- Vyrus Alyen based on Ducati Panigale
- Gets an out worldly design made from carbon fiber
- Likely to cost around USD 80,000 (approx. Rs 60 lakh)
Italian manufacturer, Vyrus has unveiled the Alyen; possibly one of the most out worldly looking motorcycles today.
The Alyen is built on a magnesium “double omega” frame which houses a 1285cc, L-Twin engine derived from the Ducati 1299 Panigale. This motor puts out 205bhp and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. However, the entire frame, swingarm, and bodywork have been built by Vyrus.
While the manufacturer is known for its futuristic designs, the designers back at Rimini have blown the Alyen out of proportions. The motorcycle features carbon fibre bodywork with styling so sharp, you might cut yourself just looking at it. It has a lot more going on in terms of styling; be it the heavy-looking front end with the huge knuckleguards or the large pair of exhausts at the rear. And to make things even more unconventional, the Vyrus Alyen gets hub-centered steering. This is held by two swingarms in the front which transmit the rider’s input to the wheel via linkages and levers.
Vyrus has’t revealed the pricing of the Alyen yet. Nevertheless, going by the cost of its previous machines and the premium components this motorcycle offers, it could cost around USD 80,000 (approx. Rs 60 lakhs).
