Bimota DB8 first test!
We’re in Rimini riding Bimota’s new DB8, which is their first new model since the DB7 was released in June 2008 and this is the very first pre-production machine that exists.
Here’s what Senior Road Tester, Michael Neeves has to say about it:
“The big difference between this and the DB7 superbike is the DB8 has a Ducati 1198 motor (the DB7 had a Ducati 1098 engine), a pillion seat and it is cheaper, the exact price is to be confirmed by Bimota UK soon.

“First impressions are very impressive - the DB8 has excellent road manners, well dialled in suspension and actually steers faster than the Ducati 1198.

“In true Bimota style the build quality is outstanding and it is a fantastic looking machine.”
