British rider Bradley Ray is set to compete in the Spanish CEV Moto2 Championship with the Vyrus 986 M2. Naturally, the lead-up to the race gave Vyrus and Ray enough time to test out their new partnership. The team and the rider did just that, going through a series of test runs at the Cartagena circuit in Spain to get the Vyrus 986 M2 up-to-speed with the rigors of Moto2 racing.
As it turns out, Ray played a big role in the development of the 986 M2, helping Vyrus improve upon a number of aspects on the bike, including the chassis and suspension, to help it become Moto-ready in time for Ray’s boogie with the rest of the Moto2 field.
But as is always the case when it comes to testing runs like this, Ray was afforded some down-time to get himself acclimated with the bike without the pressure of setting any lap times. Well, that’s exactly what he did and to our benefit, he gladly showed off his riding skills, effortlessly gliding through those corners dragging knee and elbow like the true pro that he is. As an added bonus, the clip also provides some proof that the 986 M2 appears to be running on all cylinders, too. That throaty roar of the bike on the corners is a treat to the ears, that much I can tell you
