It’s hard for me not to feature a good-condition Bimota, but the Bimota YB8 is a lovely find especially considering I just showed off the 400cc Japan-only YB7 a couple of days ago. YB8 = the 8th Bimota with a Yamaha engine, in this case a 1000cc EXUP engine which yielded 148 horsepower. I find it very weird to see the “EXUP” logo on an Italian bike, but there is something to be said for Japanese reliability with Italian design (even if this does look an awful lot like several other late 80s/early 90s Japanese sport bike from the front.
