Here we offer the chance to own a stunning piece of Italian exotica. Our bike is the Bimota DB1 and is genuine one owner UK example registered in April 1987 which has covered just 2, 575 kilometres from new. Supplied in the White, red and green paint scheme. The package also includes the original riders handbook and the original 1987 bill of sale as supplied by "Windy Motors" of Leicester

The Bimota DB1 was manufactured by Bimota between 1985 and 1990 in Rimini, Italy. Originally commissioned by Cagiva, the DB1 was designed by Bimota's Technical Director, and ex-Ducati engineer, Dr. Frederico Martini, and it saved Bimota from almost certain bankruptcy. DB1 stands for Ducati Bimota One, i. e. the first Bimota powered by a Ducati engine.

Being the first all-Italian Bimota it came with a 750 cc Ducati 90° V-twin engine with Desmodromic valve-train. The frame is made of Chrome-Molybdenum steel tubing and uses a Triangulated Upper Space Frame or "Birdcage" design. The engine is a stressed member and the swingarm pivots in engine's crankcase. The DB1s triple-trees, clip-ons, rear-sets and several other bits are made of lightweight, hot stamped and billet Avional 14 aluminum. The Cagiva, Bimota, Ducati, DB1 prototype morphed into the Ducati Paso ironically designed by Bimota co-founder Massimo Tamburini.

This bike really does need to be seen to be fully appreciated, please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or wish to reserve the Bimota. We can offer full finance packages and also arrange delivery both UK and Worldwide.
