    looks interesting, at least, from the marketing vid. but why not just get a full on 85cc or 125cc MX bike? a part of why i love dh and freeriding, aside from the speed and adrenaline, is the silent whirring of gears and exercise from pedalling from riding in the woods. i'd rather put the money towards a nice honda 85. it would fit just like my dh bike!

    actually i always wondered why bike tech and design didnt cross-over to the scooter displacement market. Instead of those nerdy things, you have street legal 50cc (or whatever the law) lightweight Super-Moto type rides

    I'd like to see how a Fox 40 would hold up on that bike, seeing a few people have cracked them while on a bicycle.

    Sweetness. I bet they're a blast. Everything a 50 is supposed to be, but at the proper scale.

    Not that I'd actually spend MY money on one...

    Isn't that way more than an 85. I was riding a kx110 today at my friends track. I like it much better than a 50 (i can't stand how far up the pegs are on 50's).

    I saw a write up on that in one of the Moto mags recently and I think it was Kirkcaldie riding it in the pictures. It has a Monter T and a Fox DHX so in a pinch, you can swap those between bikes.
