Oberdan Bezzi’s most recent work shows a few variations on the Bimota theme and this one seems interesting, it’s another possible mount for Harley Davidson’s Revolution V-Twin, he calls it the HDB-2 Sport Roadster. Highly doubtful either the Motor Company or Bimota would go for a design like this, it doesn’t fit the accepted ideas of what their brands are all about, but that’s no reason not to do it, you never know how many new customers you might attract. Especially, in Harley’s case, this would be a sweet bike, but it would probably get pushed to the back of the showroom.
There’s nothing radical here, it’s certainly within the realm of what a good custom builder could turn out and personally, I like the look a lot. We keep saying the V-Rod engine is capable of so many more applications than Harley is going to try, so where’s the builder ready to step up to build something a little different?
Thanks for the tip, Doug!

UPDATE: there are a couple of comments about the earlier Bimota HD combination, which is what Oberdan Bezzi is referring to in his name HDB2. The earlier bike from 1976 was the HDB1 seen here:
