I always looved that exhaust can...2 pipes feeding into a single can. Kawasaki did this in WSBK a few years ago and always thought it looked stunning. Great bike!!!

Can you put up some more pics?

Well... it IS one of only 2 Carbonio DB7s in the US. GORGEOUS! The other is in Wisconsin.

(BTW... The Diavolo Rosso is a one-off slightly-modded Oronero, and the only Oro in the US; and there are only 7 worldwide. Number 08/10 was completed last month. There will ONLY be 10, and there will be no follow-on model or 1198 version.)

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Words cannot describe how I feel about this thing. Lately I'd definitely prefer a Bimota to an MV Agusta based on exclusivity solely. Congrats on the bike, she's a beauty.

some people buy a corvette, others buy a bimota or a 1098R or a MV312 because they all appear to be about the same price, someday I will have that luxury, someday.

For they who asked....

Just dropped Boomer off for the first service @ DucShop.
A couple nits to fix and turn-off the service light.
(No web knowledge like on the Aprilia to provide this info.)

Nits: Idle is a little high and the front springs are too stiff for my 180 lbs.
Bonus stuff: Having the cam timing checked, flywheel lightened to 848 spec, and DP Ergal Pulleys installed under Shift-tech CF belt covers.

Riding the DB7 vs a 1098S:
Just under a 1K miles on the DB7 vs 5K on the Duc.

The DB7 has a narrower mid-section, less under seat heat, and less wrist weight than my Heli Trackstars equipped Duc.

Neither seat is a couch. The Duc is broader. Both have suitable seating for all day rides, it's just ones bum suffers in different ways.

After I dialed out all the front spring preload on the DB7, I was able to ride with a measure of confidence. The turn in is fantastic. I would keep finding myself turned-in too much or early compared to what I expected from riding the Duc. Moving around on the DB7 also seemed easier than the Duc, as my knees seemed to find proper purchase, and body positioning was quite 'natural'. Maybe it's just a function of less wrist weight.
With that said, I can't really tell shiznit from riding it in Florida; So the real comparo awaits....

The DB7 exhaust note is 'Booming' compared to my Stock Duc. Music.
The titanium exhaust-can does stay quite hot after shut-off, and can leave a perfectly round rivet burn on ones wrist. The Bimota lettering on the can does not readily transfer to skin. (At least not by single accident.)

The brakes on the DB7 have less initial bite, but similar power.
The DB7 should come with Rizoma resevoirs, not plastic.

The Duc feels a little flat mid-RPM after the Bimota. Not a big difference.
Yet to try the top end. (Of course, the RST1000 feels like a stone now.)

Dash: I prefer the Bimota needle-type Tach indicator. Period.

I am really enjoying the Bimota and can't wait to do days of Mtn twistees.


Picture ps - The freakin' leaves fall in the Spring in Florida !

Last fall my buddy bought a leftover '06 DB5 and I grabbed a leftover '07 DB6 Delirio. While they don't have the water pumper motor in your DB7 they sure do have the Bimota chassis making them an absolute joy up here in the mountains. And talk about exquisite fit and finish- stunning pieces! Yours is a real beauty!

DucShop has a DB6R in the showroom now. It is beautiful.

Not a bad issue to have.....



The Shift-Tech belt cover CF weave is a match for the Bimota clutch cover CF, and adds to the layered CF effect.

Now that the Ohlins 0.95 front springs are installed, it's ready for some mountain roads.

They look amazing in person, I happened to be at the shop in Vegas when they rolled this one out onto the floor for the first time. It was in a room with all of Italy's finest and not even the dealership guys could take their eyes off of it.

There was also a nice left over DB5R with a wide CF weave that was really sweet.

Maybe they will make a new one with the Ape V4 mill...

you have to get that black beauty out on the track, i took mine to willow springs ca. along with a 1098r and my duc track bike, a corse version of the 748. compared to the 1098r and keeping revs on db7 under 7000 heres what i found. powerwise, well nothing compares to the brute force of that 1098r so i have to be conservative coming on out of the corners but it would out pull anything once opened, corse bike, the pull was similar and handled a bit better braking is better so i could stay on it a little longer. db7, has a much smoother power delivery, and braking not so abrupt, the machine would lull you into total relaxation and confidence and handled like the rs125, the lines i would take on the ducs did not work the same on db7 because i could take a much tighter line on it, like coming out of a long sweeper, where im usually inches from dirt coming out the db7 was yards away and on full power much sooner. so i would call this db7 a point and shoot bike, where you want it to go it goes and with ease, the rsv4 factory feels similar, but still not in the same realm. so on streets of willow the db7 was a much better choice than 1098r. next test will be big willow .

and i need some company, track days anyone? another db7 runnin around would be cool maybe a new mexico or tx track. like the one the af1 boys support. you can see some of those pics in my photos

Agreed, that looks like good DB7 prices.
Bob at Bimota Spirit stocks common tip-over parts and appears to have a working connection with Bimota Italy for other parts.

After a minor mishap, by Boomer is back with a few new 'tip-over' parts and a ton of buffing. Of course I didn't drop my 10 year old Futura instead.

Always felt Boomer's face was the least flattering of the views, so I've been looking for a dark windscreen for over a year. Only available choices was Motocorse from Italy @ $495 + shipping -OR- Eagle Screens from Australia @ $130 + shipping. Eagle would do custom, and the Motocourse price is just silly.
So I ordered a 3mm, single hole, dark tint, standard height Eagle screen. My low beam is a 55 Watt HID, so it alone should be fine for safety and night riding.
Also, added the Speedy-Moto EVO Water Pump Cover, which is a stunning piece, and worth it since it's visible on the DB7.

You are not the only one who got a mishap in their Bimota, I bought a DB6 2007 demo from a Utah dealer for $13k out the door. With 500 miles and old Continental tires. Made a turn after getting the inspection and Bam!!! Rear went under me.
Bimota Spirit helped me with some parts. I need a windscreen for this bike. Anyone got an idea where to get something suitable?
