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.”
