Bimoto DB8 Biposto

Vyrus Motorcycles

The new Bimota DB8 Biposto was expected to be a naked version of the DB7, but the Italian brand has instead taken the DB8 in a new direction. With a biposto (two-seat) configuration, and cheaper price tag, Bimota hopes the DB8 will serve as the brandís entry level motorcycle. Helping Bimota achieve the more affordable price point is a compromise in materials. Instead of its usual carbon fiber bodywork, the DB8 has plastics pieces. Instead of a titanium exhaust, one made out of steel has been used in its place. And where the carbon sub-frame once was, an all aluminum one resides. The DB8 also uses lower-spec suspensions pieces, which with the rest of these changes help differentiate the two-seater from the DB7, which retains the older 1098cc Ducati motor and single-seat configuration.

For those who were hoping to see a naked DB7 today, donít fret too much. Bimota says they still plan on making that motorcycle, it just wonít be called the DB8. For now, Ducati Streetfighter owners can breathe a sigh of relief in that regard.

The DB8 will retail for about $35,500 which is still a fairly large price tag for many buyers, which makes you wonder how effective this ďcheaperĒ Bimota will be at bringing in new customers.
