W$$ Aspirations? 2009 Factory Triumph 675

W$$ Aspirations?  2009 Factory Triumph 675

Here is the cure, if you have the itch to test the waters of WSS racing.  I’m assuming that would apply to almost no RSBFS readers (we can dream though) but I’m sure there might be a race bike collector or two that might be interested.  This little 675 isn’t cheap though.  The starting bid is $150,000 and the BIN price is $200,000.  Yikes, is that what it costs to run mid pack in WSS ?  Now time for me to get on my soap box.  I don’t know if that price is reasonable for a WSS race bike or not.  What I do know is that for a bike of that price you have to advertise the darn thing correctly. 

There is this from the auction:

I AM CURRENTLY ONLY OFFERING THIS (1) PICTURE OF THE BIKE DUE TO THIS PIC HAS ALREADY BEEN RELEASED IN THE NATIONAL PRESS RELEASES AND I DONT WISH TO RELEASE OTHER PHOTOS AT THIS TIME.

What?  This isn’t the Holy Grail.  This isn’t even a championship winning bike.  It is a very nice race bike that I’m sure a lot of people would love to own. For that asking price show us some darn pictures of what she’s got.  I was expecting some serious race bike porn when I came across this auction!  In the sellers defense there is a lot of text info on what has been done to the bike.  It’s a  lengthy text so you’ll have to check out the auction for all the details. 

Ian is here to hook you up though.  I found some BE1 Racing test footage from 08.  Not exactly the same bike but should be pretty close.

And here is a link to a Flickr account with a bunch of photos of the team and bike.

Now wrapped up in this whole auction is something about a charity event and the bike being donated for the event.  My weary brain can’t quite figure out what exactly is up.  If you can figure it out feel free to post in the comments.  .

  • This is the best laugh I’ve had in a long time.. God that’s funny. Let me see if I have this right. I get a 4Th place WSS bike ridden by Chad Davies (who cares) and connected to “Sir” Richard Bransen to support a charity supporting young American people in need and Moroccan women for a mere $150,000.00. ??? Where’s my check book? They should contact the seller of the 02 MHE 900 asking $1,000,000.00 or the King of Egypt…Oops they froze his bank account, I forgot…sorry. Better yet, have them call me and they can sell my Ducati for me.

  • Quite possibly the most confusing, disjointed write up ever on ebay !
    How many different font sizes and combinations of bold and underlined does someone need to use in a single advert ?

    Also not sure on relevance of the charity event on 11 November 2010 last year….

    AFU !

  • that made my head hurt.

  • They lost me at “THE WORLD FAMOUS CHAZ DAVIES (who?) BIKE!”

    Meh.

  • If youre into motorcycle racing you’d know Chaz Davies. No big deal though. The seller is obviously out of touch, and very entertaining. Rich people have always been boring and theyve always been in charge.

  • Let me back up a little. First, Chad is a very good rider and did some good work in the AMA a few years ago but is not a “world famous” caliber guy. “The English” should be proud of what Triumph has done in many areas but they should should be embarrassed by whoever wrote this. My advice to the author is to never post anything on the Internet while intoxicated and to never, never start biding on EBAY…Don’t ask me how I know.
