Massimo Tamburini T12 Super Track Bike : The Last Creation of legendary motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini
The last creation by the late motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini, the T12 Massimo has finally been revealed. The T12 Massimo was revealed by his son, Andrea Tamburini, and other members of the Tamburini family at Fabbrica Arte Rimini (Rimini Art Factory) as a homage to Massimo’s works.
The T12 Massimo is ready for an extremely limited production run with a selling price of about 300,000.00 Euros. The high cost is due to the extreme levels of high quality materials used, hand crafted components, and extremely high (air craft grade) levels of machined accuracy with the fabricated components.
What makes the T12 Massimo very unique is that it was built by a revered master designer and builder. He has a track record of creating some of the most sought after motorbikes in the world. In addition, the Late Massimo Tamburini was the mastermind behind the Ducati 916, the MV Agusta F4, the Bimota KB1, and many other motorcycle marvels.
