Bimota added two new models to its range powered with the Ducati Testastretta engine, the Bimota Impeto naked-bike and the Bimota Tesi 3D RaceCafe Carbon.
The Bimota Impeto completes the DB8 and DB9 line, since the DB8 is fully faired, the DB9 has a part fairing, and now the Bimota Impeto removes the bodywork entirely.
The fram, engine and fuel tank are carried over, but the huge LED headlight is new, as is the tail. The chassis combines billet aluminum with tubular sections, and there's the usual off-the-shelf Ohlins and Brembo bits in terms of suspension and brake performance. Already making 119kW, Bimota also introduced a supercharger that can be fitted to any of its Testastretta-powered models which Bimota claim is good for a 20 percent performance boost. It's pretty mad, but Bimota's other new model makes the Impeto look less interesting.
The Bimota Tesi 3D Racecafe Carbon is powered by Ducati's air-cooled 803cc engine, and the styling is reworked in something approximating a cafe racer mold, albeit one fitted with the world's weirdest suspension. Oh, and the trellis-style front and rear swingarms on e the new Bimota Tesi are made using carbon tubing rater than metal.Tag: BimotaImpetoTesi 3D RaceCafe CarbonCafe RacerTestastrettaV-TwinTesi 3DNaked-Bike
