Maico Motorcycles

With the anticipation high around the release of the 2011 Maico M.M.X. off-road models, Maico International reveal that design plans and development are already underway for a British, handmade road-going street fighter motorcycle which is scheduled to be unveiled next year.

Although information on the Maico road-going motorcycle is limited at the moment, the all alloy frame is set to enter the sportbike fraternity with styling and performance. Maico plans to utilize newly designed British-made power-plants for not one but two planned motorcycle models.

Taking on some well established names in the field, Maico International are very aware of the mantle that the new motorcycles will be expected to live-up-to and are confident that they will provide competitive motorcycles both in performance and cost.

Keeping tight lipped about the potential of the new motorcycles a spokesman for Maico International said: "The only information we are prepared to release at the moment is that the bike will feature a stunning new British hand made alloy frame, swingarm and subframe and the initial indications are that the power to weight ratio is quite frankly staggering".
