Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay is known for his love of fast cars, but he also has a passion for motorcycles after gaining his licence in 2003.
However, he has so many cars and bikes, he’s now slimming down his bike collection by selling two at Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro Classic Car Sale on February 24.
His 2003 Suzuki GSX-R600 was given to him by the Rizla Suzuki British Superbike team and could be with up to $A180,000.
Jay Kay got his bike licence that year, so that was one of his first motorcycles. However, he hasn’t ridden it much as it has only 500 miles (800km).
It’s painted in the livery of Yuko Kagayama who finished seventh in the 2003 BSB championship.
Jay Kay’s CHiPs replica
The other bike he is selling is a 1989 Kawasaki Z1000 in Californian Highway Patrol spec like the CHiPs TV show.
It was owned by former GP rider Steve Parrish in 2012.
Silverstone Auctions says the Kawasaki has had little use but needs detailing.
Neither bike has a reserve at the auction.
Jay Kay has owned up to 100 of the world’s most desirable and valuable cars and he claims he can recall every number plate.
Rather than employing specialists to run their collection and find vehicles, Jay Kay says he does it all himself.
