    +1, cant think of another bike I would rather have, at any price, than that. Hell I would settle for a stock DB7.

    That's so beautiful that we forgive you the shitty cellphone pics. I could spend an hour just wandering around it looking at the parts. Wow.

    I rode a DB4 with the corse race kit on it. I only got to ride it a bit on the road so pushing it wasn't an option but the bike just felt capable. It wasn't incredibly powerful but seemed like it would be fun on flowing curves.

    Yes, in stock engine trim it feels like it could use a bit more punch. With some engine tuning lifting HP in the 90's it's a stunning bike. On track I'm faster through and out of the turns than contemporary Ducs 7xx/9xx. On the long straights the Ducks come creeping by again. That's fun! Straight line speed is just a matter of engine output but in the turns that's where the Bimota chassis shows its quality.

    Really I'd take the relatively affordable attainable sb6 and sb8's over all others.
    I love the looks more than all others and the " every day" usability, suzuki maintainability and reliability.
    Though a working vdue would be nice too.

    YUP !
    Get the extremely rare re-born 2002+ V-Due Evo II. Lots of new and improved parts, plus they went back to the exotic DFI and not the cheap fix carburetor version.

    Anyone remember this one when Gobert attempted to relaunch his racing career while simultaneously getting 'launched' off the Bimota?

    I have that set up now, a 1999 DB4 with the corse kit. Other than that kit, the motor is stock (as far as I know) and it was dynoed right at 80 horsepower. I have had 900/944 SS/SP's that were slightly to heavily modified and they didn't make much more power, so I will leave this one as is mechanically.

    It is extremely light, very comfortable, and the sound is purely intoxicating. At a recent Hill Coutry ride, a friend took it up the road outside Vanderpool, and did a fly by. I freaking love that sound from the pipe. The bike has so many little features that are just cool to look at in my opinion. The ride is very confidence inspiring. It is not "scary" fast like the YB8 I used have was at times, but it is quick enough to put a solid grin on your face as you are riding.

    Here's mine now.
