Hand-Built Italian Style: 1983 Bimota SB4 for Sale

1983 Bimota SB4 R Side

In an era of mass-produced sportbikes, it’s easy to miss the details that made bikes like the Bimota SB4 so special. Virtually every modern manufacturer makes concessions to mass-production, and machines that, at first glance, look gorgeous can get a bit ugly in the details. MV Agusta’s F3 675 is a beautiful sleek, wasp of a motorcycle, but the stock clip-ons are obviously a cost-saving measure… But these early Bimotas, although far from perfect in terms of performance as-delivered, feature an attention to detail that is virtually extinct.

Powered by the durable and tunable 1075 air-cooled Suzuki GSX four-cylinder and five-speed transmission, the SB4 continued Bimota’s tradition of fitting reliable Japanese engines into state-of-the-art frames. That frame was made from chrome-moly tubing with machined aluminum side-plates and helped the bike achieve a svelte dry weight of about 405 lbs. The SB4 rolled on 16″ modular wheels fitted with radial tires, another pair of exotic features on a bike from an era of bias-ply tires.

  • Nice bike! The instruments look like they’re from a later GSX-R and would originally have been from a GS1100E.

  • One word: Beefy!
