Bimota by Maxime Lefebvre

Bimota is a small Italian manufacturer of custom and production motorcycles. It was founded in 1973 in Rimini, Italy by Valerio Bianchi, Giuseppe Morri, and Massimo Tamburini. The company name is a portmanteau derived from the first two letters of each of the three founders’ surnames, Bianchi MorriTamburini. Maxime Lefebvre, a talented artist from France, was brief to propose a race motorcycle for 2035, and this project is the result of it. Let us take a look. Enjoy!

BIMOTA track bike concept is my own proposal, but I worked in team of four people with Jean-Thomas Mayer, Antoine Lesacq and Florian Poulenard. I’m a student in 5th year at ISD Valenciennes France. I worked with a team of 4 people. Each member of the group proposed a concept (like my concept) and my proffesors chose one of these. In this case my proposal. Now we will develop the project for the end of january with 3D, etc.

I got the inspiration from all the Italian tradition, starting from the craftsmanship, the fashion, the competition, and the old Italian motorcycle like Ducati, Mv agusta, etc. with a bit of science fiction. I think it was a good mix. I worked on this concept during 3 weeks, and every week my professor check my work and he tried to make it evolve.
