Bimota to Pair With BMW

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Bimota will be building a model based around the engine of BMW’s S1000RR. An initial concept of the machine will be shown at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy which runs from November 15th to 18th.

The inline four-cylinder unit from the BMW S1000RR delivers a claimed 193 hp at 13,000 rpm. Bimota first models were based on existing four cylinder engines from Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki. Their hallmark has been motorcycles made using high-quality materials and, on some models, advanced suspension designs.

This will not be the first time Bimota has partnered with BMW. In 1995 and 1996, Bimota produced the BB1 Supermono, built around the BMW F650. Bimota built 376 of the 48 hp, 167 kg sportbikes that year.
