Bimota isn’t just a one-trick pony, stuffing other manufacturer’s motors into their own trick superbike chassis. Not at all! They do the same thing for hypermotards and enduros, as well …

Along with an upgraded version of their DB10R hypermotard (still running the 1078 cc Ducati motor, but with upgraded carbon-fibre bits, says Asphalt and Rubber), Bimota also showed off a high-tech dual-sport, the DBX.

How high-tech are we talking? This 95 hp, 175 kg (dry) dual sport has dual Brembo Monobloc brake calipers (with 300 mm discs up front, single 200 mm disc in back), Ohlins TTX forks and four-way adjustable rear shock, and billet aluminum and carbon fibre bits bolted on everywhere they could justify the cost … and likely some places they couldn’t.

  1. they need to hire a graphic designer, with such high ends parts the colours still like cheesy, like the concept even if i find it a little exagerated (who needs a 1100cc in the mud ?!), look a bit chinese whereas its from italia
