The Vyrus Alyen Is A 202HP Magnesium-Framed Hub-Center-Steered Moto Exotic

Though the company was originally involved in developing (what became) the Bimota Tesi, Vyrus eventually branched out, becoming an independent boutique marque in 2001. Since then, they’ve been building ultra-exclusive Ducati-powered, hub-center-steered two-wheeled exotics, and while all of the Coriano company’s models are incredibly unique, Vyrus’ latest offering — the Alyen — is its most wild design to date.

Presumably given its name due to its alien-appearance, the new Vyrus maintains it predecessors’ hub-center steering configuration, though is powered by Ducati’s 202hp 1,285cc Superquadro L-Twin engine, which is acts as an integral stressed-member in Vyrus’ double-omega-design frame — a magnesium structure with a self-supporting composite subframe and push-rod twin-pivot suspension front and aft. A combination of composite and carbon fiber, the bulbous radiator shrouds, headlight nacelle and flyscreen, and hand-guards (with integrated LED indicators) give the Alyen a sleek and futuristic aesthetic that’s further helped along by the sharp Alcantara seat and carbon under-tail dual exhausts. The bike also has Brembo GP4 series and Rotobox’s new forged carbon fiber “Bullet” wheels. Pricing hasn’t been revealed, though Vyrus’ previous models — that include the supercharged 987 C3 4V, which was the world’s most powerful production motorcycle upon its release – have typically come in around the six-figure mark.
