Italiano Classico: 1994 Bimota DB2

DB2_2

RSBFS just missed this auction the first time around, but fortunately for all of us this beautiful and rare Bimota DB2 is back. The eBay longevity might have something to do with the asking price (starting bid of $14k USD), but it is hard to argue with a bike that shows as well as this one. If you are in the mood for a sporty twin with lots of torque and plenty of good looks, this is a good place to start. Located in Pennsylvania (well that explains the heated grips), this bike is looking for a new home.

1994 Bimota DB2 For Sale on eBay

$T2eC16R,!)EE9s2ugNrZBQ3zz9Bti!~~60_3

from the seller:

1994 Bimota DB2. 12,052 miles. Bought from PCS Daytona in 06/2008. Bike is exactly as the day I bought it, never even ridden it as it’s been in indoor, covered storage since.
Carbon fiber slip on exhaust, brembo radial master cylinders and billet reservoirs, kevlar brake and clutch lines, brembo front calipers, carbon belt covers, carbon look mirrors and vented clutch cover.
Will need a battery and a full service. Hasn’t been started/run since 11/2010 due to storage. No mechanical issues when stored.

As with many Bimota’s, the fiberglass is not the strongest of options as it is thin to save weight. This bike does have the typical fiberglass spidering that is commonly seen. I have shown it the best I could in the photos. Please feel free to ask for specific photos of anythng I have missed that you would like to see. Come on down and see the bike if you would like, arrangements can be made for viewing.

1995 Bimota DB2 Tricolor – almost mint with 2145 miles!!

Here’s a VERY clean (almost mint!) 1995 Bimota DB2 tricolore with only 2415 miles!!

Update 12.6.2011 – last listed September of last year, this DB2 is back on eBay and hasn’t taken on any new miles. Links updated. -dc

What can I say – it’s a Bimota, it’s got an eye-talian tricolore paint job, and it’s got a 2V air-cooled Ducati inside.  I’m in love!!

target=”_blank”>

If you’ve been waiting for the right db2 this is it. This tri-color db2 has been in my collection since July 1995. I am the second owner but purchased it three months after the original owner bought it new from Pro Italia. Carbon-fiber mufflers and steel braded brake and clutch lines were added and I have the original mufflers that go with the bike. Owner’s manual and all documentation included. Ducati 904 2-valve runs strong and sounds great. Always garaged, never down, adult owned. I love this bike but it’s time to thin out my collection.

Just like most Bimotas, this VERY VERY clean (just check out the detailed photos – you can eat your Millefoglie off that rear sprocket!) sample is obviously very well taken care of.  And with just 2415 miles on the clock, this is practically a new bike!

target=”_blank”>

We have previously listed several DB2s for sale around here, but this is only the second tricolore that I have seen for sale – it’s that rare (there are only 34 these tricolores in the WORLD since they were only sold in the US).

target=”_blank”>

The bidding price is now at $8500, but I won’t be surprised if this one fetches over $10,000.  If I were in the market for an all-time classic Bimota, I’d be all over this one.  You simply can’t go wrong!  target=”_blank”>Here’s the listing on ebay.

It’s Actually Been Ridden! 1997 Bimota DB2 Final Edition

It’s Actually Been Ridden!  1997 Bimota DB2 Final Edition

Stop the RSBFS presses!  We have a Bimota that has been ridden more than 100 miles.  I’m exaggerating of course but not by much.  People love their Bimota art pieces and most keep them locked away in the garage.  This DB2 has enough mileage on it where you won’t be afraid to scratch it but not enough that you feel like it’s seen its’ best days.

That mileage would be just over 11,000.  Here is the skinny from the seller:

1997 Bimota DB2 Final Edition Silver/Black  VIN ZES1DB213VR000006  Final Edition DB2 Number 06.  11026 miles.  Recent major service including belts, valves, carbs.  Not a closet queen but very nice and a great color combination.  If you are looking at this ad you know what it is.  Ducati 900SS based hand made exotic.  Has original center stand.  Taillight lens is cracked (it is Ducati 851), I think I have a source for one. The evaporative canister has been removed.  Some glass stress cracks, not broken, the Bimota decal on the fairing has lost a little piece.  I can scan a copy of the recent service.  No miles since service.  Tires are ok.  Chain and sprockets were done ~9k miles.

