The sale of the three bikes is taking place on the Iconic Motorbike Auctions website and sees a 2005 CBR1000RR Repsol, a 2007 CBR1000RR Repsol, and a 2019 CBR1000RR Repsol all going up for sale with no reserve. Each bike has come directly from American Honda’s own private collection, and they have zero miles on their bores and are in totally original and as-new condition.

In selected model years, American Honda has imported the CBR1000RR in special Repsol graphics as a tribute to the factory Honda MotoGP team, for whom the global multi-energy company has been the title sponsor since 1994. That relationship has produced 15 MotoGP Rider World Championships, via Mick Doohan, Alex Criville, Valentino Rossi, Nicky Hayden, Casey Stoner and Marc Marquez.

Bids can be placed through the Iconic Motorbikes Website but you’ll have to be quick! There are only around 4-days left on the auction as I type, and the bidding war is already underway. The ’05 and ’07 are currently sat at $16,100 while the ’09 bike is stalling slightly at $13,100.

The auction will run from September 3rd to the 10th, with all proceeds going to the PBTF. The amount raised will be announced during Ride for Kids, which takes place on September the 12th.
