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).

1974 Harley-Davidson RR350 Racer

1974 RR350 Racer

This 1974 RR350 Racer is one of 26 originally made, quite rare! These racers were hand built in the Aermacchi Harley-Davidson plant in Varese, Italy for the sole purpose of road racing. This bike has the twin disc front brakes, double leading shoe rear brakes, 6 speed transmission, Ceriani forks, water cooled, Dansi electronic ignition and is in the legendary Harley-Davidson racing colors. These machines were similar in design and performance to the Yamaha TZ twins and were successful in national events. Harley Davidson imported a number of 250’s to compete in AMA road races, but the 350 is virtually unknown.
