Bimota DB6R Italian Motorcycle Unveiled

Arthur Coldwells

Bimota’s newly released DB6R is being hailed as the “more aggressive version of the successful naked Delirio” by the Italian motorcycle company. The DB6R is likely to be even more agile as it’s considerably lighter than its sibling and is propelled by the powerful new 1100 Ducati engine that now features a ‘slipper’ dry clutch. The chassis boasts a plethora of exotic components with an Extreme Tech steering damper to help reduce any front-end nervousness, and liberal use of durable yet lightweight carbon fiber including radiator air scoops, fairing sides, belt-covers, clutch cover, front mudguard, and side covers. The forged alloy wheels also play their part by reducing unsprung weight by an incredible 12 pounds. The full Brembo braking system is composed of two radial calipers up front and a new radial pump at the handlebar. The rear brake now features a floating disk, and these features will combine to give the bike a powerful race-performance braking system. With its claimed dry weight of only 374.8 pounds, the ultralight DB6R weighs 15.5 pounds less than its Delirio sibling, presumably turning this already great performing exotic into a spectacular one.
