Tired of that boring, slow Hayabusa or ZX-14? Want to own a bike with some real engine displacement and midrange punch? If you wait a year, you may be in luck. The MGR Midalu has been in development for several years in the Czech Republic, and is expected to go into production next year. Featuring a 2442cc v-6 developing more than 240 hp and 160 lb/ft of torque, the Midalu is expected to weigh approximately 600 pounds and feature top shelf componentry (check out the billet swingarm).
Of course, production looks to be quite limited, and whether you will ever see one of these on the street in the United States is questionable. Nevertheless, the development is real, and largely financed with state subsidies. The engine design is complete, and the look of the bike is the result of the work of a winner of a design competition that included dozens of designers. Prototype testing will be completed this year.
