Vyrus Divisione Motori shows the definitive street version of its Vyrus 986 M2

The versions to homologate the street of the Vyrus 986 M2 presented in Verona at the beginning of this year 2011 with some significant modifications that is worth noting. The little assembler from Rimini has always used Ducati engines in his creations. Specifically, the 1000 DS and Testastretta cooled by air and water respectively, and installed in their Vyrus 984 and Vyrus 985 models. For the Vyrus 986 M2, the engine of the CBR 600RR has been used, as readers well know, in a nod to the Moto2 category of the Motorcycle World Championship.

In this way they were presented three alternatives for the Vyrus 986 M2 consisting of a racing version, a street version and a Kit in the absence of the engine. The hope of competing in Moto2 is clear but for now, we have the street version of this Vyrus 986 M2 that, true to the manufacturer's principles, continues to offer an omega-type chassis and the characteristic front swing arm in the Bimota Tesi style. Not surprisingly, in 2002, the current project manager of Vyrus Divisione Motori, Ascanio de Rodorigo, stopped working at Bimota to found his own company. And it is in this mentioned front swing arm where the changes come from for this “street” version of the Vyrus 986 M2.

This image that we see on these lines corresponds to a Vyrus 986 M2 in its racing version. The first photograph is about the street version in which you can see the rear view mirrors with their indicators integrated in the same housing and the rear part with the structure for the license plate, rear light and their corresponding direction indicators. Changes come in the form of new steering column added to the swing arm that had been mounted until now.

The steering column pretends to give something more front wheel feel to the rider driving while the effects of braking and damping forces are at the mercy of the swing arm. This is how it is tried, (as the more technical ones would say), to achieve a little more feedback on the handlebars of this Vyrus 986 M2. A motorcycle that was scheduled for September last year and that arrives somewhat late but will become one of the most desired superspot, and most expensive although personally of all Vyrus motorcycles, I prefer the Vyrus 984 and Ducati air engine. Matter of taste, of course.
