To support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids, Iconic Motorbikes is auctioning three Repsol-edition CBR1000RR sport bikes donated by American Honda from their private collection. The sale price of this auction goes to the PBTF to support research and family programs for children battling brain tumors.
These special-edition Repsol models were originally offered by Honda as tributes to the factory MotoGP team, for whom the global multi-energy company has been the title sponsor since 1995. This 2007 Repsol Honda CBR1000RR was released following Nicky Hayden’s 2006 MotoGP title. Also being auctioned are 2005 and 2009 versions.
The nation’s longest-running charitable motorcycle ride, Ride for Kids takes place on September 12 at different locations across the country. For the full list, and to register, visit www.rideforkids.org.

With bodywork inspired by the RC211V, line-beam headlight, and under-tail exhaust, the first 998cc CBR-RR more than looked the business. In 2005, Honda took things one step further and released the iconic Repsol Edition model.
The eighth generation of the RR (2nd generation of the CBR1000RR) was produced in 2006 and 2007, and MCN summed it up thusly: “Every once in a while a sportster comes along that is just right. The 2006 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is one of those machines. It delivers polished, glitch-free 180mph potency with almost no effort and yet blends this not just with the expected Honda build quality and class, but also a fat, hum-dinger, wheelie-pulling midrange that makes it more sheer fun than any since the 92 original Honda Fireblade. The latest Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is quite simply a class act.”
As it goes with progress, you got more power, less weight, and better handling. Upgrades included a higher compression ratio, double springs for the intake valves (which were given more lift), a higher redline, bigger front brakes, lighter swingarm, and a new front fairing design. The MotoGP-replica Repsol livery also returned, and in 2007 it got an extra dash of red across the nose, just like the bikes of Hayden and Pedrosa.
Manufactured in February of 2007, this example is VIN: JH2SC57497M300989.
The odometer shows zero miles, with 0.1 miles on the trip meter.
There are no modifications – the bike is as new and is still equipped with the original Pirelli Diablo Corsa tires with date codes of 4206 and 4406.
We cannot find any blemishes of note.
