You are looking at the latest very exclusive motorcycle released by small manufacturer Vyrus from Rimini, Italy. Named the 987 C3 4V this very light weight bike (only 339 pounds) is able to produce 211 hp from its Ducati-sourced 1198cc V-twin engine, boosted by the presence of a supercharger and proudly carries the title of the Most Powerful Production Motorcycle in the World.
And since you probably never heard about Vyrus, a little bit of background to explain this bike. Vyrus is a company which used to work alongside Bimota for the development of the revolutionary “Tesi” motorcycle using a hub-center steering front suspension arrangement. Vyrus split from Bimota and completed the first evolution of the Tesi’s development, marketing the bike under their own name. Headed by Ascanio Rodorigo (who worked closely with famous bike designer Massimo Tamburini) all company engineers are experienced in high-class motorcycles, almost all of them having worked for Bimota or Ducati. Among many other details, ay attention at how the front of the bike is held together… The base version starts at $70,000 with the supercharged edition above $100,000. I told you. Ultra-exclusive.
