English rider Peter Hickman’s winning motorcycle at the 2022 Isle of Man TT races has fetched a staggering GBP112,700 (RM627k) at The International Classic Motorcycle Show’s Spring Stafford Sale on April 22, 2023.
- The bike was prepared by Gas Monkey Garage by FHO Racing and is a BMW M 1000 RR that Hickman rode to victories in the Superbike and Senior TT classes.
- The motorcycle is a Superbike World Championship-spec machine that boasts a reinforced chassis, a Suter swingarm, and Öhlins suspension.
In addition, BMW specially prepared the engine and airbox, and an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system along with a larger fuel tank and an STM clutch to meet the demands of the Snaefell Mountain course.
The motorcycle’s authenticity was confirmed by the bug guts splattered across the front fairing and the chain grease/road debris speckling the under-tail.
Interestingly, the new owner has chosen to remain anonymous. Nevertheless, Hickman’s winning bike is definitely an every collectors dream.
Hickman has been on a winning streak since the 2018 Isle of Man TT, accumulating nine TT wins in just five years.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic sidelining IOMTT races for two consecutive years, Hickman continued to dominate the field in 2022, winning the Supertwin, Superstock, Superbike, and Senior TT classes.
With the 2023 Isle of Man TT just around the corner, there is a chance that another Hickman-ridden motorcycle could make it back to the auction block soon.
