Pure sports, designed for the ultimate road experience.

We are talking about the DB9 roadster that comes in line after the DB8, generations of hand built sports machines which continue with the tradition of top level components with subtle revisions to the seat, footrest and tank to provide improved comfort.

A new beast of a motor, an evolution of the L twin cylinder engine with improved performance and usable power, perfect lower and mid range speed where the massive torque figures build in a linear fashion for an outstanding ride.

Features and Benefits


Talking about an actual roadster, its stretched lines and its small prominent screen give the DB9 the right fighting stance.

Colouring follows the path of the BIMOTA tradition, where the white and red contrast with the black carbon superstructures.

A bike where elegance and determination get along well with each other, a unique look where the finest details are purposely in full view.


The DB9 Brivido carries a 90°L twin cylinder engine 1198cc, with a max power of 162hp/9500 rpm and a max torque of 13,1 kgm/8000 rpm. An engine equipped with an oil actuated multi-plate clutch perfect for street use.

It comes with 43mm preload-fully adjustable upside-down forks in the front, and a monoshock in the rear. Both the systems are fully adjustable in compression, rebound and preload.

Brembo braking system comes with 2x320mm radial discs 4 piston calipers and 1x220mm disc 2 piston calipers.

For what concern the "S" version, front brake is equipped with a mono-disc outlying system developed and tested with great feel and performance by Bimota R&D.
