Bimota Tesi 3 D Carbonio

The YB10 Dieci represents the of the series YB6 and YB8, with the cylinder 1000 cc Yamaha Compared with previous the riding position has been improved, the handlebars are 2 cm higher and are 1.5 cm higher. The rear suspension has 10 mm of range, but the biggest change is the new down front Marzocchi

Remember the film Ten? Dudley Moore as a middle composer, lusting after Bo Derek, whose briefly gorgeousness persuaded … Dud to award her a perfect score of then abandon everything to chase?Bimota’s curvaceous creation provoke a similar response a few desperate bike fanciers, but in is more down to earth. In their latest Yamaha model the dieci (the means ten in Italian) the Rimini are not claiming perfection but merely a logical addition to their YB which had previously reached the film title fits the nicely, though, and not just the Bimota relates all to easily to all the comments about classy and designer clothes.

The YB blend of engines and alloy twin frames has been a round a time in terms of State of the Art designs, and if a motorcycle has gradually honed and refined towards the ten out of ten limit of its potential then is it.Movie star level s of and flawless beauty are taken for on any 15,000 motorcycle, especially one Rimini. What Bimota done with the Dieci is from the components that gone before, tweaked of them a bit added a new look, presented the finished motorcycle as the in the line of beam framed stretching back to the FZ 750 engined Mind you I remember they last year’s Bellaria be the final one in the series too

The Dieci is a replacement for the YB8, just to confuse matters was released as the YB6 exup. As its moniker that original hunk of a was produced by dangling Yamaha’s equipped FZR 1000 mill Bimota’s satiny-sleek and stupendously pair of aluminium beams. The that followed last progressed to upside down and fuel injection, but reverted to the 989cc FZR motor because did not want to use the newer engine its exup exhaust power system.

They have to that decision with the which basically consists of a YB8 power plant in a modified chassis. Instead of hiding fuel injection, the YB8 fairing has redesigned to improve the intake to the 38mm downdraught Mikuni’s a that chief engineer Marconi reckons removes the old slight power dip at 6000 can’t say I ever noticed it, but no he is right.Peak power is unchanged at but the new shape is also claimed to add a few mph to a top speed that one foreign has tested at 172 mph. The upside forks, too, have borrowed from the Tuatara and on with the aim of giving the Bimota performance through increased strength and cornering power.

But it is in the comfort as much as the handling the Dieci is intended to have the over its predecessor, for the bike has a modified riding position and suspension aimed at giving travel without reducing clearance. The upside downers a 15mm greater … the YB8’s conventional Marzocchi and can be for compression and rebound by twiddling the at their tops — leg rebound, right for compression.

The end is softened a tad to match by the simple of backing off the multiple adjustable pre load by 5mm, hardly a move but one guaranteed to chip further at the Bim’s reserves of clearance. To counter that the have been raised by the skimpy single seats has grown by a similar amount and the ons have moved from normal spot below the from solid top yoke to be above it.Sitting on the Dieci in the pit lane first thing on a December morning, my first was that the bike felt despite its raised seat, and wide, pushing my legs out to the fiberglass that runs the fop of the main spars. The bar, seat relationship has hardly so this is still an ultra motorcycle, tight and tucked up.

The Dieci felt as aggressive and edged as any Bimota as I aimed its twin head lamped out onto the little Adriatic circuit.Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay the is that for the next half a laps, until my first was over, I was barely aware of it. seriously impressive figures 149bhp and a dry weight of 407 lb (65 lb down on a FZR) mixing in a twisty, remembered and patchily resurfaced track, then adding a wind that was trying to my eyeballs over the inside of my could have been a for trouble. Instead the Dieci barely have been or much more civilized to — or much faster to that.

Forcing myself to the bike in the pits afterwards, my shaky opening comments of power everywhere emphasizes the most obvious characteristic is the seamless torrent of 20 valve that is always, just available at the other end of the throttle Dieci may have fractionally instant low rev throttle response the injected Tuatara, any difference is slight, but the bike pulls and so strongly from idle to its redline that at least one of its gears always feels

The standard FZR engine is exceptionally and strong, Bimota’s mild with induction modifications and less restrictive four one-pipe makes it better has one superb left hand that goes on and on for ages, out and getting slightly faster all the The Dieci could be short and then powered round and the rear Michelin Hi Sport fat sticky foot digging its in determinedly all the way, until I was onto the back straight my head behind the low screen, the howling and the stylish red and black — no Tuatara digital here — unwinding an indicated 175mph.Then it was hard on the drilled, hugely powerful Brembo’s into the following left-hander as hard as I dare.

The front wheel, lightweight and geometry made steering Occasionally there would be a flutter as the back went but the upside down Marzocchi felt wonderfully firm and in the day the forkless Tesi would a new element of control when into the same bend, but the forks felt impressively and the chassis rigidity, the classy Marzocchi and the grip of the chubby Hi meant that the Dieci be powered though and out of the turns harder than it went in.

Ground clearance? I could not its limits I’m afraid, trying pretty hard and out a pair knee scraper in the downer was the occasional discovery of a neutral going into a — once when coolly whisked past a mounted rival hack on the only to find myself driveless and helpless ahead of him in mid I wasn’t the only rider to the problem but Yamaha’s latest FZR is a lot better than the one the Tuatara had to

So it is likely that adjusting the position would have it.As for the comfort advantage the Dieci has bee designed to provide its forebears, neither the smooth of a racetrack nor the series of short we had on the bike were likely to much chance of assessing Logic suggests that suspension should help, And it is hard to deny that most previous Bimota’s on the for any length of time has always pretty tough on wrists and a no compromise sportster the Dieci soaked up Misano’s few surface without complaint, yet without any of the instant feedback that the bike so easy to ride The difference between this and the FZR based Bimota is just a few of course, a couple of mph on the clock, a new set of a remolded piece of fiberglass, a few pounds

. They have all been fast and fine handling, beautiful and depressingly expensive.The too, is all of those things. For the few with the chance to own one, the on whether it is the best big Bimota yet depend as much on their of the colour scheme and shape as to the improvements in fork rigidity and thing is sure though, the get ten out of ten from me.
