Who says alternative front systems are …?

First the DB1-inspired DB5 and DB6 Delirio, and now comes the Tesi 3D, a bike inspired by the hub-center Tesi of the ’80s, to break the established mold of chassis design of the time.

by first-generation Tesi engineer Acquaviva, the 3D is in many ways a version of the Vyrus C3 984 Desmodue. I to make something different, Acquaviva. The 3D looks similar to the 2D, but

I began with a clean of paper to produce a bike fixed the 2D’s drawbacks: steering lock, a repositioned shock [to clear the rider’s a narrower build and a simpler system.

First shown at year’s Milan Show, the 3D will at first be available in limited-edition livery and specification, a volume-production model (sporting bits) will be offered for less money. Only the model is, however, currently to be sold stateside.

The 3D employs Ducati’s torquier and powerful 1079cc Dual motor rated at 97 bhp. has wrapped this in a pair of aluminum spars, which mounting points for the front and swingarms. A tubular-steel subframe the steering head and its carbon-fiber counterpart comprises a solo

The RD team used the Delirio’s headlight, dash and rear and added a hub-center front end a revised layout. Unlike the 1D, whose cross-member countershaft the steering linkage across the from the left side of the to the right, the 3D retains all its rocker-arm on the left. This helps the machine more maneuverable and to park.

How’s it work? Pretty though you must absolutely your thinking to get the most the bike in a twisty-road environment. The for this is the bike’s lack of when braking for corners.

This means you can brake and not worry about the front end and possibly blowing past its limit.

It’s a reasonably motorcycle, though its … design means it’s OK to sit up and fling the bike from to corner. The engine pushes you with enthusiasm, the Grimeca stop you powerfully and controllably, and the systems-anchored by a pair of Italian-made Tech dampers-keep the wheels in with the tarmac. The 3D is also stable at triple-digit speeds.

Who says you can’t reinvent the if has to be a hub-center one?
