    Bikes been around for a bit (few years I'd assume). Bike originates from the Tesi 3D. Supercharged & NA engines, all custom stuff, prices approaching & passing the 100k mark.

    Vyrus has been around for a while. The owner/inventor/engineer Ascanio Rodorigo, 43 helped design an original Bimota Tesi. His Vyrus is based on Tesi 2 and Tesi 2 was actually built by Vyrus for Bimota.

    Very expensive and very exclusive bikes. I personally like it but would prefer Tesi 3 over Vyrus. If Bimota Tesi 3 looks like an elegant narrow waisted ant then Vyrus looks like mutated ant on steroids.

    Here are few links for enquiring minds

    Any new news on the 986 street model

    Has anyone heard anything new about the 986 street model. I thought Vyrus was considering selling some to the general public as well as Moto 2 teams. Also, wasn't there meant to be a kit version (rolling chassis). Imagine a Vyrus chassis with a GSXR 750 cc or a MV Agusta F3 675 cc engine rammed into it.
    ...no rest for the wicked...

    Erico in Denver has a Tesi in their showroom. Pretty freaking awesome.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    Yup, a truly modern design that separates the steering and suspension functions. Nope, nothing to like there, it looks weird....

    We should all of been riding HCS bikes for two and a half decades, motorcyclists are tediously conservative.

    I dare you to buy one Pete.
    I do agree it is some very progressive engineering though. After looking at some pics there are a couple that look pretty cool and sounds like they function great on the track.
