Massimo Tamburini Dies
Nico Cereghini remembers the Maestro Massimo Tamburini , the author of the most beautiful Italian sports , passed away tonight for an incurable disease

A very bad news last night has died Massimo Tamburini . Unfortunately, he was sick a few months ago , few knew the severity of his condition, and lung cancer, if it is taken away in a hurry.

Massimo was seventy-one years old, was born in Rimini in November of '43 , and many loved him even among readers of our website. He was a great designer , but also a motorcycle enthusiast . His genius has given us some of the most beautiful motorcycle in the world, by Bimota to Ducati Supersport , from small up to 125 Cagiva MV . No one could remain indifferent to the vibrations emanating his creations , which were perfect in every detail but above all they were living creatures . The modern sport bike has done Maximus. And he often told that after the first conversion of an MV 750, coming so-so, it was launched in the reconstruction of his Honda 750 Four demolished on the track at Misano, in a disastrous fall in the curve of the Oak . To do it again as it was , began to redesign the frame and then the tank and fairing , and so were born the Bimota . "I had fallen in Oak - he said, smiling like a biker any - maybe I would not have even made the Bimota ."

We will remember him with affection and nostalgia, and these days we shake ideally to his wife , his daughter , his son who followed his way. Personally, I met Max and his wife in September, when I went to San Marino to see him in his big house to carry out the interview for Moto.it. I did not know that could be the last : Massimo Tamburini was full of enthusiasm , had no intention of getting retired , he had big plans ; remember his vision of a sports bike fully adjustable in all of its parameters , including the stiffness of the frame . I was amused that afternoon with Massimo . He was friendly, witty , ready to go. Will be missed by all those who knew him , and to others , to all those who simply love the bike . And who knows how Massimo Tamburini has given us .

There's a recent thread around here on the values of special edition MVs. I'm guessing the Tambo just went up in value.
