When Kawasaki acquired Bimota in 2019 we were hopeful the pairing would revive the beloved niche brand. Now comes the fruit of the labor: the Bimota Tesi H2. What it brings to the industry is top-of-the-food-chain power with the H2-derived engine mated with the Italian chassis and design ingenuity. Bimota’s unique design is attributed to its classic Tesi front hub steering and front swingarm suspension. With its exclusivity and intriguing engineering, Bimota’s hyperbike is a through-and-through motorcycle enthusiast’s dream.
