It is apparently more difficult to sell a kidney than I had previously thought (type o- / non-smoker / non-drinker…if you happen to be in the market), which isn’t good news when you are trying to get together some scratch for a Vyrus 986 M2 – the hottest supersport we have ever seen.
Making matters worse is that Vyrus got in touch with A&R, updating us with their latest pricing structure for their Honda-powered hub-center steering masterpiece, which now comes with a price tag of €37,940 for the street bike, and €27,930 for the street bike kit.
That is quite the change from the originally quoted €25,000 street bike model and €16,000 kit, and there is good reason for that, say the folks at Vyrus.
The crux of the issue is that Vyrus envisioned the street bike and its corresponding kit to comprise a significantly lower-spec build kit – fiberglass fairings instead of carbon fiber, cheaper brakes and suspension, etc. That bike never happened though.
Instead, the street bike that Vyrus announced last month is a lot closer to the Moto2 race bike that the Italian firm has been developing, and as such, it costs much more to build, and thus more to own (it is basically now the race bike, with lights, mirrors, and a license plate).
This is good news if you want a truly unique high-performing 600cc sport bike for the street, but bad news if you are on the organ-donor financing plan for one.
