Post Listing Update: Not surprisingly, this custom CBR did not get any interest at the opening bid of $49,999.
The Honda CBR900RR is an excellent motorcycle that completely changed the definition of a sportbike in the early 90s. But this example isn’t notable for its performance on the road – it’s value comes from the bodywork that’s been painted by Andrew Witten, a NYC graffiti artist known as Zephyr. The seller states that this bike is the third in a series of motorcycles he collaborated on, including the Keith Haring Honda Hurricane in 1987 which was recently at the Petersen Museum.
This example has 16,103 miles, and that’s the extent of the mechanical information that the seller provides. I assume this bike will not be ridden again, as it’s now art for people with a particular sense of style. Still, the bike was given a recent service and is said to run great, so you could turn this into one of the fastest pieces of art the world has ever seen, if you wish. Thanks to the Yoshimura exhaust, it could treat both the eyes and the ears.
