Description

Additional photos of this 2006 Bimota SB8K Santamonica are available here for your perusal.

In this 2006 First Ride on Motorcyclist, Brian Catterson notes that he had first been given the opportunity to ride the SB8K in 2000, but the next morning at WSBK in Misano, “the Bimota truck was nowhere to be seen. Drowning in debt from its failed Vdue two-stroke project, the company had gone out of business.

The SB8K Santamonica (named after the race track now called Misano), was the successor to the SB8R, and it had tremendous potential – Catterson noted that “what I would have written back in 2000, had there been a point, was that the SB8K was the best twin-cylinder sportbike I’d ever ridden; more than a match for the reigning Ducati 996 and miles better than the rotary-shocked Suzuki TL1000R from which its engine was derived.”

Bimota claimed 143 horsepower and a dry weight of just 385 pounds for the SB8K, but by the time it was actually released the design was nearly a decade old and bikes like the Ducati 999 had surpassed the Bimota dynamically. And the price point didn’t help – MSRP was a staggering $45,900, $15k more than a 999R. As you’d expect, the components were top notch – Ohlins 43mm forks and monoshock, radially mounted Brembo brakes, OZ forged wheels, and ample carbon fiber.

This example is VIN: ZESS8996X6R000010, Engine #: T504-113287. The seller sold it to a friend in 2008 who put 1 mile on it and kept it on display. He then re-acquired it from that friend recently and rode it for a mile two days ago.

The odometer shows 119 miles.

Modifications:
The tank has been lined.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller notes “some nicks from storage.”




During his ownership, the seller has had the oil changed and installed a new battery. He adds that there are no known mechanical issues.

The sale includes the owner’s manual, two keys, a sales brochure, and the cover.

Currently located in Rancho Cucamonga, California, this Bimota is offered on a clean California title with registration current through January 2022.
