The Italian factory has finally pulled the wraps off its KB4 (and revealed a naked version of it called the KB4 RC).
Bimota’s been back on our radar since 2019 when we saw the Tesi H2 for the first time, and since then we’ve been hearing plenty of talk about the KB4. Now it’s finally made an appearance, with the Italian factory showing off its Tesi H2, KB4, and a surprise KB4 RC at the EICMA show a few weeks ago.
Powered by the 1043cc 140bhp engine from the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX, the KB4 gets a bespoke frame, suspension and chassis components, but is packaged to look like a sportsbike from yesteryear (albeit with a modern twist).The KB4 RC Is Is its naked sibling and comes kitted out with rear-mounted cooling fans and a sharp design. Both bikes are very well equipped, with Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Pirelli Supercorsa rubber and a Kawasaki electronics package (In the form or the lean-sensitive and cornering ABS).
There’s been no news about pricing just yet, but considering the Tesl H2’s £59,000 price tag,
It’s not too much of a stretch to expect the KB4’s coming in around the 30 grand mark. Expected to be available in the UK from February, we should find out even more information very soon.
