Bimota SB8-R

Available from
1999 to 2000
Bimota took Suzuki's TL1000R engine and gave it massive 59mm throttle bodies, all looked after by a Magneti Marelli ecu. The bike has a carbon fibre composite frame, fully self-supported carbon fibre seat unit, variable rake and Ohlins rear shock.
Ultra rare. With few Bimota dealers in the country, getting hold of parts and servicing could be a problem.
Designed to put Bimota back on the map and they used many inovitive ideas never seen on a road bike. It's ultra rare. But believe it or not Bimota made an even rarer version, the SB8-RS made only to order.
