2014 Bimota DB11

Posted on by  

Thanks to its sporty DNA, the Bimota DB11 can deal effortless with anything you ask of it. The DB11 is based on the DB8, and features a fresh style and a carbon fibre body work.

The motorcycle weighs 175 Kg and is built around an 1198 cc, Ducati Desmodromic L-twin cylinder Testastretta II engine which generates a maximum power of 162 hp at 9500 rpm and 131 Nm of torque at 7700 rpm. The engine is mated to a six speed gearbox and is housed by a NiCrMo4 steel trellis frame.

Because power without control is useless, the Bike needed a set of matching suspensions. Therefore, it rides on sporty Marzocchi Ø43mm upside down forks with adjustable preload, rebound and compression damping, and an Extreme Tech rear monoshock adjustable in preload, high and low speed rebound and compression damping.
