A touring Bimota Tesi might soon be on the way

Italian motorcycle manufacturer Bimota continues its tradition of building bikes that stand apart from the pack. 

At EICMA, it introduced the all-new 2022 KB4 sportbike and KB4 RC hyper naked. But also fans were left with no doubt that a touring-oriented Tesi model was on the horizon by Marconi’s comments.

“We are developing something new with a Tesi chassis. And we will see it either next year or the year after. 

Until now, Bimota made Tesis for the sports segment. We want to put the Tesi name to adventurers, tourers, and bikes like that.”

Marconi told British media outlet MCN.

Focusing on the seamless interaction between rider and machine. The frame-built Tesi models have always emphasized neutral handling characteristics. Sure-footed ergonomics and a willingness to deliver performance when called upon. 

Starting with the most recent iteration of the Tesi. The company’s iconic high-tech chassis comes paired with an engine derived from current Bimota partner Kawasaki.
