Bimota's new UK-arm, AMV Motorcycles, is busily preparing for its first batch of test bikes which are scheduled to arrive imminently.

Headed up by Graham Manchester, and based in East Sussex, AMV will operate under the Bimota S.p.A umbrella with a full range of bikes available for demonstration in the UK.

For consumers wishing to test ride any one of the new Bimota range, AMV will arrange a test ride from the manufacturer's factory based in Rimini, Italy. Whilst the potential customer will initially fund the cost of the flight and hotel, (only arranged by AMV), if that interest is converted to a sale with an order placed and deposit paid, while the rider is in situ, the cost of flight and hotel will be refunded against the purchase price of the machine.

The current Bimota range of machines are fitted with Ducati engines, and so approved Ducati-franchised dealers are currently being appointed as service points.

AMV can be contacted on 01825 733867 or via email; or
