Well Preserved – 1982 BMW R65LS

In Germany, Less than 5k, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This R65LS sold for $4,999 after 19 bids on eBay. Between 1983 and 1985, BMW built a limited edition of their R65. Called the R65LS, it featured a polarizing front fairing that probably makes the bike look faster than the bike actually was. I dig the 80s look…you may not. Whether or not you care for the …

1988 Suzuki GSX-R250

In Japan, Sport by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

The GSX-R has a long history in the sport bike world, raising the bar time and time again. Their legacy is so great, I even bought an SRAD GSX-R750 myself. The GSX-R250 is one of the lesser known displacements. I myself have only seen this one, and didn’t know these four cylinder screamers even existed. Suzuki launched a new GSX250R …

1995 Triumph Daytona Super III

In England, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

11-2-18 Update: This Super III is back up for sale with a lowered BIN to $5,250 here on eBay. Post Listing Update: This Daytona did not get any interest at the BIN of $6,250. This is one of the pricier Super IIIs I’ve seen, though that may because it’s in great shape, it’s got low mileage, and it comes with …

Museum Condition – 1998 Honda VFR800

In Japan, Sport by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This VFR did not get any interest at the opening ask of $4,800. The improvements made to the redesigned 1998 Honda VFR800 resulted in a capable successor to the outgoing VFR750, worthy of bearing the Honda name and sharing the VFR moniker. It just took several years to be appreciated, being that Honda riders were upset that …

2003 Triumph Daytona 955i

In England, Sport by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Daytona did not get any interest at the opening ask of $2,995. According to Bennetts, the Triumph Daytona 955i was a ballsy attempt to go toe to toe with Hondas Fireblade. Ultimately, the Fireblade was the better bike, and the Daytona 955i was never going to match Yamaha R1 performance on its platform of the time. …

New Magni Model – 2019 MV Agusta 750S Tributo

In Italy, Sport by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

Boutique Italian outfit the Magni Company has just unveiled its latest model, the “MV Agusta 750S Tributo”. As the name suggests, the new three-cylinder two-wheeler was created as a tribute to the iconic 1970s three-quarter-liter MV. While the Tributo admittedly looks strikingly similar to the original 750S, the new Magni boasts the performance and reliability one would expect from a …

One Owner – 2009 Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

In 2004, Aprilia updated their flagship liter bike to create the RSV 1000 R – an excellent option for riders demanding a street-legal track weapon with some rarity. For even more performance, the Italian firm offered a “Factory” model which included carbon fiber bodywork, fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, and forged aluminum wheels. Though it was exquisite, fast, and beautiful, it …

Ex-Slater Brothers Isle of Man TT – Laverda Formula 500

In Italy, Sport by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

In 1977 Laverda debuted the 500cc Zeta, or the Alpino as it was known in the UK (after originally being dubbed the “Alpina”, BMW supposedly took issue with the moniker hence it was changed to “Alpino”). The half-liter two-wheeler was powered by an air-cooled, 497cc, DOHC, four-stroke, 180-degree parallel-twin married to a wet clutch and six-speed transmission. The Zeta’s mill …

Restomod – 1983 Suzuki Katana GS1100

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This Katana sold for $7,600 after 21 bids on eBay. The Suzuki Katana is a very distinctive bike designed by Hans Muth (the fairing might remind you of a similar Muth creation – the BMW R65LS). In the late 70s and early 80s, Japanese manufacturers were selling standard bikes as fast as they could make them.  And …

No Reserve – 1966 Velocette Thruxton

In England, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Thruxton was pulled off of eBay due to “an error in the listing”. In 1961, the Velocette Venom set a 24 hour speed record – that records still stands for a 500cc bike. 3 years later, the Venom won its class at Thruxton’s 500 mile endurance race. The next year, the Venom gained the Thruxton name …

1972 Honda CB750

In Japan, Sport by Mathieu Guyot-SionnestLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This CB750 sold for a best offer of $6,000 on eBay. If I had to put a starting year on modern motorcycling, it would most likely be 1969. If I had to put an end year to European (and particularly) British supremacy on the motorcycle market, it would probably be 1969. Finally, if I had to designate …

No Reserve – 1995 Triumph Daytona Super III

In England, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Super III was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown. Considering that just 179 of the 805 Triumph Super IIIs ever built made it to the US, I see a surprising amount of them for sale. What’s also surprising for a bike this rare is how cheap they can be snapped up for. In fact, …
