Description

Bimota 500 Vdue Trofero

One of only 26 ever built!


Manufactured in 1997. this bike was used in the Italian one-make race series in 2000.  

After a managerial change. Bimota decided it was time to solve the troubles of the injection unit. The engine of the Vdue got new cranks. bearings (on the inside of the crank seals). more accurate ports in the cylinders and 39. 5mm Dell'Orto carbs. With these modifications the engine was reliable enough that Bimota sponsored a challenge series called "Trophy". The motorcycles where "leased" directly by the factory with different exhaust system. carburetors. electrical harness reduced to the minimum and new digital instrument panel with integrated ECU.

This particular machine was run by the Tutapista team and the rider was Andrea Iommi  - number 52 as can be seen on the attached photo.

I bought the machine in 2003 from North Leicester motorcycles. It has a full V5. but I have never used it on the road. but it could be easily returned to full road spec as  all the parts needed are available with the bike apart from a rear light and numberplate holder.

The bike was uprated in 2009 with a brand new Evo half engine with Trofero cylinders. In 2011 I fitted brand new Brembo discs. nbsp; A Brembo 19mm master cylinder and new pads. the forks were also serviced and rebuilt with heaver 1kg springs.   The engine has recently been refreshed by Total Traction in Dec 13. with new pistons. mains. seal etc. and still needs running in as i have not used it since this rebuild. The rear Ohlins shock was also serviced and rebuilt by MCT at the same time.

The bike also comes with the bottom end of the original engine (no. 25) switch gear and headlight. It has a new 3 piece fibre glass fairing. fully sprayed professionally in Bimota red. green and white fitted. It also comes with original body work. I have all the paperwork. including handbook. x2 keys. original bill of sale and a variety of receipts for all the work undertaken over the years of my ownership.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of only 26 bikes ever produced. As you can see the bike has been meticulously maintained over my 11 years of ownership regardless of cost. This bike is fully sorted and ready to ride and is not just an ornament!


Viewing is recommended and encouraged…. you will not be disappointed….
