Here’s an eBay auction with a difference: you could be the lucky owner of the unique ‘Piro’ Replica R1 with which Yamaha paid tribute to the late Fabrizio Pirovano at Estoril, the track at which the Italian secured his 10th and final WorldSBK victory in 1993. The bike is now up for auction to the highest bidder, with the proceeds from the sale to be donated to charity.
Based on the 2020-spec Yamaha R1, and sporting the famous white, pink and blue colours of Pirovano’s #5 Yamaha YZF 750 SP, the special ‘Piro’ Replica R1 is a completely unique bike created by Yamaha Motor Europe. It is now available for auction here and will go to the highest bidder.
The auction will run until Sunday 1st November at 12:00 CET and the winner can decide whether they want the bike delivered in race trim, exactly as it was for the Estoril tribute lap, or in fully road legal trim with the Piro Replica bodywork, the Akrapovič race exhaust and the Pirelli slick shod wheels supplied as a separate kit.
