The small Italian manufacturer, Bimota, were founded first in 1973 by Valerio Bianchi, Giuseppe Morri and Massimo Tamburini. The company took inspiration for the name by using the first two letters of the each of the three founders surname and that’s how the name ‘Bimota’ was born.
Bimota spent a lot of time investing in the world of motorcycle racing creating engines and designs of various manufacturers including Yamaha, Ducati, Suzuki, Honda and Kawasaki.
The first bike to be born under the Bimota name is the HB1 in 1975
Tamburini focused his time on this masterpiece after he was involved in an accident riding a Honda 750 Four at the Misano circuit. Suffering broken ribs from the heavy weight of the machine, Tamburini set to creating a lighter version kit but only 10 units were made.
Other notable bikes produced by Bimota include the KB2 550, DB1 and the YB8 Furana 1000.
In 2019, it was announced that Kawasaki had purchased a 49.9% stake in the Italian firm and were working on the 2020 Bimota Tesi H2.
