1997 BIMOTA YB11 Superleggera
This beautiful machine is part of a wonderful collection of Italian Superbikes. These bikes are owned by a friend who is 70 years young, nd he has reluctantly decided to sell off some of them. He's not computer savvy, o he asked if I would list the bikes for him as a favor, nd we decided to list them individually rather than listing all the bikes at one time.
This Bimota was recently serviced and a new battery installed. It starts immediately and runs strong, ith a wonderful exhaust note. This bike is close to mint condition and the cosmetics look extremely nice. I could not find any issues to note other than a few tiny blemishes that are too small to photograph. It is evident that this bike has led a very pampered life. Buyer will be extremely happy with this bike - no unwelcome surprises!iny blemishes too small to photograph.
A fantastic piece of exotica for the rider or collector. Please check out my other auctions for more interesting bikes. I'll be listing a Bimota SB8R, Laverda 750S Formula, nd a super rare Nico Bakker "Barracuda" soon.
Good luck, nd let's complete this transaction like gentlemen-

The Bimota YB11 first appeared in 1996, nd was powered by a 1002 cc 4-cylinder from the Yamaha YZF1000R.
The Bimota YB11 was based around a twin spar frame carried forward from the previous YB8 superbike. The suspension was handled by Paioli forks up front, hile braking came courtesy of Brembo calipers.
The styling of the Bimota YB11 was greatly upgraded from the the YB8, nd incorporated flowing panels with a single headlight unit. At the rear an interchangable seat unit allowed for either a race-style single seat, r an additional passenger seat.
