This one of a kind bike was specifically built for the development of the RMD Billet Girder Front End. Based off a 2005 R1 this bike was fit with the RMD Girder that sets the bike with stock trail (3.5"), stock rake (24 degrees) and a half inch longer than stock wheelbase (55.5"). Girder legs were machined completely out of 6061 aluminum billets and provides zero bump steer through corners, zero front end dive under braking, and is solid as a freight train at high speeds. Girder front ends inherently decrease the bikes overall flickability and you will notice it in quick LH/RH, and vise versa, combinations...but you will learn the front end just as you did the conventional USD front end. Uses a singular Penske Shock. RMD Billet Deviant 17" Wheels, 120 Front, 190 Rear. Brand spanking new Bridgestone Battleax rubber. RMD Billet Front Rotors with Brembo Cal! ipers, Galfer SS lines and stock Brembo M/C. Braking Wave Rear Rotor with stock Nissin caliper, Galfer SS line and stock Brembo M/C.Boxed swingarm. Stock rear shock. Single Penske shock on the Girder. Motor is stock. -1 front sprocket. Exhaust is chopped, wrapped and baffled. Deep sound, not obnoxious. I've heard many louder aftermarket pipes. Subframe chopped with stock taillight frenched in. Pro Taper bars are positioned to seat the rider at the stock riding position. CRG levers and mirrors. Rizoma grips and throttle. Custom R1E rearsets. Braided SS hoses. HD V-Rod headlight. Blinkers front and rear are activated by flush mounted PB switches in the bars. Hidden ignition and PB start. No speedo or gauges. This bike has an estimated 180 hp at the crank (manufacturers spec) and weighs in at around 400lbs with under 7,000 miles. Was used mostly for girder front end and wheel development and testing. Has been featured in two European magazines and is curre! ntly being shot for U.S. mag submissions. Has been featured o! n numero us moto related websites and was featured in the Yamaha manufacturers marketplace at 3 consecutive MotoGP events. This is NOT a showbike or trailer queen. It has wear and tear as any normal 5 year old bike would. It is insanely popular, fast and maneuverable, making it very fun.
Asking 15K.
