So he chose an 1200cc BMW boxer engine, and went on to create a bike form scrap. Sharing his vision with Bonamici Racing, who are official BMW Superbike suppliers, Giulio had them build a completely new frame which was to add a completely new dimension to the build.

Low, and with function prevailing to the form, the Diva comes with te fuel tank under the seat like, also helping mass centralization and handling.

The short profile of the rear subframe also adds an almost unnatural degree of aggressivity to Giulio's build, furthermore increased by the racing fork and clip-ons, relocated instrument cluster and amazing seat.

Giulio made liberal use of carbon fiber parts: he created the shapes and Pro-Lite Advanced Composites built them, with color embedded in the material before being autoclaved, so the finish is impeccable.

The Diva is literally loaded with WSBK-grade parts, but it still looks more like a classic roadster than a speed machine. Giulio Paz himself says that the Diva is more of a very good-looking handmade fast bike than a racer.

Looking at the bike and understanding this is a one-man idea, it's hats off time!
