1994 Bimota DB2 tricolor with 4,051 miles for sale in Madison, Wisconsin.
We’ve had several DB2s listed before, but none of them are of the tricolore variant which, whether you like it or not, is rather rare and hence desirable.
Rare sportbike, one of 34 tricolores in US. Ducati 904cc aircooled engine with Dynojet kit and opened airbox. 4,051 miles. Serviced by Ducati specialist. Dripping with carbon: cambelt covers, sprocket cover, vented clutch cover; also has: Termignoni carbon pipes, CRG’s Hindsight billet bar-end mirrors, billet oil filler cap & Euro switch, little flush Lockhart turn signals (fake carbon), evoluzione cyclesports’ regulator (with charger); Yoyodyne clutch slave; 916 SPS brake & clutch levers (and remotes), ss brake & clutch lines, Euro fairing w/parking light. Have similar quarter fairing, yet unpainted.
There’s no information that I can find to verify claims that there are only 34 of these in the US, but truth be told that I have only seen very few tricolors over the years. There are several tasteful / de rigueur mods (such as the Termis…hmm!) to the bike, so the asking price of $12000 is not outrageous, but definitely puts it at the higher end of the market – I guess the tricolore paint does demand a premium.
Update: The seller has sent the following information along to verify the 34 models stated. -dc
My source for the number of them is Bob Smith, then then-importer, who brought over 34 in a container. He had them painted in the pattern of the purple European
model, but in red-white-green. They were never sold in Europe (as confirmed by European members of the Bimota list), though there is a photo of one in the Bimota book.
