Bimota Tesi 3D – The beauty of come alive

The Bimota is a motorcycle everyone involved in the industry should admire. means thesis as it was Engineer thesis at university that lead to the Bimota Tesi 1D in 1990. One, two and three D for the various Ducati engines in the models.

3D’s got a nice meaning to it too as you really need to at this fantastic piece of in 3D to fully appreciate it.

Words: Tor Anacleto Bernabei

Who would thought of adding a swingarm at the rear and at the front of a motorcycle? Marconi and Bimota is the answer. The Tesi 3D is the ultimate hub-steered for the technologically and mechanically minded out there.

Marconi has since the Rimini based Bimota to the currently unfortunate position as CEO for based Benelli.

The basic you need about the hub-steered 3D are that the system separates the braking and turning forces. I had the of riding the Tesi 3D at Misano in then again in 2009 on half wet roads in the hills Rimini and San Marino which is the as the 2012 Tesi 3D Evo apart the upgraded Ducati Evo engine.

Let me first tell you how weird it to turn on the road with the Tesi 3D. Your brain recalibration as the handlebars feels and unresponsive at first. This the case in real life adjusted to the strange sensations. happens on that front end is the arms on bearings interact each other and the pull-rod mono shock at the front.

right, a mono shock at the specially designed by Extremetech on specifications.

So when I push the to steer left or right a hydraulic or really tight damper feel to the movements. braking the feel is similar to doing the same on a BMW with a front end. These are the that characterises how the Tesi 3D different from any other

At Misano the general feeling I had was the faster I entered the corners the the Tesi 3D felt to ride. The end feel must not be mistaken for no at all as it just gets better and the more laps you do. There is no at the front as there is no fork and the crafted headstock looks one that would only a 125cc motorcycle, but that’s all needed.

All the headstock is doing on the 3D is to support the rider’s weight and to a place to mount the controls on. all creates a fantastic completely space between the small and the front wheel.

What may put you off than anything else on a is that there’s a completely new set of coming from the front end you’re used to. It’s a mechanical feel rather the plush feel of a diving Bimota’s own experiences when have let racing riders out on the 3D for the first time are that it some adjustments, but as soon as a gets used to the new feel generally prefer the Tesi 3D to say a more conventional DB5.

One of the main reasons to this is the as you soon start getting incredible feedback from front end not possible on a conventional end. Your feedback is from a beautiful trellis similar to the swingarm at the back and is progress people. Hard over bumps is no problem on the 3D as the suspension deals with separately whilst maintaining of wheel travel for braking

Run out of wheel travel and you’re in and this happens much on a fork than on a hub-steered

Connecting the front and the rear swingarm is the famous Omega consisting of two machined aluminium

The heart of any Bimota these are exclusively of Ducati stock. The L-twin engine produces 95 air-cooled horsepower. But that’s all the help this Bimota because all the electronics are of in-house and in general you can say that this any Ducati engine. There’s no thought of cutting any cost building a Bimota Tesi 3D by

The best parts and materials will always be used. The for instance that the 16 litre tank is made of plastic than carbon fibre is down to a problem getting fibre fuel tanks in the US. So that’s an aftermarket accessory on the 3D.

The sub frame holding the single is all carbon fibre as well as other details. The dry weight is a 168 kilos which is ultra

Despite some last shitty weather I manage to get miles on the road to state road tested the beauty Rimini. The rear end feels any other Bimota rear end and the Attack tyres grip they can. The DS1100 feels and sounds great as and there’s no hiccups, just torque and power all the way.

The ergonomics are not as bad as they look on the There is room even for me, but any than I and you should reconsider. At if you intend to ride the Tesi 3D.

I think of very few other that rival the Tesi 3D as a technological sculpture and every museum in the world should one!

Bimota are currently building Tesi 3D’s to and there’s plans for a Tesi 4D to be within the next two-three


I firmly think the Bimota Tesi 3D is a work of art and master class. Hub-steered has proven to be a very hard venture so please join me in the boys at Bimota and Vyrus for to offer this fantastic If you can afford a hand-built motorcycle almost maintenance free, the Tesi 3D should be high on list of acquisitions to say it that

For all others including myself, the 3D remains a dream bike to over and read about, but never own.

Wouldn’t also you like to see a superbike engine in this soon?
