FGR is new king of motorcycle motors

2.5-litre V6 FGR Midalu

The 2.5-litre V6 FGR Midalu has gazumped the Triumph Rocket III at 2.3-litres for the title of the world’s biggest production motorcycle engine capacity.

While the Rocket had three cylinders of 728cc each and 108kW (146bhp) of power and 220Nm of torque.

It looks miniature compared with the FGR’s 2.5-litre and 179kW (240hp) and 160Nm. Just listen to it!

There is no price tag made public. Instead, you have to go to their website and express interest.

Of course, if you have to ask, you obviously can’t afford it. Actually it’s bespoke, so you can nominate trim and components which will affect price.

Last year, Australia’s PGM V8 came along last year with two extra cylinders in their 1996cc engine with 223.7kW but it costs a hefty price $180,000.

That’s probably the ballpark figure for the FGR which features such exotic components as Ohlins suspension, Brembo race-spec brakes, carbon bodywork, and machined aluminium swingarm.

FGR V6 powerhouse

The powerhouse is a 2442cc, 90-degree V6 engine.

They don’t say were the engine comes from, but it is stamped “FGR”, so it must be theirs.

Previously, FGR was known as a bike builder for the 2012 125GP class, so this is a big step up.

It weighs 262kg, has six-pot exhausts and received a Certificate of Merit for best innovative exhibit at the 53rd International Engineering Fair in Brno in 2011.2.5-litre V6 FGR Midalu2.5-litre V6 FGR Midalu

It is built by FPOS which was established in 1992 to make railings, staircases and machine parts.

It has grown to produce other products and recently has been manufacturing spare parts for road and racing motorcycles.

  1. If it’s bespoke like you say, with a price tag of “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it”, then it’s hardly a competitor for a Triumph Rocket 3. The Rocket 3 is a true mass-production bike that any Joe can purchase from a dealer in their state for same or less price than an average hatchback.
    If you’re willing to special-order a hand-built bike, and/or spend enough money for a house (or at least a substantial house deposit) OF COURSE there are other bikes. Boss Hoss will be bigger, Kawasaki H2R will have more horsepower, for example.

    But the Rocket 3 remains king of size for the every-man.
