The Bimota DB5R utilizes an improved DB5 chassis and is high-performance in every manner. Thanks to numerous carbon body parts, the DB5R weighs considerably less than the DB5 Mille. It is the ultimate competitor on the track or on the open road. Powered by a Ducati 1000DS engine, the DB5R has even more power with use of the Zard titanium exhaust (which gives an extra 5 bhp).

Features of the new Bimota DB5R include:

  • full carbon fibre fairing
  • Brembo radial calipers
  • OZ wheels
  • Slipper-clutch
  • Ttaniumi silencers.
