Additional photos of this Bimota YB11 Superleggera are available here for your perusal.

Bimota’s nomenclature is simple:
Y = Yamaha-powered
B = Bimota-designed
11 = the 11th model with a Yamaha motor.

In this case, the YB11 specifically utilized the 1,002cc inline 4 motor from a YZF1000R (known in some markets as the Thunderace), but the Bimota weighed an impressive 32 pounds less than the Yamaha. That might be why the Italian firm called this the “Superleggera.” Just 600 YB11s were built, 87 of which were originally sold in the United States. In addition, Bimota produced 50 examples of a 25th Anniversary model.

The Yamaha motor was originally good for 145 horsepower, but Bimota’s engineers bumped the number up with a larger airbox, new exhaust, and a carb re-jet. The original MSRP was approximately $30,000, and that bought you revisions to the usual Bimota frame – the main crossmember was relocated towards the steering head and the swingarm pivot point was revised. Paioli supplied the suspension, including gigantic 51mm front forks that were fully adjustable.

This example (VIN: ZESYB1100YR000628) is #22 of the 50 25th Anniversary bikes and it is one of over thirty motorcycles that we will be auctioning off from the Alan Wilzig collection over the next couple of weeks. Alan acquired it from Bimota Spirit in North Carolina n 2006.
