A better DB1SR. By Bruno de Prato, 1987.In 1986 when engineers mated one of their to a Ducati engine, they a motorcycle, which became best selling bike and the companies’ reputation by more any of its previous machines.

The DB1 changed from a small volume house into a recognised of prestigious, quality designed all happened during Bimota’s hour, with former Massimo Tamburini and Guiseppe fighting over the companies’ in a Rimini court, and Bimota out of financial breath. You’re at the happy epilogue. Outwardly identical to the standard DB1,

The incorporates tuning changes make it the motorcycle Bimota have loved to have first, the true Bimota, by bureaucratic compromise. Business prevailed against producing the SR until now.

To survive financially, Bimota to sell DB1’s in the world and strict homologation in Switzerland, and the United States — noise laws — the 750 cc Pantah F1 engine in the DB1 wear air cleaners and a civilized two into one Historically, Ducati engines their best power they breathe freely, and the muffler and airbox volume, the

Yet Bimota’s DB1’s natural meant that the airbox and had to shrink. The Rimini’s companies’ is founded upon elegant, machines, but nobody wants a (Our test unit through the quarter mile in seconds at 104 mph, May 1986).

The DB1 more punch, and with the SR took the direct Italian Forget the noise — Bimota is only for countries enough to savor its sound. Dr, Martini, a graduate of Ducati’s and development department and the man who designed the DB1 knew exactly where to for the missing power.

Gone are the restrictive air filtration and the heavy twin exhausts, the 36mm carburetors are history This 750 breathes through modified 41mm Dell’Ortos, a pair of Montjuich specification Martini would have the excellent Ducati NCR two into one pipes, but these must be modified to fit the DB1 chassis.

Martini with various exhaust on Bimota’s DB1 race bike year, and chose a pipe for the SR, quits the bike without the engine. With the larger Martini wanted the SR’s cleaned up. For smooth airflow, ports are machined to 34mm the same diameter as the carburetor downstream from their Martini’s experience pays the homologated European spec.

Top is 142 mph, quarter mile in the low 11’s, good for any 750 and phenomenal for a From aboard the SR, the exhaust sounds loud but low pitched, not But the intakes bark loudly up the fibreglass body shell, the bit this engine holds in

Surprisingly the bike will though tunes as hot as it is the SR burps and below 3000 rpm. 3000 rpm to 10,000 rpm the engine like a hydraulic ram, no flat spots or dips. does not come in it is everywhere. A has never been so useful on an twin.

The DB1SR is so smooth, so in its power delivery that an rider can easily over rev the Our first test ride on the DB1 year, we said the chassis rigid enough to take 20 horses gracefully. Here is On the track the SR delivers a remarkable experience, barely this of pure road racing, if you are just out for a leisurely ride.

On the road the Bimota’s handling and means extra confidence and a safety margin. This is praise to anyone who has ridden a — for the SR we have another to add. Past Bimota’s often been too stiffly for comfort on the street, but the SR, as tight and that it is, negotiates bumpy without beating its rider an early submission.

Only one spoils the symbiosis between and machine, the SR has an overly stiff lever. Ducati’s punishing are legendary, but this time it is not the builder’s fault — it has to do the SR’s brakes. The DB1 SR uses a par of four piston calipers on its disc.

To actuate these properly, a cylinder with a round, reservoir mounted atop the fork leg.

To that lofty add another $2500 and a full exhaust note for the DB1 SR. Most of us never own one of these exotics, but wants only satisfied and for people who bought a DB1 last and now think their bike is than perfect, the company an SR conversion kit. Until sees fit to send some valve, liquid cooled down Rimini way, the DB1 SR as the closest incarnation of the true Italian motorcycle.
