Vyrus 986 M2: First Moto2 racer for the road

Exotic Italian manufacturer Vyrus is planning a road-going version of its new 986 M2 Factory Moto2 racer - yours for £21,000. The 124bhp, 155kg hand-built 986 M2 SL Replica will go into production by the end of the year. The first shake-down tests for the actual Moto2 racer, which weighs in at just 235kg, are taking place now in Italy. When the...

I want to see the Moto2 racer competing

It's been 25 yrs since a funny front end competed in GP's with the ELF. Ah perhaps not. Was there not a Gilera 125 or 250 with a single fork leg in 91/92?

vyrus could be catching.......

This latest incarnation from Vyrus could definately catch on if only they were more affordable !!

I take it it uses the HONDA CBR 600 RR engine?

Hope it does well if they decide to race it,as this type of bike has never really been developed enough to see the prices fall enough to see them en-mass on  the road.

I know Bimota tried for years with the TESI but the prices were for the RICH ONLY to experience.

Liking this

Very much indeed. One of the areas that sportsbikes have yet to fully exploit are reduced braking dstances. While braking performance and telescopic fork design has improved it, it could be so much better. Hopefully these funny front ends will be a big leap forward for sportsbike performance, just like the Fireblade was for the class back in 1992. It's good to see a manufacturer give it a proper go.

Vyrus

X2Glider

Tom Cruise owns the big brother version with the 1098R motor, he talked about it while on Top Gear in the UK.

i would love to see a great rider on one of these to see how good they really are. in terms of looks they are just stunning, maybe if this design came from MV, Ducati or Aprilia it could be the next iconic bike after the 916 and MV F4, there is just nothing else like them around at the min. Not sure Vyrus would have the funds to make it big.

21,000!!

For that price and a whole 124bhp...? You could get any of the current Jap 600's and spend the balance on all kinds of tasty extras and probably end up with something only slightly heavier and just as (or even more) powerful. 10k will buy a lot of extras!!! OH yeah, and it's PIG ugly!
