Motorweek’s Two Wheelin’ recently featured the Fischer MRX 650. The segment had a nice summary of the history of the American made 650, a glimpse of the Fischer HQ and an interview with Mr. Fischer himself.
The frame is built by the same company that built the Harley VR1000 superbike and the 650cc engine provides similar usable power as the Suzuki SV650. However, the top shelf suspension and components combined with superbike handling make the MRX an even more versatile bike than the legendary SV.
Check out the video after the break.
The Fischer MRX650 is a rare breed of high spec American sport bike. Premium brakes, wheels and suspension on a custom designed Grand Prix chassis with 650cc vTwin power in Glynn Kerr designed bodywork.
Check your local TV schedule and Tune in to MotorWeek this weekend (5/22 – 5/23) to see the show. Check out Fischer Motorcycles homepage for more information on the MRX650.
A Fischer dealer in Oklahoma is going out of business and has been authorized to sell his Fischer inventory on eBay. Up for bid with no reserve is the 5th MRX 650 off the assembly line.
Fischer motorcycles are built on a race ready chassis with body designed by Glynn Kerr. The MRX650 has Ohlins suspension and many top notch hard parts that you will never see on a bike with a $7999. Add to that cool tech features include fuel level, temperature, clock and performance timers. If you have ever ridden an SV650 you know they are a blast to ride and a common choice for a track day bike. Imagine an SV with sharper handling, lighter wheels, top shelf suspension and killer looks. Even at retail the MRX is a great value.
The current bid is $2600. Have a look and let us know if you pick it up. We expect a full review.
Press release: Fischer Motor Company Introduces Lower Seat-Height MRX
Pocomoke City, Maryland (March 19, 2010) – American motorcycle manufacturer Fischer Motor Company is pleased to announce a special new sport motorcycle with a lower seat height, the MRX 650 L.
Performance sport bike riders expect and demand sharp looks and great handling, but until now this has meant a high seat height that excluded some riders from being able to reach the ground when seated at a stop, or forcing these riders to ride cruisers. Sport motorcyclists can now ride on the street with style, comfort, and confidence on the Fischer MRX 650 L.
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.
