There are some exciting motorcycles in development.

Fischer

The Fischer is an american made prototype sport bike. Fisher is going into productions of it's MRX model motorcycle to be deliverd in May 2006.

From http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/article/?article=25016

The MRX features many practical applications of emerging technologies. 
The rigid new 3-piece aluminum frame and 2-piece swingarm were developed 
by Fischer engineers at their Chicago-area facility, and are based on
MotoGP-derived chassis geometry originally developed by Gemini Technology
Systems. High performance adhesives, advanced nylon and plastic components,
and the latest pressure die-casting techniques make the Fischer MRX a 
class-leading motorcycle.

For those of us who have been eagerly waiting for the arrival of a Fischer motorcycle, these are very exciting times.

For more infomration on Fischer:

Star Twin

The Thunderstar is a deisel powered 1200cc inline tripple. This is an exciting project because it has impressive power characteristics and outstanding effeciencey claims. This bike has been covered in MCN among other places. Online the Kneeslider has provided coverage.


Images of the bike can be found here. 80bhp and 165

Some impressive claims about the bike include a 450 lbs. weight, 165 ft lbs. of torque, and outstanding 80 bhp (before mapping work) and 150 miles per gallon. Even if they turn out to somewhat less impressive the bike is still worth watching.

MotoCzysz

Now this bike is neat. A slim innovative design sporting a dual crank v four engine. The cranks rotate in opposing directions to counteract gyroscopic forces. An american bike, and one to watch.


Press includes the Kneeslider, and Twisting Asphalt. Dead tree coverage of the C1 includes a Cycle World cover in 2005. Anyone know what issue that was?
