Update 12.28.2016: Now listed on eBay as well. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc
After dabbling with Japanese powertrains, Bimota formed a long-standing relationship with Ducati, and used the 904cc desmodue in several designs. The DB4 used an extraordinary alloy trellis frame to help keep the kg’s off, updated the cams to add top end, and this DB4 has a carburetor / exhaust power kit.
The oval-section alloy frame weighs just 5 kg., and has 43mm Paoli forks in front, with alloy swingarm and Ohlins monoshock out back. Brembo supplies the brakes, 320mm fronts with 230mm rear. The modern-looking bodywork provides an easy seat height and was supplied with or without lowers, this owner showing off the carbon clutch cover, which complements the carbon front and rear mudguards.
This DB4 has been treated to a comprehensive performance upgrade including Moto Course exhaust, and Keihin carburetors, accomodated by an updated fuel tank. From the Las Cruces, NM Craigslist posting –
It has the Moto-Point Performance Kit on it that consists of a handmade Corse Ti exhaust, Kei-Hin FCR Flat Slide Carbs, Air Filters, New Fuel Tank, Oil Cooler Lines, All Stainless Brake & Clutch Lines, and a few other little bits. All stock parts have been retained as you can see in the photos and come with the bike. I also installed a Ducati Corse Carbon open clutch cover and sprocket cover. It runs well and is a blast to ride, also sounds amazing!
This original-owner machine has only 6,500 and change miles, and the tri-colore paint looks great. Fairing lowers and take-off parts are included.
The DB4 reviewed as a sharp-handling lightweight, needing just a few more ponies, and this owner has taken steps to provide them. Very rare with only a few hundred total production, and just a handful in the U.S. The owner asks $13,000 and can be reached via his Craigslist ad or on eBay.
