Cool bike, lots of gyro technology which is cool to see Kyosho doing. Wonder what the run times are.

Well the video looks pretty cool... But if it's $199€... That's alot cash...
But then Kyosho models are some of the best in the biz...

Hhmmm... It would be so much nicer to have them looking a bit better...

I better get me one just so I can test it for myself... Then I can post with actual experience... But it will be strictly for the benifit of other readers... I won't enjoy it at all... I promise...

Did anyone notice the active gyro technology??? As the bike slows down the gyro speeds up solving the increased stability problem at higher speeds that reduces steering effectiveness.
Cool stuff and more doable in such a small bike with minimal loads.

a very simple solution!!

it will be interesting to see how effective it is,
and if for the more experienced rider it could be more effective with a lightened flywheel, to allow for quicker acceleration/deceleration of the gyro... not needing the extra stability of the heavy flywheel at low speed.

sounds like there will be lots of potential performance gains??

the marketing is along similar lines to the mini-z??
does that mean performance motors for the mini-z will be a possibility?

luke... hurry up and buy one so we can have a look

so far i think the bike looks ok and as long as there are different livery's it could help get a lot more people into the rc bike scene like the mini z owners
cant wait to get my hands on one

from the posted link from dbbam

Caster Angle You can fine tune the caster angle and adjust the cornering characteristics of the motorcycle to match your driving style.

sounds like you can change the rake on the forks!!

It still kind of looks like a toy, not the Kyosho I used to remember, and those forks !!!! I will buy one but what has happened to Kyosho ? they made some of the best scale bikes out there and now this :-( Silverlit much nicer and scale and a fraction of the price. When I saw the first pics of the rc bike and not the real one I was so so dissapointed.

looks like its only available in one version blue yamaha hopefully there might be more options later on might hold back n buying one to see peoples opinion first also not a fan of the giro system unless its on an off road bike takes away the skill of driving i think well thats my opinion anway
maybe if kyosho have success with this they might reinvent the 1/8 hang on rider bring it up to date because we all no there is still a massive following with the original bike
