Description

Additional photos of this Bimota SB6R are available here for your perusal.

The Bimota SB6R was an uprated version of the SB6, Bimota’s most popular bike – though for a niche Italian manufacturer, “popular” is a relative term (only 600 units were produced). The SB6R was only produced from 1997-1998, and in many eyes it’s the pinnacle of classic Bimota motorcycles – brutal power from a Japanese engine with the style of an Italian chassis. In typical Italian fashion, you had to pay to play…even back in 1997, this bike would set you back $35,000!

The “S” of SB6R tells you that the engine for this bike came from Suzuki. Specifically, it was yanked from the Suzuki GSXR-1100 of the time. With Bimota-developed camshafts, it produced 156 horsepower and could propel the bike to a top speed of 175 miles per hour. It also came with some of the best components available at the time – Paoli suspension, Brembo brakes, and Marchesini wheels and more.

This example (VIN: ZESSB6008VR000028) is one of over thirty motorcycles that we are auctioning off from the Alan Wilzig collection over the next couple of weeks. Alan acquired it in 2006 from a private party in Colorado.

During Alan’s ownership, this bike has not been ridden and has only been on display. The odometer shows 4,629 miles.

In preparation for the listing, Alan had us prove that the bike runs (please see the video up top). If the next owner wants to ride this SB6R, it will need a carb clean, battery, full fluid flush, and new tires.

Modifications:
This Bimota appears to be completely stock.

Cosmetic Blemishes:




Inside of the tank:
