Back in the day, “Bimota” was a symbol of well thought out light, powerful bikes that my friends and I could never afford. This SB6R is the first Bimota I’ve touched.

The sub frame is a one piece carbon fiber unit. Three bolts on each side, two springs off the exhaust, unplug one gang plug from the harness and you just lift it off. I was thinking these bikes were everything we though they were.

But to remove the front shock bolt you need to move the air box. The clamp for the remote shock reservoir under the bike does not have trapped nuts and the foot peg bracket has to be removed and the hose untangled from wires to get the reservoir out.

Oh well, the dream lasted a few minutes and really, I’m not perfect either.
