ZERO – as in not turned a wheel, nada, zilch, Z-E-E-R-O, miles 1999 Bimota DB4 with performance kit for sale in Michigan!
*update: as Joel and fellow RSBFS contributor Mike pointed out, the bike has 23 miles on the odometer, so strictly speaking it’s not a zero mile bike. Aside from the factory performance kit it has also an aftermarket clutch slave and a tinted windscreen.
While both these points do not detract the bike from what is it – a desirable and collectible, almost new Bimota DB4 – it is nevertheless not truly zero miles and not 100% original.*
From the same collector that brought you the zero miles Bimota DB1, Bimota Laser TT KB2, and a 1977 Ducati 900SS (on ebay now!) here’s another yet another zero miles Bimota from his amazing collection:
Up for auction is a 1999 Bimota DB4. This is a Brand New Zero Mile motorcycle that I am selling for my Dad who is selling his collection.
The condition of the bike is fantastic and is like new. It has been upgraded with the performance kit which is a Corse Exhaust and Kehin CR special Carburetors installed (the stock parts have been saved and will come with the bike). It does come with the original tool kit and literature. It also has a free and clear title in the sellers name.
Please take a look at the large pictures to get a better idea of condition and email me if you have any questions.

Really, what’s there to say about ANY zero miles Bimota? It’s very desirable and collectible for sure, but I’d be too afraid to ride it. I like to ride my bikes and I guess I’m not a serious enough collector to have separate bikes for riding and for static display. $16,900 for a DB4 is a lot of money for sure, but how do you put a value on the fact that it’s zero miles?! Plus, if you are into that sort of thing, this is a low serial number bike (003) so may be worth just THAT much more…
This guy is a serious collector (just check out some of the other bikes in the background – Ducati NCR New Blue, Desmosedici, Ducati TT F1…) and I would love to see what else he will be listing for sale. My only question would be – if my dad has such an amazing collection, why would I sell it?!
If you like having a brand new 1999 Bimota DB4 for display in your collection (and who doesn’t?), .