The  Edizione Finale (Final Edition to you and me) comes in a more subdued paint than a lot of DB2’s I’ve seen.  It truly is a rare bike with just 100 produced.  Although I’ve never seen one, some were produced with a half fairing.

I’ve always thought of the DB2 as the average guys Bimota.  You know it is a Bimota: it has some carbon fiber, a unique frame and quality components but it doesn’t have quite the sparkle some other Bimota’s have.  I guess you could also look at it as a seriously breathed on Ducati 900SS .  Either way, it is a nice bike.

I know, it is a boring photo.  I included it because the seller was up front with the defects on the bike.  He included several shots of chips and the like.  Jump over to place a bid.

Thinning The Herd: 1993 Bimota DB2

Thinning The Herd:  1993 Bimota DB2

It’s hotter than hell, our government and lead themselves out of a paper bag and that money you had in stocks to buy your next toy:  well it just got a little smaller.  The one bright spot of the week for me was seeing this very tidy Bimota DB2 for sale.  I’ve seen a couple of bikes listed over the months from this seller and they all have been very low mile and extremely clean.  He is apparently still thinning his herd out so opportunity awaits.

This one keeps up with the tradition.  It is almost spotless and has only seen 5866 miles of pavement.  Have we ever had a high mile Bimota?  I’m starting to think they turn into pumpkins if you go over 10,000 miles.

Elegant and simple.  I don’t consider the DB2 as one of Bimota’s more envelope pushing designs but you can still tell it is a Bimota.  Fit and finish is flawless.

Italian frame and an Italian engine, what isn’t to like?  If the love bug has just struck you and you aren’t familiar with the DB2 here is a solid read.

And a little from the seller:

Up for auction is a 1993 Bimota DB2. I am selling this for my Dad who is selling his collection. This bike does come with a free and clear title.

The condition of the bike is great but is does have very light wear from 5,866 miles of use. There is a small tear on the bottom part of the seat (shown in pictures). The cylinder studs have been upgraded. It has a performance exhaust upgrade. The wheels have been painted gold for looks (stock color is white).

 

There is obviously some interest in the auction with the number of bids but where is that pesky reserve?  Hopefully it is somewhere around $10,000.  That seems to be the sweet spot that DB2’s have been selling in.  Make it yours here.

Italian Dream: 1994 Bimota Bimota db2

For Sale: 1994 Bimota Bimota db2

The offspring of two Italian Supermodels, the DB2 (Ducati – Bimota, 2nd model in the series) offered the power of the torquey Ducati 900SS, in a compact and beautiful handcrafted frame. Whereas the earlier DB1 was a stunning styling excercise, its 750cc mill and tiny size left something to be desired on the performance side. Enter the DB2, which gave up some of the syle of the DB1, but unleashed greater performance on the rare few who could afford such a machine.

Before the Ducati 916 made high, under-seat exhaust pipes fashionable, Bimota was already there. This bike sports aftermarket carbon canisters.

From the seller:
One of 35 tricolore Bimota db-2 in existence, all imported in 1994, and pictured on p.189 of Sarti’s Bimota 25 Years of Excellence. Powered by a 904cc air-cooled Ducati engine, weighs a mere 375 pounds. Some details can be seen at and and .

Dripping with carbon (salvaged from the prior db-2, which I dumped): cambelt covers, sprocket cover, vented clutch cover; also has: carbon pipes, CRG’s Hindsight billet bar-end mirrors, billet oil filler cap & Euro switch (both also scrounged from the old bike), little flush Lockhart turn signals (fake carbon), evoluzione cyclesports’ regulator (with charger); Yoyodyne clutch slave; 916 SPS brake & clutch levers (and remotes), ss brake & clutch lines, Euro fairing w/parking light. Most (if not all) original parts will be included.

Except for Dynojet kit & opened airbox, Termi carbon pipes, it is stock as a stone. (Except for a shortened sidestand (by previous owner) and tiny length of clear plastic tubing to cover the shift lever, to prevent scarring shoes (when I’m dumb enough to ride wearing shoes instead of boots). Lovely bike, goes where you look, stops on a dime and gives you 7 cents change, feel like a toy compared to my older Ducati Darmah.

