1990 Bimota YB9 aSR

Description

Founded in Italy in 1973 by three giants of the motorcycle industry Bianchi, Morri and Tamburini, hence the name BI-MO-TA, the company specialised in producing bespoke motorcycles based around their own frame designs using engines from existing manufacturers. Initially set up as a race shop their innovative light weight frame designs soon found their way to street bikes renowned for fantastic handling and high quality, using the best brakes, forks and engines available. Unfortunately manufacturing issues and the steep retail price plagued the companies history with bankruptcies and supply problems forcing the bikes out of favour in the late 1990’s.

The confusing Bimota models are actually easily identified The first letter stands for the manufacturer of the engine, the second letter stands for Bimota, and the last is the serial number, so H is Honda, Y is Yamaha and S is Suzuki and so on. The Yamaha FZR600 powered YB9 is one of the best bikes they produced, only 651 examples were made, lithe handling, sharp braking a masterpiece on wheels. probably the best 600cc sports bike of its generation. This example immaculate example is showing 22,439 kms and is in great running order. Fitted with new spark plugs it has a UK MoT until November 2016 and comes with Italian registration documents.
