90 degree V-twin from Ducati
/ 342 lbs
Over the past few years Italian motorcycle builder Vyrus had
become pretty adept at making jaw-droppingly unconventional
machines. Their latest creation, the 987 C3 4V is no different.
Built off a similar platform to the company's previous products,
the 987 C3 4V employs the same hub-center steering system and
front swingarm setup. This system separates the steering braking
and suspension systems to create more predictable handling characteristics.
The most significant difference between the 987 C3 4V and its
predecessors is the engine. It still comes courtesy of Ducati,
but in the 987 it's been upgraded to the same unit found in
the Ducati 1198. In the Vyrus this engine pumps out 185 horsepower
and comes coupled with a traction control system. Top speed
of the bike is 192 mph (310 km/h).
Stylewise the Vyrus 987 C3 4V is incredibly aggressive. There's
so many sharp angles and shapes it almost looks like it could
have stealth capabilities. The matt black paint work nicely
compliments the angular lines.
