Fischer MRX ready to roll!

The Glynn Kerr-designed Fischer MRX is certainly sharp and aggressive looking

The Fischer MRX, on which we had reported earlier, is now in production – you can buy one today for US$8,000. Designed by Glynn Kerr, the MRX looks quite distinctive, and build quality is supposed to be top notch. It’s powered by a Hyosung-built, DOHC, 16-valve, 647cc V-twin, which makes 77bhp@9400rpm. Performance should be adequate, but with its high-spec suspension components, the bike should handle very well.

The Fischer MRX’s chassis is derived from the Harley Davidson VR1000 superbike, which in turn was developed by top racers like Miguel Duhamel, Scott Russell, and Doug Chandler. The multi-adjustable, 43mm USD front forks and Ohlins rear shock are set up for sporty riding, and are suitably taut.

Visit the company website for more information.

It's being billed as an 'American exotic'...
