Overview

Bimota DB8 Oronero

The Oronero is an exciting evolution of an absolute masterpiece featuring arguably the most intriguing,technically advanced chassis ever to harness an 1198 Ducati 90-degree V-Twin: correct steering geometry, anti-squat characteristics, and balanced weight bias within the same wheelbase as top end superbikes. Seat height is just 80cm, an outstanding achievement on a sportbike so compact, and the saddle is pushed as far forward as possible for a short reach to the clip-ons, very comfortable for the power output.

The extra rigidity of the Oroneros complete handmade carbon fibre frame and swingarm results in a remarkable, lighter overall weight, enhancing the precise steering and responsiveness. Then there’s the greater power-to-weight ratio, which contributes even more to its very impressive acceleration and throttle response. At a certain level of aggression, this Bimota is so incredibly responsive and surefooted with supreme agility and stability, a sweet feeling of near invincibility. A touch of exclusiveness that sets you apart in any crowd. Equipped with the latest GPS technology onboard. Handcrafted sport motorcycles are the only thing that Bimota creates, and they are its singular motivation. The DB8 Oronero is the manifestation of all the pride, dreams and talent of Bimota.
