This superbike dares true motorcyclists to get close and indulge in its details. The beauty and drama of the DB8 at a distance is surpassed only by its detail. Each and every assembly, fastener and chassis component is elegantly fashioned and manufactured with care using advanced materials. From billet machined sub-frames, footrests and control levers, no compromise was ever considered nor made. The details are simply spectacular. The DB8’s road manners are inspiring and conﬁdent thanks to the choice of superior materials, suspension, brakes, frame, wheels and controls. Utilising the best components from development partners such as Brembo, Marzocchi and Extreme Tech, combined with Bimota’s own ultra-lite frame, thrilling and track-proven performance is ensured.
Bimota chose to power the DB8 with the spectacular Ducati Testastretta Evoluzione 1198 engine, the world’s most powerful production twin-cylinder, while retaining all the advantages of the L-Twin conﬁguration. It’s a perfect match to the Bimota formula and guarantees excitement and heightened adrenalin with every twist of the throttle.
