The Bimota KB4 has been recently revealed in EICMA 2021. The bike looks stunning with a retro-style classy look and is set to appear with Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX’s powerful engine! So let’s dive in and take a look at everything this Italian motorcycle with a Japanese engine has to offer.

There will be two variants produced for the Bimota KB4 - the standard variant and the LB4 RC or the Race Cafe. Both these variants will sport an aluminum alloy swingarm, a stunning trellis frame, and both will receive Kawasaki’s engine.

The standard variant will sport a circular headlamp with a street-style front fairing with a sharply designed fuel tank, making it one of the best-looking motorbikes in the market. The KB RC on the other hand will be a naked version of the standard machine with a different rear cowl and without the fairing.

According to news, the KB4 will be sporting Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX’s powerful inline-four engine. Why a Japanese engine you ask? Well, Kawasaki owns a considerable stake in the Italian company and has graciously lent their 1000 SX engine to elevate the KB4.

The Ninja engine provides superb performance with a power output of 142hp and 111 Nm of torque. The engine will also be accompanied by a 6-speed gearbox for optimum riding experience. The only difference will be that the KB4 will sport a new exhaust system that will have a single end can.

Apart from the similarity in the engine, the Bimota KB4 will have nothing in common with the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX. The KB4 will be much lighter than the Ninja 1000 SX at just 187kg and its chassis will be very different with a striking tubular frame. The KB4 is likely to sport a carbon fiber bodywork which is guaranteed to look stylish while maintaining the lightweight stance of the bike.

Bimota has also revealed that their new bike will sport a smaller wheelbase at 1390mm, much shorter than Ninja 1000 SX. Also, to accommodate the smaller wheelbase, the automakers shifted the front wheel closer to the engine without shortening the bike’s swingarm. The bike will sport an FGRT 43 NIX30 fork and TTX 36 shock in the front and rear ends respectively.

Bimota will be changing the position of the radiator in the new bike. From being fixed in front of the engine, it will now be fixed under the seat, allowing a great air intake from both sides of the fairing. The radiator will also be accompanied by a carbon-fiber tunnel running from the seat to the intake.

Lastly, while no price reveal has been done, keeping in mind the powerful engine and the features the new model has to offer, it will be slightly more expensive than its predecessors. So stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming Bimota KB4!
