(MENAFN- NewsBytes) Italian motorcycle maker Bimota has taken the wraps off the production-spec model of its KB4 motorbike at the EICMA 2021. To recall, the concept version was showcased in 2019. The two-wheeler has retro styling with a carbon fiber body, new-age electronics such as a color TFT display, and a Kawasaki -sourced 1,043cc engine that is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Here are more details.
Takeaways Why does this story matter?
Kawasaki owns a 49.9% stake in Bimota, which is why the KB4 gets several components as well as the engine from the Japanese auto giant. One could say the bike is half Italian and half Japanese. It has been in development for two years and pays homage to the Bimota motorcycles of the late 1970s and 1980s with its unique styling.
