Vyrus 986 M2

Although I’m not a big fan of motorcycles, this Vyrus 986 M2 looks awesome. The engineers over at Vyrus made a name for themselves launching some of the coolest motorcycle designs, but now they’ve prepared something a little bit more significant, courtesy of their new 986 M2 race bike that will have a road version by the end of 2011, or at least that is what they’ve promised.

Probably the most important difference between this and typical motorcycles would have to be the hub-center steering that Vyrus has perfected on bigger bikes, like the 987 C3 4V (not a cool name, isn’t it?) This bike was designed for Moto 2 racing purposes and taking into consideration that all the motorcycles in this competition must have the same spec engine, which is in fact based on the 600cc-unit that powers Honda’s middleweight repli-racers, hub-center steering will most likely separate Vyrus from the rest of the competition.

Aside from the cool looks and the hub-center steering, the motorcycle has also other interesting features. Take for example the placement of the radiator which is located under the engine. More than that, the exhaust exists through two very cool ports that poke out above the swingarm. Speaking of the swingarm, the rear one uses a linkage to actuate a shock mounted 90-degree from what is considered to be normal shock placement. All of these tweaks have been done in order to improve rider feedback and for mass centralization purposes.

I really am curios if the road version of the 986 M2 will look just as cool as this one. The company said that they should be able to launch it this September. They estimate that the road version model will have a $34,000 price tag which isn’t that much. We’ll have to wait and see.
