2003 MZ Baghira with all the MODs! GIVEAWAY of a LIFETIME
I've decided to sell my Supermoto - find no time to ride it anymore.
Practically a GIVEAWAY of a LIFETIME!
I've got a
2003 Baghira that I bought new.
It's got 3517km (~
2320 mi) on it.
Yamaha XTZ660 engine, bored to
720cc
Brought the power up to about
70 HP (from 50 HP factory)
I've put some major money into modding it (over $5k !):
  • Bored cylinders
  • New Gaskets
  • New Corilla Rod 650
  • Installed Big Bore Sleeve
  • New Pistons w/ Web-Cam shaft
  • Ports polished and powder coated
  • FCR Carb kit 35mm MZ
I am asking $3,500 for it. Make an offer.
buyer will arrange for a pick up from Philadelphia, PA.

I wanted one of those for a long time. I then realized how much trouble I'd probably get in and decided against a supermoto. For now, that is.

Nice find. And a helluva price for a nice bike.

I'm going out on a limb here. I think Supermotos are the biggest overblown fad in motorcycling.

Yes, a 50-60hp 320ish lb motorcycle is insanely fun. It's fun on very very tight twisty roads with humps, and sections of pavement that aren't perfect.

Everywhere else they aren't fun at all. They buzz on the highway, are anemic in power, and have seats good for about 100 miles. I've owned them. I've ridden them. Once the "hey! it's a dirt bike with street wheels!" thing wore off, it was meh. At least with a dual sport you can trail ride.

I kinda felt the same way. If your commute involves the interstate, SMs will make you pay with buzzing and such. At the end of the day, the pros far outweigh the cons for me. I miss my Duke and I regret selling it. Now let me get off the couch

I know that term isn't thrown around lightly. I'll accept this title and wear it as a badge of general grumpiness.

Hey SCOT

SM's have their limitations.. That said - what doesn't ... I wouldn't want to ride to ride a sportsbike to work in the joe racer position - but some do....

I can sit up, I can ride on back crappy road (chipped up) and can wind it out at some semblance of it's maximum capacity - and I don't risk the go directly to jail ticket, and should I fall down go boom - bigger chance than I will be ok, and so will the bike... Not to mention cheaper to purchase, work on, modify,, and insure... what is not to like about that...

I have never really advocated having on as an ONLY bike - as they do have limitations - but as the 2nd FUN bike - they rock.... if I didn't have a SM as second play toy - it would probably be a cafe racer style bike ...
