This is the Vins Duecinquanta, a motorcycle developed and being made by five ex-Ferrari Formula One engineers.

Vins is the company that showed a couple of projects at Milan a couple of years ago when they tentatively shone a light on a 100cc and 250cc motorcycle idea they had. Back then the motor shown was a tiny V-twin (50cc cylinders) and was self supporting in a carbon fibre chassis.

For this latest motorcycle the bike gets a 244cc V-twin that can be tuned to 90bhp for the track (road trim will have it kicking out 80bhp). The bike’s chassis, bodywork and rims are made of carbon fibre, the front suspension is a double triangle set-up similar to the Telelever suspension used by BMW. The rear suspension features the single shock in a horizontal position, like the OW61 Yamaha and the Drysdale V8.

The bike’s radiator is mounted under the fake petrol tank and gets airflow directly through the front of the bike to keep things cool.

Vins says that the bike is good for top speed of around 149mph.

We would like to ride this. Very much. Indeed.
