Massimo Tamburini T12

Holding a price tag of a whopping $1 Million. The exclusive motorcycle called The Tamburini T12 is designed by one the most iconic idol in the industry. Massimo Tamburini, an Italian motorcycle designer who was the man behind the two popular motorbikes, the Ducati 916 and MV Agusta F4.

Being the Chief designer for both Ducati and MV Agusta he was also the founder of Bimota. Constantly looking for perfection Tamburini always wanted to build a bike which would be as light as possible for its displacement class.

In 2008, Tamburini left MV Agusta with a contract to not work for 3 years with any other bike firm. On 2012, he secretly started working on his dream bike, later on inviting his old friend who worked at Ferrari, as a chief engineer.

Tamburini T12

On April 2014 Tamburini passed away as he was diagnosed with lung cancer leaving the project incomplete. That is when his son Andrew Tamburini, decided to fulfil his father’s dream and decided to give the final touch to the masterpiece.

If you remember, the Tamburini T12 prototype was showcased in 2016.

The T12 Masterpiece

The bike holds a sporty, sharp-edged look where aerodynamics plays a major role. If you notice, the bike slightly mirrors the look from the MV Agusta F4. Starting from the heart, the T12 churns an incredible 230hp which is powered by a BMW S1000RR In-line 4-motor engine.

While the motor has been tuned to world superbike specifications. Given its performance, the BMW engine was the best 4 cylinder motor at that time, being the reason why Massimo Tamburini chose for his creation.
