Fischer Seeks Success with American-Made MRX

by

After many years and several false starts, the first Fischer MRX sportbike has left the company’s shipping dock.

“We are looking to establish relationships in several areas, including engineering and product development, marketing, and distribution,” says Daniel Fischer, founder.

Powered by a Hyosung-made 647cc liquid-cooled 90 degree V-twin, the MRX features all-American made aluminum die-cast chassis components; injection molded parts, including the multi-function central cold ram air intake ducts that are assembled in the U.S.; made in the U.S. roto-molded fuel cell; available hand-laid carbon fiber and fiberglass body components developed and fitted in the U.S.; and V-cast multi-function subframes designed and manufactured in the U.S.

Also standard: Ohlins suspension; Brembo front brake master cylinder with Goodridge steel brake lines; genuine American cowhide leather seat; lots of billet, including 7075 aircraft aluminum, adjustable, clip-on handlebars; a dual chamber, undertail, stainless steel exhaust system; Hella high intensity Xenon headlights; a digital rider information center featuring large, analog tachometer and full electronic dashboard withdigital speedometer, fuel level, time, temp, clock, and built-in performance timers; alloy wheels; upside down, adjustable forks.

Available options include Brembo 4 pad brakes, a carbon fiber body and forged alloy wheels.

Fischer tapped Glynn Kerr to style the MRX. Kerr has worked with a large majority of the world’s top motorcycle manufacturers, including Ducati, Honda, Triumph, Aprilia, Harley-Davidson, KYMCO, Kawasaki and Bajaj.
