Today is the Friday after Thanksgiving, which means many of you awoke from your food coma, and headed to the stores for Black Friday start to your Christmas shopping.
That is right, the holiday season is upon us, and that means that we should be publishing some sort of Holiday Gift Guide for you, where we pretend to be journalists while taking a small commission from the links we funnel you towards.
It is a sad practice, and one that fills our inbox around this time of year. I wonder how many hundreds of dollars are traded for whatever last scrap of journalism that remains in this industry…it’s probably best not to think about it.
Don’t worry, we have a remedy. A real item you would want to have in your garage, and it is not some garbage tire pressure gauge from a company that bought a bunch of advertising from us this year.
This is a superbike. A real superbike. A WorldSBK-spec Honda CBR1000RR SP2 superbike. It is one of the Triple M Honda CBR1000RR SP2 superbikes that PJ Jacobsen raced in the 2018 World Superbike Championship.
This is perhaps the closest you can get to being a WorldSBK racer, and it comes with a unique provenance. The engine is of Ten Kate spec, built and developed by Cosworth. The gearbox is made by HRC, with electronics from Magneti Marelli.
The bodywork is all carbon fiber, and other bits and bobs come from Öhlins, Nissin, Suter, OZ Racing, STM, SC-Project, etc.
We hear the price tag is around €40,000…and wee don’t get a penny if you buy it, and that is just fine by us.
