Yup.....as per the title....can't say too much at the moment....380 pages long, archive photos, history...beginning to end...if that is what it is....

English language version?

Who would be interested? And No...I am not the Author....my knowledge is just the last 7 years...and I've never read a full book in my life....

Please...no more questions, pm's, emails, messenger requests, etc etc, as they will be ignored...that's all the details you're getting from me for now.... Wink

Pardon my, ummm ... slowness ... but when you say "Bimota Bible" do you mean the rather fine "Bimota 25 Years of Excellence" by Giorgio Sarti or do you mean some other tome? Thanks mucho.

The price for the book has just been released is 48 Euros, and this Poll is to try and convince the Publishers , Nada, to release an English Version, yes the same publishers of the Original Bible...the Book has been written by a co-writer of the Original Bible, and, One esteemed...Giuseppe Morri, one of the Orginal FOunders of Bimota....sadly Tamburini has passed, and the other founder Bianchi, survives, but left the company when Motorcycle production began.

Here are the words about the book from Giuseppe himself....As translated by Google:-

First of all I apologize for the "bad" English, "I'm serving Google, my phrase book is very small.
I'm glad that you're very interested in my book "The Bimota" was gold.
I am well aware that fans who are interested are mostly living abroad, Japan and Germany in particular.
I do not have a thorough understanding of the Bimota Club, even the Italian one that does not follow, despite having established in 1989.
I told my memories to the journalist who signs the Saverio Livolsi.
Since its foundation and until my final exit of the company; First as CEO in April 1993 (and it is this time that the title refers), then as an adviser in 1994, ultimately as partner in 1995.
I wrote the book thinking that if Bimota survived the disasters combined after 1993 it is due only to the great heritage of credibility that the company has won in the first 20 years of activity
The period subsequent to the last painful events, which are told by Livolsi interjected with the engineer Marconi and Andrea Acquaviva (last with technical qualification and mindset Bimota ... he's my nephew), both have come out ... even by the company during the 2016.
Realistically it is the part of the most significant history, one during which, thanks to the technical innovations and sports results (more than 600 riders have competed with over 1500 bimota winning podiums, plus other prestigious results).
photo sources are restricted to my archives, those of bimota friends and journalists.
I have no contact with Felli, but the "affair" with 500 V2 are known for testimony Livolsi (was one of three) and the testimonies of Marconi. With me it would never have happened!
The setting is that the history is narrated year by year and at the end of real cycles shows motorcycles cards in order of creation.
We set out to collect documentation for cards of all motorcycles produced by Bimota
The Italian price of the book has already been set by the publisher Nada: 48 (forty eight).
To my knowledge, are in place bids for the Bimota Club, it would be interesting if they were the club to make requests, perhaps Giorgio Nada would have more motivation to complete a version in English.
I do not have precise information about the run.
I think there has been or is in preparation for a show for the world's publishers and Nada (along with Livolsi) prepared a presentation of the book to propose partnerships with foreign publishers.

Perhaps it is superfluous to point out that Livolsi has worked with Sarti, writing the lyrics for the book 25 years of bimota.

For 48 euros I'd get one for sure. That would be a bargain compared to the prices being asked for the original book.
