Bimota KB4 specs revealed after documents are submitted for type approval. Considered creating a good trend with the return of the famous brand Bimota at the last EICMA Show 2019, the company has announced a collaboration with Japanese giant Kawasaki to bring the brand back to the stage. motorcycle world again Along with the launch of the Bimota Tesi H2 that borrowed the engine. The supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2 is based on the company's unique structure. Along with the release of the new Bimota KB4 prototype model, we are very excited.
Recently, Bimota has submitted a document for type approval for the distribution of KB4 to the European Union. And there has been some information about the specification of the car coming out at the same time. Which we have brought it to tell friends to know in this news.

Using the KB4 ID is a tradition that Bimopta has always done. Whether borrowing any engine from any brand, KB stands for Kawasaki Bimota, which is like any model name. HB, which borrows engines from Honda, SB codes from Suzuki engines, and DB BB YB, all use Ducati, BMW and Yamaha engines on their own products. KB1 in 1978, KB2 Laser in 1987, KB2 TT in 1983, the last to use Kawasaki with the KB3 in 1983, and most recently with the upcoming KB4 in 2022.


As we all know, the new KB4 will be based on a 1043cc, four-cylinder straight-line engine from the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX, but with an exhaust system developed by the company. The new system does not contribute to any increase in engine power or torque. The engine retains the same peak power as the Ninja 1000 SX, which can produce 140 horsepower (HP) at 10,000 rpm and 82 Ib-FT of peak torque. 8000 rpm. Compared to other bikes in the same class, the KB4 seems to be inferior, but this can be offset by some features that we are quite excited about.


The excitement that we're quite interested in on the KB4 is the weight, as the KB4 borrows the engine from Kawasaki, but the structure on the bike is entirely new. The car uses a tubular steel frame. It features an alloy swingarm pivot section and a carbon fiber seat subframe, and is lighter than the Ninja 1000SX. The latest documentation states that the KB4 weighs 194 kg in full tank, which is lighter than the fully liquid Ninja 1000 SX. At 41 kg, we immediately infer that the KB4 is significantly more powerful than the Ninja 1000 SX.


Although the documentation states that the KB4 will have a top speed limit of 155 mph (about 250 km/h) as the Ninja 1000 SX does, we can say that the KB4 will be able to hit its top speed. It's definitely faster than the 1000 SX, but it doesn't seem suited to the racetrack anyway. To enter the WorldSBK arena because of engine capacity regulations and performance at a disadvantage against competitors


Not only the replacement of the body kit and the Bimota exhaust system, there has also been a change in the position of the radiator in the cooling system. Observing photos from a series of tests seem to show that the engine is being plugged into a more forward position than usual. Combined with the large air intakes on both sides of the fairing and what appear to be carbon fiber pipes running straight from the front to the rear of the car, this is the case. This means the radiator is moved from the normal point between the engine and the front wheels to new position under the seat This means that the engine can be moved closer to the front wheels. Makes the distribution of the weight that is poured to the front more This directly affects the design of the front swingarm. used in conjunction with the system Hub-Steerring At the same time, the wheelbase of the 1000 SX has been reduced from 1,440 millimeters to 1,390 millimeters, which clearly affects the turning distance of the car.

Let's go back to the radiator under the seat for a bit. Because in fact it is only a hypothesis. The manufacturer has no official information on this matter. Also, we haven't opened the car's fairing to make it clear whether the radiator is actually under the seat or not. But if we had to guess, the Bimota probably won't take the same approach as the Benelli Tornado RS900, the last bike to use an under-seat radiator. which requires a large area to install a fan at the end and make the area of ​​the sub-frame structure larger than necessary Which we have to wait and see how Bimota uses a solution to this problem.

In addition to the lightweight structure And the story of the systems on the KB4 body, Bimota has used many premium elements on the car. It features Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension and comes with 17-inch forged wheels wearing 120/70-17 and 190/50-17 tires. We are familiar with today's market.


At this point, one should be very skeptical about the market positioning of the new KB4 as it is quite unique. We wouldn't expect it to be an affordable bike. And it doesn't stray from the Tesi H2, which costs a lot more than the Ninja H2, which borrows several times the engine, as does the KB4, although it doesn't borrow the 200hp engine from the ZX-10R. work, but the price of the KB4 should be higher than the limited-edition ZX-10RR used on the racetrack. Therefore, it is unlikely to be an accessible vehicle. There is a wall in terms of price and the value of technology that is considered high. which it should be classified as an Exotic Bike with a specific use group And it is not released in general sales like the previous Tesi H2.

For the launch, Bimota is expected to take the stage at EICMA SHow 2021 as a platform for the launch of this new model. Bimota is likely to follow the same principles as 2019, with the launch of one new product model and at least one more concept or prototype. Bimota is expected to take the bike in a Naked Sport approach this time. Which we have to wait and see if this event Bimota will create more trends and interesting things for us.
