It might be ugly but I bet it goes very fast, handles great and smooth to ride, most ugly bikes do, I wonder if it has any secret weapons 007.

They appear to have turboed the new Brough engine and given it a modern wrap.

Another bike that some rich toffs will buy and leave sitting in their garage since they are easily frightened by anything bigger than a Honda Cub!

I’m not a fan of the Broughston Martin but would take that over the Bimota, in the unlikely event that I am inconvenienced with excess Lotto winnings.

Well, like most red blooded petrol heads I’ve long been a fan of Astons. But that bike is not good. I can see how they’ve tried to incorporate Aston DNA, I can imagine the clay bodywork on a stand looking great. But when it’s all put together as a bike it doesn’t work.
Perhaps the bodywork was handled in England and the rest of the bike in France and the two never spoke! Unlikely I know, but kinda like hat it looks like.

At least the Bimota has managed to maintain a clear DNA lineage.

No rocket launcher be better for traffic jams, you wouldn't put a pillion on that would you, if it was powered by a British motor it would have standard oil slick lol.
