First Ride: Bimota DB7 If the Bimota DB7 is a little too pedestrian for step up to the DB7 Oronero carbon-fiber

Carbon fiber offers the combination of strength and light Formula One cars and the latest 787 Dreamliner are meaningful examples of the achievements granted by a competent use of the Theoretically, it would be the perfect for ultra-light and rigid motorcycle yet few in motorcycling have taken the even fewer have successful.

Enter Bimota, one of a handful of motorcycle manufacturers entitled to market bikes price tags exceeding Bimota introduced its Oronero edition of the superb DB7 at EICMA completed durability and reliability by mid-2009 and operators, as they are now standing by to take orders for the which means “Black

The Oronero duplicates the DB7 down to geometrical and structural detail, perfectly textured carbon and a glossy black finish even more preciousness to the beautifully designed machine. the original trellis-type frame was a technical challenge: The mechanical of carbon fiber are best put to in large, continuous structures the hull of an America’s Cup sailboat or the and wings of a jet plane, not in structures of lots of small, interconnected like a tubular trellis

Today’s accepted frame involving a pair of large-section would have been easier to manufacture and, also lighter and stiffer. But it would have deprived the of that uniquely traditional flavor, no? Not to mention it would’ve a completely different-looking bike the highly successful DB7.

To get the best out of carbon fiber to such a complex structure, chief project engineer Acquaviva enlisted the expertise of an Italian firm specializing in the of racing bicycle frames. In its tubular structures, BRBike a number of carbon-fiber “socks,” impregnated with high-tech resins.

The tubular elements constitute the Bimota frame the same oval-section design and (50 x 30mm) of the steel tubing replace, with the gauge thicker at 2mm. The final is a 30 percent more torsionally work of art, and the same is applied to the construction of the swingarm.

Gas tank, seat, fairing and all the of the “bodywork” are beautifully made in fiber while retaining the DB7 design. Everything else on my DB7 Oronero is a total carryover the DB7 in terms of components: Tenneco-Marzocchi RAC 43 DLC fork, ExtremeTech 2T4V twin 320mm “daisy Braking rotors and Brembo Monobloc calipers. And the Oronero is by a Ducati 1098 unit, as the DB7 I tested last year, so a comparison between the two can be easily though Bimota should be given access to the Ducati Testastretta Evo engine.

The Oronero is an evolution of an absolute masterpiece arguably the most intriguing, advanced chassis ever to a Ducati 90-degree V-Twin: steering geometry and anti-squat and balanced weight bias the same 56.5-inch wheelbase as on the 1098 1198—and all of it now down to a 360 pounds, 14 pounds less the steel DB7. Seat is just 31.5 inches, an achievement on a sportbike so compact, and the is pushed as far forward as possible for a reach to the clip-ons. Much importantly, that seating allows very little of the weight-distribution bias with a aboard, from 52/48 to (still pretty correct) dynamic, according to Bimota.

Lifting the bike from its is enough to appreciate how incredibly the Oronero is. Riding it is even Shod with Pirelli Rossos, the DB7 Oronero proved easy to learn and corner to lean angles, where it encourages you to push one or two notches The extra rigidity of the Oronero and the lighter overall weight the precise steering and responsiveness

Then there’s the bike’s power-to-weight ratio, which even more to its very acceleration and throttle response.

At a level of aggression, though, the of the Oronero flashes a red warning in the back of my mind. What the this Bimota is so incredibly and surefooted that daring the rulebook becomes the rule. In life, the qualities of the Oronero translate into much throttle openings out of corners with supreme agility and a sweet feeling of near

And a touch of exclusiveness that you apart in any crowd. At a price, of Only $40,000.
