Fischer-MRX

Fischer Motor Company has announced that is has increased its production of its MRX sportbike. With the MRX taking off not only here in the United States, but also abroad in Australia and Europe, the company’s Pocomoke City factory is expecting 2010 to eclipse 2009’s numbers since the bikes release earlier this summer.

“We always knew that once people discovered the value of the MRX, we wouldn’t be able to build them fast enough,” says Fisher President Dan Fischer, “and even though we’re increasing production, we’re still a very small company, and each MRX is hand built right here in the United States.”

Starting at $7,995 with standard Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes, the Fishcer MRX features a 647cc v-twin motor, and a chassis developed by Gemini Technology systems. You can order your very own MRX at fischer1.com.
