Yes, it's running the 1000RR Bemmer power plant, with a claimed 190hp. They have to produce a minimum of 1000 units by next December, so a few lucky Ozzy's may get their hands on one.

Makes you laigh when the BMW S1000RR can be had for around $20k on road. I'd expect the Bimota will be nearly double that.

Bimota is Back

Post  bruiser2310 on Thu 20 Feb 2014, 11:18 pm

Yes I Have seen a DB8 and sat on it in Australia.
Been told 3 in Australia so far.Standard is 48 grand but the big 1, full race is 98 from what I`m told.
To look at they are a work of art.I could have stood and looked for hours.
With a duke 1198 sitting under it the bike is very slim and looks small with a 19 litre tank to boot.
You have to see to admire the quality of work put into this hand made machine.
Would be nice to have money........................lol
still prefer a Bandit, parts are easier to get.
