There is a really interesting thread about this new bike over on the RC51 message board. Check it out and post your thoughts here or there. I've brought up an interesting point that nobody seems to have addressed and I'm dying for some more info on this bike. You can view the thread here (http://www.motorush.com/forums/categories.cfm?catid=70&zb=1930113)
edit: Well apparently motorush will not let us link directly to threads so if anyone wants to read about this hit the link, click on the Community button, select the RC51.net general discussion, and click on the RC51 Challenger thread.
Also here (http://www.fischer1.com/) is the link to the Fischer site, here (http://www.hyosungmotors.com/s_engjpl_650cc0.htm) is the engine they're supposed to be using and here (http://www.onewheeldrive.net/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=84&Itemid= ) is a link to a pretty cool article and some pics of the bike.

I am surprised that there is no response to this post. But the message is in the wrong forum.

This is the bike that Aprilia should make. A midget Mille with a 650 engine and the RS250 chassis.

The Fischer MRX is like a heavily tweaked SV650S with a better chassis. Not bad for $10K.

Ride safe.

Looks promising to me - like a cool (maybe too much so) SV650 with a suspension.

what confuses me is the dimensions of the motor. They list it as a 650cc but when they list the specs they say its 100mm x 63.6mm which is the exact same specs as the RC51. Then another weird variable is the compression was listed as 10:1 which is really low, especially for a 650 twin. The SV is 11.5:1 and the RC51 is 10.8:1. Now that just doesnt make any sense. BTW, what is the stock RSV's bore x stroke and compression?
