Naked DB7? No..you get a DB8 - January 20, 2010, 08:26 AM

When everyone was expecting a naked DB7, Bimota rolls out the DB8. No worries though, the naked DB7 should be here come summertime...

Bimota has unveiled a new entry-level sportbike, the DB8.

The dual-seat 2010 Bimota DB8 is less expensive and lower specced than the DB7 though it does have a more powerful engine.


The DB8 is powered by a Ducati 1198 testastretta evoluzione V4 90-degree twin, compared to the DB7ís 1098 Ducati engine.

Bimota claims the DB8 has 168 hp at 9,750 rpm and 97 ft-lb. of torque, compared to the DB7ís 160 hp and 90.7 ft-lb.

The 1198 engine was chosen to provide additional power for carrying a passenger in mind.
Beyond the engine, the DB8 uses less expensive parts than the DB7.

While the DB7 has a carbon bodywork and subframe, the DB8 has plastic bodywork and an aluminum subframe.

Instead of the DB7ís titanium exhaust system, the DB8 uses a steel exhaust.


The DB8 uses a lower-specced Marzocchi fork and Extreme Tech monoshock, both fully adjustable. T
he DB8 comes with Dunlop Sportmax GP Racer tires instead of the DB7ís Continental Race Attack tires.

The brakes however are an identical Brembo setup as the DB7.
The 2010 Bimota DB8 is ticketed at 20,300 pounds (US$33,127), compare to the DB7 which retails for 23,000 pounds (US$37,533).

Finally!
I have over $30k to spend on a new supersport, but just couldn't part
with $37k... $33k, however, is much more affordable. haha!

Not trying to piss on this bike, but I feel that it is a slight waste of resources. I feel like if you have $33... you probable have, or can get $37. Just my opinion. I see it in my line of work when it comes to high-end cars. It gets to a price point where a few thousand doesn't really matter to the demograph of buyers.
$675/mnth or $750... I don't think it really matters.

Beautiful bikes and I envy those who are fortunate to own them but I can't see spending that kind of money on a bike built to really push the limits. I can see spending $30K on a cruiser simply because it is about the looks but to spend it on a bike that was meant to be raced seems too risky!
