The Midalu 2500 is fitted with a 2.5-litre V6 that produces 240bhp and 200Nm of torque. The bike will carry a price tag 80,000 euros when it goes on sale next year...
The Czech Republic isn’t exactly the first country that comes to mind when we think of high-performance motorcycles and yet that’s exactly where the V6-engined FGR Midalu 2500 is from. Based in the Czech Republic, Miroslav Felgr started thinking about building a motorcycle with the world’s biggest engine and the best components, back in 2001. A decade later, his dream has come true – the Midalu 2500 hyperbike is set to go into limited production by early-2013.
The Midalu 2500 is fitted with a 2442cc, liquid-cooled, 90-degree V6 – the biggest, most powerful normally-aspirated production-spec motorcycle engine in the world – which produces 240 horsepower and more than 200Nm of torque. We’re quite fascinated with this motorcycle and caught up with the man behind this machine – Miroslav Felgr – for a quick chat. Here’s what he had to say about the FGR Midalu 2500 V6:
On why he chose to build something like the Midalu
I wanted to build a bike that wasn’t just something new, but also offered the best in luxury with the best possible components. Our company was established 20 years ago and deals with the design and manufacture of special purpose machines for the automotive industry. Since 2003, we have raced motorcycles with our FGR 125 GP bike and starting with this year, we are now in the new Moto3 class. It is the best advertisement for us, especially for the FGR Midalu motorcycle. In Bohemia [old name for the Czech Republic] we always produced motorcycles that were among the best in the world, so we wanted to revive this tradition.
