FGR Midalu 2500 V6: Something Special for the Uber-Rich (with videos)

101716-2top-i

In development for several years, the FGR Midalu 2500 V6 is finally ready for your order placement. Priced at $120,000 Euros (approximately $132,000), the Czech manufacturer FGR can even customize frame geometry for you.

The heart of the bike is the amazing 90° V-6 displacing 2,442 cc, and producing a claimed 200 horsepower (and some unknown, ungodly amount of torque).

Surprisingly, the claimed dry weight is less than 600 pounds, so the Midalu 2500 V6 will move you effortlessly to any sane speed you wish (depending on your definition of sanity). Of course, components carry brand names like Brembo and Öhlins.

The developer also has quite a talent for making quality videos, as each of the two videos below demonstrate:

    I want one…

  2. Gary says:

    Hey Kawasaki! This is the engine (but maybe just a little smaller) you need for the Voyager touring bike, not another Harley wannabee.

  3. Austin ZZR 1200 says:

    No tank seams, no sale

  4. Auphliam says:

    Whew, can’t see the videos here at work, but I bet it goes like stink. Looks like exactly the amount of ridiculousness I’d spend my money on were I to hit the lottery LOL. Better buy some Michelin stock though. 2500cc V6? The torque that thing must make would peel the skins off those gummies like nobody’s business.

  5. mechanicus says:

    Can I trade my TL125 in on it?

  6. Norm G. says:

    well it’s not the worst bike I’ve ever seen…? I mean Friedl Munch gets it, right…? ok they’ve made some nice finishing touches. it does seem to handle like it’s “light on it’s feet”, as it’s thankfully carrying it’s weight low, and really it doesn’t scale out much different than many old school or modern beemers.

    not sure what the white frame is about…? but if that’s my only criticism, then that ain’t bad. seems like they should’ve just painted it red and risk the obvious Ducati and MV comparisons which is what the designer’s going for anyway. looks like a Brutale on steroids.

    let’s see, i score the dual “Goodyear Wingfoot” exhausts and pipe work a 9. score the swingarm machined from billet an 8. score the exhaust note a 9.5 (leaving room for a perfect 10 with more open pipes). score what looks to be nickel plating on the engine covers and foot controls a perfect 10, that looks TITS and should probably be applied to the swingarm and fork bottoms to tie the look together. if you won’t don’t that, then at a minimum black out the frame to show off the engine, or paint it a shade of silver to match the ally bits. overall score…? 8-1/2.

    Nice engineering exercise, and nice bike. A bit of exclusivity for the very well-heeled. Nothing wrong with that. There’s enough cake out there for the rest of us.

  8. 😎😎😎😎😎 says:

    If it had dirt tires and the price was about $8k I would definitely buy one for my girlfriend. 😜…..and if the engine was a little Larger.

    • jimmihaffa says:

      I’m with you…oh and if they added retractable wings that deployed above 160mph ground speed…i’ve been meaning to pick up a light aircraft for my garage and this would kill two birds with one very big stone…literally

  9. CrazyJoe says:

    Honda should do this with its accord v6. It gets almost 300 hp and it’s a 3.5 so it’s bigger.

  10. VFRMarc says:

    I wonder if they would just sell me the motor? I’d figure out the rest.

  11. Jorge says:

    2500cc? why so large? V6 is very cool, but …. 60deg, 1.5L, 10,000rpm 250HP

  12. Frank says:

    I’ll wait for the adventure version.

  13. fred says:

    I would buy if it had a taller windshield and luggage.

    • ApriliaRST says:

      Yeah, and where’s the beak? LOL

      It is awesome, a work of art I’d be afraid to ride. Maybe.

  14. Bob says:

    Way too much metal in too small of a space.

  15. Pete says:

    They should just call it the “Leno” cause he’s the only one who would want and could afford one.
    That being said I think it is pretty bad-ass even if I don’t want it or can’t afford it.

  16. Vrooom says:

    It’s cool, but how big is the market for $132K bikes? Maybe they’d sell 5 of ’em? Given the weight these aren’t a track bike, but probably hell on wheels in the straights. It probably carries it’s 600 lbs very well, but vs. a well sorted Duc or any sportbike, I’d guess it would only see the rear tire once the corners started. However if you have one and want to prove me wrong by having me ride it, do write.

  17. Trent says:

    Nuts.

  18. skortch says:

    Interesting concept… but the rider is basically straddling a 1250cc triple between their thighs. Heat is likely an issue, obviously, but more so is the riding position; I’ve never seen a video with the rider’s knees splayed so far outward. Not sure if I could control a moto like that but I’ll wait for the first ride review on motorcycledaily to be sure…

    Price-wise, the cost is not a big deal in this age of million dollar-plus supercars. It’s a plaything for the wealthy.

    • VascoS says:

      Agree the riding position looks odd, unlike cars engine configuration is so important on a motorcycle that a V6, as nice as it is, looks just out of place on a motorcyle with someone actually sitting on it.
      Heat might not be a problem, 200hp for a 2500cc is a very small specific power figure, more similar to cars than motorcycles. That engine must have a very low RPM limit and probably won’t heat up as much as a normal motorcycle (if they got the cooling system right that is).

  19. Bubba Bleu says:

    You could pull your RV behind it.

  20. Mr.Negative says:

    I see bikes like this, and a little bit of me dies inside.

  21. Scooby says:

    I’ll take a similar horsepower, much better looking V-Max for $17k, thank you very much. Honestly, this thing just seems completely pointless.

  22. MGNorge says:

    With 2,500cc “and some unknown, ungodly amount of torque..” I was just wondering how long the relatively puny looking clutch might last?

  23. viktor92 says:

    It doesn’t look so bad at all, but it’s way too much money.

  24. duclvr says:

    Yikes. Money sure can’t buy taste.

  25. Fuzzyson1 says:

    Gee, if only it had a bed and sink. I could sell everything I own and buy one. Of course I’d have to live on it.

    What a waste of time, effort and material.

  26. Denny says:

    Megalomania on two wheels. Good luck!

  27. Wendy says:

    No beak, it can’t be a real bike.

  28. Chris says:

    I like the look. The vids are very cool. But for the $117,000 difference, I’ll stick with my ZX-14.

  29. Fred says:

    That radiator should see service as a snow plough when needed.
    Sort of reflects on the high power of the V6.

  30. Montana says:

    Can I get it with a turbo or nitrous?

  31. Provologna says:

    I’d be infinitely happier on Suzuki’s circa 2010 concept bike, a 1000cc inline-6. Even that huge GT-type American V4 that just went belly under looked tons better (IIRC the motor was a sleeved down front half of a Chevy 350ci V8).

  32. GoodlyRun says:

    I’ve never seen saddle bags that are ventilated.

    • Snake says:

      I was thinking that you’d better hope that the *seat* is ventilated. Think your Duc Diavel runs hot? Try a 2,500cc V6 under your…errr…cashews :p

      Who needs vasectomies? Spend $132K on this baby and we’ll include the equivalent for free!

  33. Hot Dog says:

    Stand back Eve, I don’t know how big these things are going to get.

  34. WSHart says:

    A sort of an Amazonas for the new millennium? Of course the Boss Hoss have a head start on that claim. For those with more money than common sense, eh? Given the cell phone zombie attitude prevalent throughout the civilized (?) world, common sense is in short supply.

  35. DucDynasty says:

    Do they make a 3 cylinder for $66k? I’m ready.

  36. Tank says:

    $132,000 sounds expensive, but you get free oil changes for the first year.
