In 2022, Bimota unveiled the Tera concept, signalling a move beyond sportbikes and into touring and adventure. At EICMA 2023, the bike was officially revealed in its full glory. It looks like Bimota has successfully transformed their sportbikes’ sleek and unconventional design, such as the Tesi, into an adventure-touring model.
Like the Bimota Tesi H2, the new Tera also uses technology from Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki. Powered by a 999cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, inline-four-cylinder engine with a supercharger, this tourer boasts an impressive output of 197 horsepower and 137nm of torque. To handle such power, Bimota has equipped the Tera with a unique front end borrowed from the Tesi and an Ohlins TTX 36 gas-charged shock with an external reservoir for suspension duties in both the front and rear.
Should you feel dissatisfied with Tera’s suspension setup, Bimota has an optional semi-active suspension system from Marzocchi. This will not only enhance your riding experience but also increase wheel travel to 145mm and 165mm at the front and rear. The standard Ohlins system offers 114mm and 135mm of suspension travel at the front and rear respectively.

With close to 200 horsepower and a Brembo braking system equipped with Kawasaki’s Intelligent Anti-lock Braking System (KIBS), the Tera is expected to have excellent stopping capabilities. The setup includes two four-piston Brembo Stylema calipers on semi-floating 330-millimetre rotors, with a single two-piston caliper in the rear.
Now that we’ve addressed technology and performance, it’s time to turn our attention to Tera’s styling. As expected from Bimota, this model makes a statement with its distinct design, particularly in the front end and fascia. The bike boasts a muscular appearance, with much of its visual weight centred towards the front. Buyers can choose between two versions – one in red with touring tires for on-road use, or a more adventurous khaki option with integrated side panniers.
