Tamburini T12 Massimo Superbike

One of the bittersweet parts of losing a creative and prodigal worker is that even after they have gone, their creations can still live on. Years after the passing of Massimo Tamburini, the final bike he worked on has been finished and is ready to absolutely tear up the track. Meet the T12 Massimo.

A bike designed around the BMW S 1000 RR four cylinder engine that lets out a wild 230 horsepower, it is capable of reaching incredible speeds thanks not just to its engine, but the precise assemblage of all of its quality components. You simply won’t find these kinds of materials on other bikes, even high end ones. The swing arm is made of a magnesium alloy, as are the Marchesini wheels and steering tube while the exhaust piping is made of titanium. The handlebars, footlegs, and levers are all crafted from lightweight, yet durable aluminum. Engineers working on the bike didn’t go through all of that work not to throw on top notch components, of course, which is why they included everything from Brembo Monoblocc brakes to the Ohlins suspension. All of this is made that much more impressive when you realize that the bike, weighed dry, comes in only at 340 pounds – almost as light as your pockets after you empty them out to meet the $341,000 asking price.
