recently had the opportunity to ride the new DB6R, the very best to have ever been by Bimota. The main difference this brand new model and the is the weight. Engineers aimed an even lighter (7.5 kg than the standard) and implicit versatile motorcycle. Can it get better that?

We shall wait and but for 2008 the weight reduction is due to the fiber parts and the lighter The result is an outstanding 170 kg wet and that much says a lot from a that looks the way the Bimota does.

The engine is taken off the Hypermotard 1100 so it offers the and finesse that a Ducati for and combined with the slipper there is simply no better to it. Light, powerful and compact, new introduction stands for the greatest experience.


After the resurrection of the the motorcycle public witnessed the prototype that was to become a model in the early 2006. It and still is, called the Bimota DB6 and it with its lightness, quick and refined mechanics. The great is that for 2008, those have been upgraded and under the DB6R designation and the would be produced in parallel though the first had all to do with the birth.


Our tendency is to it with its Italian correspondents and the name that comes in minds is, of course, Ducati, but maker also supplies the for the DB6R, as we said before, so it be useless to try and find an opponent in it.

The best thing to compare it is called the Benelli Tornado Tre 1130 Sport Evo. Bimota and Benelli have revamped so every market is radically important for them. Sport Evo is practically the best you can get this maker in matters of bikes and at the end it all reduces to the liquid-cooled, valves per cylinder double camshaft with balancer inline-triple engine that the alternative for the DB6R.

I’ve rode the Benelli Sport Evo and to be there was nobody to convince me I could get more, until I met subject of review.

Great Britain never its chance to stand out with Triumph Speed Triple. The is practically the definition of a streeetfighter and it is by a strong-pulling 131 horsepower engine on a light and versatile chassis. It comes with goodies as the Brembo brakes and for $10,299 you simply can’t ask for more.

until you hear how much the requires!


Testimony of the to keep the entire piece of as light as possible is the way that the ended up looking. It is simply a roadster with features on envy spread on its entire The headlight is very stylish and and its small surrounding fairing the space for the front LED signal to make a good impression.

There isn’t plastic on the sides to relate to so designers did was to create the sharpest ever to be fitted on a … or on any bike in any given category. It is a talent demonstration and we’ll be a while until another one it will show up.

What I found being the thing is the almost horizontal seat that will you covered for miles and miles, I don’t know is your will have the same Ending up this harmony is the and the double exhaust which in for the unnecessary plastic.

Its compactness for itself and if a Ducati will the L-shaped engine, the Bimota a small protective shield and a side panel which away its emptiness. There are a lot of easy to notice carbon elements, fenders included.

Bimotas are known for most combining their bike’s with the engine’s amazing delivery and smoothness so the thing is you feel like you learn again from the minute been introduced to it.

It is the easiest to ride and it will perform no other when it comes to take offs and acrobatic (great torque from low). Even though you see me doing such thinks often, I can definitely say that it is a lot of fun to and pop-up wheelies on right you get out a tight corner in second

The fact that its engine is so tuned and responsive, as well as the makes it the most craved toy your average … who won’t feel like of these impressive features the impressive retail price. But is a whole other story at we will later come to. The thing is that while it you feel like a faith’s child.

What I most at it is how fast the engine can be taken up to its RPM redline without any jerks and the handling characteristics. This is is so great about it: the fact it makes any corner feel a child’s play and I have began feeling like for the DB6R. Even though not a high-revving unit, the Ducati powers the bike incredibly and uses the torque to leave the impression about Italian

And I like to consider it the culmination of the … as it incorporates the most features such as Marzocchi and Brembo brakes which, of contribute at the phenomenal riding

Feeling well at home on the new is the easiest thing and it is all due to the ergonomically handlebars, footpegs and seat. It perfect for the average-sized person, but I say that experience is indeed in order to get the best out of it. And when you hope to have uncovered all of its the DB6R shows even road abilities.

The environment in which I usually a … is composed of successive and straight sections of road and model in particularly reminds me of the a Supermoto bike would on the given sections. Even not a speed machine, it can do 160 mph easily, but at level the wind will a bothering factor and don’t me to say more (vibrations for example), there’s nothing that ruin your ride or you feel like there be a better choice.


The reviewed today clearly to people who have a soft for Italian bikes and a heavy A simple and a little disappointing is the 20,000 Euros MSRP translates in approximately $31500. It is a high price, but exclusivity has its and minuses.

Personally, I wouldn’t buying this model as it is the … I’ve ever


I would have to say that the DB6R will leave with an open mouth of the way it looks and performs. Yes, you agree more, but what will you start looking for after completing reading review? I reckon that the Triple is the first on your if the cheapest alternative is being
