The 1992 MY Bimota YB8 Furano was, at its time, considered one of the best sport-bikes in the world, thanks to its tuned, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 1002cc, transverse four cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission, that produces 164 horsepower and 101 Nm of torque.

It also had race-grade parts such as an Ohlins suspension package, with an upside-down, adjustable, fork and an adjustable mono-shock in the rear, Brembo brakes with dual discs in the front and a single disc in the rear, a full-fairing, a large windscreen, a single seat and an analogue instrument cluster.
