Vyrus 986 Moto2 bike revealed

Purveyors of extremely desirable motorcycles keep their game up

ITALIAN exotica-monger Vyrus has revealed its new Moto2 challenger, the 986 M2, at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona today, complete with the firm's Bimota-inspired hub-centre steering.

Powered by the usual Moto2 Honda 600cc four-cylinder engine, the bike still manages to stand out from all its rivals thanks to the unique front suspension, which theoretically offers advantages in handling compared to conventional forks.

Whether or not the advantage turns out to be decisive has yet to be seen, but even if it never troubles the podium, this has got to be the coolest-looking Moto2 bike yet. Better still, there's talk of a road-going derivative of the bike later this year.
