My current motorcycle is a 2007 Honda CBR1000RR and I love it! It’s fast, handles amazing, and is a looker! However, I need something that is comfortable for the passenger, something with luggage, something that Margot wants to ride, and something that is more fuel efficient wouldn’t hurt either.
I wanted my ad to catch people’s attention, and stir up some buzz, so here’s what I put together:
2007 Honda CBR1000RR
Mileage: 65,000 kms
Condition: Near mint, 2 minor scratches on tank
The #1 song that year was IRREPLACEABLE by Beyonce, which is what your reputation will be after you buy it. Don’t let my name fool you, this bike handles AMAZING and is FAST! Marc Marquez himself couldn’t keep up with me (mind you he was walking, but still!).
This bike is CLEAN — it’s so fast the dirt doesn’t have time to stick. If you’re not a fast rider, no problem. Just sitting on it at Tim Horton’s will make you look fast. For no extra money, I can provide you entertaining stories you can tell about the adventures you’ve had on this bike that girls, women, boys and men alike will be enthralled with.
All this for $5200. How can you afford not to buy it?
You will be hard pressed to find a cleaner, better maintained bike of this year. It’s a head turner and I always get a lot of compliments on it. Never tracked since I had it, and engine is still very strong. Owned and ridden by mature adult since 2013 (originally purchased with ~ 30,000 kms)
– Full synth oil since 30,000 km’s (Motul 7100)
– New Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires Aug 2015 (should go at least another 10K)
– Chain & sprockets replaced 2014 (DID 525, stock width, steel sprockets), ~ 18K on it
– maintained at Speedworx Superbike (except simple jobs like oil changes which I did myself)
– Hindle undertail exhaust (original included)
– Black Vortex rearsets
– Motovation frame sliders
– Stainless steel front brake lines
– Heated grips
– Competition Werks Undertail kit
– Kaoko throttle lock
– flush turn signals
– Battery Tender pigtail connector under rear seat
Extras (all OEM Honda Brand):
– Honda cover,
– Honda tailbag
– Honda windscreen
– Original muffler
– Honda solo seat
Pickup in Markham. Can deliver within GTA.

Update by Margot Bai: On May 27 2016 the right buyer came along and we made a deal. Though sad to let his ride go, James’ consolation was knowing it went to someone who really appreciated it. The buyer had previously owned a 2003 Honda CBR 1000RR motorcycle and so considered the 2007 an upgrade. We loaded him up with ample accessories, making this a win-win deal. With free space in the garage, James now has the opportunity to leverage his contacts in the motorcycle industry to test out some different bikes. We also still have our 1993 Honda CBR600 F2 motorcycle which is great for 2 up rides plus our Honda Jazz scooter until we buy something newer.
