Default Bimota 2013 bike

Bimota have taken the BMW S1000 engine and wrapped it up in the perfectly detailed parts that you expect from Bimota . They have given it 80s styling but apparently thats on purpose and it supposed to hark back to those times but with the handling of a modern bike .As always it going to be more expensive than a house .

I truly wish they hadn't done the 80's styling, that's the first bimota bike I don't like....

I can dig it. Hell I actually think it looks better than the S1000rr with its retarded non-symmetry and gills on one side.

Other than the twin headlights and perhaps the graphics scheme I'm struggling to pick much 80's influence.

The Bimota that really has my interest however is the DB11.

Spent a few minutes looking at it.
At first I was rather neutral. However the more I look at it the more I like it.