This is the second one I’ve owned. I totalled the first, which I rode home over 350 miles without needing a chiropractor, and put 3,000 miles on it in less that 7 months, even collected a speeding ticket in a Wisconsin February. I liked it so much I bought this one after a longish search. I am the second owner, the first being the selling dealer who repainted it after tipping it over in a parking lot (hence the shortened sidestand, so it leans over a bit more when parked). I didn’t like the job, so I had it re-done, with some gold flecks in the green.

It comes with similar quarter (after-market, Italian, no print-through on the ‘glass) fairing, yet unpainted.

Why is it for sale? I am 70, and have aged out of bikes with this riding position (similar to a 748/916 Ducati’s). I’m keeping my elderly Ducati, which I can ride in greater comfort.

If you think you have seen this bike before, you are correct. RSBFS has chronicled a few DB2s in the past year, and this particular bike was listed on Craigslist last year. Back then, it had an asking price of $12k. Now the bike is available on eBay with the current bid in the $2,000 range with reserve not yet met. There is also a BIN on the bike for $11k, which is fair money for the machine, but no bargain.

Final Edition: 1997 Bimota DB2 EF on Ebay

Final Edition:  1997 Bimota DB2 EF on Ebay

It just doesn’t get much more Italian than this.  A tried and true Ducati engine in a hand built frame with quality components from front to back.  As the seller states, this is one of 100 DB2 EF’s built.  It is also one of just 75 with a full fairing.  As is usual with these bikes, the mileage is at a minimum:  1402 miles.  Basically the seller has completed the break in for you. 

Here is what the seller has to say about the bike:

“Limited Edition, Exclusive, Unique,” How many overused adjectives can be used to describe something that is truly available to very few. In the more then 30 years of it’s existence, Bemota has produced fewer then 12,000 finely honed racing and street motorcycles, roughly the number of motorcycles Honda Manufacturing would produce in 2 days. The Bemota DB2 EF is one of a production run of only 100 and the engraved pewter tank plaque notes this as the third built of that 100 unit production run.

“Edizione Finale” the final edition of the DB2 is powered by a 904 cc desmodromic valve Ducati engine, similar to the Ducati Monster 900cc engine but with carburetors. The intention being to produce a machine with the hart and sole of a pure race bike but with the manors of a civilized street motorcycle.

Suspension is uncompromised with Paioli 41 mm front forks, custom cast with the Bimota logo on the slider axel lug and single Ohlins rear shock. Brakes are twin disk floating Brembo in front and a single disc Brembo in the rear. The frame of small diameter tubes is reminiscent of a birdcage Masserati with billet triple clamps that are a work of art unto themselves. The signature of Massimo Tamburini, the godfather of the finest modern MV Agusta’s and Ducati’s is clear, as it should be for his role as one of the key founders of Bemota

The bidding is quite active already on this one with quite a few days left in the auction.  As of this writing the bike was at $9000.   As of late, a lot of the more expensive bikes have not been meeting reserves on Ebay.  Now I don’t know if it is the economy creeping in or sellers with unreasonable reserves.   Maybe this will be one of the bikes breaking the trend.  If your garage is needing a Bimota in it, then it is time to  .

1993 Bimota DB2 in San Diego – update with lower price!

Very clean looking red/white 1993 Bimota DB2 for sale in San Diego.

Update: 5.26.10 –

Update 2: Now with hi-res pictures from the seller

Bimota DB2 For Sale

This is an update post of a 1993 Bimota DB2 that we’ve posted earlier back in February – the asking price back then was $11,000, which I thought was a bit high and suggested that $8000 was a more realistic price. Guess what the new lower price is?  Yup, you’ve guessed it – $8000!

Here are some additional photos of this clean looking DB2:

The seller (still) didn’t give too many details, but the bike looks very clean with low miles (previous post listed 4,400 miles).  And at $8000, it’s bang on what I would consider a good deal.  They don’t do mortgage on babies, do they?

Oh, and here’s the link to the listing on Craigslist.
