This Superbike uses the engine of the BMW S 1000 RR with 230 hp power. And that expresses the ultimate motoring vision of Tamburini himself. A triumph of ultralight elements dominated by the carbon fiber (so much so that the claimed dry weight is 154.5 kg) worked with numerical control machines and first-class components where the special suspension Ohlins GP and l ' Brembo brakes with monoblock calipers P4 GP 34/38.

The real technical jewel of this T12 is a trellis frame with steel from the military and elements of magnesium alloy. On the trellis, in the area of the steering tube, a patented device has been assembled (including the technical details) they were not disclosed which makes variable transverse rigidity. This bike was launched with a whopping price tag of €300,000 (2.26 crore approx) making it the most expensive production bike.
