Hello".......the company I work for is selling its VYRUS

Check out XPD-UK.COM

The bike has been fully re commissioned and the MVSA thingy is all that is stopping it joining the V1RYS number plate

If anyone has any ZARD baffles the penta type please contact me for some form of money borrowing interface

Many thanks
Gavin

What actually is a VYRUS? I've seen them but where do they come from? Are they related to Bimota?

More info.

http://www.xpd-uk.com/

Technically, a virus (or in this case a Vyrus) is:

"An affliction that has been known to cause men of otherwise stable mental capacity to spend too much money on a custom motorcycle with which there is hopelessly little factory support for when things go awry. Additionally, it is known to give equal (typically) measure of both extreme happiness and extreme dismay during the duration of the affliction...which sometimes lasts a lifetime. It has been known to spread (as indicated by some Bimotasti on this forum) to others by both touch, sound and sight."

NOW SOLD....pending the transfers of funds

A totally unique piece of engineering...a couple of levels up from BIMOTA.

F1 inspired parts throughout made from materials, best kept in a heated room........most VYRUS do not see the light of day or the road.

Think of it as a very expensive Italian supercar...10000 miles in 10 years is excessive.

As an engineer, I bought it and just looked at it...spent hours admiring its form.

The company I work for, deals with Italian companies and I put this on our trade stand at exhibitions....cheaper and more popular that 3 models in Lycra!

Other exhibitors were envious....we got lots of new work.....only really selling because:

If I keep it for over 2 years, HMRC class it as personal gain and will tax me as 'a benifit in kind at its FULL LIST PRICE'

You could not imagine what it is like to work on.....everything is hand crafted.

The guy who maintains it was the Ducati Race Team Manager in the AMA series and he has never seen anything of the quality or workmanship.

It is currently in an art gallery...from where the bike will move on.
