Tamburini

Gentlemen,

I am seriously considering buying a Tamburini. I currently ride a Duc Tricolore. It has had it's share of problems but I still love it. However the Tamburini just won't go away. So my request here is for any and all comments positive and negative about the Tamburini. There is no place better to get the honest scoop than the trenches. Give me the picture will you fellas?

Thanks,

Lee

lucky man, if i could, i would! Probably the sexiest bike ever made with performance to match. If you've ridden a 1000 before you'll know what to expect, and expect more. what more is there to say..........

Hi Lee,

As for the Tambo... I can't comment, but as the the F4 in general... its certainly got character. Mine is 'only' a 750 but i reckon the better you are, the more it rewards you.

Tip: if you,ve not ridden an F4 before, be careful at very low speed (in car parks, at junctions etc). they can trap your thumbs at the very moment they tip into the turn on full steering lock. That's the only negative thing i can think of. Oh, and my bike needs to have its tyres hot like no other make ive ridden!

Whats gone wrong with the ducati? My Dad's getting rather close to handing over a deposit on an 848.

I have not had the fortune to ride one only my 1000S which I would honestly have that over the 1098S (though the 1098 is a great bike and would be my second choice in the price range) but the Tambo is a level above what we are talking about in both looks and performance.

Tambo or 1098TC...love the TC but no contest.

No I have not found one yet. There's a brand new one in the crate at Feracci's but the guy who bought it did so to turn a buck and the bidding is now up to 60K. I don't want one that bad. So I'll just keep my eyes and ears open. A nice one will turn up eventually.

As for the 1098. Don't get me wrong, it's a super fine machine. But there have been probs with stalling (both at a stop and while running), starters, batteries, cam timing, cam belt tension, misfiring and rough running below 4000 rpm, stuck throttles (at 4000 rpm on the road), bad ECU's, failing to start at all, etc. etc. I know it's a tempermental Italian scoot but guys bikes have spent more time in the shop than on the road. It's a bit much, wouldn't you say?

Anyone know of a Tamburini for sale please let me know. Either email or 1 724 772 9182.
