By • Jan 19th, 2010 • Category: Vehicles
Was shown here at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona. To do the honors Management Bimota, beaming for the new model  (there was also the DB8) showing in racing worldwide the glorious Italian motor. Alongside the release of the Bimota DB8, the company from Rimini has also taken the wraps off its Bimota HB4 Moto2 race bike.

HB4 is obviously the combination of the Honda 600 cc engine with 4 cylinders of the new regulation imposed by the league Moto2 and the chassis set-up technicians Bimota for the gem from the competition.
 
The chassis combines a top perimeter trellis lower plate glued to a second aircraft technology. The swingarm box is nothing short of impressive and includes the transfer of the exhaust system developed by Zard double outlet right side.
 
The suspension is Paioli 43 mm front and rear Ohlins TTX while the braking system employs discs Braking 300 mm front, the only alternative to the rest of the components that are all Brembo. Magnesium alloy wheels and, of course, Dunlop tires (125/80-17 ant. 195/65-17 and post.) Complete the picture of a vehicle from the total dry weight regulations contained in 135 kg.

Moto2 is supposed to be the perfect fit Bimota and its jaw-dropping chassis designs, where were the exercises of Italian sex appeal in the metal work? Now with some better lighting and some higher quality shots, we can see that the Bimota HB4 is a stunner after all.
 
Helping put the production-based Honda motor right where the team needs it, the chassis also features an adjustable steering head and engine mounts system.
 
The swingarm is impressively built, and features a linkage to the custom exhaust developed by Zard. Suspension is done by Paioli up front, and Öhlins in the back. 300mm Braking disc-brakes are stoppped by Brembo monoblocs to help slowdown the 297lbs motorcycle.
 
As only the 4th time a Honda motor has been put in a Bimota chassis, the HB4 marks a nearly 25 year drought of the Italian company sourcing its motors from winged-motor brand. Currently Bimota only offers Ducati based designs, which is a tradition that the company wants to breakaway from in the future.

The addition of the new Moto2 class, which is set to replace the 250cc 2-stroke GP class, has caused a number of interested parties to begin work on their entry into the mini-MotoGP. While we expect the Hondas, Suzukis, etc to be in the new series, some of these companies are outside the list of the usual suspects, such as the possible Triumph entry, and now news comes that Bimota may be working on a Moto2 contender. Bimota is focusing their interest specifically on the chassis development side of the 600cc prototypes, and supposedly the boutique firm is ready to produce key components for the inception of the new class.
 
A return to the World Championship would see Bimota come full circle in their focus as a company. In the early 1970’s, Bimota was focused solely on producing parts for Grand Prix bikes. Renowned for their work with frames, shock absorbers, and chassis development, Bimota worked in collaboration with most of the top motorcycle producers of their time, sourcing power plants from them. We can’t wait to see what they come up with now, its about time we saw Bimota on the premiere circuits again.
