Small volume exemption from Euro 4 and 5.....ltd run of 30 No Bimota Tesi 3D's no reason why they cant make more or make Bimotas with Ducati engines or any other brand....all depends on how Kawasaki want to play it I suppose

As a DB7 owner I am happy, at least I hope the company will also produce spare parts and besides, my DB7 will acquire more value over time.
But I love the brand, I'm not happy,because I fear that it will become a branch of Kawasaki

I'm an optimistic realist....so I share your first thoughts...as certainly spares like footpegs gear levers etc are impossible to find for the 2005 era onwards.....although tbh .Bimota havent made anything since 2005....all parts are outsourced to other companies in Italy.....And...it has to be better than "Bimota...Made in China"...as all the other 3 Big Jap brands...Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha now make bikes in China....unlike Kawasaki Heavy Industries which is actually a bigger company than the other 3

I guess it will depend on what Kwak want to do, if there's stock in the company (frames swingarms etc) then they might as well build them up, it will increase brand awareness, before starting something new.

Bimota had the frames built by "Verlicchi" which unfortunately failed. At home, he did nothing.

We will see with this new management what will come out

I keep you updated
