Peugeot RCZ R Bimota special edition revealed with 304bhp

Automakers have teamed up with motorcycle manufacturers before for special editions from Harley-Davidson and Ford to Mercedes-Benz and Dugatti.

This time Peugeot has joined forces with Italian motorcycle manufacturer Bimota for a RCZ R Bimota special edition, which was introduced during the Motor Bike Expo in Verona.

The RCZ R Bimota wears PB104 name, where PB is referring to Peugeot and Biota, while “1” is the project number one and 04 stands for four wheels.

The exterior is quite bright and typical to Bimota, featuring a three-colour racing livery and black five-spoke alloy wheels.

Interior boasts Alcantara leather wrapped seats, dashboard with red accents, a leather wrapped box for two motorcycle helmets that replaces the rear seats, two GoPro cameras and a TomTom Bridge infotainment system with 7-inch display.

Under the bonnet is a 1.6-litre THP petrol turbo that has been updated with a new blow-off valve for the turbo, remapped ECU, as well as a new exhaust.

As a result power is up from 273bhp to a new output of 304bhp. There are also new 4-piston 380 mm front brakes and a suspension lowered by 10 mm, giving it a more sportier look.
