The brand new Peugeot RCZ R Bimota has been officially unveiled by the car manufacturer during a Motor Bike show in Verona, Italy.
In case you have been concerned on why Peugeot isn’t offering more special editions of the RCZ, don’t worry, because one of them has recently seen daylight, during the Verona Motor Bike Expo, in Italy. The model in question has been named the Peugeot RCZ R Bimota and it has been put together by the French based automaker, together with Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Bimota. The vehicle has also been named the PB104, coming from Peugeot and Bimota, “1” for the project number and “04” from the number of wheels.
The Peugeot RCZ R Bimota can easily stand out from a crowd thanks to its distinctive 3-color racing livery, to the black five-spoke alloy wheels and to the modified cabin, which has received features such as the TomTom Bridge infotainment system with a 7-inch display, the leather wrapped box for two motorcycle helmets instead of the rear seats, the Alcantara wrapped seats and dashboard with their red accents, the two GoPro cameras and several other tweaks which should put some space between it and regular RCZs. Under its hood, the 1.6 liter petrol THP turbo has received a new valve for the turbo, a remapped ECU and a new exhaust system, producing a total output of 304 HP (224 kW), compared to the standard 270 HP (201 kW). Suspension has been lowered by 10 mm and the brakes have been upgraded.
