Why 1.4?
All bikes are scaled 1.5! Why did you choose
Antonio Perche' in scala 1.4 ?
tutte le moto sono 1.5 perche' questa scelta tecnica ?

Reasons seem obvious to me...
- 1/5 market is full, but 1/4 is open market.
- They saw an interest possible in 1/4 from the 1/4 motard racing series last year.
- A company should look to see how to reuse parts to save $. Looks like they reuse a lot of arx540 parts. Swingarm, rear shock, wheels, front brake, all look like are fronm arx540. I dont own bike but thats what I see.

Absolutely love the body, brakes, and forks! Not a fan of the wheels or swingarms though. I've been soiled with the fancy aluminum wheels for Rc bikes lol as well as fancy SSSA or something with a little more design for looks and polished or anodized but I'm sure it has been designed to perform fantastic. AR does a great job designing their bikes. Wonder who is going to be the first one to do a nitro conversion. Will it be available in nitro? I see a .18 or .21 being the heart for that 1/4 scale

Idk about spoked wheels on the bike. Then it would look more like a super moto than a GP bike but def aluminum wheels for sure!

Can't have aluminum ones either but not all bikes use gyros. Just need to replace the gyro with something that mimics the effect somewhat like an aluminum wheel or wheels with inserts. Now if someone could make a spoked wheel with a gyro that was clear...now we are talking! Give the performance of a wheel that has a gyro and that true spoked look! Someone will be raking in the dough then haha
