What the hub-centre design does give you is this perfectly neutral steering through corners at high-speed, something almost unnatural in its performance. Boutique Italian motorcycle company Vyrus is hoping to cause a real shake-up in top-level racing by entering its radically unorthodox Vyrus M2 Factory in the heavily standardized Moto2 competition. Looks like some old school components still relevant here. These bikes seem a long way out of most bike buyers’ reach — and yet they’re still well in the ballpark of a family car, so you’d have to think there’s a market there. It is availbel for 54, Euros approx. There’ll be the Factory — the full-on race version dripping with titanium, carbon fiber, magnesium and all sorts of other unobtanium as well as motoGP-spec brakes and suspension.

There’s no front-end dive vyrs brakes, for example — so the bike’s weight balance remains neutral and the suspension stays in its optimal traction management zone more of the time. The kit comes with the frame, wheels, suspension and unpainted bodywork for 16, Euros that’s approx.
So it will be fascinating to see how Vyrus goes when it takes its brand new cc M2 Factory racer out and pits it against some of the world’s best racebike chassis designers on Moto2’s world stage.
Among the advantages of registering is once a k2 has been registered, a guest cannot post using that name. Infinity Seat is barely there, but it’s big on comfort. It is availbel for 54, Euros approx. Either way, if there’s a chance they can stick it to the fast guys at the top level of international racing, that’s where their real value lies.
At 25, euros upwards, I think its worth the investment as its hand-built. Mikey on Mar 20, at Sannas on Mar 21, at Oh, and there’s streetbike and kit versions available too. Oh, and there’s streetbike and kit versions available too.
Vyrus plans to run hub-center steered M2 Factory racebike in Moto2

Likewise, the achingly gorgeous frame, milled from aerospace-grade aluminum, cradles the engine from beneath as vryus huge departure from the frame of pretty much any other Moto2 racer. Extraordinary winners from the Sony World Photography Awards. Concept cars of Geneva shine LEDs and glowing tires at the future and past.

This is no accident, as Vyrus split-off from Bimota as the Rimini, Italy maker was facing financial difficulties is there any other for Italian vehicle makers? Or maybe just because it looks weird, and motorcyclists can be deeply resistant to change despite their “rebellious” image.
The seat unit seems almost to bolt into thin air, although it’s really attached to the top of the crankcase of the homologation CBRRR motor. Aprilia’s wild, winged RSV4 Factory superbike looks absolutely savage.
And there’s a third option if you’re handy with a spanner; you can get yourself a crashed CBRRR between andand buy a Vyrus Replica kit. No announcement has been made yet on when we’ll see the Vyrus in the GP paddock.
For those who wish to enjoy the Vyrus’ exceptional handling on the road, the roadgoing Vyrus SL Replica will be available for a fairly hefty 24, euros that’s approx. Your Name required Your Email required. Performance should therefore add up to something rather special. After seeing the video, this Italian guy are very passionate about their bike that they personally hand-built just like an AMG engineer building the Merc AMG engine.
It will be the first time in decades that we’ve seen a machine enter top-level racing without a set of traditional telescopic forks at the front end.
If it succeeds, it has a real chance at causing a suspension revolution in the sportsbike world. Expensive, yes, but this bike won’t just grab every eyeball on the block at a rider meetup, it’s also vastly lighter and quicker than anything else in its class on the road — not to mention its insane handling.
Bodywork is limited to a bellypan, a very simple pointy nosecone and a single unit that functions both as tank and lower fairing. Clearly, to get the best out of this sort of suspension system, you need to be hunting for tenths on a racetrack — but since Yamaha’s GTS of nearly 20 years ago, none of the major factories other than BMW have bothered much with anything but telescopic forks.
Since it can fit a Honda cc, maybe U should specify a 1,cc Honda engine as well for good measure. There’ll be the Factory — the full-on race version dripping with titanium, carbon fiber, magnesium and all sorts of other unobtanium as well as motoGP-spec brakes and suspension. It’s notable that Cathcart made no complaints of vague or indirect feel through the front end when he test-rode the C3 4V this has long been regarded as the weak point of hub-center steering and it seems Vyrus might have it licked.
The resulting kit bikes won’t be road legal, but they will kick some very serious arse on the racetrack. Though Vyrus originally planned it as a Moto2 racebike, the firm always said it would make a road-going version, and now it has finally come good on that promise.
