1991 Bimota YB8

Thought I'd share some pictures of my 1991 Bimota YB8 that just finished up a rolling restoration. I've owned this bike before and was fortunate enough to have a friend trade it back to me for my NOX.

The entire bike was gone through and a few repairs were made to the body with portions being repaired and repainted and the entire body getting a good sanding and new clear coat.

I trade bikes often, but this one will be staying a while. For information on the Bimota, this link has some pretty good information.

I always describe this as an early R1. It was about 100 lbs lighter than the FZR1000 it is based on from a mechanical perspective.

How awesome! I remember see pictures of this bike in Sport Rider in the early ‘90s and we just thought I’d was so exotic and cool. The graphics alone were special. Your a lucky man.

I will be keeping this for a while.

Just ran LCR at 2Xplus10(ish) and it was effortless. Can't wait to hit the Hill Country. I haven't had it above 8K rpm yet and it pulls like a freight train. In any gear, torque for days.
