Hi you all,

I'm writing you from Verona.

Fair is really good and there is a lot of interest into the new bike.

If we get a chance we'll shoot a video later.

The bike will be sold as kit, at least at a first stage, with gyro.

There will also be alu wheels front and rear for the experienced drivers that will be sold separately or will put into the box instead of the plastic ones.

To drive with the e.gyro is a blast, you can just give full gas or brake w/o fear to lose the bike control.

Leaning angle is 22.6

More later.

Ciao

Nice bike! Wow, it's big.
What is the weight of the bike?
Do you run it on the ARX-style brick batteries or a conventional hardcase? Is it 2 or 3s?
Also, a thought looking at the pics. A cheap way to boost the sales would be to make a simple plastic add-on to give the rear swingarm that scale superbike look, it would appeal more to the not-already-into-rcbikes-people.
Just a thought.

Hi Z-dad,

the bike uses 2S hard case lipo pack.

Weight is roughly 2.8kg RTR.

The problem of your idea is the mold cost, you need thousands of pieces to justify its cost...

There is more than one way to do it. Shapeways and other similar companies have ways to deal with small series, only cost will be a CAD drawing and a few ordered pieces for display. Put it in the option parts list, there's an idea for you.
You don't have to respond to this, I'm just pouring out ideas.
Keep up the good work!

Hi, the bike will be sold as roller, or as RTR kit.

It's really a great fun to drive!

Is there any chance of getting a picture of it beside a current 1/5 bike for a size reference.

Jena, are you running the new electric gyro with the clutch in this bike ? and have you changed to direct steering or is it still the old rocker style? I have been trying to buy an electric gyro off you for the last 2 months and its out of stock and delivery date keeps going back
