Motorcycle companies like to return to their roots to draw inspiration. Kawasaki did it with the Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R models, BMW with the R nineT, and this year Yamaha did it with the XSR900. Well, Bimota is also looking to its past too, but unlike many other manufacturers, however, that past only goes so far as to produce a rolling chassis. With the Bimota BB3 kit, now customers can re-live Bimota’s early days.
Bimota will provide all the parts necessary to to complete a rolling chassis, at which point it’s up to you to source a BMW S1000RR engine and electronics and install it. Bimota says the BB3 comes in either racing trim or street trim.
At press time, neither pricing nor availability was announced.
