Whoa

Wow, so much cool engineering on that. Hossack front, super compact lateral shock, the lace-like frame reminds me of the Yamaha Omega frame from the GTS bike. CF bodywork. It is fsking amazing what a privateer can do these days - it invokes memories of John Britten.

Very cool stuff, thanks for posting. Any more details on the bike, rider and team? I'd enjoy following them if and when they get it onto the Moto2 grid.

EDIT: There's this thing called GOOGLE and it is AMAZING!!

It's been around quite a while,it's an interesting idea,but getting it bank rolled all the way to Moto2 and then asking a rider to risk his career on what could be a mad idea,can you imagine trying to work out what was bent after an endo!!!!

Engine?? like all Moto2 bikes is a low power Honda engine built in Switzerland,that bike in the photo probably has a Super Sport spec motor which is 20/30hp higher,as you can't get hold of a Moto engine unless your in the series.

I would assume that Vyrus would find a team that sees the hub center as an advantage and would bankroll the effort.

That front & rear shock linkage is beyond cool, so compact & techy.

The front steering concept is awsome. Is he entering 2013?

Thanks for posting this Shreddr!

Some very nice engineering here..........about the only thing that does not "fit" is the exhaust??

Cheers
