Bimota SB8K édition Santa Monica 2004

With its new SB8K, Bimota cultivates its brand image as a prestigious, passionate manufacturer, creator of exclusive and sublime motorcycles. The SB8K, an evolution of the SB8R, is intended to defend the colors of Rimini in the Superbike championship but above all to remind ordinary people of this: the Bimota were and remain machines above what exists..
The factory remains faithful to its habits to motorize its models – to collaborate with another manufacturer. Like the SB8R, the K is powered by the Suzuki twin of the 1000 TLR. Revised, improved, it delivers more than 7 additional guns than in the Japanese sports car. The torque is also progressing while the electronic management is entrusted to a new system.

The most interesting is everything that surrounds this engine. The chassis first, sumptuous, made up of a frame made of double aluminum spars connected to carbon elements. The swingarm, the footrest plates and the self-supporting saddle, also in carbon, are attached to it..
The SB8K is available in 2 versions: the Gobert and the Santamonica, different by subtle attributes. The Santamonica is distinguished by its radial brake calipers, its fork Öhlins (Paioli on the Gobert), its 15mm longer wheelbase, taller windscreen, golden OZ Racing rims and some € 4,000 more.
Let those who are allergic to carbon run away. The SB8K is full of them: mudguards, saddle, fairing, frame, wheel licker … you can find them everywhere. No wonder the machine weighs only 175 kg.
It can leave you unmoved if you compare it to the last GSX-R 1000, with 178 hp for 166 kg. But in this case, you have just missed something beautiful. The SB8K is not just a sports car, it’s a Bimota. A motorcycle that we desire, that we admire, that we caress … that bewitches us !
