In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

The 1995 Honda CBR900RR doesn’t get as much love from fans as the first generation, even though it’s an improved bike. This specific example stands out because it comes with the cheeky “Urban Tiger” paint job that wasn’t available in the US. The seller tells a story that 200 bikes were accidentally brought to Canada, which is why this example …

In Dual-Sport, England by AbhiLeave a Comment

1991 Bimota YB8

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

It’s hard for me not to feature a good-condition Bimota, but the Bimota YB8 is a lovely find especially considering I just showed off the 400cc Japan-only YB7 a couple of days ago. YB8 = the 8th Bimota with a Yamaha engine, in this case a 1000cc EXUP engine which yielded 148 horsepower. I find it very weird to see …

The Moto Guzzi V700 Special was Guzzi’s first V-Twin. This specific example (VIN: 3352) has been with the current owner for 17 years, during which he has put just 1,000 miles on it.
