2007 Bimota Tesi 3D

March 22nd, 2009 admin

The hub-centre steered Bimota Tesi is back. This is the third generation Bimota Tesi: the 3D. It costs £19,600 and is powered by the Ducati Multistrada 1100 engine. Although the Bimota Tesi is beautifully made, it’s a very cramped motorcycle and the quirky front end doesn’t have anywhere near the feel of a well set-up pair of forks.

The cheaper DB5 and DB6 Delerio are leagues ahead in terms of handling, performance and fun-factor.


There’s a fine line between Ducati’s air-cooled, twin spark 1072cc V-twin motor being fun or disappointing depending on what motorcycle it’s slotted into. In the lightweight DB6 Delirio or Ducati Hypermotard it’s a little gem and you’re left never wanting more. In the heavier Multistrada, DB5 and this Bimota Tesi 3D it just hasn’t got the oomph to make you smile.

The Bimota Tesi 3D desperately needs a more powerful motor.

Ride and Handling

The theory of the hub centered front end is that, unlike forks, braking forces are kept away from the front suspension, leaving it free to deal with bumps in the road. The reality of the Bimota Tesi 3D is that there’s very little  from the  front end, which can rob the rider of the confidence to push hard into corners and generate corner speed. The seating position is ridiculously cramped and too far forward.

As you’d expect from the price tag, the Bimota Tesi 3D has been put together by hand using only the finest materials and cycle parts. The small fairing, load-bearing seat unit and most of the bodywork is from carbon fibre and Bimota’s trademark milled billet aluminium plates adorn the Bimota Tesi 3D everywher

Quality and Reliability

If the front suspension system is open to debate the quality of the Bimota Tesi 3D certainly isn’t, it’s quite simply stunning to behold. As a piece of motorcycling art it’s worth every penny if you’ve got the dosh. Engine-wise the Ducati unit is very simple and is tried and tested in the Multistrada and Hypermotard, so there shouldn’t be any problems with reliability.

The latest addition to the collection, the new Tesi 3D arrived Friday and was uncrated just a few hours before I saw it. It will immediately go on display, probably next to Barber’s original Tesi1D prototype. Its new permanent home will make a nice homage to Pierluigi Marconi’s thes project, and it will never be run. Incidentally, if you ask an Italian, This is pronounced tay-z.

I stand corrected!

Since the floor plan is so open at the Barber, I spotted the machine even before I could get near it. And as I got closer and closer, it was almost certainly glowing. I swear I heard a few angels echoing in the background.

With floors so clean you could lick them, the bike looked right at home.
