Thanks to the folks over at uncrate.com, I think I’ve found my next motorcycle to put into the dream garage – the Vyrus 985.
“750 parts to make the lightest motorcycle in the world” – some philosophical words from Ascanio Rodorigo, a Project Manager for Vyrus Motorcycles. Their belief is that their company is more like a “Bottega”, or a craftstman shop that creates the ultimate hand made motorcycle for their clientele.
According to an article on kneeslider.com, what’s truly unique about the 985 is that it’s “a naked bike with a swingarm front end using hub center steering, a CNC machined frame and powered by a Ducati 999 V Twin. Based on the Bimota Tesi but completely redesigned, the Vyrus has the engineered look of a high tech purpose built motorcycle, unencumbered by plastic bodywork so you can easily see what makes it tick.”
Currently, they have 2 motorcycles in their product line – the Vyrus 985 and the Vyrus 984 (where the 984 has a slightly smaller cc engine).
For more information on their company and product line you can visit the official Vyrus website.
