Re: The Cafe/2Stroke/Single/Twin/Brit/Euro/Cool Bike Pic Thread

With all the excitement surrounding the Bimota HB4, their new Moto2 entry, it may be interesting for some here to look back at the first HB (Honda-Engined Bimota), the HB1. The HB1 was in fact, the first ever Bimota.




The Beginning
In September 1972, Massimo Tamburini crashed his Honda 750 Four at the Misano racetrack. The accident left him with three broken ribs. If the accident hadn't occurred, Bimota may never have come into existence. While Massimo was recuperating, he constructed a tubular steel frame that could withstand the horsepower being produced by the big Japanese manufacturer's engines. The frame Massimo constructed lowered the center of gravity and reduced the weight of the original Honda. With the creation of the HB1, the Bimota was born. Only ten of these bikes were ever produced.




The Bimota Name

The Bimota name was derived from its founder's initials; Bianchi, Morri and Tamburini. However, it was the enthusiasm and engineering excellence of Massimo Tamburini that carried the Company to success. In the 1970s, Bimota produced racing frames that caught the attention of serious bike racers. Frames such as the YB1, YB2, YB3 and HDB1, HDB2 and SB1, were of superior quality and the perception of what a racing bike should be was changed forever.











In the early 1970s this must have been a revelation!

I mean, that's the main reason I don't like fairings, the headlight(s) don't turn with you into a corner, at night that would freak me out!
