Bimota — The land of engines

Emilia Romagna region, the of Bimota, is the technical and cultural of Italian motorcycle passion, and manufacture. The design and engineering of motorcycles and automobiles in this known as the ‘terra dei motori’ land of engines), is simply a way of Today it remains fertile for the most exciting new design and performance advancements for racing and motorcycles alike.

Since the Bimota has produced distinct motorcycles with innovative to motorcycle design, construction and dynamics, most notably of advanced hybrid-trellis frames, of hub-center steering and extreme to hand-crafted detail.

Ultimate bikes

The engines selected by are acquired directly from the top producers. Over the years, included power plants Ducati, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Kawasaki. Most models initially developed as race machines.

The popular Japanese and engines, mated to the advanced chassis and components, have been considered the ultimate sport bikes, and the marque of for the most sophisticated riders.

The advantages of a Bimota motorcycle been widely recognised by street riders and competitive alike. Bimota race have carried such names as Virginio Ferrari, Tardozzi, Johnny Cecotto, Mertens, Giancarlo Falappa, Mamola and many others to on the world stage.

The pride of

Bimota’s unique position in the of Italian sport bikes, one of innovation, unique design, and uncompromising component quality, has been the primary directive and of Bimota. Since the rebirth of in 2003, these priorities taken shape in the new generation DB5, DB6 Delirio and Tesi 3D, all exclusively by Ducati Desmo Together, in the world of sport

these three model make an outstanding offer in the Sport (DB5), Sport (Tesi 3D), and Sport (DB6) segments of the market. Bimota motorcycle is proudly engineered and manufactured by hand in the Bimota factory in Rimini,

The Bimota DB7 Distinctly Bimota

The objective in the of Bimota’s newest Superbike was to a motorcycle that is light and with superior road while remaining distinctly in style and attitude. Furthermore, the new was to be as capable on the track as it is on the street.

so many Superbike manufacturers, are also many advanced and capable motorcycles. So for Bimota, being fast and race is not enough, a Bimota must something more, much

The DB7 looks like no other never to be mistaken for another With the team colours of white and black applied to the fiber body shaped by the pen and of designer Enrico Borghesan, the family dna is clear to see. Superbike dares true to get close and indulge in its details.

The and drama of the DB7 at a distance is surpassed by its detail. Each and every fastener and chassis component is fashioned and manufactured with using

advanced materials. billet machined sub-frames, and control levers to the structural fiber tail section and silencer, no compromise was ever nor made. The details are simply

Whether used for road or a sport bike’s lightweight a big advantage and the DB7 leads the way. The section of the bike is crafted structural carbon fiber, the need for a sub-frame. The weight-saving of carbon fiber is also for all fairing sections, fenders, guards and instrument supports.

Further savings come the titanium silencer, new ultra-light wheels plus machined frame plates, controls and adjusters.

The DB7’s road are inspiring and confident thanks to the of superior materials, suspension, frame, wheels and controls. the best components from partners such as Brembo, and ExtremeTech, combined with own ultra-light wheels and frame, and track-proven performance is ensured.

chose to power the DB7 with the World Superbike dominating Testastretta Evoluzione engine. a partner of Bimota from the has developed the Testastretta into the most powerful production while retaining all the advantages of the configuration. It’s a perfect to the Bimota formula and guarantees with every twist of the

Handcrafted sport motorcycles are the thing that Bimota and they are its singular motivation. The DB7 is the of the pride, dreams and talent of

DB7 Power — The 1098 engine

The Testastretta Evoluzione is the pinnacle of Ducati’s development and of the L-Twin engine. World dominance for the last 15 years is the of their continual commitment to technology and the 1098 Testastretta the most powerful twin-cylinder engine in history, is a fitting to the continued ingenuity of their

Highly ‘over-square’, the 1098 a massive 104mm bore and a 64.7mm …. To optimise the of the new big twin, the completely redesigned are combined with advanced induction technology to produce an 160hp of pure excitement.

The cylinder-heads feature a reduced between intake and exhaust allowing highly efficient, intake ducts to feed shaped combustion chambers large valves (42mm 34mm exhaust), operated by camshafts.

