(And I think it may currently or previously belong to an esteemed forum member.)

It's at $54,990 with only 3321km, against a new 2013 for $89,990. ($35,000 less!!)

2013 Bimota DB7 Oronero
Only 31 produced worldwide, and this is Number 31. Number 30 was destroyed in an accident, or this one wouldn't exist as a replacement by special arrangement with Bimota.

Here's a new 2013 for comparison...

The only bike that compares aestheticaly with an F4 CC, IMHO.

Don't know how the Aus would compare to the U.S. but i recall they had a super hard time selling these bikes at 35k here when brand new. Think most dealers ended up virtually giving them away.

Correction, those weren't the "O" edition. Even so i don't see what would give even this bike such a high price tag.

None the less, these are they type of bikes that have to wait for the right buyer.

At a $35,000 discount from new 2013 to used 2013, I'd think ONE motivated buyer could be found.

Carbon frame and swingarm. Carbon bodywork. Billet and precious metals everywhere.

Iirc the bike is for sale from a member here. As you say, it is a small group of people who appreciate such beautiful exotica and have the spare cash available.

the reality is that times are tight for the average person and not looking to improve in the near future. This is reflected in the motorcycle market where as once you just bought a bikeand updated on a regular basis, now people tend to have just one bike which will last them for 5 or more years. This one bike is used for everything so must have a certain degree of suitability. In addition Ducati is a relatively large market in Australia and are producing bikes with performance at a reasonable price (for Italian bikes). Finally, Bimota are only known by a select few, the enthusiast and Bimotas presence in Australia has been very light for many years. The result is that almost any Bimota has a very small market or rather very tiny market and in fact there are probably only a handful of people in Oz who would even be interested in this particular bike.

Yes, it's a member. I just thought there was one person in AUS that might buy such a bike at such a bargain.

My thought was that those who can usually buy such a machine wouldn't be so affected by the economic downturn, and would seize upon a depressed market to buy such a bike. But AUS is a bit different than the US.

Yes, I wasn't sure it would be okay to divulge the ownership. I must have missed his For Sale ad.

This is another exotic hand crafted work of art. I'm interested but the bank say NO! :mad:
I guess that's the bottom line for everyone. Even in the US where a new DB8 Oronero would be almost $70K, that selling price equates to $50K and a $20K savings.

I just need to remind myself how obscure Bimota is, even to motorcycle guys. And it's a shame it's impossible to export bikes from AUS to the USA.
