    My new to me 99' DB4

    Low mileage, hyper clean, air cooled Duc powered DB4 with Corsa Ti full exhaust system I picked up for a deal on E-Bay:

    Looks like fun to me. When are you going to let Micah put it on the dyno?

    Mine pokes this much out, standard DB4ie (fuel injected)


    Carb version is easier to tune as I can't find any software to alter the mapping on the ecu (I have a spare) unless anyone knows different?
    The DB4 should give about the same and probably a bit more, stunning bikes to ride.

    Cool bike! I got to ride on with the Corse exhaust when I worked for a shop in Hawaii. Nice and light, not terribly powerful but felt like it had tons of handling potential. It was one of the shop's owner's bikes so I was pretty careful with it.

    Starting to work on my YB8. This thing needs a streetfighter look from here, so I am going to figure it out for a upper fairing that is in character and doesn't cover everything like the stock bodywork:

    I have to agree with you. Streetfighter. I like the sound of that. Bimota streetfighter. Grand wicked.

    Found a perfect 94' DB2 Tricolore, but the seller is just too proud of it for me. $12+K.....no, several have been listed at under or around 10 with fewer miles and additional eqpt and prices didn't generate sales at $10K.

    DB2's are really rare in the states.....maybe 25 imported total. 3 have made it to market in the last year. I paid MUCH less for the DB4 above, which is a superior bike, but aluminum trellis instead of the chrome moly trellis of the DB2, which does make it more pleasing to my eye.
