Did you read NST yesterday? Saw the weird Proton motorcycle? It’s a chopper-style bike done up in orange and features a 1.5 litre Megavalve engine from the old Proton Wira or Iswara 1.5. This engine is connected to the rear wheel via a single driveshaft with a 90 degree joint coming out of the Wira 5-speed manual gearbox.
According to NST, The rear wheel is a 17″ Proton car wheel wrapped with 210/50 motorcycle rubber, while the front uses a 21″ motorcycle wheel with 80/90 motorcycle rubber. Even the brakes and calipers are from Proton cars.
It’s quite a Frankenstein-like piece of madness really, and Proton is planning another prototype with a 1.6 litre Campro engine soon.
