Motorbike cognoscenti recognize the Vyrus name, the Italian brand producing exotic sportbikes based on the amazing hub-center-steered Bimota Tesi. The Vyrus story begins when Bimota filed for bankruptcy in the early 2000s. Vyrus principal Ascanio Rodorigo, a former Bimota employee, began producing his version of the Tesi after Bimota let its patents expire while it was in bankruptcy.Wed, 04 Aug 2010
A RARE opportunity to snap up a zero-mile Bimota V-Due two-stroke race replica has come up for grabs on eBay. Launched in 1997, the V-Due was fitted with a 500cc, liquid-cooled, two-stroke, fuel-injected v-twin engine. It was the first time Bimota built an engine in-house, instead of sourcing engines from existing bike manufacturers.Wed, 26 May 2010
REMEMBER THIS? If you don't, or can't quite put your finger in the futuristic-looking V-twin, it's a 1995 Bimota Mantra DB3 - and it's up for grabs on eBay.Complete with wooden, yes wooden, dashboard and a 900cc Ducati air cooled motor, the Mantra was Bimota's £13,500 take on Ducati's highly successful Monster 900. This one's covered jusr 1,10 miles new.Wed, 14 Apr 2010
The new Vyrus 987 flies high even in the rarefied air of ultra sportbikes. It marries a 185-horse Ducati 1198R engine with a hub-center-steered Bimota chassis unlike anything else on the market. Still not cool enough for ya?Mon, 03 Nov 2008

Yamaha are the only manufacturer to use an industrial crane to place some of its bikes up on high rise stands.
