2009 RSVR Factory. Low mile (5,841 miles as of today), mint, original owner bike. Veteran rider/tech owned. Located in Chico, CA.
No crashes/tipovers/"garage events"/etc., It's MINT.
No track time, street ridden only.
Well cared for and up to date on services. Ready to ride.
Clear title in my name
I purchased the bike new, fresh from the crate from AF1 in Texas in 2011 and had it shipped to my door in NorCal, where it's lived inside my garage when not out gallivanting about on back roads.
Bike runs excellent (running MAP 2), sounds fantastic, and handles like it's on a rail. I've ridden just about every kind of sportbike made and the RSVR is the best handling bike I've ever ridden that was anything short of full-blown race machine.
Known *issues*:
1) As delivered to me, the RH side lower was *almost* touching header as delivered and caused a TINY amount of heat damage to the INSIDE of the cowling that is not visible on the outside. This was due to a minor cowl bracket issue related to the install of the Woodcraft rearsets (installed by AF1). The lower didn't actually contact the header, it was just a tiny bit too close. I didn't catch it until I smelled hot plastic after the first ride. I corrected the spacing issue, AF1 replaced the RH lower at no cost and I purchased another LH lower just so I'd have a new set. The original panel is still on the bike since it looks fine from the outside.
2) Due to how it's routed off the lever, the cable for the remote brake span adjuster can *just* contact the dash at full left lock. The cable is quite flexible and it's not enough to be any kind of issue (IMHO) and there is NO mark on the dash from this. If it bothered you, it would be easy put the original adjuster knob back on the lever.
If there were anything to "complain" about on this bike, that'd be it.

I'm asking $10,000. I won't part anything out or sell the Axone/spares separately, it's a package deal.
I am well aware of KBB pricing on these bikes and have arrived at my asking price after much soul-searching and what the bike means to me and how that translates into a $$ figure. It's a sizeable chunk of cash to be sure, but given the rarity of these bikes, it's condition, what I've got into it, etc., this is a fair and reasonable number.
I'm not in a position that forces the sale, I just don't have time to ride it like I should and I'd just like to see someone that appreciates bikes of this caliber enjoy it rather than have it decorating my garage.
Questions, just ask. I'll happily supply any additional information a potential buyer might need. Same with pics of any specific details, etc.
