At first glance you may think it’s a GP race bike from late nineties. Though it’s remarkably similar to some of the iconic race bikes of yesteryear, it is a brand new two stroke motorcycle manufactured by Ronax GmbH – a two stroke specialist motorcycle manufacturer based out of Dresden, Germany.
Ronax 500 is powered by a 499cc, two-stroke, 80 degree, 4-cyclinder V engine producing 160 hp @ 11,500rpm mated with a 6-speed cassette type transmission with two riding modes (sport & rain). Two stroke power plant features 54.5mm x 54mm bore and stroke, counter rotating dual crankshafts, fuel injection and enclosed in aluminum casing.
The bike is based on Valentino Rossis’s 2001 Honda NSR500 – the last two stroke GP bike to win the race. Ronax 500 features fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, Motogp spec Brembo brakes and carbon fiber components which helps in reducing the weight to 145Kgs further enhancing the power to weight ratio.
Ronax 500 is a limited run model and only 46 units are manufactured. This limited edition two-stroke superbike costs approximately USD 144,000 plus taxes.
