Superbike For Sale: Well Looked After, Never Crashed Or Dropped

It was a crash that left the motorcycling world holding its breath, an incredible inferno which no human being could possibly survive.

Within weeks Martin was back in the saddle, completing the rest of the 2010 road racing season on this rebuilt Blade.

That very bike is now up for sale, and could be yours for a small sum.

Is it worth it? Well, alongside its impressive racing past, it does come with a letter of authenticity and a selection of spare parts and wheels…
