2009 Bimota DB5R

Super Sport – The DB5

Powered by the Ducati 1100 engine, often cited by journalists as one of the best street engines ever, the DB5 tackles every corner with renowned Bimota poise and confidence that only comes from race quality components and sound engineering. In a simplified line-up, the DB5 is now available in two versions, the twin seat DB5S and the ultra performance single seat DB5R.

The ultimate performance DB5R returns in a classic Tri Colore paint scheme. Long a favorite of the most seasoned sport riders, the DB5R adds a long list of exotic materials and components to deliver performance worthy of its ‘R’ designation. Red, white and green, the classic Italian livery colors, have been applied to ‘coarse weave’ all carbon fiber body, certainly the most beautifully executed use of this exotic material. Ohlins suspension front and rear, ultra light wheels, Brembo radial controls and a racing ‘slipper’ clutch complete this master piece that has been called one of the best ‘real’ world sport bikes.
