Fischer MRX650 Production Line Pics
Back in 2003 Dan Fischer set out to create the first American sport bike of the modern era. Originally slated to be a Rotax powered 1000cc VTwin the direction changed for a smaller, less expensive 650cc power plant by Hyosung. The Fischer MRX 650 eventually became a Glynn Kerr designed sportbike combines the versitility of a 650cc 90 degree VTwin engine with high end components and exotic design to deliver a unique, affordable, fun to ride machine.

The Hyosung loyal motorcyclists of Korider.com have been lusting over the bike since pictures of it in development started surfacing in 2003. This summer the American made Fischer MRX650 started shipping to customers around the world. Chris Chase of Tulsa Cycle Supply, a guy who has been tuning and racing the Hyosung 650 vTwin for over 5 years has been posting pictures of the bike and bringing forum members up to speed with the many high quality details.
Chris describes the bike saying:
They ride great and the handling is awesome, I can definitely say they are very easy to ride and confidence inspiring . All of the US units are getting fully synthetic oil out of the box, every one is checked and ridden prior to being delivered. Standard equipment on these units are Hella lights, Brembo master cylinder, Ohlins rear shock, custom hand crafted seat, roller bearings on head tube and swing arm assembly, Woodcraft licensed clip-ons, EK gold 525 o-ring chain, LED tailight, Koso full programmable instrument cluster with shift light and multi function LCD screen and color selection, Bridgestone tires, braided brake lines front and rear, and full stainless exhaust.
It retails for $7999.99 USD and goes up from there as most parts can be customized. Below is a video of the MRX 650 in action.
