Ducati Super Bike


It is now the most powerful production motorcycle in the world - more powerful than Ducati’s Desmosedici RR, Suzuki’s Hayabusa or even Kawasaki’s ZZR1400.
Manufactured by the small Rimini-based Italian company Vyrus - which is best known for producing the Bimota Tesi 2D, the new bike - known as the Vyrus 987 C3 4VV is powered by a 211 bhp supercharged Ducati engine.
It weighs just 158 kg - just 10 kg heavier than an average Moto GP bike from the last season and costs a staggering EUR 65,000 (RM305,000).
Production is limited and highly exclusive. The bike will be sold in four variants.
The 4VV is the lightest and most powerful of them all, and the holder of the fastest production bike title.



The base model 984 C3 2V comes with a 100 bhp two valve 1000DS air-cooled Ducati engine, and weighs in at 150 kg. Next up the model line is the 985 C3 4V, which uses a 155 bhp 999R water-cooled Testastretta Ducati engine sells for EUR 50,000 (RM235,000). Just below the top of the line 4VV is the 155 kg 987 C3 4V which sells for EUR 55,000 (RM258,000) and borrows a 1198cc 1098R engine from Ducati which produces 184 bhp and is the same engine used in the 4VV. With our taxes, this bike will probably cost the same as an average sized bungalow in Malaysia. However, there is bound to be a few riders who can afford it, so maybe we'll get to see it on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
