 Bimota Tesi H2, patents, price, specs and more

Not long ago, when Bimota and Kawasaki made there plans clear about partnership.

Little did we knew both these manufacturers had something in their mind, which was meant to surprise the motorcycle world.

And precisely it went as per there plan. All the world lauded when it saw the humongous Tesi H2 at EICMA 2019.

Start by Pierluigi Marconi 

On April 2019 Kawasaki Motors Europe NV (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd.) established Italian Motorcycle Investment S.P.A.

With the 1,500,001 Euros the Italian Motorcycle Investment S.P.A was responsible for building and selling motorcycles.

Later in September 2020 with 64,093,000 Euros Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V., along with the KHI Group, will support BIMOTA’s revival. 

It was all followed by request to Chief Project Engineer Pierluigi Marconi to come with a powerhouse with 998cc a four-cylinder motorcycle capable of gaining high speed.

Technology 

Bimota has used the Ackerman steering Tesi H2 the same stub axle steering which is used in the earlier Bimota models.

Now there are benefits of using the stub axle steering.

As any rider riding this machine goes across tricky turns, the Hub-center comes into play by improving the navigational geometry.

To bring a consistent movement to the handlebar, it plays another crucial role by disseminating the braking, steering, and suspension roles.

Older models of Bimota do have this function, while a trellis supports the components of Kawasaki Ninja H2.

While we do see Kawasaki last year filed a similar patent.
