American Superbikes

What do you think of the MotoCzysz C1? http://motoczysz.com Very creative, but do you think it'll be GP competitive?

And what about the Fischer MRX. http://fischer1.com I havent heard much after its initial press release (a year ago?)

Can they happen? Would you buy one?

It will take many years of R&D for them to be competitive and many more for them to win. But I do like the designs of both.

I like th look of the Fischer, but it takes more than looks to compete.

czysz

that bike is a CF frame..... and a lot of new design cool stuff, he had ppl like Eddie LAwson and numberous others aid in design and testing.

The bike is VERY light and the MOTO GP bike is supossed to touch somewhere in the 250 HP mark... as for looks, its a individual taste, as for performance,.... its got potential to win, guess it depends who they get to ride it.

Personally i htink it would be my dream streetbike for weight and performance... since u cna buy it and its street legal, they should run it in the SS shootout drag race series... it would be a KILLER drag bike.

The cycel world article went to great detail on the bike and its design....all in all its got years of R&D and testing under it... i think itll be a bike capable of winning the GP.. question is can they get a rider with enough skill to ride past Rossi....so far no other bike with more power (and ones with more power then the Yamaha are many) has been able to outdo him....Rossi is the MAN to beat... i think itll take a exceptional machine advantage to take the title.

I agree with SSUNR. Anytime you leave a winning team with a dominate bike (honda) because whippping the field isnt a challenge, youre good. and Rossi is that. For the Czysz team, podiums would surely be an achievement, considering the 'drop-in-the-bucket' thier team will be, compared to huge factory efforts in GP.

Does anyone think this bike will be compared with the Britten? or is john in a league of his own

i think their R&D is potent and they will be on a accelerated pace to get some top 10's.... They have a lot of past year GP bikes to learn from.
And the bikes motor is a VERY new and interesting design with its own patents, its got the firing order alreayd in place that the major manufactures were going to go to this year....So they arent running any time behind others like Honda and Ducati.

I'd really like ot see em publish some lap times to really get a feel for what the bikes got in it.

And they cant do it without a exceptional rider and i am not sure they'll get an american with the skill to win too much unless they develop a young rider and then they r looking at years for some major wins. The owner is a good rider from his videos on the bike but he isnt raicng for anyons motoGP team so i dont think its him that can get wins.

You have to remeber tho...Most factory teams have almost 100 years in R&D on them.
1909 for Suzuki, just for example. Look @ proton. They have tons for cash but cant compete in gp. I willing to bet one months pay that they will not finish in the top 10 once this year....And I make a pretty good living....
