That Would be Insane
The Tesi H2 from Bimota is being co-developed with Kawasaki. The bike broke cover at EIMCA. It’s a sharp-looking sportbike, and one of the most interesting of the show. Kawasaki is rumored to have bought Bimota, and this would be one of the first big projects that the brands have worked on together. According to MoreBikes, the Tesi H2 is rumored to be able to make 300 hp.
The publication reported on some new spy shots of the bike testing in Italy. It had large outrigger arms and sliders on it to keep it from falling over. I presume that the company is testing the bike’s lean angles and seeing what it’ll do in the wet. Those outriggers allow the company to go over the limit without damaging the bike.
While these photos are interesting, what’s more interesting is what MoreBikes says about the bike. In a section hemmed in with pictures of a Tesi H2 test bike indoors, the publication discusses the 998cc four-cylinder inline engine with a centrifugal supercharger. One of the things mentioned is that the engine could make 300 hp in finished form. MoreBikes doesn’t say where this information came from, but that would be absolutely nuts. It would put Bimota at the peak of the sportbike segment in terms of all-out power.
