Hometown Hero – 2009 Bimota DB7

After many years using superbike engines from Japan's leading manufacturers, Bimota started a new chapter with Ducati and developed a 1098cc testastretta-engined special. A Scottsdale collector-car dealer presents this bespoke superbike with only 1,621 miles.

Ducati's modern and water-cooled L-twin develops 160hp and is housed in the complex and beautiful combination of oval-tube trellis frame, CNC side plates and carbon fairings.  Hard to explain the combination of high tech and craftmanship in a low-volume specialty like the DB7, but take a careful look at how the machined aluminum side plates interface with the frame, drivetrain, and fairing.  Marzocchi's 43mm Corse forks are up front, with a twin-reservoir monoshock damping Bimota's progressive-link rear.  Brembo four-piston calipers are radially mounted on Bimota's machined mounts with 320mm floating rotors.  Rearsets and levers are each another showcase for the CNC-machined aluminum artistry.

 

In impeccable shape, this DB7 still has its factory titanium muffler.  The eBay-based dealer has a wide selection of exotic cars available, and has great pictures but only a few words about the DB7, safe to assume anyone shopping for a DB7 will have at least some knowledge of the brand -

  • Only 1600 miles

Bimota was on the mend in the mid-oughties and relied on Ducati for powerplants, which continues today.  The DB7 reviewed as a rewarding machine, slim and lightweight, and worth setting up correctly.  Production numbers are hard to verify but appear to be just 100 or so for the 2007-10 run, it was succeeded by the 1198cc DB8 which is still available.  A sparkling display of technical and manufacturing capability, the DB7 shown here seems a gem.  The ask is about what DB7's were fetching a few years ago, poised for appreciation, which should please the three dozen watchers on the buy-it-now...

  • I just wish the seller could make it clear their company name

  • I still prefer the SB2….so sexy https://i.ytimg.com/vi/xgRtfhynE18/maxresdefault.jpg

  • Not crazy about the angular look. The DB2 and DB4 are better looking bikes in my opinion and for such light bikes I’ll take the air cooled 2 valve motor any day.
