Here is a chance to own a very special motorcycle. It is one thing when a World Superbike racing machine comes up for sale, because you know that it will be dripping with all the right parts, and have a pedigree to match.

But, it is an entirely different thing when the bike was raced by a rider as loved as Nicky Hayden still is by his legion of fans.

Put those two things together, and you have today’s opportunity, which is Nicky Hayden’s 2017 Ten-Kate spec Honda CBR1000RR SP2 WorldSBK race bike. The ultimate collectors bike, you will need €95.000 in your bank account to make it your own.

For sale from Ten Kate itself, the machine has matching chassis and engine numbers, matching ECU and electronics numbers, and is a matching chassis build-up. The bike is set to the exact specification that Nicky Haden used on the track.

The full build list is as follows:

  • 𝙀𝙣𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚: TKR / Cosworth engine kit
  • 𝙀𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙞𝙘𝙨: Cosworth package with TKR fly-by-wire system*
  • 𝙎𝙪𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣: Öhlins WSBK spec
  • 𝘽𝙧𝙖𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜: Nissin WSBK spec calipers & Yutaka discs
  • 𝘾𝙝𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙨: Aluminium braced
  • 𝙎𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙖𝙧𝙢: TKR / GPMS (Hayden spec)
  • 𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙨: Marchesini
  • 𝙀𝙭𝙝𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙩: Akrapovic WSBK spec

*The full electronic package on this bike is developed and built in-house in collaboration with Cosworth, the special TKR fly-by-wire system is also developed and built in-house.

Ten Kate lists the bike as in “absolute showroom state” though the machine is a runner, and ready for track duty, should you so desire. The Dutch racing outfit will also issue a certificate of authenticy with the sale of the Honda, and it will come with a full package and parts sold by Ten-Kate Racing

For more info on the bike please contact Kervin Bos at Ten Kate Racing: k.bos@tenkateracing.com.

UPDATE: The Superleggera has been taken off the market.

Did you miss your chance to get a Ducati 1199 Superleggera? Were you not one of the chosen few Ducatisti who were whisked away to Bologna, wined and dined on carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium? Did you just not have $65,000 last year to plunk down on Bologna’s ultimate superbike?

Have no fear, despite the Superleggera basically selling out before it was even publicly debuted, there is hope for collectors and enthusiasts to own this magnificient machine…but it’s going to cost you.

Available on eBay is a 0 miles, straight-from-the-crate brand new, corse-painted Superleggera (#123 of 500). The catch? It’s being offered for a cool $85,000 — $20k over MSRP.
