Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this Bimota DB6 Delirio. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
It was the “cheapest” Bimota in the lineup, though it’s hard to call any bike cheap when the MSRP was over $30,000. For that money, you got Ducati’s dual-spark air-cooled V-Twin, good for 90 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque.
You also got styling unlike any other Bimota. For more information, check out this review from Visor Down.
This example (VIN: ZESD699237R000038) was accepted as a trade-in by our neighbors at Bartel’s Harley-Davidson, so the history is not well-known, but it runs well and simply needs a new owner to keep enjoying it! The previous owner had a loan on it but the bike has been paid off – Bartel’s is waiting for the title from the bank and will have it in their possession shortly.
9/17 Update: the previous owner has kindly left a comment with more information about this Bimota!
“I purchased this DB6 Delirio from a friend (the 2nd owner) who also has the 1100cc DB6R version and both he and I are meticulous re: maintenance and careful yet “spirited” riders. I have not bombed around pulling wheelies on this bike in like some Superduke owners I know with their bikes. It’s not that I couldn’t but I had wanted this model for a very long time. So why sell it you ask? Well I decided I wanted something different and if I could have kept it, I would have done just that.
Re: the mileage, the original dash cluster went wonky on my friend and Bimota at the time “offered” to sell an updated version. The catch was the price and the entire new chassis harness required, hence the very nice digital and programmable Micro-3 dash. The mileage prior to dash replacement was 3,056. When I bought it, the new dash showed 1,715 for a total actual mileage of 4,771. When I started this process of selling/buying, I believe I had 7,683 total miles and by the time I traded it in, it was around 8,000. It’s easy, just add the current indicates mileage to 3,056 and “Bob’s your uncle”.
As you can see, the bike has many DB6R carbon fiber bits (front fender, rear fender, chain guard, belt covers, 3/4 open clutch cover, gauge cover), Earth-X Li-PO battery, etc., NEVER abused, always maintained and garaged.
