2005 Bimota SB8K Santa Monica

2005 Bimota SB8K Santa Monica
500 miles

Originally retailed for $45k.
To the best of my knowledge, only 11 (out of 20) were imported into the US, and only a handful of those had the carbon tank. The ones I've seen for sale in the states in the past have all had the white (aluminum) tank.

Purchased from original owner a few months ago with 220 miles. Since then I have performed the following:

New Supercorsa SP (about 100 miles on them)
Full fluid change (oil, hydraulic, etc)
New fork seals and fluids
New Battery
Tank coated with Caswell Plating (This is the Euro Spec bike with full Carbon tank)
Full inspection by Ducati Austin

Only one tiny scratch on the bike, barely visible. See photos. This bike is stunning, but I just can't find it in me to ride it. To be honest, I'm completely scared of dropping it, so it just sits here looking pretty.

Never down, never seen rain, always pampered.



Now for sale through Horsepower Farm in Austin TX. Interested parties can contact them directly at 512-436-0506. Thank you,

Very nice! I'd probably be scared to ride it too.

I have one of these & can honestly say it is a great sport bike. Great power curve & light weight handling. I just rode mine to the Red Bull GP with a 1098, MV F4 (my old bike) a BMW 1000rr & KTM RC8R. It more than held it's own. Good luck with the sale , I do not know this specific bike, but, I'm pretty sure that who ever get this will not be unhappy

Trade??

Want to trade for a Brand New zero miles Benelli Tornado TRE LE ( Limited Edition), #101 of 150 made.

I have a brand new Benelli in my garage. Im the original owner. The bike has zero miles. The bike comes with a case of extra components and I have some accessories that can also go with the trade ( like a brand new titanium Akrapovic GP race exhaust, billet radial front brake caliper fork bottoms made by Moto Corse ....the bike comes with Ohlins front and back, Carbon mirrors, CRG controls, custom made carbon tank guard, spare gas tank NIB, street and race exhausts......and a bunch of other bits I have collected with the bike. I was going to make a GP replica of the bike but I have not done this yet).

I have a small collection of BIMOTAs and Id love to add another SB8K Santa Monica to the mix.

P.S....the SB8K Santa Monica is a superb bike. Im puzzled that you wish to part with such a prize....

good luck with your sale and/or trade

As appealing as that is (awesome bike!) I'm really looking to downgrade quite a bit into something I wouldn't shed tears over if I dump it
