This is a very low mileage Bimota DB3 Mantra with a very low serial number!
Bike: 1998 Bimota DB3 Mantra
Location: San Diego, California
The seller states this bike is completely original but doesn’t state much about any imperfections. This comes to us from the same seller of the Bimota BB1 we just posted here.
This bike was Bimota’s first foray into the naked bike sector and, personally, doesn’t look so hot. However, it is a true Bimota and features the power-plant from the Ducati 900SS. There are very few changes throughout the production run and all of the later pieces are interchangeable with the earlier bikes. The riding position, with low rear-sets and high clip-ons, is very similar to a standard riding position. However, the bike is pretty light at 185kg (Wet), with a low CG thanks to the exhaust and dummy fuel tank. The engine, suspension, braking, and general handling isn’t bad and this bike would be perfect for anyone who thinks a Duc’ Monster is too plain. The imitation wood dash and carbon fiber should get some attention if the headlight surround doesn’t. See the only Mantra we’ve ever posted on eBay .
