Monster naked V6 bike exposed

POWER: FGR's unnamed monster V6 bike will be launched in 2012

Czech motorcycle manufacturer Moto FGR has revealed a monster V6 motorcycle capable of producing a whopping 179kW and 203Nm, making it the most powerful production bike yet.

If you’ve never heard of Moto FGR you'll be forgiven. The family-run business is located in a small Czech Republic village and aside from a 125cc GP bike which showed its face in Brno, the company doesn’t manufacture any models.
All of that is due to change, however, when the naked V6 beast (as yet unnamed) is launched in 2012. The company is hoping to sell a total of six models when the bike is launched.


At the heart of the bike is a naturally aspirated 2500cc V6 developed in-house. The liquid cooled powertrain uses a 90-degree cylinder angle and redlines at 8500rpm.

The entire bike weighs in at very sizeable 270kg, but given the grunt of its mill should have no issue producing breakneck performance.

Moto FGR started the project in 2004, and has continued courtesy of generous support from the Czech Ministry of Industry.
