Bimota Tesi 3D

In a time of highly competitive markets, wholly subject to the pressures of globalization, values like genuine Passion, Talent, Skill, Courage and maniacal Love for perfection often seem to belong to an altogether different world. Exactly these values are what we are all about at Bimota. Our motorcycles capture and represent the essence of a decidedly different approach – the only approach we feel comfortable taking.

The eagerly awaited TESI 3D Concept, first introduced at the 2006 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy, is the standard-bearer for Bimota’s cutting-edge technology of emotion. The TESI 3D, like all Bimota motorcycles, embodies all of the character and DNA of a small company that knows how to think big. Bimota is fully committed to the pursuit of excellence and the continuous refinement of our already state-of-the-art technologies.

Concentrating on innovative technical solutions, the TESI 3D has been developed entirely by our in-house staff at the Bimota factory in Rimini. Italy. Dressed in our traditional color-scheme of white, red, and gold, the motorcycle is propelled by a Ducati 1079cc engine.

While featuring the original Hub-Steering developed by Bimota, the Tesi 3D Concept boasts several new developments and refinements: The front and rear swing utilize a trellis structure similar to the rear swing of our DB5 and DB6 series’ models. Also the front suspension has been radically redesigned and now uses a pull-rod mechanism with the hydraulic suspension located low beside the engine. Carbon body-parts and cowling, forged alloy wheels, and radial disc brakes are further features of the new TESI 3D. The frame consists of light alloy.

The TESI 3D is equipped with a Ducati 1100 DS engine with a displacement of 1079cc, giving the motorcycle significantly more horsepower compared to its predecessor. The electrical environment is developed by Bimota.

Bimota Tesi 3D – Development

The eagerly awaited Tesi 3D Concept, first introduced at the 2006
EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy, is the standard-bearer
for Bimota’s cutting-edge technology of emotion. The Tesi 3D,
like all Bimota motorcycles, embodies all of the character and
DNA of a small company that knows how to think big. Bimota is
fully committed to the pursuit of excellence and the continuous
refinement of our already state-of-the-art technologies.
Concentrating on innovative technical solutions, the Tesi 3D has
been developed entirely by our in-house staff at the Bimota factory
in Rimini, Italy. The team dedicated to this exciting new project
has been headed by Andrea Acquaviva. Working with him are
Eleonora Tagliaventi, Ing. Danilo Donates, Enrico Borghesan,
David Comandini, Gianni Piccone, Carl Iezzoni, and Luca Loris,
who is at the same time responsible for all product development at
the Bimota Factory.
Dressed in our traditional color-scheme of white, red, and gold, the
motorcycle is propelled by a Ducati 1079cc engine.
While featuring the original Hub-Steering developed by Bimota,
the Tesi 3D Concept boasts several new developments and
refinements: The front and rear swing utilize a trellis structure
similar to the rear swing of our DB5 and DB6 series’ models. Also
the front suspension has been radically redesigned and now uses a
pull-rod mechanism with the hydraulic suspension located low
beside the engine. Carbon body-parts and cowling, forged alloy
wheels, and radial disc brakes are further features of the new Tesi
3D. The frame consists of light alloy.
The TESI 3D is equipped with a Ducati 1100 DS engine with a
displacement of 1079cc, controlled by a state-of-the-art electronic
system developed by Bimota. This exclusive system boosts poweroutput
to 95 hp, and torque to 10,5 kgm at 5000rpm, while
satisfying the high emission standards imposed by Euro-3.
Another characterizing element of the Tesi 3D is its dashboard,
providing the rider with a wide variety of important information
during the ride and after: oil temperature, air temperature, and
ufficio stampa bimota
injection settings, to mention a few. Moreover a survey system
records essential data during every turn, up to the recent 20 turns.
The body of the Tesi 3D is completely manufactured from carbon
fibre, the wheels from forged aluminium. In combination with the
exclusive frame-plates and other features of the Tesi 3D, this
model once again carries forward Bimota’s uncompromising
dedication to design determined by function – Technology of
Emotion in its purest form.
