About Bimota Motorcycles
The land of engines
Italy’s Emilia Romagna region, the home of Bimota, is the technical and cultural heart of
Italian motorcycle passion, development and manufacture. The design and engineering
of sport motorcycles and automobiles in this province, known as the ‘terra dei motori’
(the land of engines), is simply a way of life. Today it remains fertile ground for the most
exciting new design concepts and performance advancements for racing and street-legal
Since the 70’s, Bimota has produced distinct sport motorcycles with innovative solutions
to motorcycle design, construction and chassis dynamics, most notably that of advanced
hybrid-trellis frames, development of hub-center steering and extreme attention to
Ultimate sport bikes
The engines selected by Bimota are acquired directly from the world’s top producers.
Over the years, production included power plants from Ducati, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda
and Kawasaki. Most models were initially developed as race only machines. The popular
Japanese and European engines, mated to the advanced Bimota chassis and components,
have always been considered the ultimate custom sport bikes, and the marque of choice
for the most sophisticated riders.
The performance advantages of a Bimota motorcycle have been widely recognised by
both street riders and competitive racers alike. Bimota race bikes have carried such
great names as Virginio Ferrari, Davide Tardozzi, Johnny Cecotto, Stefan Mertens,
Giancarlo Falappa, Randy Mamola and many others to victories on the world stage.
The pride of details
Bimota’s unique position in the history of Italian sport bikes, one of technical innovation,
unique design, hand-crafting and uncompromising component quality, has always been
the primary directive and soul of Bimota. Since the rebirth of Bimota in 2003, these
priorities have taken shape in the new generation models DB5, DB6 Delirio and Tesi
3D, all powered exclusively by Ducati Desmo engines. Together, in the world of sport
motorcycles, these three model families make an outstanding offer in the Super Sport
(DB5), Sport Special (Tesi 3D), and Sport Naked (DB6) segments of the market. Every
Bimota motorcycle is proudly designed, engineered and manufactured by hand solely in
the Bimota factory in Rimini, Italy.
