Today we want to tell you about a new virus that has nothing to do with COVID-19. It comes from Italy, has two-wheels, and instead of the “i,” it has the “y.” Vyrus, the motorcycle brand based in Rimini, decided to present a new motorcycle in the middle of the pandemic, and the new model is anything but “ordinary”!
The new “Vyrus Alyen” has a lot of special features and, above all, an impressive look. It is an Italian-made motorcycle that uses a Ducati Superquadro engine as its power source. The 1,282 cc, 90° 2-cylinder engine, previously used in two-cylinder Borgo Panigale superbike, delivers 205 horsepower at 10500 rpm and is based on a new double-beam magnesium chassis – baptized as Double Omega Design. The engine is accompanied by a wet clutch and a six-speed gearbox.
It features the Vyrus Hydraulic Wired Steering system and a fuel tank of 11-liter capacity. The suspension system follows the same philosophy of previous models out of the Vyrus factory, highlighting its double oscillating front arm hooked to a central damper located just in front of the engine. The wheelbase (1575 mm) means that we are dealing with a large motorcycle – but the size of the rear tire 200 mm suggests that this is not a disguised Diavel.
Alyen’s design, of course, doesn’t need much commentary: the images speak for themselves, with extreme zigzagging aesthetics and the black color of carbon fiber and composite materials dominating. Notice the two exhausts on the back of the model, the design on the Rotobox wheels, the front is reminiscent of a threatening extraterrestrial creature. After all, Vyrus has always featured impressive motorcycles.
I must admit that despite the fact that from the front, Vyrus Alyen evokes mixed feelings, its sideline and the technology used can impress. Information on availability and cost has not yet been released. However, we imagine that the motorcycle will be completely inaccessible to most!
