What is the current market values for the Supermono? I'm looking at a low mileage unit on eBay and would appreciate a reference point on pricing Smile

I guess they're worth what ever someone is willing to pay. Rarely see one up for sale really. That one on ebay does look in very good nick and low milage on the clock.

The only reference that i can offer you is this one for sale at the moment in Australia.

http://www.bikesales.com.au/private/SSE-AD-2570074/1996-Bimota-Supermono?cr=10&psq=((((SiloType%3D%5BDemo%20%26%20near%20new%20bikes%5D)%7C(SiloType%3D%5BDealer%20used%20bikes%5D))%7C(SiloType%3D%5BPrivate%20used%20bikes%5D))%26(Make%7B%3D%7D%5BBimota%5D))%26(Service%3D%5BBikesales%5D)&pso=0&pss=Premium

Currently a track bike but the ad says it comes with all original road gear as well.

mobile.de is a good place to look

http://suchen.mobile.de/motorrad/bimota.html?scopeId=MB&isSearchRequest=true&sortOption.sortBy=price.consumerGrossEuro&lang=de&makeModelVariant1.makeId=3400&damageUnrepaired=ALSO_DAMAGE_UNREPAIRED&ambitCountry=

a couple of Supermonos for sale now

The one in France looks like it's missing the tank??

The blue and silver YB11 would be my choice here.

good luck
Ian

Yikes.........that one in the US went for $8500..........heady price for the unloved BB1.....could be a business exporting the cheap ones from Europe...as 3-4K GBP is the norm price for these......

YB11 Silver Blue?? Tis nice..and a nice price...they have a tendency to fall over on left hand bends though Crankie Wink And you'd end up using spare levers and pegs to fix all the time........

Must have been the combination of the low miles, seller's trustworthiness and the relatively weak USD. The color probably helped the sale as well Wink

Much appreciated!

Not a weak dollar...more of a strong pound Laughing
I think they are all low miles if youd ridden one you'd know why...cost you more replacing fillings loosened than fuel... Very Happy

I read a review on the bb1 from quite a few years ago and it was fairly scathing. The test riders were far from impressed with anything about the bike. So, how bad are they?? I considdered (briefly) enquiring about the track bike that i linked above, but decided i have enough trouble now. The price put me off too.

Like yourself Brian...its all what I've heard or read...although BimotaNige does have one....Lovely things to look at...but Bimota decided to take out frame damping from engine to frame fix...so all vibes come through the pegs and bars...the clip ons are designed to have rubber pads around the forks so when you grab them you can feel them flex with the rubber pads...the footpegs also have double height rubbers in them to again try and sort the vibes out.........And then theres the petrol tank under the engine...keeps weight down low...but hardly the best place for feeding to the carbs

As i say..lovely to look at but fatally flawed...hence why they are always usually cheap.........

mmm, a yb9 or similar would no doubt make a much better track bike. Although, the sb6 was a delight on the track i must say.

Seeing as YB9's often fetch less Money that a BB1...I'd tend to agree also...if you can put up with the sheep dip yellow or red paint scheme....and even there'd be change over for a tastier respray......
