Bimota’s 1098-powered DB8 Delirio spied

1 of 1

This first picture has emerged of Bimota’s new DB8 naked motorcycle based on the DB7 superbike.

The bike appears to follow the same principle as the Aprilia Tuono, with just streetfighter handlebars instead of clip-ons and a small nose fairing instead of full plastics separating the new motorcycle from the Ducati-1098 powered DB7.

It’s not clear whether the bike is exactly the same specification as the DB7 sportsbike – the frame, swingarm, suspension and brakes are the same, but you’ll have to wait until its release at the Milan Show in November to find out if the 1098 engine has lost any of its 160bhp.
