Tesi is Italian for “thesis”, and the name reflects that this bike started as a thesis project by Pierluigi Marconi exploring hub-center steering for his mechanical engineering degree.

The first generation was the 1D, which utilized the 93 horsepower twin from the Ducati 851. By the third generation (3D), the Ducati-built engine was the 1,078cc dual spark unit rated for 97 horsepower. But in November 2019, Kawasaki announced that they were supporting “Bimota’s revival” with a press release suggesting that they were going to produce 200 models of an updated Tesi. And this time, the power quotient would be going way up, because they would use the supercharged heart from a Ninja H2. For this generation, the Tesi has an engine that matches the dramatic looks. Bimota claims that with a ram-air effect, the 998cc engine produces 239 horsepower.

The H2 didn’t just give its engine for the Bimota, it gave its name, too: meet the Bimota Tesi H2.

The tremendous power is matches with a tremendous sound thanks to gorgeous headers that end in a numbered Arrow silencer.

In true Bimota fashion, this weighs less than the bike that it was based on – the Tesi H2 weighs 472 pounds wet, which is 53 pounds less than a Ninja H2. The diet is complemented with the use of high end components throughout, including lavish use of carbon fiber and dual Ohlins shocks.

This example (VIN: 4B9CH2009LR106003, Engine #: ZXT00NE015417) is #3 of the production run destined for America.
