What we can tell you is that this machine is a revamped, enhanced version of Suter's 2009 500cc two-stroke beast, but to what extent have the modifications gone is impossible to estimate. We've also learned that the bike will be ridden at the 2016 World GP Bike Legend events.

The new machine is rumored to be capable of producing around 200 horsepower from its V4 engine. Even though no name is mentioned on the micro website dedicated to this new bike, the name of the webpage reads "Suter MMX 500" so we might just see it surfacing with this commercial name.

And since we mentioned "commercial", this bike will apparently be offered to racing enthusiasts around the world, most likely on a made-to-order basis.

The photo Suter uploaded on the internet shows a full carbon-fiber fairing for the MMX 500, and this includes both fenders, front cowl and rear section, plus a carbon fuel tank. Visordown reports that the machine could weigh as little as 130 kg (287 lb) and if we factor in the power it is expected to produce, the result looks rather on the crazy side of things...which is a good thing for such a machine.
