This is the 1986 World Record Version of the MRD 1 with a 300hp engine. The fairing was designed by Luigi Colani, but not used since the engine had "breathing" and overheating problems.
This is the legendary Central Tube Frame by Fritz W. Egli, first built in 1968. This one carries the 180hp Z900 turbocharged engine for the MRD 1.
This Vmax is not just another tuned Vmax. This one was made by Fritz W. Egli in Bettwil, Switzerland. He worked the steering and swingarm bearings, put in his own "Racing Fork" and 320mm rotors with Brembos. The engine is fed by a two wing Roots-Supercharger (belt-driven) and a 44 mm Weber double carburetor. It puts out some unbelievable 204hp and more than 160 Nm between 4500 and 9150 rpm. Cosworth pistons and hardened Carillo piston rods keep the engine steady.
This is a detail of the spectacular open running belt of the Egli Vmax.
That's the supercharged engines's data. Just look at that torque curve...
