IDM was born from our passion about dreams, engines and freedom
Italian Dream Motorcycle, it is not a garage, it is not a workshop, but a microscopic motorbike manufacturer,our mission is to create high performance vehicles, made specifically for mechanic electronics and cycling.
Our engines are inspired by our Italian heritage and fine tuned by our years of mechanics experience in the racing world.
Every season we showcase our limited edition products, of which a maximum of 5 are made, exclusively motorcycles, where nothing is left to chance.
And any new time we make a bike in homage to one of the 6 Italian riders who won the world championship of motorcycling in the queen class.
The man who create and is beyond Italian Dream Motorcycle is Sergio Giordano
"We wanted to start with the one that best represents our idea, and Lucchinelli as well as being a dreamer is certainly a free man, it has always been. and then it's an idol when I was a child.
At the same time and in the same way our first collection is inspired by Carlo Talamo, his genius, and his most beautiful creature the Speed Triple, motorcycle of which he was the father. Carlo Talamo has inspired all my work and my approach to the world of motorcycles.
As always before in my head, I started to throw down some design from the material I had collected and it started. I'm obsessed with the fact, that the means should be built with the utmost care for the mechanics and for the chassis, how many thousands of fantastic special motorcycles are seen, I would be curious to know how many really work, and to work I mean that they go to the maximum of potential of their performance, My Father was a professional Car pilot, my back ground of the racing world teaches me this. "
"Italian Dream is an unusual company run by a remarkable man, at the age of 30 Sergio Giordano was diagnosed with cancer,
while fighting the disease he joined a gym and threw himself headlong into training.
With the help of a brutal gym routine he was both cancer free and fighting fit within two years – he was so fit he won his weight division in a national Italian body building championship, two years after that he won his division in the European championship.
Earlier in his life Sergio travelled through Indonesia, Spain, South America, and North Africa, spending 15 years living abroad.
During his life he has worked as everything from an SSI Trainer Scuba Instructor to the founder of Italy’s most successful chain of Japanese restaurants Jorudan Sushi, before pursuing his lifelong passion
– motorcycles and motorcycle racing.
Today Sergio runs both Italian Dream Motorcycle to build motorcycles and
Italian Dream Motorcycle Media which manages the Pedercini Racing Team,
and acts as the agent for a number of riders including world champion
Raffaele De Rosa. Each year Italian Dream Motorcycle builds a bike inspired
by one of the great Italian world championship motorcycle racers, this series
was dedicated to Marco Lucchinelli – a racer who was nicknamed Crazy
Horse for his wild and unpredictable riding style.
Sergio exclusively uses engineers and mechanics from the MotoGP or WSBK circuit for his builds to ensure unparalleled quality.
Each build is designed with a strict function-over-form philosophy, ensuring the completed motorcycle is invariably significantly
quicker around the track than the bike it started out as."

1.How did Dream Motorcycle started?
Sergio: Like many things, this too was an idea that I had in my head for years. My father is a pilot, I was born among the engines. When I was young I met Carlo Talamo who has greatly inspired this work of mine and to whom the Triple Series is dedicated.
I felt the need to create something of really special, and unique. As I usually do in my work I have studied a lot and I have documented. Hence the decision to take advantage of the incredible heritage we have in Italy when it concerns the world of engines, and motorcycles. obsessed with the fact that the bikes have to work, and do it at their best, I have come to collaborate mainly with technicians and mechanics of the world of MotoGp and WSBK, this has led me from last year to collaborate with the Private Team Kawasaki in WSBK by Lucio Pedercini, and become an agent of some Pilots including world champion Raffaele De Rosa.
I am convinced that there is a lot more “Custom” and “Special” in the racing box, than in many of these Concept Garage Gurus of Cafe Racer.
2.How did the idea to cover the Street Triple (revering to Triple 0.0 model).As generally the Street Triple is naked bike?
Sergio: In this case the choice is dictated by a stylistic requirement linked to the design of the bike. Even if all our decision regarding the aesthetics of the bike, it must have its correspondence in the functionality of the vehicle.
In this case the half fairings host a series of components, as well as providing the oil. I also enjoyed the idea of naked motorcycles, I do not exclude soon to do the opposite.
3.Do you think Electric bikes is competition to Custom Motorcycle market? Any plans to build Electric Motorcycle Customs?
Sergio: The big dilemma with the electric bikes. Valentino in these days has expressed his disappointment on the competitions of electric propelled vehicles. I have a training that comes from the racing world, so I can only share this idea for what concerns the competitions.
I find the challenge for everyday mobility it’s very interesting. And for the particularity of the segment I think it makes absolutely sense to think of the Electric Custom.
It is a challenge that I would like to face, there is an important company close to us.
Energica Motor Company, and in my mind to propose a collaboration in this sense, we must see their availability and desire to invest.
4.When you start to put Design on paper. What comes first to your mind?
Sergio : My process is reverse, I think a lot, especially at night, I use this time to study and reflect, I always visualize what I want first and even if I close my eyes I can see it, then it goes to work on paper. I’m not a professional, so I need a designer to put all my drawings, sketches, cut-outs, and collages into order, and put the drawing into dimensions and create the rendering to work on.
5.What is the best custom motorcycle according to you?
Sergio: Customization if you think about it is a very arrogant and presumptuous band. You take something that someone else has done and you presume to change it, modify it.
Well if you have all this arrogance, then you have to be sure to do it well, this means that every change you have to go to do will have to go to improve the medium, not only taking care of the aesthetics but above all the performance.
We talk about engines, mechanical vehicles, first of all they must work, operate at their full potential.
There are dozens, if not hundreds of custom bikes Beautiful, wonderful and very famous and known, many of these I’d like to try and see them turn.
In any case, our point of arrival and the complete construction of the vehicle, one day… and meanwhile as a term, I prefer Special, to custom.
6.How are your custom motorcycles different from rest?
Sergio: I cannot answer this question, in fact almost everything, starting with the approach, we are not a garage, not a workshop, rather a microscopic constructor.
We do not wait for someone to come and ask me to customize a motorbike. Every year we present a series of limited edition motorcycles, according to our tastes and our ideas.
In these two years we have presented 5 bikes completely different from each other in all, starting point, have the engine, displacement, design, but all have one thing in common, they are not show bikes … This is before anything.
7.How do you see yourself in future?
Sergio: I am always very determined, I was sure that IDM would have been successful, but I did not imagine such a great media impact in such a short time. We were really very lucky and I am very enthusiastic about this.
But it is not easy to answer because I have different ideas, and many proposals. At the moment we have 9 different projects and 3 collaborations with Motorcycle Companies. Next year I will start my collaboration in WSBK because the racing world is very important for us too, and I do not exclude a Racing Team in the short term.
