The Bimota Tesi 1D's most distinctive feature is its unusual hub centre steering instead of the more traditional telescopic forks used on most other bikes, a feature which the Tesi 1D passed over to the later Bimota Tesi 2D. The front suspension is handled by an offset mono-shock concealed by the all enveloping futuristic bodywork.

The hub centre steering on the Tesi 1D did offer improved ride characteristics, unfortunately as a result of using this steering system the Tesi 1D has an enormous turning circle making low speed maneuvering a problem. The Tesi 1D's steering control rods also need to be checked, adjusted and replaced at intervals. The Tesi 1D uses a Ducati 851 sourced motor which was increased to 904cc in 1992 by increasing the stroke.
