40k-50k Graves R1, are you serious?

I mean, i know some stuff is expensive but knowing how restictive the series is (AMA/DMG american SBK) i just can't see this bike costing this much.

I can see it back in 2008 when you could have brembos, ohlins, internal etc. But now?

BJN80946

Maybe i am charging to little for paint jobs

But i can very well be wrong.

$40k-$50k does seem a bit ridiculous. Unless that price tag comes with several spare frames/engines/wheels/forks/swingarms.

I'd be surprised to see them get anywhere close to that asking price.

How much does it cost to honeycomb the frame?

That has to be pricey alone.
