Bimota came at the EICMA motorcycle show with a completely new super sport model that proves us once more that the company is determined to regain its place among the top dogs in this class.
Its new model is called the BB3 and is a super sport motorcycle powered by the same unit as the BMW S1000RR. The new bike was built with weight saving in mind, therefore the 193 hp developed by the engine need to deal with an ultra light weight rated at only 179 kg. Needles to say that the end result should be pretty impressive.
But power without control is useless; therefore the Bimota BB3 is also fitted with state of the art suspensions signed by Öhlins. You also get a modern composite trellis frame and a carbon fiber body.
As far as safety is concerned, the motorcycle comes with a set of capable Brembo brakes, ABS and traction and wheelie control.
Throw into the mix a pair o Oz rims and an Arrow racing exhaust and you’ll get a fairly unique Bimota that has all it needs be one of the most respected bikes from the streets.
According to some rumors the new Bimota BB3 will be available in a limited run of only 40 units.

We especially like the tubular chrome-molibdenum steel frame finished in a tasty red paint, the angular fuel tank and the sporty headlights.

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.

Bimota showcased its 2013 lineup at the EICMA Motor Show which consists of 19 models. However, most of the bikes remained unchanged and are basically the same models presented in 2011.
Fortunately, the company has also come with a fresh model. To be honest it’s not 100% fresh as is technically a modified version of the 2011 Bimota DB10 B-Motorad.
The DBx is a rugged dual sport bike fitted with Öhlins TTX forks and four-way adjustable shock, Brembo monoblocs (2 x 300mm discs up front, 200mm in the back) and a lot of carbon fiber. Weighting only 385 lbs and powered by a 95 hp engine the new DBx is the lightest and most powerful bike in its class. With 19 inch front and 17 inch (18 inch optional ) rear wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires the Bimota DBx seems ready to conquer any terrain with poise.
Unfortunately, the new bike is only a concept developed to see test the public’s response. Judging by the way it looks and its sporty specs, the new bike could have a pretty bright future and we sincerely hope that Bimota will decide to launch it into production.
Oberdan Bezzi looks keen on the Bimota Moto Morini union that he started with the MMB1 sketch as we’re now looking at his second rendering in this concern. Called MMB2 FighterMotard, the bike seems to combine the streetfighter and hypermotard styles in a way that looks just right.
A simple look at the bike made up by the two Italian brands is enough to spot Granpasso influences, but the low and aggressive stance definitely makes it a streetfighter.
The bike should address to a much larger crowd than that of enduro riders as it would most likely do well in the city, good off the asphalt and excellent down the twisties.
