We always have to be grateful for the pride that some legendary brands use in resisting disappearing and Bimota is living proof of why we don't have to stop supporting brands that have been so long ago. Now Bimota It is positioned as a highly exclusive brand with a peculiar operating system using leading-edge engines from other manufacturers to propel its creations.
Although this year has had some problems and ended up disappearing its Superbike project before its time, they have not stood still and for this next Milan Motor Show they announce at least two new models: a high-performance naked with the option to equip overfeeding and a version of his mythical and peculiar Tesi with café racer style.
The information that we have seen in Visordown comes directly from the Italian brand and ensures that they are finalizing the details of a bike in the naked segment that will equip the Testastretta engine of the Ducati Diavel. On that propeller that gets 162 horsepower as standard, there will be the option of mounting a supercharging system developed by Bimota which will raise the power and torque figures between 15 and 20%.
The 162 horsepower of the Ducati engine would be supercharged to achieve between 15 and 20% more power
It is estimated that final power will not be less than 190 horsepower and which will be known as Bimota Impeto, abandoning at least in part the usual nomenclature of the Italian firm's models. To keep everything under control, it will come equipped with countermeasures such as sports ABS, electronic throttle and traction control. Also among the options we will find some as exclusive as choosing the swingarm and the chassis tubes made of carbon fiber. And all this seasoned with the spectacular Italian design of the brand.
Secondly, Bimota has also announced that it is going to give another air to its very interesting Tesi to create a Bimota Tesi 3D RaceCafe, a version that will combine its groundbreaking, alternative and futuristic look with vintage lines. Among the little we know is that the adjustments include a 23-millimeter lowering of the set touching the geometry of the front and rear swingarms.
And finally, if you are one of those who like to build things to your liking, Bimota gives you the option of acquiring directly from the factory a kit that includes all the parts of the Bimota BB3, the motorcycle with which they have raced in the WSBK, and ride it at home, with the exception of the engine and the electronics that BMW would send you directly.
