Vyrus – World’s most exclusive and lightest sports bike

Rimini is a city and comune in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy and capital city of the Province of Rimini. It is located on the Adriatic Sea, near the coast between the rivers Marecchia (the ancient Ariminus) and Ausa (Aprusa).

Nestled in this famous seaside resort is Vyrus – a small, exclusivist Italian motorcycle manufacturer.

Dream child of Ascanio Rodorigo a true craftsman, if there ever was one. Who describes his passion as follows:

I was a young boy, at the airport of Rimini the Ferrari Team came with a tester and a F40 to make brakes homologation. My father, a jet fighter pilot, was invited to participate and was inside the car. Happy and excited by the adventure.

I walked around the car and looked at every particular. Lights, dashboard, internal equipment, everything did tell me (I’m a race car, only race sensation, rude but efficient) I thought that was the best thing I could see at that time, the enthusiasm of my father become virulent because his approval of noise, velocity, real sensations and feeling. What a beauty!

My dream was a production of little series of bikes that could give me the fantastic sensation of a Race GP motorcycle but with lights and lateral stand!

The rear swing arm hand bended and welded to be the strongest and lightest possible, the special bolts machine worked to save 3 grams each, the seat with 8 mm foam to have the best feeling in drive, the carbon fibre everywhere, the fuel tank cap screw type, the bleeding system of fuel and engine vapour running in carbon fibre canisters, injection and ignition controlled by the most advanced computer, cable wiring almost invisible but the most complicate available, Racing style dashboards, the best brakes. All the best for a “Championship with a license plate”: the dream became true with Vyrus. I never had compromise since was young boy, why should I change now?

Vyrus initially worked alongside Bimota on the evolutionary development of Bimota’s “Tesi” motorcycle.

The “Tesi”, meaning Thesis in Italian, had its origins as a university engineering project linked to Massimo Tamburini.

The Tesi design was easily distinguished by the use of its Hub-center steering front suspension arrangement. The incredible fact is that the Hubsteer front-end is extremely stable and makes bikes using this very easy to handle and drive.

Vyrus split from the Bimota and completed the first evolution of the Tesi’s development, marketing the bike under their own name.
