Massimo Tamburini (1943-2014) succumbed to cancer which he was trying to heal by last November. He founded Bimota together with Bianchi and ╠´rri. 
After leaving Bimota he designed bikes such as Cagiva Mito, MV Agusta F4 750, Brutale, F3 675 and the Ducati Paso, 851/888, 916/996. He was excellent designing frames and styling which can be proved by these top creations of his.
