No. You could get a pretty trick SB8K with the TL1000 motor for mid $20s. I had a Bimota Mantra with a 904 ducati motor that I purchased from a dealer for $10k w/ a sticker of $18,700. Some buyer put it on consignment with 14 miles on it.
I traded it straight across for a new BMW GS. I couldn't pass up that kind of moto barter. Very nice workmanship. It really is true when you hear about being able to sit in the garage and look at the detail of a bimota. Random little pieces of metal on most bikes are billet jewlery on the bimotas.
Anyway, 378 lbs with a torquey aircooled duc motor;-) It sold on Craigs List to a collector in Boston a couple of months ago. And now my old 1993 Ducati 907ie is on Craigs. Unbelievable.
Scuderia West is "Number One dealer in the Nation for one of Italys largest brands in motorcycling"
Largest brands huh. I understand there are a number of small Boutique Manufacturers in Italy, but I'd like to see the sales numbers on Bimota to see how they compare to the sales for numbers one through three.
They are quite nice, just not sure about calling them one of the biggest brands in Italy.
