Word has it that Aurora Motorcycles will be unveiling there new V8 in Milan next week.
Engineer Vincent Messina is the man who designed this street weapon and claims “it will deliver the biggest power and torque figures of any production bike, including the track-only Kawasaki H2R, while remaining completely street-focussed”.
The bike is essentially frameless, with the headstock, swingarm, suspension, tank and seat unit bolting directly to a massive V8 block. All the bodywork is carbon fibre, as is the Hossack/Fior-style front suspension unit. There are Brembo monobloc calipers, and switchgear that hints at programmable traction control, two fuel maps and a pitlane limiter, all controllable via the lefthand switchgear and full colour dash.
A working prototype of the V8 has already been on the road for three months, and a launch is planned for mid 2016, while there has been no indication of price.
