R.I.P. Massimo Tamburini

It's sad news that Massimo Tamburini has died at just 70 years old. The word legendary is over used nowadays, but Tamburini was a true legend in the Italian and international motorcycle world.

He started off bending and welding his own frames while working as an air conditioning engineer during the day, and ended up designing the Ducati 916 which is arguably one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever built, the MV Agusta F4, and many others.

I have ridden quite a few Bimotas in my time, and so for me personally, that very special feeling that a Bimota gives you, whether powered by an Italian, Japanese or any other motor, best represents Tamburini's abilities, skill and vision.
