This year, at EICMA 2012, Bimota doubled the size of its stand and presented no less than 19 models. The joke going around Milan: If the miniature work force at Bimota were able to manufacture 10 of each model, they’d have their hands full for the whole year! Dig deeply, and you’ll see that many of the bikes are actually 2011 products, with a list that includes the Ducati sohc 1100cc air-cooled V-Twin-powered DB5 and DB6, as well as last year’s DB10 B-Motard and this year’s derivative DBX 1100. There is also an HB4, a racing model developed to compete in the Honda CBR600-powered Moto 2 FIM championship. It did not sell at all, well, despite the efforts of Bimota promoter and former GP and SBK racer Ruben Xaus.
