R1 signed by Rossi up for auction

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Charity fundraisers Charitystars are auctioning off a Yamaha R1 sporting a Movistar Yamaha MotoGP replica paint scheme and the autograph of living legend Valentino Rossi. 

Only three bikes in the world have been signed by Rossi (and The Doctor has actually signed this bike twice – on the tank as well as the fairing). The auction closes on September 18 with proceeds going to La Gotita Onlus, an Italian charity for children in need. 

At time of publishing this Rossi-inked R1 is going for 29,001 euros, though if you’d like to up the ante you can bid here.
