Its unexpected, its un-explainable, but its true. Italian Botique motorcycle manufacturer Vyrus is all set to go racing in the FIM-sanctioned CEV Moto2 racing series this year. The CEV is the Spanish Championship with the season’s first race to be held on April 26 at Circuito do Algarve.
Vyrus would be entering its 986 M2 machine for the event, and its outlandish appearance is frankly going to blow people’s minds, while its performance, well lets not keep hope to high too soon. To keep the manufacturer within the boundaries of the rules and regulations of the series, they would have to use the same 599 cc liquid-cooled Honda engine that delivers 125 bhp of power and revs all the way till 13,000 rpm.
The frame, as we all know is the most unconventional part of Vyrus machines, would be featuring the company’s own double omega cassis with swing arms at both the ends and a hub-center steering. The suspensions used would be double-rockers with pushrods. This would be quite a unique setup amidst a field of machines that would be running conventional frames made by Suter, Kalex and FTR, which are more of less similar to each other.
The Vyrus 986 M2 would be piloted by 17-year old English rider Bradley Ray who previously finished the races at an impressive fourth position back in 2014.
