Re: wow

Bimota Bikes are wanted in Europe. When i used to live in germany had a few guys with Bimotas and i promise you , you get what you want for the money, top performance, a wicked look and best of all it is unique .. you just need a fat wallet

Now this looks well radical and something else.....mmmhh me likey, still not 100% on the front swingarm, but could grow on me, I wonder how she handles? And Bimota grow on you, its like marmite, you either love it or hate it

Do, or do not, there is no try !
The mind is a funny thing

Yes for fact i have it was a Db7 with a Ducati engine. The handling is amazing and the light weight of the bike gives you all possibilities of agility. Even though it was only a short ride it was worth it for those 5 minutes. It was on a Moto show in Essen/ Germany in 08 ...Thumbs for that bike .. but i still love my 29 and my 54

Re: wow

I have an article on the Confederate bike from a few years ago. Leno bought one. They have another model too. I can't remember the name but it is equally as radical.
The Bimota Tesi was created in the early 90's, and has now been reinvented to bring it up to current specs. It has hub centric steering and the weirdest thing is under braking the front end does not dive at all and the suspension remains active.

Re: wow

I'm a big fan of the new Bimota Tesi.A few years ago i was in BIKEWORLD in Dublin,Ireland and the owner of the shop had his private colllection on show.Think he had about 12 of them.Looked amazing in the shop on display but unfortunately none of them were for sale.
Must say though if I had some major cash to spare I'd go for a Honda NR750 or a 2000 Munch Mammoth
