The Bimota DB4 was a stylish lightweight sports bike which featured, as expected from Bimota, a well balanced chassis stuffed with an engine from another manufacturer. In this case it's a V-twin from Ducati, the 900ss to be precise.

The internals of the engine are unchanged from the Ducati, although Bimota add their own exhaust and also replace the fuel injection system with Mikuni carbs and an in-house designed airbox.

It's a small bike in size, and light too. That means taller riders might find it a bit uncomfortable. Short to average riders will fit quite nicely.

Highlights of the Bimota DB4's chassis include Paioli front forks, an Ohlins rear monoshock and Brembo brakes. These, combined with a well designed frame, make the Bimota DB4 a beautifully balanced machine. Not the fastest in a straight line, but straight lines are boring.
