Love the idea of an Italian twin but worried you'll see yourself coming and going a little too often? Consider the Bimota DB7, which uses Ducati's 1098 Testastretta Evoluzione engine. The price (if you need to ask...) will likely keep this one from getting into the hands of your riding buddies, so you'll be sure to have the only one at your local hangout; and you'll be the envy of everyone else in attendance.

The chassis is a mix of tubes and machined plates, as is the swingarm. Both are beautiful to behold, as is the bodywork - made up of structural carbon fiber, eliminating the need for separate subframes front and rear. The end result is an extremely lightweight bike at just 375 pounds. Rounding out the package are fully adjustable Marzocchi Corse forks, an advanced Extreme Tech rear shock, forged alloy wheels and radially mounted Brembo brakes. This truly is a beautiful bike, and the price will surely reflect the design and engineering that went into its development. Unfortunately... we're not worthy!

      uh, i'm guessing david brown had nothing to do with this DB...

      375 pounds isn't exactly "extremely lightweight" in current arena of superbikes. The Suzuki GSX-R1000 comes within 4 pounds (379 lb) of the DB7. The Buell 1125R equals the DB7's weight without the use of a carbon fiber fairing.

      u probably wont beliv me, MV AGUSTA VELCRO PISTA weighs only 157Kilos. a 1000CC superbike capable of reaching 320km/h. but low weight in high price - Eu 74,000.00

        It's VELTRO (medieval italian word for a fast hunting dog). And it weighs 159kilos (350.5 lbs) dry.

      there isn't much i wouldn't do for this bike. i love Bimota's creations.

      Adam, Most Italian bikes are weighed fully wet and most Japanese bikes are weighed dry. If that holds in this situation, that's a whole lot more than 3 pounds.

      Man that bike would look so much more awesome if they made those headlights smaller and more discreet and the gave it a minimal showing exhaust like the KTM.
