The Bimota TESI 3D is a rare superbike which was sold in two
color versions, red and white and a Carbon Black version. The
Carbon Black Tesi 3D model features a titanium exhaust system
made by Motocorse.
One of the most striking aspects of the TESI 3D is the unusual
front suspension and hub center steering system.
The benefits of hub center steering include the absence of front
end dive under braking. The front suspension remains fully functional
in these conditions and allows better corner entrance stability
and mid-turn control. An additional benefit is the resulting
ability to use softer front suspension settings, adding an unusual
level of comfort and control in lower speeds too.
The design of the TESI 3D project was created by Bimota’s Enrico
Borghesan, who made extensive use of carbon fiber to dramatically
reduce the weight of the bike. The distinctive rear section
is formed of structural carbon fiber.
The TESI 3D is equipped with a braking system created by Bimota
and is characterized by the radial calipers put on the lowest
point of the hub. The lightweight wheels are in forged aluminium
alloy and are produced by the MARVIC exclusively for the Tesi
Yes you can buy this. However it will be second hand and require
some investigation to find one.
