Vyrus Moto2 bike for the road

Italian specialist bike manufacturer Vyrus has stuck lights and indicators on its 986 Moto2 bike, rendering it road legal. The bike failed to attract any teams willing to run it in the Moto2 series, so manufacturer Vryus has stuck some rather unsightly lights on and called it a road bike. Powered by a Honda CBR600RR engine, the bike costs £25,000. If you...

How much?

I'm pretty sure that if I bought £16K of random plastic and alloy off of eBay, put it in a big heap, and and just rode a CBR through it, it'd come out looking nicer than that freakshow.

Sows ear silk purse

Think the opposite is true here a silk purse into a sows ear,ugly and pointless when the donor bike is so good. If your not racing it madness!

If nobody actually runs one in Moto2 then it's not actually a Moto2 bike is it? It's something that (sort of) complies with Moto2 regulations.

At last something new!

Rogerborg is bothered about how the Vyrus looks, sorry but this is all about how it goes.  HCS front end controls dive, allows softer more compliant suspension and will not chatter.  It would be awsome in Moto2 or as an alternative to the motorised bicycles we see in Motogp.  All it needs is one of the very short sighted and conservative teams to test it up against a Suter, Kalex or CRT chassis, then they will see the potential.  This type of chassis will be the next quantum leap in terms of performance for racing machines.  Can't wait for the road bike derivatives that it will spawn.

Similar front ends have been tried before (Elf, Bimota, et al) without much success. As for it eliminating chatter, sorry but no. Chatter is a function of the vibration frequency of the tyre on the tarmac, it's possible (but difficult) to tune your damping to reduce that chatter. If a tyre is exhibiting severe chatter no amount of suspension tweaking will eliminate it altogether. There is a trade off in reducing chatter through suspension work, tuning your damping to eliminate chatter can mean your damping is not now suited to dealing with the rest of it's task. Chatter is not something that is unique to the front end of the bike, although the way a bike enters a corner means that it's effects are more critical at the front. Current rear suspension designs do not eliminate chatter at the rear, a lovely slow mo of chatter on Stoner's bike in the race at Estoril showed this very clearly. As such there is no way this would eliminate chatter.
