Thanks for posting Bill.

Do you work for Sachs, Cobra, Peirspeed or?
EDIT: sorry Mr. Peirce, didn't expect the owner of a pretty big company to stop by :)

Please do post any photos you have - you can either attach them to the post with the button "add attachments" or upload to a site like photobucket and directly link the photo:

That's pretty cool!

What are the specs on them?

MPG?
Fuel capacity?
HP rating?


Stick some knobbies on that thing I bet it'd be the perfect trail bike!

Tonight I took a 125cc for a short spin.
This was a brand new bike so I didn't go for any land-speed records, but it got up to 45mph quicker and smoother than my racy 88cc for sure and still had plenty to go.

Added new photos (including a yellow one) and a short video of the 125cc in action.

Full ride reports will surely follow, but I can say that the 125cc is everything my 2006er is and more. I especially like the tires, controls, and power-band.

To answer the above question - the tank is about 1.1gal, and depending on riding style (makes a big difference) and conditions you should expect about 80-100 miles/tank if mine is anything to go by. I ride with the throttle pinned quite a bit so can't go much more than 75 miles on a tank, but like I said this is a racy motor.

Don't know HP, maybe around 8ish? Anybody know?

All I know is Moto-scoot is already hard at work developing mods to really make her go. Chief MS mechanic and mechanical engineer Andy knows these bikes and motors inside and out, so when he's not winning races on his superbike at Road America he's dreaming up go-faster MadAss parts.
cheers

How come the yellow one has the old lights on back? What happened to the LED light? Is that a 2010 model? Solid black wheels I like!

Anyone know what the stock front and rear sprocket sizes are on the 125?

no prob, it's always fun to try out new machines :)

RE tailights - where did you hear that the 2010's have LEDs lights? They looked to be the same as my 2006 (incandescant bulbs), except for chromed brake light housing instead of black.

If the rain holds off this morning, I'm heading over to MS and picking mine up. It's been a little while since I've been on a bike, but I'm sure the cob webs will get kicked out pretty quick. I'm stoked as hell.

I was basically in love with these things when I was about 16 (the time where you're legally allowed to ride scooters and mopeds here), but looking at these pics you're tempting me all over again. Damn!

And they're working on 250cc and 500cc versions you say? Nice.. I'd love to own a 500cc madass!

First Thoughts

Picked up my MA earlier today. If anything I'm more in love with it now then when I first saw an image of one about a month ago.

I don't have anything in depth to tell you yet, but from the perspective of someone who hasn't ridden in about 10 years, i can tell you that the MadAss 125 is a very, very welcoming bike and the overall feel of quality on my short trip back to work was more than enough to instill a significant measure of confidence. The MA is beefier than it might seem -or at least to me and my initial thoughts at seeing one- and my 6'2" 280lbs frame didn't feel awkward in the saddle.

The guys over at MS were really cool and took their time so that my goofy ass could get re-acquainted with life on two wheels. In all honesty I have more cobwebs then i thought i had, but it's coming back and anything lacking has everything to do with me than with the bike.

Over the next few days and weeks I hope to add my two cents worth along with some pics too. Others around here can give a more technical overview so I'll just stick to the "dude on the street" perspective.

hey congrats!

I won't be able to stay long or participate in any of the rides due to out of town guests, but I'll be stopping by M-S on Saturday for a short while for the big party so hope to meet you there.

Some people say "200lbs?! Why so heavy??", but sounds like you agree with me that it's just right. Not too light to be flimsy, not too heavy to feel clumsy.

Ride safe and have fun
cheers!
