Ottawa-based Chironex Motorsports, which offers a line of scooters from
50 to 250 cc, has struck a deal with German motorcycle manufacturer
Sachs to import the funky MadAss 125.
The MadAss kind of blurs the line between motorcycle, scooter and moped, but it looks super-cool.
Unique styling features include a large-diameter tube frame that also
serves as a five-litre fuel tank, a banana style swingarm, under-seat exhaust,
tandem projector headlights and, well, stripped-bike nakedness.
It’s powered by an air-cooled 120 cc four-stroke single with a four-speed semi-auto gearbox that shifts via a traditional foot lever.
Wheels are 16-inch and claimed dry weight is a paltry 95 kg (209 lb). It should be available by springtime, pricing has not yet been released.
Chironex has announced the MSRP of the MadAss 125. Retail is $3,499 and
it will be available in four colours: Magnolia (white), Gunmetal (grey),
Charcoal (black) and Madder (red).
