    Hi racing community,

    I'm sadly entertaining selling my 2012 RRF Yamaha R6. It was formerly Jake Gagne's (Red Bull) B bike.

    The only reason I'm even thinking about selling this bike is to race a ZX10R this season.

    This bike is very capable of winning races and has led me to more than a dozen wins and many more podiums in 2018.

    **I'm hoping some of the East Coast racing family chimes in to validate how capable this bike is**

    The new owner will be very happy. I on the other hand, will probably start crying. I've built some epic memories aboard this bike.


    Located in Charlotte, NC

    Shipping is a non-issue, I'll gladly cooperate to facilitate the process (buyers expense)

    More...I'm just getting bored listing it...LOL

    The bike doesn't have the bodywork installed currently.

    Took the bike for a spin yesterday 2/6/19 everything performed well.

    If the bike doesn't sell by the end of February, I'll sadly part it out.

    **Feel free to contact me if you'd like prices on the spares**

    Thank you for your interest.

    No sir. No stock fairings. I'm not certain that this would make for a suitable street bike. I'd really like to see this bike go to a serious track enthusiast or a racer who wants to win races. It's just in it's DNA :beer:

    Dude I’m sorry I was totally joking with that question...I’ve seen people ask it with race bikes like this and thought it would be funny. Lesson learned. It’s not.

    No worries. I read your post and thought to myself, "this bike would beat the shit out of you on the street." The first South Carolina pot hole you hit would break your junk. Not necessarily implying that South Carolina has horrible roads, but Ohlins suspension and South Carolina streets aren't the best of friends. I only live 3 minutes from the state line and lets assume that I may have taken the bike for a test ride in the local vicinity.;)

    Holy crap... if you took it anywhere near Rock Hill, I'm surprised you didn't die. For a myriad of reasons, not just potholes!!! Gorgeous bike and great set up. Too bad I'm $7,500 shy of asking price and completely out of talent for it.

    Right?! Rock Hill, SC is a multifaceted threat. Again, the owner will be pleasantly surprised with the purchase.
    I'm going to be candid. While I understand I may reduce the number of potential buyers, I'm not concerned who this statement may offend.
    I want a racer who wants to win buying this bike. It is a well honed, purpose built machine designed to win races. I want to keep in touch with that individual and share in the thrill as he/she/it rips by the competition. I do not want it to end up in someones care who does a couple track days a year.

    Understood. Sounds like you're not "letting go". And understandably so. I totally regret selling my 03 R6 track bike. And though I didn't stay in touch with the buyer, I did try to reach out to him to buy it back if possible. That was 2.5 years after selling it because I was "oh so sure" I couldn't afford it sitting around unused and "oh so sure" I wouldn't be riding the track any time soon. F** me! Now here I am looking for a bike again. So I can ride the track again.

    Point I'm making is: If you can hang onto it, do it man!. F'ing do it!

    Thanks buddy. I'd love to see someone on the team I'll be racing for buy it. I understand I'm a little late to the game. If I were to have had it on the market 2 months ago before everyone bought their bikes, I'm sure it would be long gone...but I couldn't bring myself to part with it. I'll be on a 1k this year, so I'm prepared to swallow that sour pill. Thanks for the words of wisdom sir!

    Bump for a wicked fast bike! This is the only R6 I'd leave my Honda for. Having raced against this machine and rider numerous times, I know how fast these two are. You should look up Bryan's YouTube if you have any doubts.
