    Wow is right. Freaking sex.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    Exclamation new Bimota may be a 1200cc aprilia vtwin

    [QUOTE=Norrin Radd;2567764]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...[/QUOTE

    The DB7 is My favorite Bimoto, if it all works out, there's a slight chance I may get one in 2011.

    All the best,

    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

    please don't even think of doing that. With the updates, and the carbs sorted, the V-due was a good bike. Never perfect, but, well, that's it's character isn't it?

    ya i heard it kinda sucks but i have a bad 2 stroke habit i hope aprilia doesnt shut it down completely cause they are making strides in the pollution control and efficiency of them, imagine running a 4 stroke chain saw or a weed whacker!

    That DB7 is spectacular ! It got me thinking and looking around, but far too expensive for me. Found this link, DB7 seems to be a very fair price.
