Mrx 650

I heard that the MRX will soon be released in the US..... (means it probably will not get down here for another year so )

Is it the Fisher MRX that you are talking about? http://www.onewheeldrive.net/index.p...ask=view&id=84

If so, that look pretty interesting.

RECENT NEWS! wow!

New Company Says It Will Build Sportbikes In Maryland, U.S.A.
Feb 15, 2006

From a press release issued by Fischer Motor Company:

Fischer Motor Company to Build Sportbikes in Maryland

Pocomoke City, Maryland (February 15, 2006) - Fischer Motor Company has opened an assembly plant in the Eastern Shore region of Maryland to build the company’s new motorcycle, the Fischer MRX. Scheduled to begin deliveries to dealers in May, the MRX is a 650cc, liquid-cooled, V-twin sport motorcycle designed by Glynn Kerr and based on his MRX Concept shown 2 years ago at the Indianapolis Dealer Expo. Glynn Kerr is the President of the Motorcycle Design Association, and widely considered one of the world’s top designers.

The MRX features many practical applications of emerging technologies. The rigid new 3-piece aluminum frame and 2-piece swingarm were developed by Fischer engineers at their Chicago-area facility, and are based on MotoGP-derived chassis geometry originally developed by Gemini Technology Systems. High performance adhesives, advanced nylon and plastic components, and the latest pressure die-casting techniques make the Fischer MRX a class-leading motorcycle.

“We’ve worked hard for a long time to bring this dream to reality, and we’re thankful to all the people who have believed and worked with us to make it happen,” said company President Dan Fischer. “

U.S. Distribution will be handled through Fischer’s already significant -and growing- dealer base. “We’ve had tremendous response from both established and upstart motorcycle dealers,” said Fischer. “It’s important that we deliver a good value to the customers who will be riding the motorcycles and the dealers who will be supporting them.”

The company has received economic development funding and other assistance from the State of Maryland, the University of Maryland, and the Worchester County Department of Economic Development.

Look for more information on the Fischer MRX, including updates, pictures, and specifications to be added soon at www.fischer1.com .

Small amount of news.

I posted a small amount of news I got from an email exchange with a company that is currently hand building some sort of pre-production Fischer bikes.

http://korider.com/forum/modules.php...ewtopic&t=1175

In short, now it's being claimed (though not directly by Fischer) that full production will begin in 2007.
