FGR Midalu 2500 V6 Ensures You Will Czech Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself
Strictly speaking, it wasn’t all that long ago that V6 power was an anomaly in the automotive world. “Normal-sized” family cars (as defined by American tastes of the day) tended to use V8s, or at least offered them as options, while the notion of anything bigger than an inline-four of about 2.2L in an Accord or Camry was crazy at best. These days, though, a V8 anything might get you accused of being a polar bear hater, while four-bangers are still widely considered to be the domain of penny pinchers and starving students, recent oil price shocks be damned.
Yeah, V6-Town is a happening place in the four wheeled world. But sixes of any configuration have always been a rarity in motorcycles, albeit with a few glorious exceptions (*cough*Honda CBX!*cough*). And even then, they haven’t been much larger than the big twins, triples and fours of the world, assuming they’ve been any bigger at all. Now, however, the upstart Czech bikemaker FGR has created a naked bike that boasts a V6 sporting car-worthy displacement and stats that, to be quite frank, scare us.
