Bimota Tesi 2D

One of the most exclusive bike to come to States, has anyone seen any personally? The exotic dealer here got my attention through their ads.

Only 30 will be made per year, $47800 in Italy.

Oh, God, please don't tell me you like the look of that.......that..........that THING??!

That rates highly as one of the ugliest piece of machinery I've ever seen since...

"Disgraceful" also springs to mind.

I think it's disgraceful that a company allowed resources to be spent on designing and manufacturing it.

HEHE, guilty, looks better than most Buells, which reminds me of plastic Hasbro/Mattel toys.

It's meant to be a stipped down hunk of aluminium and not the first for Bimota with an unique front suspension.

Suspension aside, the rest of its design is horrific, right down to that Mack-truck-looking pipe underneath it. WTF is with that??!!

Hi All-

If someone gave me one I wouldn't complain. I remember years ago there was this bizarre guy named Rick Roscetti (something like that) who was the sole American importer of those bikes. Are they still available in this country?
