It seems that the Bimota market is quite actively lately and it's not even summer! If you're looking to pick up a Bimota, this is a good time to do it so keep checking for our new posts!
This week we have yet another Bimota for sale - a 1994 DB2:
This is a 2 owner bike w/ 17225 miles. It has NEVER been ridden in the rain, and ALWAYS garage kept!
It has never been crashed but has fallen over due to a friend not knowing about the suicide stand.
All the bodywork is original, but needs paint.
The original owner had the dealer install the factory $8000.00 race kit before it was ever ridden!
The big bore kit and heads were done by Fast by Ferracci from 904cc to 944cc.
This bike has a long list of other carbon, titanium and aluminum upgrades to many to list!
I am asking $15,000 OBO or trade for a Ducati Hypermotard, NOTHING ELSE! so please don't ask.
The DB2 is one of my favourites, utilizing the Ducati 900SS air-cooled lump - the DB2 is one of the more popular models with approx. 400 made in total. Famed Brit motorcycle journo Sir Alan Crashcart Cathcart even raced a DB2 - not sure for how long or in what race series, but I do remember it being sold on ebay for approx $10,000+.
Now this specific sample has very high mileage (for a Bimota), and although it claims to have the the "race kit" (to my knowledge that includes FCR carbs and a full exhaust), it's not in its original paint (big no-no for any serious Bimota collector) and the 944cc kit, although nice, if also not a factory option. More concerning is that The $15,000 asking price is way too steep for the bike in this condition. There was a really nice DB2 listed on here back in June asking only $10,999, and more recently a Motocorse equipped DB4 for only $10,000 OBO.
Personally, I would offer around 7-8K+ only for this one.
