When it involves designing bikes, there isn’t a one who does it just like the Italians. You can belief them to take advantage of stunning machines of current instances, push the technological boundaries or in among the instances, deliver each of these items collectively to create a masterpiece. And that’s precisely what Italian automaker Vyrus, sure that’s what they’re referred to as, have achieved with their newest providing referred to as Alyen.
The design of the bike is so wild and out of the field that maybe the one sense of familiarity comes from the engine, which on this case, comes from the Ducati 1299 Panigale. This means, on the coronary heart of the bike lies a 1285cc L-Twin engine that makes over 200 hp. And effectively, that’s the place the similarities finish.

Those with a eager eye would have seen the shortage of a entrance suspension on the Vyrus Alyen. That’s as a result of the bike makes use of a hub-centred steering setup and the entrance wheel is related by way of a swingarm, identical to the actual wheel. The steering is completed by way of a sequence of linkages which join from the handlebar to a degree shut the entrance swingarm pivot after which to the entrance wheel. The largest optimistic of such a setup is that the bike stays extraordinarily steady throughout braking as there isn’t a entrance nostril dive when braking laborious. Also, all of the braking forces, which might be in the wrong way of the entrance wheel, don’t need to undergo a suspension and therefore, will get straight transferred to the chassis which makes it much more steady. All of this leads to improved efficiency and stability.
Having stated that, there may be suspension on the again and the Alyen makes use of a single-sided swingarm on the rear.
Those who find out about how a hub-centred steering system works would possibly pay attention to the Bimota Tesi H2 which got here out final yr. Here’s a enjoyable truth, the person behind each the Tesi H2 and Alyen is similar – Ascanio Rodrigo.

Another fascinating factor in regards to the bike is that Vyrus makes use of what they name as ‘Double Omega’ configuration. What this principally means is that every little thing is constructed across the engine and within the case of the Alyen, it’s all created from magnesium. You see, due to this design, they don’t want a traditional body as they’ll as a substitute mount every little thing on to the Double Omega across the engine. That is the place the entrance swingarm, rear swingarm, suspension linkage, seat, gas tank and handlebar connects to. And because of this, provides it a small wheelbase which makes it agile and nimble. And once you add the braking stability, then you definitely get a really quick bike.

As of now, there isn’t a phrase across the price ticket of the Alyen or its availability. But be assured, with the Alyen being a technological and aesthetical artwork piece, it’s going to demand an equally mind-blowing price ticket.
