Can you ride the Bimota DB5 on an A2 licence?
Yes, you can ride the Bimota DB5 (2005 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. However, you will need to fit a restrictor kit to reduce its power output and make it A2 licence compliant!
Bimota DB5 (2005 onwards)
Bimota is a very special motorcycle manufacturer. Their motorcycles are competitive for track racing, however they are not that practical for everyday use. The DB5 is equipped with an older v-twin engine made by Ducati. It is not as powerful as some of the top-of the line engines, but it offers very good acceleration and a lot of torque at low revs.
The bike is extremely lightweight and the riding quality is on a very high level. It is equipped with the finest brakes and suspension available on the market. Unfortunately, due to its bleeding-edge technology, the Bimota DB5 is a very expensive motorcycle.
If you are looking for a truly unique A2-friendly sport bike and you don’t care about its high price tag, then the Bimota DB5 might be the one you are looking for.
