Bimota SB6

Bimota SB6

For decades, Italian motorcycle manufacturers have provided pristine products.  In an ever-expanding array of shapes and sizes, their common denominator has always been style.  Such machines certainly passed through a set of factory gates in Rimini - those belonging to Bimota.

Over the years, Bimota have used a variety of proprietary powerplants - Suzuki, Kawasaki, Ducati - and mated them with their own bodywork and cycle parts.  In the case of the SB6, it was Suzuki's GSX-R1100 motor which piled on the coals ... up to a top speed of 175mph!

The names of the three men who founded the firm were Bianchi, Morri and Tamburini - voilĂ , 'BiMoTa'.  It was right that they were so referenced.  For 30 years, Bimota have pushed the envelope - of performance, development and design.  The SB6 is testament to that!
