Vyrus unveils Alyen 988

Italian motorcycle shop Vyrus was home to the most powerful production motorcycle in the world, the 987 C3 4V. That bike was powered by a Ducati-sourced 1,198-cc supercharged V-twin engine that made a claimed 211 horsepower. Ten years later, Vyrus is still making some of the most striking and most powerful motorcycles on the market, and continues to use Ducati engines under the saddle. The new Vyrus Alyen 988 might be the company's wildest creation yet. The futuristic Alyen 988 uses a watercooled Ducati four-stroke, two-cylinder 1,285-cc engine with electronic fuel injection and a gear-pump lubrication system. It makes a claimed 202 horsepower at 10,500 rpm and is linked to a six-speed transmission with a wet clutch. The Alyen has a self-supporting composite body and a magnesium frame with a double omega design. The suspension is a Vyrus-designed twin pushrod setup on the front and rear, while the steering is handled by a Vyrus hydraulic wired steering system. The front tire is 120/70 ZR17, while the rear tire is 200/60 ZR17. Look closely, and you'll notice the wheels are made of woven and crushed carbon fiber.
