This is a bit of an usual presentation of the SB6R:

No , not the polished frame - I have seen some of those. Its the Van Heers pipes. Perhaps those esteemed members in Europe can shed some light on the value (physical or intrinsic) of these but to me they make the bike look comical. I guess the frame was polished to match the exhaust. At lest the original exhaust is included. The price is very optimistic.

Oh heavens above....Its making my eyes hurt just looking at that exhaust system from the side or from behind...Might look good on a Harley...but a BImota???

Seller has made a very usual error in describing the wheels as "Bimota Marchesini Magnesium"......when clearly its got the standard ally anchor antera wheels....so he's wrong on 3 fronts with just the wheels,,,says theres lots of magnesium on the bike....I cant think of one piece that is???

Crank case breather on the top of the engine, a Suzuki part though. Makes the usual 160 bhp Laughing
