bimota, an italian motorcycle company, specializes in tailor made machines specific to the visions of a single rider. the engineering team are masters at manufacturing carbon fiber front and rear swing-arm bikes. to this day, they are the only company in the world still focused on developing the distinctive swing-arm arrangement. at EICMA 2015, bimota showed their third edition – the ‘tesi 3D raceface’.

the motorcycle features a 803cc l-twin four stroke engine attached to a six speed chain drive transmission. the main chassis is made from aluminum alloy plates, with structural carbon fiber front and rear swing-arms. the 2100mm long motorcycle also includes two massive ohlins monoshock suspension systems for both the rear and front wheels to handle tough compressions indistinguishable to a regular fork system. the unique front suspension transfers loads through the swing-arm while still minimizing the drop of the front, allowing for better control through turns at maximum speeds. check out our full coverage of EICMA 2015 here.
