Aurora Motorcycles seems to be presenting the Hellfire OZ26, a V8-engined motorcycle in the EICMA 2015 in Milan next week. The motorcycle was the brainchild of an Australian engineer Vincent Messina.
This motorcycle has the nickname 'Dawn of the Ultrabike'. Motorcycle appeared without a frame, with the headstock, swingarm, suspension, tank and seat directly attached to a big block V8 engine. All bodywork using carbon fiber, as is the Hossack/Fior-style front suspension unit.

As reported by the Motorcyclenews on Monday, November 16, 2015, Aurora also use Brembo's monobloc calipers, and switchgear is programmed able to control the traction. In addition, there are two fuel maps and pitlane limiter, all controlled through the left switchgear and full color dash.
Messina claims that the 'clean sheet' design – which has been penned by a team from Australia, New Zealand and the UK – will deliver a unique proposition, and the biggest power and torque figures of any production bike, including the track-only Kawasaki H2R, while remaining completely street-focussed.
