OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
110 bhp, 500 cc water-cooled two-stroke V-twin engine.
One of the most fascinating design exercises from the most interesting motorcycle company in the world, which created the hub-steering Tesi, the 500 V-Due is certainly unique. Italian manufacturer Bimota constructed the bike with its usual watch-making attention to detail, then designed and built the engine from scratch. It has a fuel-injected, two-stroke V-twin, designed by Sergio Robbiano, and it was launched at the Cologne Motor Show in 1996.
V-Dues hardly ever come to market, which makes this a rare opportunity. This 1998 example is offered in as-new condition, finished in red, white and black livery. Understood to have minimal delivery mileage since new, it is a definitive future collector’s motorcycle that is presented in superlative condition with excellent paintwork.
