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

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
