well monkey for one thing, Honda stopped making 900rr's a few years ago. So there's no way it can be a 2003.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

But don't Canadiens still call the CBR's 900's? I know they call the 929 a 900, would they do the same with a 954? Cause even the spec sheet listed gives it's displacement as 954. Meaning it might be from canada

Well looks like he figured out his mistake and ended the bidding... I'm pretty sure its a 954RR European Model because they didn't offer the RR in Blue and Black in the US, but they did overseas.... (im a big fan of the color scheme).

The bike is parked in a showroom...no chance that they don't know what they have.

There are sooo many scams on eBay. It's sad how people steal the pictures and description from an auction and list an identical auction for a much cheaper price. It's sad 'cause the true owner of the bike loses bids and the person who's stupid enough to buy the bike from the scammer loses their money. Nobody wins except the scammer.
