Bimota debuted at the 2013 EICMA show its new S1000RR-powered Bimota BB3 sport bike.
Using the 999cc four-cylinder superbike motor found on the BMW, the Italians quote 190hp for the Bimota BB3, the same as what the Germans have been able to coax from the S1000RR. Weight is 394 lbs dry, also the same as the BMW S1000RR, so on paper the two bikes appear to be quite similar. In person though, they are anything but.
Bimota has applied the same general design aesthetic to the BB3 that it has done with its current DB line of Ducati-powered motorcycles. A steel trellis frame is mated to alloy plates, which comprises the chassis, while choice bits from Brembo, Öhlins, and OZ abound.
