2013 Bimota DB5 E Desiderio - DB5 RE

Posted on by  

The Bimota DB5 E Desiderio offers a perfect combination of comfort and speed. The company says that it was especially developed “to provide the best platform for sports and general road use”.

As far as design is concerned, the Bimota DB5 E Desiderio has all it needs to be considered an attractive motorcycle. We especially like the tubular chrome-molibdenum steel frame finished in a tasty red paint, the angular fuel tank and the sporty headlights. Not to mention about the aerodynamic fairing and the lightweight OZ aluminium forged wheels.

At the heart of this agile beast lies a 90°L twin cylider, 4 strokes power-plant unit with a capacity of 1078cc. The fuel injected engine cranks out a maximum power of 98 hp at 8500 rpm and 10,5 kgm of torque at 5500 rpm which is more than enough to propel the bike to a maximum speed of 230 kmph.
