A sneak peak at the Fischer MRX 650

National Motorsports is going to be bringing the American made Fischer MRX 650 to Canada in time for the summer 2010 season.

Just in case you'd like to see what it can do right now, Fischer has posted a little clip of the bike in action. It's not really a terribly new video but we haven't seen, or heard, this bike yet on the streets in Canada so this will give you an idea of what to expect!

Certainly sounds great!

A bit of background on the Fischer MRX 650 from National Motorsports:

"The MRX is a unique and exotically styled sportbike powered by a 650cc V-Twin Hyosung engine. Its angular styling is from the fertile pen of European designer Glynn Kerr. The GP-inspired chassis is a one piece diecast aluminum frame made in the USA; and was developed by Gemini Technology Systems of Wisconsin. Standard equipment on these units are Öhlins suspension, Brembo master cylinder, Hella lights, Woodcraft licensed clip-ons, EK gold 525 o-ring chain, LED taillight, Koso fully programmable instrument cluster, Bridgestone tires, braided brake lines, and a full stainless exhaust."

Fischer coming to Canada

Word on the street is that National Motorsports (the Canadian distributor of Hyosung motorcycles) is planning on bringing the American made, "Fischer MRX" to Canada in 2010.

The MRX uses a fuel injected Hyosung 90° 650cc v-twin engine so that does seem to make National Motorsports a natural company to partner with to bring the bike to Canada.

The MRX will probably make it's Canadian debut at the Toronto Motorcycle show this December 11th, 2009. The MSRP is expected to be between $10,000-$11,000 Canadian.

Why buy a MRX for $10-11 grand when you can get an SV650S for about $9,300? Well, the MRX comes with much higher spec components such as:

- 43 mm inverted front suspension,
inverted telescopic with compression and rebound adjustment
- Rear suspension is
Ohlins single shock with adjustable ride height, compression damping, and spring preload
- Front brake is
a dual semi-floating 310mm disc, Brembo master cylinder, Goodridge steel brake lines

It makes 80 horsepower at the crank @ 9,400 RPM and produces 52 ft/lbs of Torque @ 7500 RPM

More scooters making their way to Canada


It's the year of the scooter invasion! Scooters seem to be on the minds of frugal Canadians everywhere. Even the middle-aged Volvo driver down the street who's never ridden a motorcycle before. Manufacturers are hearing their calls and answering.

National Motorsports is going to be introducing two new scooters from Daelim.

Many Canadian's may not be familiar with Daelim but it's not a new company - just new to Canada. Daelim Motor Corp was founded in 1962 and is based in South Korea. They started out making scooters and motorcycles in a coalition with Honda Motor Company of Japan.

Today, Daelim is capabale of pumping out 300,000 units annually. Their products come with a 2 year, unlimited kilometer factory warrranty.

The two Daelim models making their way to Canada are the Cordi 49cc and the S1-125 which is a 125cc machine.

The Cordi is an air cooled 2-stroke and should have an MSRP right around $1,995. Just shy of $2,000 gets you disk brakes up front and drum brakes in the rear, and an oil injected fuel system.

The S1-125 is a more sophisticated air/oil cooled 4-stroke which will have an MSRP of $3,945. The S1-125 uses an electronic fuel injection system and comes with disk brakes in the rear as well as in the front.

More details on Daelim Motor Corp can be found here.

E-Moto Scooter coming to Canada

National Motorsports, the Canadian importers for the Hyosung brand of motorcycles is bringing an electric scooter to Canada, dubbed the E-Moto G-300LX electric scooter.

G-300LX electric scooter may look like a typical scooter but instead of a small gasoline engine, the G-300LX is powered by a 3 KW brushless DC hub motor with a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery pack. Max torque is claimed to be 88.5 ft-lbs at a near instant 900 rpm, and 3.2 horsepower. It should be whisper quiet AND pretty quick off the line with torque numbers that high.

3.2 hp should be enough power to get you to a top speed of 67 km/h with a range of up to 80 km. It's not likely that you'll get 80 km, particularly if you're driving enthusiastically or near top speed. How far you'll get is also dependent on other factors such as rider size, terrain and weather). But if you don't have a long commute it should be a perfect tool for getting to the office, the grocery store, or just a ride around town.

The scooter produces no emissions of course because it runs solely on battery power. A full recharge should take 2-3 hours.

The ten inch wheels feature disc brakes front and rear. The e-moto has a claimed "net weight" 114 Kg (that includes the battery). It doesn't list a "wet" weight like most motorcycles because it doesn't have fluids!

MSRP is $4,995.00.

Special thanks goes out to the folks at CMG for the photo and details on the E-Moto.
