Ronax unveiled the two stroke superbike announced in April. It is capable of 160 hp and it has only 145 kg wet – a real beast.
The two stroke superbike aficionados might consider the Ronax 500 a real piece of art. The germans took the engine which powered Valentino Rossi’s NSR500 MotoGP superbike, fitted it with an electric starter, some lights and made him street legal.
Let’s have one more look at the technical details: 500 cc, two stroke V4, 160 hp and only 46 units to be built. How does it sound? Pretty the same as a two strike engine.
Ronax 500 is also featured with map-controlled fuel injection and has two different mappings: sport and rain. It has an aluminium bridge frame with a fully adjustable steering head. The suspension system is Ohlins: 43 mm upside-down fork – front, Ohlins TTX – back.
It also weights only 145 kg dry.
How much money do you have to pay for this. Well… 100.000 euros (136.000 usd) without the VAT. And if you want it, you must go in Dresden for a personal handover. But, before that, you must pay 30% in advance. Good luck!
