offered at almost half the super low mileage LE’s we’ve previously had on RSBFS. I think this is an absolute steal for this bike and I have a sneaky suspicion as to why it might still be for sale. It is listed on ebay as a 2006 Honda Shadow Yamaha R1.

In case you’re wondering about the seller it appears they are on the up and up, but they just placed this one in the wrong category.

Have a look:

For Sale 2006 Yamaha R1 LE 50th Anniversary Edition With the Marchesini mag rims runs and rides great only thing i can find wrong is a small scratch on the right side of the upper fairing and a small crack in the tail that are very hard to see

to see this one.

Okay, so you’re not down with a high mileage collectible rider. I also found this listed on ebay as well.

Cheers!

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition #220 Of 500 With 425 Miles In New York

This R1, Limited Edition, shows only 425 miles and an asking price of only $10,995.  Located in Brooklyn, New York is a 2006 YZF-R1 Limited Edition #200 of 500 with 425 original miles.  This bike isn’t completely stock as it features CRG gold levers, Scott’s damper, Vortex no-cut frame sliders, Double Bubble dark smoke windscreen, fender eliminator and flush mount turn signals.  We’ve seen a few of these in the sub-1k mile club and this one has been the cheapest, I would say as a reflection of the modifications but, I’d doubt it.  This one is priced at $10,995.  You can see the other LE’s we’ve posted here.  It doesn’t have super cheap additions but, at this mileage, the somewhat detract from a completely stock bike.  These were special limited edition, homologation, bikes featuring Marchesini wheels, Ohlins suspension, frame changes, longer swingarm, slipper clutch and some other bits; see the period review here.  If you’d be interested in a slightly modified R1 LE with little miles or, a low mile R1 with enough aftermarket bits to pay for returning it back to stock, see this bike on Craigslist here.

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition With Less Than 100 Original Miles

This is another R1 Limited Edition with insanely low miles!  Located in Mission Viejo, California is a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition with less than 100 original miles.  For condition the seller states “Never been washed or exposed to the sun. It’s been under a cover in my garage since new.”  That’s a bit of an embellishment as it is in the sun for the pictures but that’s nit-picking!  I don’t doubt this bike is in fantastic condition as it has only had to fend off lawn mowers and old furniture in it’s short life.  The asking price is $13,500.  The price is high but it isn’t completely outrageous as the other LE’s we’ve seen were listed for $11,995 and $12,995 respectively.  These bikes are amazing performers and come outfitted from the factory better than any other production R1 that we’ve seen in the U.S.  See this shining example on Craigslist here.
