A few things come to mind:

1) Neat!

2) The reach looks painful.

3) How much meat will that spring take off my leg?

Where's the beef? That was a teaser, no real info.

Tor Sagen is a lucky guy (getting to test ride that particular bike).

No info? Maybe but at 330 lbs wet and a 185hp who needs to know anything else. They should drag race this thing against the Beemer.

Nasty bike.

I was thinking about the BMW as well. A fine example of Motorcycle Unobtanium which has marginally better performance than a $13k production bike.

The low and side mounted radiator looks like it would last about 5 minutes. For better and worse "nasty" is the perfect adjective to describe the motorcycle. Seems rather cobbled together, albeit out of very expensive bits.

Can't say I would want one. I would like to have the Vyrus buy in budget though, to deploy on a dream stable of bikes

Oh sure, you could buy an Ultra Glide, a BMW S2000RR, a BMW GS1200, and maybe a couple dirt bikes for the same money. But would they be: "Angry Beasts??" I think not.

The new BMW 1000RR, if not "sociopathically angry" like the Vyrus definitely qualifies as "extremely pissed off". Definitely one for the 100K budget dream stable

And then you strap on the compressor and its over. But yes with the basic model it would be a good fight.Although I will say or ask, what are the electronics package like on the Vyrus?
