Tassie V2

Great choice.....exactly the same set up on my DB9

Night and day......really, another good option is Matris front and rear

BTW...the Ohlins ttx is exactly the same figment as the 2012 CBR 1000RR

Gavin

The exhaust was something special that I picked up . Full titanium #7 of 20 made by Graziano Dominica . Dyno tuned and it makes some impressive power. There is nothing between it and my mates '16 R1.

Does anyone know how many DB8 were made ?

Hello"......

.just to clarify the Ohlins shock from the fire blade range is the TTX which ends with a 466........this is the only one I can vouch for.

Mine came from Bimota via Omnia Racing and that what what was on the box!

Tassie V2..re the exhaust, ......something I picked up!

Those units came out of Bimota at just under 4000 euros.......they are very rare and sound lovely

Regards
Gavin

Hopefully "PaulDB2" will assist here....he has a new copy of the "L'era d'oro Bimota"...the golden era of Bimota by Guiseppi Morri...its in Italian only...but does contain the latest and most up to date numbers of each model made including DB8 up to DB11 and DBX.....

Hopefully my translation is accurate, the numbers are at least.
Bimota made three versions:
The 'base' (standard) model 2010-2013, 33 made.
The 'Oro Nero' model, in gold and black with carbon bodywork 2013-2015, 10 made.
Finally the SP, built from 2011 to 2015, 70 made.

How many hp on the dyno ?

Also, can you make a video with the sound of your exhaust please ?
And why did you chose that exhaust over the Motocorse one ?

You shouldn't be.....that's a relatively "common" bike by Bimota standards...and besides...whether its 7, 70 or 7,000 made....the parts availability is just the same........ Laughing

183hp at the wheel ???

Thatís ~205hp... 35 more than the DB8... with only an exhaust/racing air filter upgrade ??
Are you sure it wasnít the 183hp at the crank ? That would be 13hp more than stock wich is more realistic to me...
