2006 Bimota DB5 R For Sale in North Carolina

Update 6.2.2013: SOLD!

Update 3.24.2013: This stunning DB5 R is being relisted for consideration after previously being listed last March. Owner has included a more thorough description and is selling directly. Good luck with the sale Chris!

Chris emailed to alert us that his gorgeous DB5 R is now available from his private collection. Only the R models got the tri-color paint scheme and under that paint scheme is a carbon fiber fairing also exclusive the R. The lightweight OZ wheels are also part of that package.

We’ve posted a handful of DB5 R’s previously and the $19,995 asking price is in line with what we’ve seen historically. And in keeping with the usual Bimota theme on RSBFS, this bike sports a mere 2900 miles.

The seller’s quote:

2006 Bimota DB5-R

Like new original condition in pearl white, red and green Tri-color. Bone stock with no modifications or enhancements. Bimota registry number 77

All original paint in spotless condition without a mark or scratch anywhere. Laser cut 3M protective film covers most of the bike and can be easy removed if desired. Brand new Metzeler Sportec M5 Tires. Always garaged and covered on a battery tender and exercised every 6 weeks.

I have all the books, documentation, certificate of origin and extra un-used key as well as the original silk Bimota factory cover.

I am a long term multiple Bimota owner and collector. This is a very rare piece and will not be easy to find in this condition. I have taken very good care of this bike for about 3 years

We have many more detailed photos that we will be happy to send or provide any specific photos that you may be looking for.

Miles: 2,663

Cliff notes on the DB5 R:
– utilizes the 1000DS V-Twin from Ducati, which is good for about 90hp. Not a lot but only weights 370lbs!
– designed by Roberto Commini who also penned the V Due.
– adjustable Ohlins suspension.
– nearly $40k new.

Good luck with the sale Chris!



  • I may be interested but being in California is going to make it difficult. Can you send me the VIN and a photo of the emissions label on the frame?

  • Please contact me via website above.

  • Now for the corrections:

    It was designed by Sergio Robbiano, not the owner of Bimota Sig. Comini and the DB5 also won Sergio the MDA’s (Motorcycle Design Association) Design Award and other prestigious titles.

    Most of he Ducati Dual Spark engines are 1100cc and not 1000cc.

    And you you have not left a contact email for potential Buyers.

    • Thanks for the corrections George. I was trying my best to fill in while the guys were on vacay!

      I know the owner is monitoring this post so feel free to leave a comment to get in touch.


  • I am interested in this bike, please have Chris email me. Thank you. Oh, I did more research and his bike may very well have the Ducati Monster engine in it being 1000cc Dual Spark, without the magnesium covers of the later model Hypermotard engines that were supplied to Bimota without rhyme or reason by Ducati SpA. Thanks,

    George Villar

Your concept is outstanding; the thing is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted which i came across this inside my find something with this.
