The Dama Bianca Sora has the Shimano Sora groupset with FSA Vero compact with a 9 speed rear and a white/black/pink paintwork.

Bianchi has produced two good bikes this year, but not a carbon offering for ladies. It would be good to see them come up with a carbon road bike to rival its competitors.
