Those who have been visiting our site for a while now would know that I am the resident Bimota freak, so whenever there’s one for sale, the guys would usually send them my way (thanks Dan!).
For your Monday viewing pleasure, here’s a 2008 Bimota DB6R with only 1100 demo miles on it:
2008 Bimota DB 6 R Demo. 1100 Miles. U.S. Specification with full warranty 24/ Unlimited Mileage. Personal Demo of the former Distributor for Bimota in North America. Priced for quick sale. Untitled and delivered on Certificate of Origin.
Includes the Zard high performance slip-ons as illustrated below.
Compared to the “standard” DB6 listed for sale in Vegas that I posted earlier, the DB6R is more potent with the Ducati 1100DS engine with a dry slipper clutch plus other upgrades such as lighter forged wheels, Brembo radial brake and clutch masters, and lots of carbon bits. All this adds up to a weight savings of 15.5 lbs over the DB6! Now that’s what I call a diet! For $5000 more (don’t forget the included Zard exhaust), I think this DB6R is a better deal.
Check out what MCN tester Mike Neeves have to say about the DB6R:
Of course, Japanese Bimota importer Motocorse also offers their own version of the DB6 – the DB6C (I can only guess that ‘C’ stands for Corse) with different (and in my opinion sexier) paint jobs and a tasty splash of Motocorse parts. Check out the video below of a DB6C and MV Agusta Brutale having some fun at the track:
If that video doesn’t get your blood pumping about the Delirio, you need to check if you still have a pulse!
