  Tubular frame, low competition brakes, chassis and sporting riding position, a bike practically ready for the So it can be summed Bimota DB7 that more than 30 years the creation of the brand, perpetuates the of the three founders who give the name: Valerio Bianchi, and Giuseppi Massimo Tamburini.

The two letters of the surname of Italian passionate form the Bimota synonymous with innovative and unique bikes.Even having changed hands, the small manufacturer of Rimini preserves the ​​of its founders. As proved DB7 even before entering the Autodromo Jose Carlos in Interlagos, Sao Paulo.

In addition to its design tasteful, calling to the details of construction of the DB7.In fiber fairing, is the optical formed by two ellipsoidal headlamps. The are integrated front to rear mirrors, and rear and a slight brings LED arrows. To complete the “exclusive”, the DB7 brings the brake and levers machined Bimota’s with the brand logo.

Strange snoring

If off the Italian has attracted curious looks the engine came to, the DB7 has become a attraction in the pits at Interlagos. with the propellant Ducati Evoluzione cylinder with two “L” (V 90 °), cm ³, the DB7 issues a severe snoring and by the exhaust nozzle constructed titanium. With its dry clutch and the unique camshaft desmodromic the noise of metal is high and the sounds noisy for those to the four-cylinder Japanese.

While on the DB7, what impresses is its slim tank which a perfect fit of the pilot. The weight of 170 kg dry also makes her one of the lightest in its

Powered by electronic injection and cooling, the engine Ducati has 162 at 9750 rpm Max. It may seem compared with the 180, 190 hp of the but is not. With its lower the Bimota DB7 comes close so dreamed of one hp per pound.

The big difference this Italian-twin is his spin rises with an ease and power delivery a wide rpm range.

With flag, was eager to prove on the of all the mythical Bimota motorcycles. In the few laps, I confess that I had to get to its chassis and engine. It is unique in its and also in its management.

Unlike he had ever flown.

As I “understood” by the I felt more free to their limits. Not without a before taking on cold off the corner of Junction. But after a few the tires heated up and the fun began in

The engine screamed, the speed up, but what caught my attention was the Brembo brake system. cylinder, through the radial caliper and the pads until you get to the discs, everything is manufactured by fashion house. Two discs are 320 mm diameter in front bitten by four-piston radial, and simple disc 220 mm in diameter with caliper at the rear.

Its operation is flawless: instant steady and progressive braking. better, showing no fatigue in any At every turn slowed braking at the end of the back straight, the descent of the lake.

And the Brembo slacked off without hesitation. of note 10.

One reason for that is so Bimota is its trellis frame oval tubes made of molybdenum. But like any bike, is not a common framework lattice. It is has aluminum plates to support the and even the swing arm, to the engine, is built oval

Moreover, the DB7 has a subframe to support the of the rump and the bank (if that of foam can be called that). The is constructed of structural carbon which helps reduce and lower center of gravity of the

These innovations result in a precise and responsive chassis. stop, and pour point. At turn, had more confidence to curves and “abuse” of this in Italy.

Vale also credit to the suspensions and that greatly to the performance of the DB7 curves. Up inverted Marzocchi Corse 43mm RAC coated with nitride are fully adjustable by a of clicks. At the rear, a set manufactured by Tech exclusively for Bimota. The body is fully machined and has all the adjustments with the addition of adjustment of compression and extension in and low speed.

As only ridden on the at Interlagos can not tell if the set would well on the road. But at the racecourse perfect.

Was strong during and sharp turns, as the Bico de or climb the boxes with the open, the whole cyclist confidence and seemed to take the DB7 its in no time. Even when the end of the more than 240 km / h was required to the brake lever and lying to get the “S” do Senna.

More than exclusive

and distributed by Perfect Motors, has a factory trained technician to technical assistance to the model, the DB7 is practically a bike lane can run on the streets. So if you want a bike to take walks with his girlfriend, so … the DB7 was not made for you. engine works well at high regimes, its chassis is Racing finally qualities do not match the radar, potholed and urban traffic.

After an with this Italian on the track, say she is more than It’s a really special And not because there are only copies of the Bimota DB7 in Brazil, or because it costs $ 99,000. But it brings in every detail the passion for motorcycling, the philosophy of a two-wheeled machine that has speed and performance in every

Ma che macchina!
