2009 Bimota DB7 Oronero unveiled

The 164bhp, 164kg Bimota Oronero. Snazzy, even if it does cost US$52,000!

While they don’t seem to have any new bikes to show at this year’s EICMA, Bimota have unveiled a new version of the DB7 – the DB7 Oronero (Black Gold), which is six kilos lighter than the standard bike. With 164bhp from its Ducati 1098 v-twin, the DB7 Oronero has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, which is probably a good thing.

Other new bits on this Bimota include petal-shaped brake discs at the front, fully digital multi-function instrumentation with data logger, and integrated GPS. There are also, of course, various titanium and carbonfibre bits on the bike – only to be expected on a bike that will be built in limited numbers next year, and that will come with a price tag of US$52,000. Rush to your nearest Bimota dealership to book yours now…
