2001 Bimota DB4

Just 1km!


Introduced in 1998 and powered by the V-twin from the Ducati 900SS of the time, Bimota chose to fuel the DB4’s 904cc desmo motor via twin 38mm Mikuni carbs in place of the fuel injection system adopted by Ducati.

Although the 80bhp, 60lb/ft and 140mph it delivered wasn’t a match in a straight line for big multi-cylindered sportsbikes, the DB4’s considerable appeal lay in its useable mid-range power and torque, light weight (165kg dry) and old-style Italian charm coupled with a striking tricolore paint job and styling.

As a bonus, reliability also took a step up from Bimota’s usual fare, with the traditional carburettors helping out in this respect. Buyers had the option of either a half or full fairing, with the vast majority opting for the full version with black belly pan.

Most unusually, the DB4 offered here has effectively never been ridden – the odometer shows just 1 kilometre – so of the 264 produced this is very probably the world’s last remaining unused Bimota DB4. This therefore is a great opportunity to acquire a rare piece of Italian sportsbike exotica by one of the most exclusive, low-volume, hand-built manufacturers, and in factory-fresh condition.
