For those missing the raw performance of a two-stroke motorcycle, here is some good news—Suter MMX500 motorcycle has been unveiled in Switzerland.
For those wondering who Suter is, that is the same company that manufactures chassis that are used for the past few Moto2 seasons, and the same company that built the chassis for Marc Marquez's motorcycle in 2012, that earned him a title.
Suter Racing Technology (SRT) has been involved with motorcycle racing for a very long time and has been supplying components like cylinders, crankshafts, carburetors, exhausts systems and many more to MotoGP bikes since the 90s.
So, getting back to the MMX500 now—it is a GP replica motorcycle that has a 576cc, V4, two-stroke engine that produces a massive 195 horsepower! Fuel is fed through electronic fuel injectors.
The motorcycle was unveiled at an air-force hangar in Dübendorf, Switzerland. It will be produced in limited numbers, 99 to be exact, and will be a track only motorcycle.
Other interesting bits of the motorcycle are a fully adjustable aluminium swing arm, that allows ride height, steering head angle, wheelbase, and riding position to be adjusted. Fully adjustable Ohlins take care of the front and rear suspension system while Brembo calipers take care of the braking system.
Body work is all carbon fibre and customers get to chose between magnesium or aluminum 17-inch OZ wheels.
The Suter MMX500 will be retailed for USD 123,000.
