One of the better model names in Bimota history, the DB6 Delirio is a naked standard that was part of Bimota’s rebirth once Roberto Comini acquired the firm in 2003. It was the “cheapest” Bimota in the lineup, though it’s hard to call any bike cheap when the MSRP was over $30,000.
For that money, you got Ducati’s dual-spark air-cooled V-Twin, good for 90 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque, as well as styling unlike any other Bimota. For more information, check out this review from Visor Down.
This example (VIN: ZESD699257R000042) shows 3,121 miles on the odometer and it’s being offered by the second owner. The seller claims that this is the exact machine that was at Bimota’s display at the “2007 Los Angeles Motorcycle Show (by which I assume he means the Long Beach show) and that it’s one of two black-framed DB6s in the US. I’d argue that the red frames are more interesting and would do a better job of breaking up what looks to be a bit of a black blob in this case, but hey, it’s not my bike. The original owner was none other than Bob from Bimota Spirit, one of the country’s premier Bimota experts. This was Bob’s personal bike for its first thousand miles before the seller got his hands on it – and that might be why it has several upgrades such as a switch to DB6-R controls, custom alcantara suede seat, CRG mirrors, Zard exhaust, Rizoma grips, and more.
