Description

• Bimota's first major production motorbike
• Kawasaki Z1000 engine
• 3 owners as new, first registration plate
The KB1 was launched with a slogan that encapsulated the entire philosophy of the Rimini-based company and its founders, Giuseppe Morri and Massimo Tamburini: "Bimota, the fussy business of perfecting what seems perfect".
Developed on a tubular chrome-molybdenum chassis and equipped with the engines of the legendary Kawasaki Z 900 and Z 1000, the KB1 has long been Bimota's most successful sales model. Sold as a kit or as a complete bike, the KB1 was an important evolutionary step from the company's first model, the HB1, which was produced in only 10 units.
This example was registered on 2 March 1979 in the province of Rovigo. For many years it has been part of the collection of a passionate motorcyclist: carefully maintained, it is offered here for the first time at auction.
