The S1KRR is undeniably one of the most competent track machines currently available. Even the previous generations boast a seriously impressive electronics suite that fools riders like myself into thinking we’re better than we actually are. As with any premium European superbike, the S1000RR comes at a steep price, and buying a stock example to transform into a trackday bike becomes even more expensive. This example definitely isn’t for everyone, but if someone’s looking for a modern track-only bike, this one’s a steal and a half.

The stock 2013 BMW superbike is a remarkable machine that performs superbly, but that’s bolstered by this example supposedly wearing over $6,000 in aftermarket upgrades. The parts list includes GP brand front suspension, rear Penske racing mono-shock, Brembo RCS 19 master cylinder, full titanium Yoshimura R77 Exhaust, Brock’s clutch basket mod, Power Commander 5 with a switch to go from race fuel map to pump gas map, and more.

Wrapped around the bike’s legendary inline-four and chassis is a HotBodies race fairing that’s been hit with a custom coat of red, white, and blue gloss paint, and a set of Driven Zero degree Adjustable Clip-On’s round out the listed mods to this German liter-bike which is reported to “Dyno in at 206 to the wheel on race fuel.” A stock factory set of red, white, and blue BMW plastics that this example originally wore are still included with the sale along with the mirrors, lights, and passenger pillion.

What makes this example special is its price, but the reason it’s so affordable is largely because it would cost roughly two grand to register this Beemer for road-use. Even if you invest the two-grand in registering this example for the street, it still comes out to several thousand dollars cheaper than buying a 2013 S1K double-R at the bike’s normal going rate. Countless other examples of this same model and year have asking prices of more than double that of this example. The odo on this bike is at 16,353 miles, and most of the bike appears to be pretty clean. There really isn’t much more to say about this one, it’s an awesome bike and an equally awesome price, any lower and I’d start getting suspicious.

You can find this bargain of a 2013 BMW S1000RR track bike for sale here on Craigslist in Los Angeles, California with a ridiculously low price of only $5,500.
