Two-stroke manufacturer Vins Motors of Italy is planning to export their ultralight motorcycles to the USA, Australia and the UK.
The 250cc Duecinquanta road bike uses a lot of carbon fibre and billet aluminium in its construction so it weighs a mere 95kg.
Vins Motors have also built a track-only Duecinquanta Competizione version that is 10kg lighter.
It is powered by a 288cc, 60kW engine with a top speed of 240km/h.
CEO Vincenzo Mattia says they plan to distribute the motorcycles in USA, UK and Australia from June 2018.
“We are actually selecting the dealers for each country (and consequently the final price to the customer),” he told us.
“The price depends on what the customers want about customisation, but as a starting point the price for Europe is €40,000 ($A 62,000, $US47,780) including VAT for the street model and €50,000 ($A77,000, $US59,720) including VAT for the racing one.”
There is no detailed technical information on their website about emissions or lubrication of the electronically injected 90-degree V-twin engine.
However, they say it meets Euro 4 emissions standards and will have a top speed of 200km/h.
