I donít think there is a real ę†impeto†Ľ that have been made, they just showed it once as a future project but thatís pretty much it. (And itís reeeaaaally a shame...)

Beg to differ......Yup...there was a mock up that was shown at Eicma as below



And motorcycle specs covered it also



And here is the same bike being crated up before being sent to its hidden secret location....place of which is sworn to secrecy





And....there is a video of the test mule that also ran and was being tested....although it did look somewhat different from the pictures above....it certainly was running and screaming

jeez... it's really magnificent.

Also, i've answered back to Valter, he then asked me for my phone number (??), dunno why because i've just asked simple things for my parts, just if they were available and their price.
Oh and i asked if there was any chance for them to sell an Impeto, i asked for you Gavin, maybe that's why he asked for my number ?

A phone number can validate somebody better than an e-mail address

Arsenic"........two days ago, Valter did call me.

I offered to take whatever Impeto they had....with or without compressor

He informed me that production will commence this year....Sept or so 2018,
....but in the meantime there is a DB 7 and. DB9 Italia that could be purchased

Bimota back?............let us see in September or so.

Who knows...but the email was Valter @ Bimota and the cell was Switzerland

Regards
Gavin
