Bimota DB9 Brivido first ride: 'One of my top bikes of 2012'

We had to twist Bimota's arm really hard to let us ride their new DB9 Brivido. After a few months of emails and phone calls trying to set up this test, we decided to bite the bullet and literally turn up on the doorstep of their factory in Rimini, Italy. I’m honoured. No one outside of Bimota’s small test team has...

interesting

Looks great, probably sounds delicious too ! And proof it would seem that you dont always have to saturate something in electronics and gadgetry to produce an involving fun experience !!! Something perhaps for the moto gp rule makers to think of when deciding those regs soon....

Not bad at all

I usually don't care for their re-packaged Ducati engines.  But this appeals to me.  But I have to ask:

How in the hell do you remove the radial mounted caliper from that rim mounted disc?  You can't just remove the caliper bolts and pull the caliper away from the disc.  The brake mount won't let you pull it to the inside and the disc prevents you from pulling in the other direction.  Do you have to remove the wheel?  Whose bright idea was that?

Cross a Diavel with a Buell and a I think a dash of KTM and look what you end up with..........  hmmmmmm

Still think if I was to shell out for a Bimota it would have to be the DB7

Remove caliper bolts. Slide caliper round the disc anti-clockwise beyond the mount points. Caliper slides off disc to the inside. Looks like it would work?

You got it, I believe.  I didn't pay attention to the hose length or sliding it around.
