$36,000 and it's not had the carburetor update, so it sure as heck isn't a rider. Still, if I were a wealthy guy I'd buy it to look at it and hear it run in-place once in a while. I know nothing of this bike apart from the listing.
Bob is a Great guy. I purchased a DB4ie off of him years ago at a fair price. The injected model. Ended up installing the Ducati Performance ECU, Giannelli exhaust, air box lid and ported heads. Fueling is perfect per the dyno. That bike is incredibly light and comfortable compared to my 1100 Hypermotard. It was truly created for mountain roads.I wanted one of these for the wife back when they were new but Bob couldn't get one yet so it went to the back burner, not too much later he offered so heavily discounted due to the running issues that it scared me away. He also had a couple of db4's and mantas that he was willing to deal on.
Don’t forget Cannondale…..LÖLI have heard one of these run. It would/could have been one hell of a bike, had it been developed properly, with enough investment (which Bimota did not have the ability to do). Motorcycle history is littered with the corpses of bikes that would have been awesome, if only just ...
From the Morbidelli 850 V8, to the recent Motus (I got to testride that, and it was a hell of a bike), to the Tularis, to this, and many others.
amullo appreciate the honest post!Rather spend that cash on a nice db5 or maybe a Tesi I if I could swing it.
Had the opportunity to ride a v-due on the track about 15 years ago and it didn't impress.. the chassis was great, but engine/gearbox was nothing special and my 916SPS at the time had better brakes..
