Well, this is just about one of the coolest motorcycles I’ve ever been able to share on Bike-urious, and I didn’t even know it existed until reader Simon P sent it over. Based on a Yamaha FZ750, this is the D10, a futuristic concept bike designed by a Swiss company called Moko/Powa Design. According to the seller, 10 examples were made and this is one of just 6 that remain.
The bike was designed by Hans Walther and the bodywork was built to cut through the wind – improving gas mileage and reducing wind noise. When the bike was first presented at IFMA in Zurich, it was apparently bestowed with the nickname of “Whistler Bike.”
This example was originally just used as a show bike, but a motorcycle dealership in Paris eventually titled the bike in 2000 and the odometer now shows 2,671 miles (4,300 kilometers). In 2015 it got a full service, so it’s hopefully ready to go. Find this rare French Yammie for sale in St. Vincent de Tyrosse, France with bidding up to $4,358 and the reserve not yet met here on Catawiki. Note that the seller is looking for someone that will pick the bike up, and that the auctioneer’s estimate is that this will sell between $21,790 and $28,330.
