Thanks Kneeboy, that would be great wouldnt it, the HOR has been around for so many years. We would be very proud to have a product last that long and still be attractive to customers years later. Only time will tell!!
The front end of this bike is very well planted. The tires have a special profile that give you a steep lean angle and plenty of grip leaned over and on power. I have run it w/o the use of the guide wires and it has great feed back before you lean too far, the rear slides before the front does usually and you can catch it if your on the ball.
With little tuning effort you will get the most out of this chassis and have a alot of fun.

The front brake kit is awesome, its almost too much power but your going to love it. Not only does it look scale it has floating rotors, 4 pads, micro servo, PTFE tubing and stainless wires, new calipers, new lower fork legs, adjustable cable tensioners and bracket plus harware!! Then you can adjust it digitally by the 3rd Channel mixing feature in the RTR Radio. Now you have Digital Brake Bias Control! From an RTR radio? YES! Oh and the radio comes preset at the factory with the bikes name and settings.

Not at this time, sorry. Honestly for the price though you get a heck of a deal and the radio system is worth it for the Brake Bias Mixing alone. You can only do that with high end radios today that cost more than the GPV-1 RTR kit!
