Bimota working on DB7-based supernaked?


Could this be the 2009 Bimota DB8 Delirio...?!
Via: Olipeil

While Ducati are rumoured to be working on a 1098-based supernaked, Bimota might not be too far behind either! Going by the spy pic here, Bimota might be showing a DB7-based streetfighter at the upcoming EICMA show in Milan this year.

Since the DB7 uses the Ducati 1098 engine, the new Bimota streetfighter could easily pack 150-160bhp. Add top-spec chassis and suspension components to the mix, and you could have one hell of a supernaked there. Ducati Fighter vs Bimota DB8 Delirio vs KTM RC8 Venom? Now that should be a battle to watch out for…

...and in the meanwhile, here are some pics from a recent Bimota riders' brunch meet in Tokyo
