IT’S been a long coming but we’ve finally the Fischer MRX 650. It’s a pretty to look at and is a sweet handling to boot.

The Fischer tested the latest model, it’s one has been kicking around for a or two while the importers got it legal in

It runs the old Hyosung carburettored V-twin, whereas Hyosung’s mid engine has boasted fuel for a while now, and is much for it.

As the engine is now outdated not much point in covering it in and anyway if you buy a new Fischer it will the injected motor.

Hyosung’s new has 80 horsepower, sounds great and has a long way from the earlier

The fact the engine shares a striking to that of the Suzuki engine is no

What Hyosung has done the liquid-cooled engine was first is strengthen it.

The gearbox is now stronger, as are of the internals.

And of course the fuel has made it a much sweeter

sets this bike from the rest isn’t the though. It’s the chassis and the styling.

According to Fischer the design is heavily based on of Harley-Davidson’s VR1000 Superbike. The of the VR1000 was never suspect, it did struggle on the power side of compared to its competition.

There’s not much of a chance of the motor overpowering the Fischer and swingarm which is cast with a tubular rear 41mm upside down are adjustable for preload, and rebound and damping, while the rear is an Ohlins unit, similarly

Cast alloy wheels are 17 inches both ends, a 120/60 front, and 160/60 There’s no doubt having the rear tyre aids the

Pulling the show up are twin radially-mounted 4-piston calipers at the and a single 2-piston caliper at the

On the tank there’s a black which is actually upholstered. the leather seat there’s a alloy tail section. I mind the upholstered strip but so turned on by the rough cast piece.

I did like the single underseat which seems to go right the tail, rather than it. As a result the tail looks high, although the seat is 749mm.

As tested the Fischer is a person machine only but you can get a perch as well. And when I say that’s exactly what I but then again there’s of sportsbikes like that on the

At six foot I thought I’d struggle to fit on the Fischer MRX but I was pleasantly surprised to enough room to be comfortable.

are ‘sporting’ in their position and are enough to give a decent of leverage, although the steering isn’t what it perhaps be.

Firing up the motor has it emitting a note from the Fischer It sounds so good you’d replacing it, but then again it no doubt jettison a couple of off the bike.

When you ride the it feels as though it’s but it could just be the carbs the ‘doughy’ feel down

As you let the engine have its head the will roll out to a top speed would keep most happy enough, but it’s the first corner rolls you really get the feel this is the MRX is really designed to be, where its place is.

Most sportsbikes are a in roundabouts and tight corners, not so the It’s so nicely balanced almost like you are riding a bike where you are sitting and proud, not crouched over limited vision and leverage on the

Plush is how I would describe the set-up, but on the road it just up bumps and potholes, and still a stable line in tight at speed, with no hint of or bottoming out under heavy

Fischer has done a fantastic job the suspension. I just couldn’t it in the riding conditions I encountered the test.

I also found the to be very good.

The only I could really see the MRX being improved is by putting in a later fuel injected Hyosung V-twin engine.

And as that’s the new models have then the has already been made.

Australia hasn’t come up a hard price yet but expect to them for just under This puts it in the ball of the middleweight sportsbikes.

It can’t compete with on horsepower but it can on handling.

At this I don’t think we’ll see a amount of riders stumping up the for a Fischer MRX 650 but it does offer a different alternative to the mainstream.
