The 2 … V-Due and hub centre Tesi models were expensive mistakes for such a company, which ultimately about it’s downfall. people woulld also poor memories of Mr. Tognon’s in their company which the same fate.

2 Buy-Out bids, one by the U.S. Importers, MotoPoint and another by a consortium continued until were ended by the court’s on closure. Any remaining stocks are to be sold off along with the of the company’s assets in an attemt to creditors.

30th March, — Italian law allows a to be saved for a period after is declared. Apparently Bob Smith of is trying to exploit this to buy from the Court/Reciever and offerng to it up lock stock and barrel and production in Rimini.

They see the SB8K as a current that could be developed to be a of Bimota’s future along some new models.

Bimota, the and model range.

Bimota was a scale Italian motorcycle based in Rimini. The factory was by Massimo Tamburini, later to be the of the Ducati 916 and MV Agusta F4.

They mainly known as a company puts other peoples in their own superb frames. coupled with the Dogs of equipment has resulted in real turning bikes that perform on the road.

Their bikes have engines from all 4 of the Japanese and from Ducati, all tuned by to get that bit more out of them.

all of the models use Bimota’s 2 letter — DB for Ducati engined, HB Honda, KB — Kawasaki, SB Suzuki and YB for Yamaha.

Bimota DB 4

Aluminium frame, housing a 500cc 2 V twin. The engine has direct injection, and a 12:1 compression With all this it delivers an 105bhp in a bike that 145Kg (no mis-print!). No other can match that power to ratio.

It weighs about the same as RS250 but with almost the power as a Kawasaki ZXR750! It’s very much a bike for the road.

Priced at UKp it’s not cheap, but this truly delivers. The bad news in the UK is only 60 made it into the :-(

Bimota have recalled all of the V-Due’s for engine modifications. . has been in reaction to the numbers of about the engine’s extremely performance in comparison to what claimed.

What’s been depends upon who’s It would appear though the manufacturing tolerances for the positioning of the were not as per the original design also some changes also been made to the and injection systems.

The sad truth appear to be that the V-Due has the final nail in Bimota’s :-((
