Bimota's supercharged Testastretta-powered Impeto and Tesi 3D RaceCafe debut in Milan

Bimota reveals hyper-naked making up to around 190hp and cafe racer version of Tesi 3D

HERE's Bimota's supercharged Impeto and Tesi 3D RaceCafe, which have just been shown for the first time at the Eicma motorcycle show in Milan.

The Impeto is described as a 'hyper-naked' using the 162hp Testastretta engine from Ducati’s Diavel, with an optional supercharger giving the 1198cc V-twin a boost in power and torque of 15-20%.

The firm says the supercharger kit has been developed for Bimotas using Ducati liquid-cooled engines and turns the new Impeto into a ‘true tyre burner’.

The Impeto comes with ABS, ride-by-wire throttle and traction control, and can be offered with carbon fibre swing-arm and frame tubes.

The ‘Tesi 3D RaceCafe’ is a café racer version of the existing hub-centre-steered Tesi 3D Naked.

It can be raised or lowered by up to 23mm by adjusting the front and rear swing-arms, the firm said.

For people who want to build their own Bimota, the firm is offering a kit version of its BMW S1000RR-powered BB3. 

The ‘BB3 Kit’ consists of a ‘complete rolling chassis with all the necessary parts to build a fully functional motorcycle except for the engine and electric/electronic systems that come from BMW’.
