Equipped with a bespoke 2,500cc V6 putting out 240bhp and something in excess of 150lb/ft, this Czech-made motorcycle will be the most powerful ever when it goes on sale next year. You’ve never heard of Moto FGR before and there’s a reason for that, it’s a tiny, family-run business from a tiny village in the Czech Republic. The bike itself was just unveiled at the local rec center.
There’s few details on the exact specs of the engine, but it’s an in-house designed cooked up by a Mr. Oldřich Kreuz. It’s naturally-aspirated, liquid-cooled, uses a 90 degree cylinder angle, two overhead camshafts and a fuel-injection system of Kreuz’s own design. Bore and stroke is 90x64mm, redline is 8,500rpm, the whole engine weighs 107kg and it’s said to achieve 30-40mpg.
FGR also built a 125 GP bike which debuted at last year’s GP race at Brno.
Once they had that motor, FGR set about looking for a designer to create a bike to house it. 45 designers applied in 2008 and that was eventually whittled down to the winner, Stanislav Hanuš, who got working on the bike you see here in 2009.
What do we see here? Well, it’s still rather vague. Its a performance naked with clear Ducati influcence, a steel trellis frame, a terribly sexy swingarm with exposed webbing, OZ wheels and six exhaust outlets. Suspension and brakes appear to be top drawer.
We bet it’s going to be a complete handful to ride.
Thanks for the tip, Arpad.
