Bimota, the tiny but influential Italian manufacturer based in Rimini, has embraced the “naked” sportbike for ages. The Impeto, shown at EICMA, is derived from the ultra-sporty DB7 and is quite a contrast to the Tesi 3D Race Café that was also shown.
As of late, Bimota has exclusively used Ducati engines to power its creations. The Impeto uses the previous generation 1198, twin spark Testastretta engine that pumps out a claimed 162 horsepower at the crankshaft. With a claimed dry weight of just 390 pounds, the Impeto should provide impressive acceleration.
