Bimota Tesi 3D (2007-current)

The hub-centre steered Bimota Tesi is back. This is the third generation Bimota Tesi: the 3D. It costs £19,600 and is powered by the Ducati Multistrada 1100 engine. Although the Bimota Tesi is beautifully made, it’s a very cramped motorcycle and the quirky front end doesn’t have anywhere near the feel of a well set-up pair of forks. The cheaper ...

Bimota Tesi 3D: World first ride

MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves has just become the first rider, other than Bimota personnel, to ride the third generation Bimota Tesi, the 3D. "Just one example of this radical, hub-centre steered machine currently exists, and that is in the form of a pre-production development mule. I rode with Bimota's test rider on the roads around the Italian firm's factory ...

Tesi 3D goes testing

Bimota has released these snapshots of the new Tesi 3D undergoing final stages of development. The 3D is the latest evolution of Bimota’s hub-steer bikes dating back to the 1980s. The Tesi is famed for it’s rock-solid handling and stability, and this latest Ducati 1100DS-powered bike should continue that. The initial run of limited run bikes should be in dealers ...

Bimota V-Due (1997-1998)

Only in Italy could someone bet the company's future on a complex, high tech, ridiculously expensive two-stroke, which couldn't compete with a 1000cc superbike of the time. The gamble was taken by Bimota in 1997, when (after eight years of development) the V-Due 500cc two-stroke appeared, and was almost universally slated as a rough-running, not particularly fast, oddball motorcycle for ...

Bimota SB8R (1999-2000)

Exotic, ultra-rare and built with a level of attention few manufacturers can match. But unlike the Bimotas of previous decades, the SB8R doesn’t radically out perform Japanese competition of the same time. It does manage to be a little better though and race success backed this up. Lack of dealer back up makes ownership worrying.

Bimota SB6 (1994-1999)

For many The SB6/7 is the pinnacle of old school Bimota craft. The recipe back then was simple: take the best and most powerful Japanese engines and wrap them in the most exquisite and fine handling hand-made Italian chassis and bodywork. The SB6/7 had hairy Suzuki GSX-R engines, sublime handling and craftsmanship and characteristically Italian unreliability and fickleness. After this, ...

Bimota Mantra (1995-2002)

”What the hell is that?” is likely to be the first comment from anyone who sees you ride into town on a Bimota Mantra. But don't be scared, underneath designer Sacha Lakic's tribute to Buck Rogers sci-fi there's a sensible Ducati-engined cruiser/roadster. A claimed 85bhp from the old 904cc Duke motor, plus classy suspension and chassis detailing make the Bimota ...

Bimota DB5S (2005-current)

The latest Bimota DB5 shows a change of philosophy. No longer are their motorcycles uncompromising track motorcycles with hand built chassis enabling them to outperform the Japanese engine donor motorcycles. No, the Japanese are too good so the Bimota DB5 is simply a beautifully crafted bike for rapid road riding and top level posing.