The potential of the new cylinder-heads has optimised by feeding them MotoGP developed elliptical bodies. With a 30% increase in air over conventional throttle the new elliptical shape contributes to the power of the DB7.

Impressively, the 1098 is one of the lightest Superbike engines ever, to the close scrutiny of every including transmission gears and selector drum as well as the oil and primary gears.

The DB7 1098 from additional Bimota including a new fuel injection has been developed for the DB7 employing Marelli 12 hole micro spray injectors, controlled by an Walbro ECU (engine control The Walbro system is highly in its tuning capacity, a great during development and for racing plus it enjoys the simplicity of using a standard windows PC.

Finally, the 1098 is complemented by a designed exhaust system. header pipes are formed of stainless steel and route to a converter mounted under the The exhaust then exits to an right side mounted silencer.

Of course, the DB7 responsibly with the strict Euro3 standards.

DB7 Chassis — frame

The DB7 frame is the most evolution of the Bimota hybrid-trellis The composite structure employs and welded thin wall (Chrome Moly) tubing and 6082 AC 100 Aluminium Alloy. The round tubes of the original design have been for the DB7 with oval section in a 50mm x 30mm dimension 1.5mm wall thickness. The section joins the new larger

robust alloy plates, and work in harmony with the as a ‘stressed member’ of the frame The result is a substantial 2.3kg in weight, yet with torsionally rigidity. What you feel as a is confident and consistent road and stability.


The new DB7 swingarm is with the same oval and machined aluminium of the frame. the swingarm pivoting directly in the cases and using an advanced GP rising rate linkage rear wheel travel is responsive and accurately follows the most demanding road An important feature of the system is the to adjust ride height, of spring pre-load and other settings, via an eccentric top shock

This is a critical feature perfecting suspension set-up.

carbon fiber

The tail of the DB7 is crafted in structural carbon an advanced material and methodology used in the aircraft industry. Its use significantly to the DB7’s lightweight and of form. This superior solution eliminates the need for a rear sub-frame, and effectively the center of gravity of the bike.

Rear wheel is controlled by the outstanding ExtremeTech 2v4 Specifically developed for the DB7, it is of fully machined aluminium and separate high and low speed adjustments, for both compression and plus spring preload. As a the 2v4 can be accurately tuned for any riding or track condition.

DB7 Control Monobloc brake calipers

For a with the performance of the DB7, stopping power is fundamental, so the new mounts only the best; Monobloc racing calipers. The calipers are machined from a block of alloy and the result is a piece unit that has higher rigidity and resistance to for maximum stopping power extreme braking. Combined 320mm discs, world

level braking performance is in the of every DB7 rider.

Super wheels

Fitting lighter has always been the racer’s way to the handling and track ‘feel’ of a bike. This normally upgrade, is standard fare for the Designed in-house and manufactured for Bimota, the new ten spoke wheels are and dramatically reduce the critical contributing greatly to the DB7’s performance and ease of direction

Brake and clutch controls

The DB7 follow the quality and performance of the entire bike. Bimota has the race specification Brembo pumps for both front and clutch actuation. Moreover, the machined levers, a Bimota offer a wide range of adjustability, ensuring comfort and for every rider.

The aggressive GP body design is finished in the team colours of red and white black carbon fiber, and at a the DB7 seems to be in motion even at rest. In addition, the Bimota carbon fiber instrument chain

guards, licence bracket, and when combined the structural carbon fiber tail section, titanium silencer and the billet aluminium throughout, it’s clear why the and aerodynamic DB7 feels so light and on the track.

DB7 Electronics —

Ease of use, daytime and accuracy are the fundamental elements of the instrumentation, and the DB7 delivers just A big analogue rev counter, paired to a LCD screen with multiple readouts are essential in design and placed for quick access to while underway. The various available are retrieved using the two buttons which are designed for use with gloved hands.

In to the expected displays of time, water temperature and time for the DB7 offers further race features. An ‘over-rev’ indicator also called a ‘shift-light’, is next to the rev-counter and illuminates to the rider that maximum rpm has reached. The instrumentation also complete timing and recording of performance. Actuated by the starter up to 20

laps can be recorded and reviewed your track session. information includes time maximum rpm, and maximum achieved for each lap.
