The Fischer MRX, which has been in development for some time, has gone into production and is now available for sale. It’s powered by a Hyosung 650cc liquid cooled V-Twin and the price is $7999.
Something I found interesting on their website was this statement:
A signed original Order Form and EPA exemption form must be submitted with payment to guarantee your order. Please be aware that while the Fischer MRX is engineered and manufactured to comply with all current exhaust and noise emission requirements as established by the US EPA and DOT, along with all state and local requirements, certification is not yet final. The Fischer MRX engine has already been type-certified by the EPA, DOT, and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). You will be required to submit a signed waiver of compliance and other forms with purchase and to register your MRX with your state and/or local governing bodies.
I don’t understand what a signed “waiver of compliance” is. It looks like you’re buying a motorcycle that doesn’t yet meet all necessary government requirements and you’re agreeing to do that. Hmm … Why would anyone do that? Maybe I misunderstand what this means so I’ll try to get some clarification.
It also states the motorcycle comes in a crate with “some set up required.” It doesn’t say anything about where the motorcycle is actually produced, so I’m guessing somewhere overseas closer to the Hyosung engines that power it and the crate is what it was shipped to the U.S. in. This isn’t a big deal except they’re promoting this as “The American Exotic” so I’m not sure what they mean by that, either.
We’ll see if we can get some answers.
Thanks for the tip, Peter!
