Bimota is closed for good

Italian motorcycle brand Bimota factory doors finally closed down last week. The factory located in via Giaccaglia, on the outskirts of Rimini is now empty. Outside, the Bimota sign has been taken down, marking the end of a celebrated Italian motorcycle brand. Bimota was surviving as largely a supplier of spare parts to the existing models, like the BB3, but over the past few years, the company’s fortunes have nosedived, with ownership changing several times.

The present Bimota owners are Italian contractors living and operating in Switzerland. According to reports, there are no chances of the company resuming production, with all the components being moved out of the factory to a shop near Lugano, Switzerland, bordering Italy. As such, the future of the brand is uncertain and there is no news on whether production will resume, or if any new models are being planned from the Switzerland shop.

Bimota bikes have had a colourful past, especially in racing, experiencing success in the early years of Superbike World Championship.
