Vyrus is teasing its new hub-center steered Moto2 bike in the run up to its unveiling later this month. “Our plans is to build a motorcycle that is destined for Moto2, offered at a very competitive price compared to what is currently proposed by the category, but with advanced technology,” said Ascanio Rodorigo of the CBR600RR-powered machine. "In addition, there will be a replica road approved to offer our loyal customers around the world.”
Vyrus is based in Rimini, Italy and founded by former Bimota engineer Ascanio specifically to continue development of the hub-center steering that began on the Tesi. It’s a tiny company that specializes in seriously wild motorcycles, including one that adds a supercharger to the Ducati 1198’s engine to make it the most powerful “production” bike in the world.
“[The Vyrus 986 M2] will be characterized by a very aggressive price, affordable for the teams involved in this formula,” Ascanio told Moto.it. We have already started production in pre-production version of the road, with deliveries in March 2011.”
The official unveiling is scheduled for January 21.
