ONE FOR THE TWO-STROKE loonies: Swiss design specialists Suter, in conjuction with Italian bike builder Paton are marketing a hand-built two-stroke 500cc GP racer.
The 200bhp, 125kg bike has been masterminded by racing guru Eskil Suter and features a similar chassis used on the ill-fated Ilmor X3.
"There was never really a proper 500cc V4 two-stroke people could buy," says Suter.
The former 250 and 500GP racer claims the company's 500 will make a modern MotoGP machines 'feel like a tractor'.
"I wanted to build a 500cc bike anyone could buy," says Suter.
Just one criteria: 'anyone' must have £90,000 going spare.
