Bimota is a manufacturer of exclusive sports motorcycles that epitomise Italian flare and engineering excellence. Founded in Rimini in 1973 by Valerio Bianchi, Giuseppe Morri, and Massimo Tamburini, the company name is derived from the first two letters of each of the three founders surnames. Because of the poor state of frame design in the 1970s, Bimota concentrated initially on building high-quality motorcycle chassis around existing engines and chassis kits for race bikes, initially basing their bikes on the top models from Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki. The YB11 used the Yamaha Thunderace engine in a beautiful twin spar frame surrounded by top quality European chassis and brake components.
This YB11 has been part of a large and fascinating collection of bikes ranging from the 1980s up until the early 2000s. The vendor has enjoyed searching out examples of more or less all of the bikes he either owned or wanted in the day, but after amassing over 30 assorted models, from a Honda MT50 through to a couple of Bimotas, he's decided to downsize his collection. The bike is offered for sale in good standard and original condition with a high quality selection of components from suppliers such as Brembo and Paioli, a beautifully engineered alloy frame and typically stylish bodywork. A perfect blend of Italian style with Japanese quality, the bike has not been run for a couple of years so will need some recommissioning and comes supplied with a current V5C.
