The last word in 1990s Italian superbike exotica, the Bimota SB6 used one of Japan's finest engines, that of the Suzuki GSX-R1100, which was installed in the Rimini firm's trademark 'Straight Connection Technology' aluminium beam frame. Modified by Bimota using their own camshafts and under-seat exhaust system, the 'Gixxer' motor produced a claimed 156bhp, around 11 horsepower more than the stock GSX-R1100. Complementing this were some of the finest cycle parts available, including Paioli 46mm cartridge forks, fully adjustable Öhlins shock, Brembo brakes, 17" magnesium wheels and plentiful carbon fibre. At 473lbs (wet), the SB6 weighed about 60lbs less than the contemporary GSX-R1100W and its handling was in a different league altogether. Its top speed of around 175mph also bettered the 'Gixxer's. Including the later SB6R model, 1,744 SB6s were manufactured in total, making it one of the most successful Bimotas ever despite a 1998 UK asking price of £17,460. This SB6R was first registered on 1st March 2000 and has covered approximately 8,000 miles from new. Described as in generally good condition, the machine is offered with sales brochure, instruction books, alarm certificate, partial service history, dynamometer printout (maximum power 147.2bhp at 9,809rpm), three expired MoTs (most recent 13th April 2012), original Swansea V5 and most recent V5C documents.
