Here’s another Bimota for sale: an unknown year Bimota YB10 Dieci in New Orleans (thanks for the tip Doug!)
Produced between 1991 to 1994, the YB10 uses a Yamaha FZR1000 engine house in Bimota’s own beam frame design (same frame as the YB6 and championship winning YB4). Max output is 145 hp at 10,000 rpm and max torque is 11 kg at 8500 rpm, pushing a claimed dry weight of 188 kgs.
I am more of a fan of the DB series, but the YB series (especially ever since the YB4 won the F1 championship in 1987) has a strong following. The seller didn’t offer much details, but judging from the photos, this bike is part of a larger collection. The bike is a bit dusty and probably hasn’t been started in a few years, but at least it’s sitting inside in a clean and dry environment (as I would expect from anyone who would own a Bimota).
With only 224 units built ever, the asking price of $13,999 is not unreasonable, but I would knock off a few bucks with the bike being so dusty. 😉
