Bimota is a manufacturer of exclusive sports motorcycles that epitomise Italian flare and engineering excellence. Founded in Rimini in 1973 by Valerio Bianchi, Giuseppe Morri, and Massimo Tamburini, the company name is derived from the first two letters of each of the three founders surnames. Because of the poor state of frame design in the 1970s, Bimota concentrated initially on building high-quality motorcycle chassis around existing engines and chassis kits for road and race bikes, initially basing their bikes on the top models from Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki. As standard frame design improved Bimota offered exclusive limited edition hand made bikes for riders who wanted to stand out from the crowd.

The HB3 was Bimota’s third design based around a Honda engine, in this case the CB1100F DOHC air-cooled four cylinder motor. The styling was by one of Bimotas founders Massimo Tamburini who later penned the iconic Ducati 916 and it is thought that only 101 HB3s were made, 43 half faired and 58 fully faired. This HB3 is offered in good original and standard condition. It has recently been imported from Japan, not yet registered it comes supplied with a NOVA number and the official Japanese de-reg docs including the translation needed when it is to be UK registered.
