2013 Bimota Tesi 3D E

Posted on by  

The Bimota Tesi 3D is packed with a series of modern technologies which help it deliver first class performances. It combines the attributes of a naked with all the features offered by a sport bike, being able to deliver a comfortable riding position and a capable handling.

Talking about performances, the bike is propelled by a 90°L twin cylider, 4 strokes engine with a capacity of 1078cc. The fuel injected engine puts out 98 hp at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 10,5 kgm at 5500 rpm.

In terms of style, the Bimota Tesi 3D features a compact design combined with an agile stance and sharp lines. We also need to send a shout at the two tubular swing arms, which underline the unique character of the Bimota brand. Out back you’ll find a modern layout for the exhausts pipes which are placed under the seat.

Bimota Tesi 3D E

An outstanding experience

From Pierluigi Marconi’s project (named after his own graduation thesis) to the actual Tesi 3D, realised thanks to Andrea Acquaviva and Enrico Borghesan’s work, the philosophy of the project is never changed.

The TESI is able to enhance the rider’s confidence and cornering ability, letting him know since the very start a whole new potential of decent handling. No load transfer, faster entry speed and corners "like it’s on rails" no matter the speed level.

It is a very accurate bike, that thanks to lack of load transfer allows a harder braking than any machine of previous generations.

Combining the virtues of a naked motorcycle with sport bike features, praised for its riding position and compactness.

Design

Bimota Tesi 3D E

The Tesi project third evolution is a really compact bike with an extreme design. The TESI 3DE is defined by its space age lines such as its two tubular swing arms, exquisite detail by Bimota.

Rear end design and function are a work of art, where the exhausts are placed under the seat giving the bike racing style.

Precious alloy plates machined from solid are left purposely on sight to enhance the view. This is the feather in Bimota’s cap since most of the brand technologic history is summed up in this model.

Technology

Bimota Tesi 3D E

TESI 3DE is a masterpiece of mechanical engineering.

A project that’s seen the light in 1991 when the TESI 1D turned out, with the aim to improve load transfer on the front end while braking. A system based on a front mono shock activated by a mechanism that allows turning.

It comes with a load-bearing engine, the frame is finished with two Omega-shape lateral alloy plates that bond the front to the rear end.

The rear suspension uses a cantilever system and a traditional fully-adjustable mono shock. The brake system is designed by Bimota and both the 320mm and the radial piston assure a powerful braking.

Aluminium forged wheels are just another detail that guarantee lightness and quality of TESI 3D.

90° L twin cylinder engine 1078cc and a max power of 100hp. Its starting system is a project fully developed by Bimota aimed to ensure a perfect pulling power throughout the rev range.
