Vyrus 986 M2 — just a little different

The Vyrus 986 M2 is a custom racer built on a Honda CBR600RR engine, and uses the engine as a stressed member, and no telescopic forks. Instead of forks, it uses rods, levers to connect to the handle bars. Built by Ascanio Rodorigo of Italy, the steering is called hub-center steering, which can provide huge advantages on the track, keeping weight balance neutral. Will this setup bring about a huge change in the future of suspension?

Most of the body is carbon fiber monococque, reducing weight. Vyrus plans to introduce a race ready bike, a street legal sportbike, and a kit bike (bolt in your own CBR600 engine).
