Okay, what we can see...chain drive...aluminum swingarm...opaque rear wheel most likely means gyro in there...no standard size batts...1:6-scale.

If it's another parallel link steering setup, I'll ignore it.

The CAD drawing looks like it has parallel links. Oh, well...

Lito,

What makes you think 1:6 scale? Looks very much like the ARX bike to me, just with a different frame.

That four bar steering setup just means aftermarket manufacturers will have to make some parts to fix things.

Would be nice if there were more than one bike at the same scale though...

It says 1:6-scale in the company news list.

"28 Aug 2009
1/6 Scale R/C Brushless bike in final preperation stages. Final testing completed."

Yeah. it would be great if everyone could settle on one scale.

I like the Alum parts sub frame etc.

It does look suspiciously larger than 1/6 though, you have to admit. Looks more like the 1/4 ARX, looing at the chain, nuts, the scale look in general. Could be a typo.. J ust looks like a re-enginered ARX to me too. If it is 1/6 the QRF"400" could stand for a 400 size motor........

When you click on "home", you see the "latest news" on the left. There is stated, that it's an 1/6 scale bike....
But it looks like an ARX copy to me, too....!

Occasional useful idiot...
Perhaps manufacturers could take a hint and just produce 1/5 and 1/8 scale models, they would sell a lot more to those already in the hobby 'cos who will buy an oddball size bike if it means that you couldn't race it in the future. OK, I know most will just get car park bashed but it's just a thought...

the crash bar angle of attack looks odd.

here's a photo of my 1/pi scale bike (with PMT tires too!)...

Maybe the 1/6 scale bike will be able t run against the 1/5 scale one.... I'm in agreement that the scale is dumb... but when it comes down to it 1/5 and 1/6 aren't too far off from each other...

personally I would like to see a 1/8 scale hobby grade off-road bike....

Yeah, the crash bars are mounted strangely. All the wear at one little point on the bar.
