Bimota DB11 VLX: Supercharged Superbike

Superbike
IF AN 1198 is simply not fast enough for you. If you feel that any engine making less than 170bhp should be reserved for a mobility scooter, then Bimota's new DB11 VLX is for you.
The DB11 is a new-for-2013 motorcycle from Bimota, based around Ducati's 1198 Testastretta motor, it's typical glorious, over the top, Bimota affair.
The DB11 VLX is something else: it comes with a supercharger, taking the motor's output to 190bhp. Yes please.
We don't know much else about the bike (can you imagine a company like Bimota running something as sensible as a Press Office) but it looks like it's using the same NiCrMo4 steel with aluminum plate chassis as the DB9, Marzocchi suspension front and rear with high/low speed compression damping, Brembo M4 radial calipers and lightweight OZ wheels.
We like the front fairing; it's part KTM RC8, part BMW K100RT but it works and who would have put those two together?
