2013 Bimota DBx 1000

2013 Bimota DBx 1000

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.

Bimota Moto Morini MMB-2 FighterMotard by Oberdan Bezzi

Bimota Moto Morini MMB-2 FighterMotard by Oberdan Bezzi

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.

Bimota Moto Morini MMB-1 by Oberdan Bezzi

Bimota Moto Morini MMB-1 by Oberdan Bezzi

Design guru Oberdan Bezzi has thought at a rather strange, but definitely interesting way to create a whole new V-twin powered Italian motorcycle. Called MMB1, the bike would come as the result of joined forces between Moto Morini and Bimota. The strange part is that MM would have to supply the engine on a bike to be sold with the Bimota name and logo on, but the thing does look plausible.

Our advice: don’t take it to seriously. Moto Morini was recently saved from bankruptcy by Paolo Berlusconi, so this is just Obiboi trying to guess where the company is heading now.

2010 Bimota DB8

2010 Bimota DB8

MCN has got the exclusive story on the new Bimota DB8 and so we managed to find that despite rumors regarding the great possibility for the Italian firm to launch a Ducati Streetfighter/Aprilia Tuono competitor, meaning a dual-seat, 1200cc entry-level naked, the new bike will actually be a veritable superbike that offers the possibility to take your wife or girlfriend along for the ride, as Bimota spokesman Anna Carla Cuneo says: “Bimota customers are used to being surprised with new and innovative motorcycles offering unique design, good power and light weight – and many of them also have a wife or girlfriend that would like to come along. We are sure this design will be a big success.”

Bimota hopes to sell 250 such motorcycles for $33,057 (€23,000) while still producing their DB7 model, which starts at $37,369 (€26,000). It may sound like much for the average superbike buyer, but it is what Bimota considers ‘entry level’, so I guess we weren’t too far off after all.

Built around the same consecrate oval section CroMo hybrid chassis now linked to a aluminum subframe and featuring also Marocchi and Extreme Tech suspension front and rear, it is easy to see how building costs have been reduced, but we should also mention that the DB7’s carbon fiber fairing has been replaced with a cheaper, plastic one.

At least we’re satisfied by the fact that engineers made no concession in the engine department. As a result, the 1198 testastretta evoluzione, 4v twin cylinder 90° develops no less than 170 HP at 9.750 rpm and 131.4 Nm at 8.000 rpm. That’s even more impressive in relation to the 392.4 lbs (178 kg) weight of the bike. This means even more engine performance that the Bimota DB7 for less money. I believe we’re starting to understand the whole affordability thing. Read the full specs after the jump.

This concept directs our thoughts towards urban riders with an exquisite taste for Italian bikes that are supposed to be both adequate for stunt and short distance travel machines.

We totally dig this concept and hope that Bimota does so too.
