Fischer MRX Motorcycle
Fischer Motor Company, an American motorcycle manufacturer, has announced the new MRX 650 L, featuring a lower seat height than the standard version.
According to a Fisher Motor Company spokesman, “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.”
While visually almost identical to the standard MRX, the 650 L not simply a lowered bike. The MRX 650 L has new a suspension design developed for the race-based chassis and suspension geometry found on all Fischer motorcycles, but with new linkage and a special Ohlins rear shock.
Just like the standard MRX and MRX SP, the MRX 650L features a liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-twin engine, Ohlins suspension, and Brembo brake components. With a narrow seat that sits 27 inches above the pavement, the MRX 650 L is designed to make the Fisher brand accessible to more riders.
The MRX series features Fisher’s exclusive Trellispar frame, the world’s only one-piece production motorcycle chassis. The Trellispar frame combines features from other types of frame construction to give riders a precision-tuned chassis.
The MRX rider will experience the precise front-end feel and sensitivity of a trellis tube frame, but with the controlled rigidity of a twin spar frame, according to Fisher. Created in America, the Trellispar frame is the centerpiece of the MRX line-up, and the MRX 650 L is the second of several planned models based on this sturdy platform.
Base price of the MRX 650L is $7999, and Fischer Motorcycles are sold worldwide through Fischer distributors and dealers, and in the United States directly from the Fischer factory in Pocomoke City, Maryland.
